Question about flooring styles
I've gotten such good advice by reading this forum, I thought I'd join and jump in myself.
We have wood floors through much of our house, but the kitchen and family room have "unique" (that's a euphemism) floors -- cracked brick in the family room; circa-1993 linoleum in the kitchen. We're preparing to jump into an "everything but the cabinets" kitchen update and I've picked a laminate floor that looks like wood that I'd like to install in both the kitchen and family room.
It's not super dark, but the shade is darker than the wood floors in the rest of the house.
My husband worries that if we don't try to "match" the new flooring (in shade) to the other wood floors, it could be unappealing to future buyers.
I say since it's not an open-concept floor plan, it shouldn't be that big a deal. So....conservative approach or go with the style that speaks to me? Help!
