Combining carpet and tile in whole house
It's time, finally, to put the floors down in the 4 BR ranch reno house we've been working on for 3 months now. I'd love some advice. Here's the layout:
Living room: Entry door opens right into room. Lined up on the opposite wall to the entry is the opening (no door) into the kitchen/family room combo.
Hall commences at junction of living room/kitchen doorway. Hallway makes a RH corner and ends at master bedroom.
One bath opens off hall, other bath opens off MBR.
The realtor (TG we have a contract of sale!) advises a tile entry, but carpet in LR. He thinks the carpet should continue down the hall and into each BR - which of course will get carpet.
I'm for tiling the LR, hall, baths and Kitchen/FR and using carpet only in the BR's. He says carpet will be less expensive and I should forget what I want since I'm not going to live there. Am I nuts for considering my plan? Should I just bite the bullet and carpet a hallway? (Ugh....)
