We have finally decided to replace our worn out parquet floors. There are so many choices!
My neighbor installed bellawood santos mahagoney and they are nice--but pricey. They are happy with them so far, but they just installed them a few months ago. However, I have read some bad reviews on bellawood.
I am wondering if anyone has a rec for a good hardwood in the $5/sq ft range.
I think I want a traditional red oak color. I like the santos mahagoney and also like brazilian cherry, but am thinking the darker color may show the dirt/pet hair more? (I have 2 cats, small dog, and 2 toddlers) Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
At this point I think i want solid vs engineered--but I havenot done all that much research.
I would love to hear thoughts on color and brand recs.
thanks so much! I appreciate any and all comments.
