kitchen flooring conundrum
We are in the process of renovating our kitchen in our 1898 home. There are layers of linoleum and plywood that we pulled up to reveal a wood sub floor. My original plan was to simply refinish this sub floor (which looks like it might just have been painted a dark color originally). But there is an addition on the back of the kitchen which has a plywood sub floor.
I'm now at a loss- my husband just wants to put wood over all of it, but the idea of stepping from wood to wood seems strange to me. I'm contemplating tile, I'm also considering painting the floor with a design (I painted the floor on the third floor, which was always painted and it came out really nicely). Any suggestions?
