Wood Floors -Confused
Came across this forum today. Usually hang out in the garden forums and never thought to check out forums for inside. I am having a design/decor issue with wooden floors. We have an open floor plan foyer/living/dining/den. Eight months ago we put eng. oak floors in the master to match as close as possible what's in the living area. Needless to say, it doesn't match (color or grain) at all. The bedroom is rotary cut (more grain) and the other rooms aren't. We are removing the wood from the living areas and trying to figure out what to do. I think the bedroom floor is too busy with the swirls and lines. Husband thinks we should keep it the same. At this point (and price) I wish we could cover it all with laminate. New flooring guy wants to do hickory, but I really like oak even though he says its outdated. Help.
