long winded! cork floor in a resale
May I have a bit of guidance from any & a'sundry, please. We're getting ready to market a 20-yr old, 3-lvl townhouse in Ft Belvoir, Va. area. Consulted with several local REAs and all concur: NEEDS new main-lvl flooring.
Currently there is sheet linoleum in the 12x12 kitchen & 3x7 powder room, carpet in the 10x12/11x20 dining/living room, and wood-look boards in the entry way. *blush* *hangs head in shame * all still original builders grade..We already anticipated budgeting replacement.
We're in a pocket of older "entry" (1970-1990), recent "luxury" (early 2000s), and coming attractions of "executive luxury" townhouse subdivisions. REAs haven't been too helpful with suggestions/recommendations for main-lvl flooring. Just: It needs to be replaced.
I'm leaning toward mid-grade Millstead brand cork 5.5" plank in Natural throughout. It is very sedate in colour & visual texture. A neutral, neither warm nor cool. Walls are all Valspar White & trim/doors are Valspar Ultra White. Except for the steel front door inside which is Behr Dark Green baked on ;-).
Kitchen cabinets are restained Minwax Walnut, countertops are Formica Antique Mascarello, appliances are black. LR/DR furniture will be staged once flooring is in.
This is definitely a Relo/Move-in-Ready area. So, main-lvl gets done. Please, any brain-storming is greatly appreciated!
