Wood floors with vaulted ceilings

Posted by nrpyle (My Page) on

My husband and I are considering purchasing a home with lavender carpeting that we will obviously want to replace. I would like to install some dark stained oak flooring throughout or at a minimum of the first floor. Our one hesitation is the great room is a fairly large space with vaulted ceilings. What are some ways to have the hardwood yet minimize echoing and keeping a warm feeling in the room? I would paint the room a mid-tone warm grey.

They sell sound dampening under layment and it works well. If you are hiring pros talk with them. There are many options.

If doing this project yourself find a hardwood floor distributor for the material.

Oh wonderful! I had no idea that existed. Thank you so much!

Keep in mind though you will always have some of an echo. Cant eliminate it totally.

There are different levels. I. E. you could just use like a felt pad ( cheap not the best) or you could using something called Floor Muffler ( better but around $200 for 100sqft. )

Some distributor might have testing displays to show you just how effective these can be. Take some time and look around
