We own a house in Twinsburg, and we are planning to replace our tired old living/dining room carpeting at some point. The big question is whether to replace it with new carpet, or some type of hardwood or laminate wood flooring?
Currently, our kitchen, foyer and family room all have wood laminate flooring in a very 1990s, orange-y oak color. If we went with hardwood, we'd have to replace ALL the flooring on the main floor so that it would match. It would be significantly more expensive than new carpeting in just the living and dining rooms.
I am not opposed to carpet. It's much cheaper and I think it makes the room feel cozy. Also, since the majority of homes in our area have wall-to-wall carpeting, I don't think it's "passe" in this region. However, I still feel pressure to go the hardwood route, since it's so appealing, would be great for resale value, and it's only a matter of time before it's the standard in all homes.
What do you think? What do you have in your NEO homes?
