We’re going to replace the floor in
most of the downstairs the entire house, eventually, but first is likely to be the dining room-living room-card room area.
We’ve been considering bamboo floor, for strength/aethetics.
A buyer’s guide from Popular Mechanics
and a color option from Lumber Liquidators.
We know we’re going to go with wood (or grass, wood-like, at least) in these areas, with throw rugs. We’re thinking of doing radiant heating under the floors, since we have to replace all the floors eventually anyway. it’ll be in the reddish end of things, because we both prefer it, and it will not be oak or pine, because neither of us like those for floors (I grew up with pine floors. Just… no).
(some of the links I’ve found in making this post have made me second-guess doing bamboo, but I still have at least a year to make up my mind).
Do you have wood/bamboo/etc floors? Radiant floor heating? Anything you love or hate about it?
