Kitchen floor opinions needed!
I posted about this in the "Our First Home" group, but then I realized that this might be more of a style issue than anything else.
DH and I recently sold our condo and are looking to buy a larger single family home. We saw a place that we really like, but there are a few changes that we'd want to make if we were to buy it, one of which is the kitchen floor.
In our little 9x9 condo kitchen we had tile, which although beautiful, needed extra attention to stay clean. This kitchen is 28x12 - a lot more work to maintain!
Right now the sellers have linoleum, which I would want to replace. However, I'm wondering if tile would be a pain. I'd also consider laminate "hardwood," but I'm afraid that 1) With all of the cabinets it would look like wood overload, and 2) I wouldn't be able to match the flooring that's already down on the rest of that level.
Here are pics so you know what I mean:
Foyer/entrance into kitchen
Dining room that flows into kitchen
(I hate the purple carpet in the great room, so that would go - we would probably put a different color carpet down there, so there's no worry about continuing from the kitchen into that room.)
If anyone is interested, here's the rest of the house: Windmill Road house
So seeing what we're working with, what type of flooring would you recommend?
