Kitchen floor suggestions?
Although DH and I are keeping the foreclosed home near the top of our list, we're still looking at some other houses that are in move-in condition. Yesterday we saw one at an open house that we really like, but there are still 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?
