High quality floating parquet. Unfortunately, I didn't have the time and money to reshape the concrete, so it moves a little here and there.

Hardwood, ceramic/porcelain tile, and carpet. Best guess is 700 sf hardwood, 850-900 tile, and 2000 carpet. If you count the front porch it's another 400 for tile.


Where are all of my respected members going?

I spend so much time working out of my truck I feel it is home. The floor changes quite a bit between concrete and asphalt.  Smile

Had that at my old house, not very convenient!

I have a new house and it has about 1400 square feet of carpet and 400 square feet of sheet vinyl. It is a two story so I will keep the carpet on the second floor (all bedrooms) and replace the carpet on the first floor with hardwood and the vinyl with ceramic once I see the first sign of wear.

The reason we didn't do this right away is that we decided to upgrade the the things that are hard to change later, like whirlpool tub, full mirrors in each bathroom, better cabinets, above stove microwave, insulated garage door, bigger patio, better plumbing fixtures, stuff like that....it added up.

Hate carpet, but the stuff is brand new. I also hate the 12" square tile everyone uses. I plan on using 6 or 8 inch tile in the kitchen and breakfast nook and 4 inch in the bathrooms, much better look IMO. I am looking at the new Bruce floating real hardwood floor as I am on a concrete pad and the foam subsurface of the floating floor will provide a little cushion and insulation. Not crazy about the laminate 'hardwood' but it is easy to maintain, got it for my Moms house and it really does not feel or look like wood to me, but thats what she wanted.

Wood flooring downstairs, it is the prefinished engineered variety. Basically fancy plywood with a nice finished oak ply on the top.

Upstairs we have carpeting and all of the bathrooms are marble that I did myself. The next big project is to rip out the carpeting upstairs and replace it with wood flooring to match the downstairs.

I am thinking about doing the same, but I wonder what it will sound like on the first floor with womens high heels and clogs clacking around up there, not to mention 16 big ass claws on this guy. When he lays down upstairs now, with carpet, it sounds like someone dropped a bag of cement!
