Which Floors for my Formal Rooms?
April 21, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I have a formal living room on the right and dining room on the left with the foyer in the middle and stairs to the front. My house is a traditional style with 8' ceilings and faces South. The furniture is jewel tones with two club chairs and one couch with skirts. The tables are cherry wood. The dining room has dining table, chairs and china cabinet in light cherry with jewel tone accessories and wallpaper with a chair rail. Both rooms have thick crown molding. It gets sunlight in these two rooms. I'm replacing 20 yr. old carpet with engineered hardwood. I need help on deciding on a 3" smooth, traditional style like Anderson Hardwood, Lincoln Plank series flooring, or 5" handscraped like Regal Hardwood, Medallion Cherry. Here are the pictures of the rooms.

Emily, I will have the floors installed next month and chose: Anderson Floors, Engineered hardwood, Urban Pioneer, color called Copper Cart, 5" lightly scraped, satin finish. I have been busy removing some wallpaper in bathrooms and painting all rooms before the floors are installed. Debating on whether to remove the wallpaper in the dining room? ( I still love it though). Thank you for your suggestions and I will post pictures when it is all completed.
