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.
