Need help with an L shaped family room
January 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are considering moving our dining room into the current family room and making the formal dining and living room which is L Shaped into one great room to hopefully fit a sectional and entertainment center. The current living room has a carpet inset and the adjacent current dining room has hardwood floors. I really like the look of the carpet inset and it gives a family room a warmer feeling than hardwood floors. I feel I need to extend the carpet inset into the full room so that the sectional isn;t half on the carpet and half on the hardwood. However does it make sense to rip out nice hardwood floors?
