    Nice rooms. I've got a redo that's coming at the end of April, after which I can post some pictures.

    Mine will be getting another bit of makeover along with the rest of the house either at the end of this, or beginning of next, month along with most of the rest of the house. We just purchased a new carpet install. As much as I like the hardwood we put into the living room and kitchen, I like having carpet in the hallway and bedrooms. The current carpet is the builder's grade that came with the house and is original to the house from 20 years ago. When we moved in it was beyond nasty but with a ton of work and patience I was able to get it looking pretty much new again and it has lasted us for the last 7 1/2 years. We are having it done for no other reason than we just want to have it done since we have the house paid for now and are working to completely make it our own.
    This will be the first time ever, that I have paid someone else to work on the house too.

    For flooring, let me recommend vinyl plank flooring (aka luxury vinyl tile). Goes down quickly "floating floor" snap together. Water doesn't damage it.
    When we had our house remodeled before moving the existing flooring in the kitchen, dining room, and half bath was ugly linoleum. We left the linoleum in place and the Vinyl Plank flooring was simply laid on top of it. All 3 rooms took a single installer a day and a half. Most of the other rooms in the house are oak flooring from 1957. The vinyl is quieter to walk on.

    It may be crowded, but at least you have soft stool now.

    Ironically, I was just looking at that this weekend. (My GF and I have gotten both our shots, and it was the first time we’ve been able to wander around a Loews.) that may be the way to go.

    The funny thing is that the asbestos tile is from 1957, too. :) the ugly pink carpet probably went in in the late 60s or early 70s. When my friend pulled the carpet, we were both hoping there would be hardwood under it.

    The Vinyl plank would definitely be cheaper and simpler. And quieter to walk on.

    We used a product called Evoke in a 6-inch width and an oak grain the went well with the existing oak flooring. It's been 8 months since we moved in and we're very happy with it.

    Removing the old linoleum would have cost use as much as the new flooring, more if the adhesive contained asbestos fibers. We left the old flooring in place and laid vinyl plank over it.

    I have not had good experience getting flooring done by Lowes. It took us over a month to get a bathroom done with sheet vinyl. First was the delay in getting the material and then getting an installer on the job. The Lowes estimator had measured the net square footage and not allowed for the "L-shape" or the floor, so we had to wait another two weeks for more flooring to show up and get installed. To his credit, the installer did a fine job. Find a local dealer/installer.
