Before we moved in, Derek replaced all the flooring in the main living spaces. The most economical way to have nice floors was to have Hubble put in carpet everywhere (even in the dining area, ew!) and then we would change it before moving in. Now we have beautiful laminate flooring running through our entry, hallway, piano room, kitchen, dining area and living room.
I love it! Doesn't it look great? Now we need to get the new baseboards up!
