I'm trying to choose flooring for my family room, hallway and office. I'm not experienced at DIY, but am willing to learn because of limited $. I had laminate put in professionally 4 years ago in living room and dining room - there are small gaps, but I still like it - VERY easy to keep clean.
I like laminate better than tile - its warmer and softer to the feet-but can I DIY with laminate? I have 3 kids running in and out, a pool next to the family room - so it gets heavy duty traffic. On this message board I read about painting a floor then placing large area rug? (I have cement slab under old carpet now) How would that look? SUGGESTIONS please! Deb
