i have a wide line high ranch. So when you walk in the door you walk up 6 steps or down 6 steps.going up at the top you have 4 feet to the wall for the kitchen. to the left is the living room and to the right is the hall way to the bedrooms. I would like to hard wood the livingroom and stairs and hall way.What i would like to know would be the proper lay out which we all know is everything. Would I start from the top of the stairs and work into the living room as that would be the first thing you see when your reach the top of the stairs.
