Hi all. Thanks for your input down below on flooring for my kitchen/dining/hall. I think I'd like to use hardwood. However, the cost is a bit prohibitive, since I'd like it to be in about 750 sq feet of my new home! How difficult is it to install, and am I insane for even thinking that we could do it ourselves? Since it will be in a kitchen, it's got to be done right. Any input? I consider myself to be a fairly handy person - moreso than my husband! Thanks again!
