So we have beautiful wood laminate flooring through out most of our home. You can see it in the background here:
I like it...I love it even...but the problem is that is stops before the entryway/living room.
The living room is covered is creamish carpet that is beyond stained from muddy shoes coming in the door. You can see a bit of it under the Sharpie rug here:
So this is where I need your help...should I just extend the laminate hardwood throughout the entire house or will that be too many hard surfaces? Should I make a slate entryway by the front door? What has worked for you in an entry/living room space?? I need your help!!
Of coursethen there is the whole -- don't bring new carpet fumes into your house -- and I wonder if the fumes are any better or worse than laminate flooring...ahh the questions... I did look up the EPA recommendations for carpeting and they simply didn't help a bit.... Your thoughts?!?
