One of the most popular flooring projects is to replace carpeting in a dining room with hardwood floors. It creates a separation with adjacent rooms and provides a warm yet elegant look to a room. Another interior design choice when going to hardwood floors is the option of having an oriental or other rug where the dining room table and chairs sit on.
There are a variety of choices for hardwood floors that include natural wood and engineered products made to look like wood. The color, grain, and width of the wood slats are the most common criteria to evaluate when deciding which product to select.
Remove the existing furniture and the baseboards. Determine which direction you want the floor planks to be oriented and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to install the flooring. Replace the baseboards when you are done and move the furniture back to its original location.
