Looking to build with a New home builder and Going through upgrades and options for flooring to estimate cost. Maple wide plank is my dream option but with stairs and on both main and upper hall it would cost $40k.
I am fine with laminate but they recommend not putting it in the kitchen and using luxury vinyl plank floor tiles. Wondering how this would look throughout the house( including stairs)? Would this be really hard on the feet? We have 2 young kids( 2 and 4 months) and a dog so like that it’s more durable but worried it would look and feel like tile under the feet.
