    @TheSpoons:  I suggest if you want to pull up the carpets you do it before you move in! It will be way easier of a job without having to move everything.

    @TheSpoons:  If you have to replace the subfloor anyway I would go ahead and put down the new floor.  No sense in outting the old carpet back if you are just going to rip it out again.

    If you hate carpet, then wood is a no-brainer.  $350 is worth loving the floors in your house!

    Five months remaining until you move in or until you move out?

    I would automatically vote for wood floors, however if it’s only 5 months I would go with whatever is cheaper.

    @TheSpoons- In that case then hardwood floors. They are so much easier to clean up and you will be much happier. If you put down rug you will only be still wanting to put down wood and it’s much easier before you are living there.

    Go with the wood floor!  You have (in my opinion) the time to do it and even the time to wait for a deal.


    I also hate, hate, hate, hate carpet.  It’s evil, disgusting, and it soaks up my dog’s fur like nothing else.  You have to replace it more often than wood, and it only looks decent for a little while.  Kids get juice on it, food gets squished in it, you spend hours vacuuming vs. sweeping (and it never really comes out)…

    But you know all this. 😉

    Yep, wood floor.

    I’m the one person (so far) who voted carpet. I like the look of wood floors, but I don’t want them in my living spaces (living room, bedrooms). Kitchen, bathrooms, dining room, fine.

    I also voted carpet.  If the carpet is in good shape, I don’t think there is any reason why you couldn’t move in and put the wood in at a later date.  Its hard to think that getting the house how you want it as a gradual process; I remember when we moved in, I wanted to change everything right away, but I learned soon that I couldn’t do it all at once due to time and money.

    You will be so much happier with wood, it sounds like!  $350 is not much of a difference to just get it done before you move it.  Go for it.
