    Neither was oak. One was from IKEA and was alder or something, but they do not sell it anymore. Here is what they do sell:

    One was from Sears--came in 6 foot lengths, was sold as workbench top:

    Our carpenter friend liked it so much he did his kitchen with it, too, although he sanded it and stained it a darker color because his wife preferred that. It looked fantastic.

    I am only doing floors in classic oak 2” boards. Medium tone. That is classic. I never get tired of all of the oak floors I see. Our new house has one room with old oak flooring that has a fancy edge pattern and it is really really nice. Our original pine floors here in current house are not tenable and we have that cheapish parquet stuff over them, now beat up and ready for replacement.

    The bamboo stuff was popular years ago, and probably it holds up well (it was reputed to be very hard. And environmentally friendly! ) but I havent heard it talked aboit lately.

    That grey room is pretty and would be good for my current liestyle of clean object, hard surfaces, grey. Actually my upstairs bedrooms are grey.

    But the bedroom I really want is not one I have. I dont have what I want because
    1) the rain problem
    2) cats and dogs spread their filth all over, and I need surfaces easy to clean.

    But it has occurred to me that in our weekend house I can use one of those upstairs garret bedrooms to create the womb palace I would really like to have. Animals woild not be alloed up there and of course
    I wouldn't actually sleep there because my dog must sleep with me, that is not negotiable, just ask him!

    Here is an example of what I’m talking about. I would love to have one of these cozy red or pink rooms:

    The grey and white is nice. OUr house has hard wood in the house that was built in 1950 but the 70's addition does not. The 70's addition is the dining room and master bedroom/bath. WE used a vinyl laminate because you guessed we had 4 old dogs. The kitchen also did not have hard wood so we used the same thing there. The kitchen and dining room are open to one another so it flows. If not for the dgos we would have put wood in those rooms too. One of our old dogs had dementia so pottying outside or on the pad got to be merely a suggestion. She died but we have one that is 13 and doing well but you never know down the road. What we do for our fur babies. I used to have alot of decorations but having been getting rid of stuff like crazy. So I am watching HGTV and they decorate the house for the people and I am thinking they have way too much crap that they put in the house before the people even move in and put their own stuff around. I think th hardest part about small living is that you really need to be neat. I could live alone in a small space with no issues. WE found out the hard way that with messy DH 1400 sq ft is as small as we can go and he still be alive)
