Would a granite tiled entryway look nice going into a hardwood floor? or should it be hrdwd floor all theway?

Question by Michael R: Would a granite tiled entryway look nice going into a hardwood floor? or should it be hrdwd floor all theway?
My spouse and I seem to disagree on which looks better. I’ve always felt that a stone tiled entryway gave a good first impression of “Wow, nice place” (let’s pretend,$$ is no object)
My spouse thinks that you are not supposed to break up the hardwood floor. There is a defined entryway and after that is the dinning rm,kitchen,and hall way which are all going to be hardwood floors.
Does any body out there know where I can find pictures of stone entryways leading to a hardwood floor? Or is this not to be??

I have porcelin tile in my entry way. I had hardwood originally that traveled throughout our first floor but I got a lot more wear at the entryway. Since installing tile, it’s easier to keep clean and less dirt travels into the main living area’s.

    for rental are to big and I cannot handle them (I am a small woman). Does anyone know where I can rent a small wood floor sanding machine or any other ideas on how I can sand my floors without using a heavy duty sanding machine?

    You’ve been looking at drum machines, which is what most pro’s prefer. You’re right, those are wickedly fast, and if you rest even a moment, they can gouge the floor out. There are other sanders available that are sort of like giant palm sanders for floors – they use a giant sheet of sandpaper instead of a drum. Those aren’t nearly as fast, but they’re easier to use. Have you asked your rental yard? I suspect you can rent those as well, I think they’d be used around the edges, but I’ve never used one – I’ve only read they have them. Personally, I’ve always got someone else to finish floors, it’s kind of a skillful job. I hire this job out because I’ve known other people that tried to do this on their own, and it caused them some problems.

      How much would it cost to get a professional to install hardwood floors/carpet?

      Question by Kurenaii: How much would it cost to get a professional to install hardwood floors/carpet?
      Say that I moved all of the furniture out of the two rooms I wanted the floor installed in.

      About how much would it be to install hardwood floors in a small dining room and new carpet in a small family room? Do not include labor.

      Would it be less if we bought the hard wood flooring and carpet instead of them bringing their own?

      Thanks in advance. 🙂

      Answer by knowitall
      True hardwood flooring (the kind you nail down, sand, stain and varnish) will run + per square foot. It might or might not be cheaper to supply your own materials–an installer might get a better discount than you.

      Carpet should run to per square yard–that’s 9 square feet.

      Again, just ask your installer if buying your own materials will save you any money. Maybe it will, maybe it won’t!
