Hardwood flooring installation
 
Hi,

I am buying a new house(new construction). We have vinyl flooring in kitchen, breakfast area and foyer. We are planning to change vinyl to hardwood floors.

I have checked prices online on lowes,home depot and lumber liquidators. I have a few questions and I would really appreciate any suggestions/tips:

1. Is it ok to have hardwood flooring in kitchen?
2. Aprrox area for flooring is around 800 sqft. we have been liking samples anywhere around $2to $4 per sqft but not sure how much labour cost would be for installation.

Thanks,

You can but you have to ask yourself (Kitchen)-do I spill much on the floor, do I drop sharp objects on the floor, ( foyer) do I come in with wet, dirty, muddy shoes. All of these have impacts on wood flooring. I installed Tile in these area's and am very glad I did but I would at least tile the Foyer.
2. Aprrox area for flooring is around 800 sqft. we have been liking samples anywhere around $2to $4 per sqft but not sure how much labour cost would be for installation.
It depends on weather it is prefished or not, if you called home depot they will give you a sqft price but remeber thats site unseen but will give you an idea.
