I wanted to put in a low pile commercial carpeting or carpet squares in the classroom. I lost the battle, though everyone agrees we should have gone with carpet due to the noise factor. At some point we'll probably cover over the LVT with carpet. The building was built in 1967 so the original floor was asbestos tile. At some point it was covered with VCT (vinyl composite tile). To avoid having to do an abatement we left it all in place and covered it all with the LVT.I could do all one shade, but then I have the extra color, probably 700 sf of it.
I would put in that flat carpeting in the classroom. I don't even know if it's called carpet.
I like the continuity of having one type of floor. We have hardwoods on our first floor, stairway and upstairs hallway. For now we have carpet in the bedrooms and bonus room. I'm considering replacing the bonus room carpet with hardwoods. I use it as my home office and carpet doesn't work with office chairs. I may do hardwoods in our master bedroom at the same time.
