We are going to be replacing current flooring in our condo with laminate hardwood.
The place is on the small side (about 800 sq. ft.) so we definitely want to find ways to open up the space. I've been reading lots of articles about installing the flooring at an angle in order to create an illusion of a larger space which is fine and good, however, the biggest problem now is choosing a color for the flooring that will compliment the granite counters and dark cherry cabinets.
I've attached some pictures of the space. The wall color may or may not end up being changed; largely depends upon the color of the flooring and if it'll be difficult to coordinate.
Ideas? Thoughts? Opinions?
