We are looking at replacing our cheap carpet and linoleum on our main floor with hard wood or bamboo flooring. I've read consumer reports reviews and ratings. Anyone have advice on this? I'd have to pay someone to install but could try ripping out the old carpet and vinyl myself. Moving furniture and appliances will be a pain. I've looked at Nebraska Furniture Mart and Lumber Liquidators. We have two little boys so I need something fairly durable. I realize wood will dent and scratch.
