Here's a question for ya'! I have a spare bedroom (new add - clean plywood subfloor) that will get fairly minimal use. We used a wonderful pecan hardwood laminate on the rest of the new rooms - about 600 sf of family room and hall.
Without going into many gory details we are currently in a position to finish the space quickly and frankly cheaply. The flooring place we've been frequenting recommended glue down commercial carpet as a good solution.
My wonderful husband and I will be the ones to install. We've done quite a few projects lately - the lam mentioned above and sheet vinyl being our recent flooring projects.
Here are a few questions:
1) Is glue down floor a good choice? Stretch it carpet seems really hard and we don't have any of those tools. We do have the trowels for the floor glue (did I mention we are about to tile a bathroom, too?!)
2) Will it be an incredible bear to remove if we ever should decide to change it?
3) What if we had them cut (or cut it ourselves) the carpet into 18" squares and we glue it down that way? (kind of like those FLOR things that are as pricey as installed carpet...)
Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any advice.
