We were in need of budget help tonight & I needed a price on flooring - One of our "generals" just called to tell us to use $10,000 He said that's "high end" stuff & until we pick out exactly what we want, he can't tell us exactly THERE IS NO WAY I need flooring ideas & alternatives - Give me some crazy ideas that I can get away with - Plus give me some normal ideas that are cheaper than 10k! We have 1680 sq ft upstairs to cover - basement is concrete - Forget carpet - I know it's cheap, but ick - Vinyl sheet for bathrooms? and maybe kitchen? although kitchen is part of "Great Room" Laminate? Wood? How about cardboard - I hear that's cheap! ah! HELP!
