decisions think about how the room is used and how the floors will look, blend in, and hold up. For living areas - wood. For kichens/laundry/mudroom - tile unless the kitchen blends into the family room or other such area. Then you sould consider wood in the kichen. I love Jody's idea about the heat strips under
Welll thats tricky. I most cases hardwoods are more desirable, but in Fishers it may be different. You want to be careful not to over-do it and put more money in than you can get back. I have extensive knowledge about rehabs in Fishers as I have done 2 myself in 2008, I would be happy to give you some furthur input. Thanks!

Best of luck,
Both tile and hardwood floors are desirable. The issue becomes one of preference. Because of their appeal many home owners have both tile and hardwood in their homes.
We find that people with pets seem to be attracted to tile because of its serviceability. The fact that hardwood tends to scratch gives an edge to tile for pet owners.
the dining or family room area, you should use the same floor covering for all. It will make the area seem
larger. That makes hard woods floors an even better choice because they look and feel warmer. My buyers are almost always more attracted to a home with hard wood floors than tile. Tile is a good choice for baths
and laundry areas. I hope that answers your question.
