We currently have red oak flooring throughout our single story home except for kitchen and bathrooms, which are tile. The wood floors need to be refinished, but we're also considering carpet throughout the whole house because we're about to have kids...or at least carpet in the 3 bedrooms.
The question is, if we only carpet the bedrooms, should we only refinish the living/dining/hallway and not the bedrooms because the carpet in the bedrooms would damage the newly refinished wood?
We'd be looking to sell in about 5 years and would most likely remove the carpet to make it all wood again, as it's more sought after in metro Atlanta. So would we have to refinish the entire house again or could just the bedrooms be done. 2 bedroom threshold's is with the grain but one of them is against the grain.
