I have around 1800 sqft, largest room is around 450 sqft and smallest is 180 sqft, I am planning on doing a DIY engineered glue down wood floor installation. The trouble I am having is chosing a good brand. I would like to stay withing an 8-10K budget, Kahrs makes really nice floors but they are pretty expensive approx $6sqft, in comparison the home depot brand is around $3.30sqft. Anderson Bruce at home decor is around $4.50. I have read many forums and they all say stay away from bruce and products from lumber liquidators. Is there really a marked improvement in quality with these more expensive floor products? Do you have any reccomendations on products that will fit my budget ?
