I’m converting the 2nd bedroom of my condo into a workshop. I’m ready to put flooring throughout the 1,042 sq ft condo and have some decisions to make about material, color, and cost.
I like the look of dark red/brown flooring (like Brazilian Cherry) and at $2.49 per sq ft for laminate from Home Depot, that’s do-able.
But today only, Home Depot has a sale on engineered wood at $2.09 per sq ft, normally $4.39. This seems like a great deal.
What material is better for a workshop? What color is better (if it actually does matter, I’m thinking sawdust, tools and parts falling to the floor, moving wheeled tools and wheeled tables around, etc). But I’ve always liked the dark red/brown color and it would go well with my furniture and wall colors for the rest of the condo.
What about Resilient Vinyl Plank flooring and Strand Bamboo flooring?
What do you recommend? I’m open to 2 different colors/materials for the condo. I’m flexible.
Something to also consier: I have a 100-pound German Shepherd Dog. Sharp nails and sloppy drinking.
