Q:

 We are thinking about replacing our living room carpet with hardwood floors. We currently have oak in the kitchen which abuts to the living room carpet. We’re not sure how to make the transition or if it would be best to replace the oak in the kitchen. We have a log home and we are not sure if that would be too much hardwood. We do like the looks of plank flooring and can get it locally from a lumber mill near here. Should we leave the carpet as is, or go ahead with the hardwood floor?
