Hey guys, long story short... I'm moving back into a house that I've owned (but leased out) for about 10 years. I'll be living in it for the next 4-5 years. I might be keeping it long-term, or I may sell it... don't know yet. Either way, I want to make sure that my upgrades are consistent with maintaining the value of the home in case I do sell.
So here's my question... is it bad to have different kinds of flooring in all the different rooms? It's a three-bedroom home, with a massive open main room (1000 square feet that really do nothing), a family room, and then another family room in the back. Would it be considered "tacky" and non-desirable if I was to have carpet in the master bedroom, two different kinds of wood flooring in either of the two bedrooms, and then tile in the huge room that does nothing? I don't want to make a bad decision that could affect the value of the home negatively.
If I need to limit my choices, I might pick the same wood flooring for the two bedrooms and the family room, carpet for the master bedroom, and then a single tile choice for the rest of the house.
FYI, the home is in South Florida, so tile is pretty normal to have throughout the house.
