I am in the process of taking up ceramic tile in a kitchen and carpeting in a living room and plan to replace with 3/4 solid pre-finish hardwood. I never realized how many products are out there and to say the least I am very overwhelmed. Every time I think I've made my decision - I then read negative about the product. I was really considering the Bellawood until I read many negative things about how the quality of the product has gone downhill. I then was looking at the Bruce Hardwood that HD and ***** has right on the shelf. It looks nice but am concerned about the quality of the product that is right off the shelf Vs something special ordered. (both have the same warranty on the finish) and the beveled edge also has me with questions. My kids are slobs and worried about gaps that will become dirt traps. Can anyone give me some advice on a quality product that will not cost me a fortune and someone clarify the different kinds of edges and is one better than another? I'm thinking the square edge is better but like I said I'm very overwhelmed. I am looking to stay in the 4-5 sq ft price range. Thanks Karen Z
