I need to replace the floor in my 104 year old house in Texas. I can't decide what type of floor will be consistent with the age of the house and be most saleable.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

I would think woodflooring but yet I love wood better than carpet. I guess I would also the cost comparison of both since your wanting to sale it.

Thanks so much for your reply. I'm a messy cook so I definitely don't want carpet in the kitchen. I've considered wood but again I'm a messy cook and I worry about stuff getting between the boards or water I slosh on the floor somehow getting between the boards.

if I am thinking right they put a polyurethan (clear coating) on top so there are spaces between the board )at least not on mine)

ceramic tile with sealed joints or sheet vinyl or linoleum is usually best for utility in kitchen areas.
