Carpet in the bedroom. Always. (For me anyway!!)

Why are you tearing out the wood floor in the rest of the house? Why is it not salvageable?

I don't think its a problem at all to have different kinds of hardwood in this situation. It isn't like its 2 different woods butting up to each other in the middle of the main living areas.

We have two different colors. The floor was built with 3" honey stained oak in the foyer, living room and dining room. I hate it (I like dark floors). I plan on refinishing it some day. When we renovated the kitchen and built an addition we put down wide plank black bamboo flooring in that area. A couple weeks ago we ripped out the carpeting in the adjacent TV room and put down the same black bamboo. So now we have the honey colored on the left side of the house, and the black bamboo on the right side of the house.

I don't think it's that big a deal. Before that we had carpet AND tile AND hardwood on the first floor - much more jarring than two types of wood. If I ever get around to redoing the stain on the original hardwoods, I'll go dark so they are a closer match, but it's not a priority.

I grew up in a house that had oak in the living room, foyer, and dining room, and pine in the upstairs hallways and bedrooms. It seems pretty common in old Northeastern houses.

However, that is on two different floors. Having rooms on the same floor, especially rooms with the same use, split between two different woods would seem wrong.
