Pretty.

If you don't muck it up with furniture you will have great bicycle parking and room for tools and a workstand.

That looks really nice. For you guys that like the wood look but not the maintenance, you can buy wood looking ceramic or porcelain tile. I just did a closet with the stuff and we love it.

after years of living in apartments i can safely say that carpet is just awful. disgusting and awful.

our current apt has laminate everywhere except the two bedrooms. it is amazing.

Looks nice in both cases. My GF just had the floors refinished in the last room that had carpet in it, and the pictures of it look really nice.

Beautiful looking floor.

I must say, I love not having carpet. We have a large area rug in our living room for the baby to play on, the rest of our upper floor is hardwood and I love it.
