My husband and I were very very lucky to find a gem of a house last week. It was lived in by a gentleman that lived to be in his 90's. The house was built in the 1890's and remolded in the 50's. Perfect right! The house largely is great. But there's unfortunate carpet in the living and dining room. We were going to remove the carpet and refinish the wood floors. This does not appear to be possible due to the way the sub-flooring was installed for the carpet. We don't want carpet again. Ideally we would want a linoleum rug but that's not going to be possible (I have looked all over the internet and can't come up with anything!) there is nice original looking linoleum but it's kind of high priced. So I thought I would just ask if anyone might have any other suggestions.
