Interior Design Q&A: Re-flooring a Sunken Living RoomJuly 19, 2015 | 6:37 pm
Q. My husband and I have just purchased a 1979 two-story house with a sunken living room which has carpet. We want to install hardwood floors, but how do we do it when the carpet goes up about 6 inches on the wall? Above that is baseboard, and above that is the wall. Please help – we are at a loss.
A. It is difficult to give you a fair assessment without seeing the space; however, your options may include removing the carpet, installing the hardwood floors, and using oversized baseboard or similar trim to cover the 6 inches where the carpet used to be. Please contact us at 717-249-7052 or firstname.lastname@example.org for a free estimate. Thank you for the question and best of luck in your new home.
