I am pondering on how to go about my project. My house is laid out lengthwise with kitchen, dining room and living room in line. There is currently low profile carpet in the kitchen and dining room and regular carpet in the living room. Under the kitchen and dining room carpet, there is vinyl tile. The living room carpet was installed right to the floor boards.
I want to install solid hardwood through the kitchen, dining room and living room. I'm unsure if I can install 1/8" underlayment in the living room to make up the difference of the tile or remove all the tile. The tile was installed with tar adhesive and it is a royal pain to take up. I did this in a 9x6 bathroom and it was a nightmare. Used a heat gun and scraper. I'd rather not have to do that in a 350 sq/ft area.
What would be the best option?
