I have what you are describing (hardwood on main level, carpeting upstairs (5400 sq ft, suburbs). I think hardwood hall upstairs would look choppy. We have hardwood downstairs and stairs are all wood, carpet on upstairs landing, down halls and into rooms. Berber, neutral color, and it's not been hard to keep clean. 4000 sq feet is a lot of space to cover with area rugs, and it's quieter underfoot with carpet (my 3 kids' rooms and playroom are upstairs, and it's loud even with carpet). A big issue with hardwoods in a house 4000 sq ft who is cleaning it; cleaning hardwoods is a two step process (vacuum to get up dirt, then clean with cleaner--and if you've got an area rug on top, that's another step). Carpet you just vacuum. I have the upstairs carpets cleaned once or twice a year, depending on what they look like--I wait for a cheap offer from the place I normally use, and get it done then.

Earplugs. Get a white noise machine or app for your phone. Even a radio on low to a station you like (I just use the news station) drowns out the street sounds. Put foam blocks onto your windows, get foam black out curtains for windows in bedroom . [ Reply | More ]

I know. There's so many better options for regular queen-sized wall beds. I grew up with a Murphy bed, and it was incredibly easy to fold up with my messed up bedding, so that doesn't worry me. But I know I was rough on the laminate finish, and that bed was trash once I moved out. So much of the price is in the piston lift mechanism. The founder of Treehugger put a bunk wall bed in one of the Soho studios he renovated, and he said he wished he'd chosen outer surfaces that wear into a beautiful patina over time, because he started spending too much of his mental bandwidth on wariness over chips, dents and scratches.
