We decided to buy Hickory wood for the third floor. It has a lot of funky design characteristics, but it’s half the price of the Australian Cypress we used on the parlor floor (something like $3.19/square foot vs. $7/square foot). The parlor floor is a super long room with unobstructed sight lines, so the floors look cool and dramatic. The third floor will have bedrooms and thus a lot more walls, and probably more area rugs, so we didn’t need to splurge as much. But they’ll look similar enough.
