I'm moving into my late grandparents old farmhouse! Their dining room has real knotty pine wood wall paneling finished kind of a honey oak color. I don't love it at all, but it was one of their loves so I hate to tear it down or paint it, not to mention it is really beautiful wood....just wish it was maybe on the floor. But....

Right now, there is really old laminate on the floor that definitely needs replaced. What flooring should I pair with the wood on the walls?? I fell like hardwood would be crazy maybe? How can I make this less 1950s and more today, or even country cabin feeling?

Any ideas welcome!! Thank you!
