We just moved into a 40-year-old house, it obviously needs updating. This ugly carpet is in the kitchen! Worst of all, the carpet has been glued directly to the floor boards (no padding.) Any suggestions on what kind of flooring I can put in that won't be expensive, but still nice?

We have several rental houses that had berber carpet or very thin commercial type carpet in
bad shape stainwise, all were glued down. We were advised against doing this, but used the caret as underlayment and laid down laminate right over the carpet. Some of them were done over 3 years ago and we have had no problems whatsoever. YOu could not do thisif the carpet is plush, thick or uneven though.
