My family is considering upgrading our keyboard to a full-length piano. It is our dream to own a grand piano. We have asked around and we have three choices so far: upright piano, baby grand piano, and full-length digital piano (Yamaha's Clavinova). Other than durability, personally I think digital piano is the best choice because when you have the option to play with music when you feel bored playing piano only. My younger siblings may like to experiment with lots of music too.

I appreciate any input or recommendations. Thanks in advance!

I see you've considered a lot about who and what to use the instrument for, so the last question is the budget. As far as I know, baby grand piano is the most expensive one from your list. I prefer Clavinova because it has more style variation if I ever get bored playing classical piano.

I agree with you totally but apart from the digital option, my dream has always been to actually own a grand piano. Music lovers will tell you how addictive such a piano can be. What's your budget, if I may ask?

I would go with the baby grand piano if it's within your budget. My family has used the same for years. It's very durable and has worked for two generations, thus far, just needs tuning every now and then. It doesn't take up much room and has good re-sale value. You can keep boredom at bay by trying more complicated music, playing duets, or composing your own music.
