New Flooring

We finally picked out some flooring and have a plan! When we moved into the new house we knew we didn't want the carpet to remain so we ripped it all out and took it to the dump. We found that the floorboards were pretty dusty and had sheetrock mud on them so Tim got some free paint at the paint store and gave the floors a good coat. We had an idea that we might like to go with a dark wood and he was lucky enough to get a free 5-gallon of a chocolate brown.

We calculated that we needed about 1500 sf of flooring and we've been making the rounds of the local flooring stores in hopes of being inspired by the right look and the right price.

We ended up going with a cheaper laminate. It seems to complement the oak wood in the kitchen as well as the huge amount of granite countertop and backsplash that pretty much dominates the kitchen/living room area.

So now we need to pick out some tile that we want to put in front of the sliding doors in both the great room and the masterbed room and get that installed and then get on with laying the floor.


But until then- we have a pallette+ of flooring the garage!

It is useful to try everything in practise anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)
