Laminate flooring has come a great distance within the final 10 years, and after 5 years of residing with previous, dingy flooring and 20-year-old carpet, we lastly put in laminate on our first ground! These photographs are just some days after the contractors left so the home continues to be in cleanup mode. However we’re SO in love with our new flooring and wow, what a distinction it made in our home!
The laminate flooring we selected is known as Earthen Chestnut, the Rare Vintage Line by Mohawk. It isn’t offered in massive field shops, so that you’d should go to an area flooring seller and haggle on value a bit. We landed on a value round $2.60/sq. foot for round 1200 sq. ft (excluding labor).
We love the natural-looking hand-hewn end and the variation of coloration. Consider it or not, this wasn’t our first selection. We had been on a little bit of a wild goose chase searching for flooring that “wowed” us however was nonetheless in our value level. Our first selection was discontinued, so despite the fact that this flooring was our second selection, we really feel prefer it was meant to be and are SO proud of it.
I’ve been reluctant to share something new on my weblog these previous couple of years as a result of our previous flooring was such an eyesore and impacted all of our design selections. The lesson is – don’t be like us. While you buy a house that’s in dire want of a flooring replace, for those who can, have your new flooring put in instantly after you shut on the home!
