Powered by Mom Blog wants to talk about flooring
Why do I want to talk about flooring? Why not? 🙂 I love seeing a house come together when updating and renovating it and the things that people do to make the home their own. For our house when we bought it 11 years ago, my daughter was only three months old and we had two very big dogs and two cats. For us it was extremely important to select and install flooring that would stand up to the dogs and help reduce allergens in the air as I’m allergic to dust.
We decided to go with laminate flooring in 80% of the house with marble and tiles in our bathrooms and linoleum in our small downstairs kitchen that is used more like a wine and coffee bar area as it’s off our family/entertainment room where we watch movies and get cozy by the fireplace. I’m so glad we went with the laminate flooring! It’s held up very well, it’s easy to clean and unlike carpeting it doesn’t hold dust and dirt and who knows what else.
Our laminate flooring has survived two dogs 100lbs+, numerous people, cats and so much more I’m amazed it still looks as good as it does. Unfortunately I can’t say the same for the linoleum we installed as it has not fared as well. So we are now looking to replace it and as you can imagine my top choice is laminate flooring which works very well in kitchens. We have it in our main kitchen so we know how well it does in there.
The only problem with selecting laminate flooring is that now there are so many colors to choose from and I like so many of those colors! Even though the rest of our laminate flooring doesn’t need replacing I would love some new flooring because I love these colors, I’m leaning towards a dark cherry as the rest of the house is a light colored flooring. Lately the rich, deep colors have been catching my eye. I wonder if I can convince my husband to do more than one room 🙂
What kind of flooring to you have in your home or what kind would you like to have? Feel free to comment we love hearing from people!
