So we've been out and about looking at new flooring and trying to decide what we'd like to put down in the kitchen. I want to put down a laminate of some kind and have the look of "wood" since "one day" we'll be ripping out the Gawd Awful carpeting in the living/dining rooms and refinishing the wonderful 55 year old original oak floors. I want to try and aim for flooring that "looks" the same. The biggest argument dear hubby wubby and I have is over the flooring that will be put down in the kitchen. He wants to put down tile, I don't! He suggested another linoleum, and I don't want that either. He's trying to think of what will last and withstand water and spills. I want something that will do all that and look good too. In all honesty this argument is one of the major reasons we haven't updated the flooring in the house. We just cannot seem to agree or even find a compromise....That is, until today.
Look-y what I found!!! I am sooo inspired! (this is my inspiration photo)
Isn't it wonderful? I love the warmth and beauty of wood floors~ the richness...sigh* BUT WAIT! Guess what!
It's VINYL !!! That's right! VINYL !!! Oh, the Gods of faux flooring be praised. A floor that will not only appease hubby wubby but satisfy my need for the richness, the warmth, and the look of wood.
It's vinyl plank flooring and is super easy to install. You just lay it down over your old laminate and it "floats". It has an adhesive on the back and you just stagger the "planks" to give it some interest and texture. We'll be taking measurements soon and I see an installation in the near future.
Yes, I'm doing some major happy dancing over here!
