Welcome to my first post in a 31 day series. Throughout the month of October I will be sharing 31 simple ways that we have given our newly built, builder grade, spec home character.
To kick this series off, I am going to share the huge project that has been underway in my home over the last week. This transformation has been the biggest character building improvement yet.
This project has been therapeutic for the entire family. There is something about pulling up, ripping apart and throwing away the biggest source of stress in our home...the light carpet.
You may be thinking, ok...how is this simple? Hardwood floors are expensive, they require maintenance, installation takes forever and makes a huge mess...it's laminate.
It's not hardwood. Oh yes I did. I put laminate wood flooring throughout the entire main level. No maintenance, quick and easy installation, and the biggest plus is that NO ONE CAN TELL. Seriously, no one can tell that it is not the real thing.
I found this wide plank laminate flooring at Sam's Club for $1.50/square foot.
The "hand scraping" gives it a ton of character. The commercial grade quality makes it almost indestructible.
It has completely changed the feel of our home.
I can't wait to see what everyone else is writing about. See you tomorrow!
