It’s so exciting! Hubs has been installing the laminate flooring in the Oak House Project! I feel like we are finally getting somewhere!
Because we have two different kinds of flooring, we wanted something that we could easily install and transition from the living room into the kitchen. Ripping out the ceramic isn’t an option, and we also needed something that could go over both surfaces. I also wanted something that would match the existing hardwood in the bedrooms if it’s in our budget to refinish them as we get near the end.
It’s A LOT of 1980’s white ceramic tile. I can’t wait to have it all covered up, it’s nice that laminate flooring can go right over the top.
It took us half a day just to clean up all of our work supplies and clear the area. It’s amazing how much junk accumulates in a construction job.
Everyone was there to help us clean the floor before we got started. 🙂
The color is Benton Cinnamon Spice and It’s just so warm and homey feeling.
We first made sure the area was clean and clear of debris.
The underlayment goes down first and one side has sticky strips that you remove the paper too and stick it down.
Once we found a square corner, and adjusted the flooring to the wall,we started laying and clicking the strips together. We added spacers so the flooring has room to expand and contract. I love how it looks like the old aged oak in the bedrooms. I love the warmth it adds to the room. It wasn’t hard to do once we got the hang of it, but like the up and down of tiling a tub surround wall, it’s a great thigh work out.
Hubs did an awesome job, and the kitchen looks amazing. We were able to get the kitchen done in one day .
Don’t they just look amazing!!!!????!!!!! I am in love with this flooring!
It looks so clean and fresh! I loved our laminate flooring in our home, it was so durable! Make sure you see the rest of the makeover here! And check out the kitchen makeover!
I can’t wait to show you with everything staged and ready to go!!!
