Home projects have virtually come to a standstill this winter around my place. But as the time draws closer to putting this house on the market, there are projects that still need to be done! One of the biggest things we wanted to do was to replace the super-disgusting kitchen floor! Ugh! Now, I know this floor started out in its beginnings as a lovely congoleum (or something of that nature) and it shined and looked all pretty, but after years of neglect and abuse (which includes tears and cigarette burns), alas, the time finally came for it to be buried -- underneath a new beautiful floor, that is!
After shopping & talking and talking & shopping for the perfect floor to install, we made the decision to put in laminate. Now, we have never used laminate flooring in any of our houses, it's always been carpet, hardwood or bamboo (which I happen to really love). But laminate flooring has come a long, long way from its beginnings! Here are a few pictures of the project. There aren't many pictures because it was a relatively easy project...but we'll get our money back plus a whole lot more when the house goes on the market! It's amazing how a new floor will make a room look completely different...
Here is an image of the finished project.
