Hey guys!! I’m so excited to finally share with you all the flooring choice that I made for our wood floor areas! If you missed my options, you can see them HERE!
I picked Woodland Reclaim/Old Original from the new Architectural Remnants line by Armstrong Flooring! It is sooooo gorgeous and guess what?? It’s LAMINATE! Can you believe it?! The average cost, nationally, for this florin is $3.50-$4.50 per sq. ft.!!!!
Everyone that has seen and felt it, since we installed it, cannot believe it when we tell them! I had several emails and questions on my first post about how this flooring feels/sounds. The main question being – “Does the floor have a squeaky sound like the laminate that I am used to”? I can say that after a week of walking all over it, it does NOT have a squeaky plastic sound at all. In fact, it’s very soft to the touch (much like a freshly sanded board) and it is very dense so it feels very substantial under your feet and it absorbs sound great! I am shocked that we don’t have an echo in the house after installing it.
We did choose to install the flooring ourselves, to save money, and the installation process was very easy! I’m going to share our DIY instructions and a final reveal of all of the rooms, with the flooring, very soon!
Here’s another sneak peak 😉 I just can’t get enough! You have to check out all of the colors in this new line because they are absolutely amazing! I had a hard time choosing just one but this one really stood out because it reminded me of the way we sand down our furniture pieces to get a reclaimed look – match made in heaven 😉
As I mentioned in my first post, about the flooring, we wanted wood flooring throughout the downstairs of our home but, with two boys and a toddler, it’s just not an option. I opted for laminate and my jaw dropped when I found this! I have the best of both worlds in flooring 😉 Reclaimed wood look and the easy maintenance of laminate!
Be on the lookout for my DIY installation and final reveals very soon! I can’t wait 🙂
What do you think?
I partnered with Armstrong Flooring for this project. I was given my choice of flooring to review. All opinions expressed are my own.
