Hey there! So progress on our home build is going super fast still but it’s been the “not so exciting stuff”. You know, like the HVAC, electric rough and plumbing top out. But, I did share on our Instagram, last week, that our dad has been busy creating some fun storage spots around the house!
While this has been going on, I’ve been busy making decisions on our finish-out. Woohoo!!!
So, let’s talk FLOORING!
I’m 100% decided that everything downstairs (minus the master bedroom) will be hard flooring. This summer, I discovered a flooring that didn’t just work with my style, it IS our style!
It’s no secret that we love some reclaimed-looking wood for our furniture and projects. Well, the same look is now available in LAMINATE! Check it out!
Armstrong just came out with a new line of flooring called Architectural Remnants that is made to look like reclaimed lumber! And, guess what? It’s not only gorgeous, it’s LAMINATE, which is exactly the type of wood flooring I am looking for. I made up my mind that laminate was the route I wanted to go. With 2 teenage boys, a toddler and the possibility of a dog, it was the clear choice in my head. It’s so easy to clean, it’s durable and there really is no maintenance with it.
The picture above is Woodland Reclaim/Old Original. I love how each board looks like it has come from a different place. The distressing is gorgeous and the boards come in random widths, adding even more character!
Here we have Skip Planed/Skip Sand. I love the dark distressed marks down the boards!
This species is called Lustre Cut Exotics/Lustre Sawn. I love the rustic look with the dark gashes through the boards!
Here is the Saw Mark Oak/Sawmill Oak. I like the dark, worn look throughout each piece.
And finally, we have the Antique Structure/Historic Element. The distressed and worn white paint is so pretty and makes such a statement in a room!
My jaw literally dropped when I saw the samples in person. I can’t believe that it is laminate! Every single selection is GORGEOUS and the grains and textures give it the look of reclaimed natural hardwoods but they don’t come with the hefty price tag of hardwoods 😉 Win-win for me!
I can’t wait to show you all which one I picked! Which one would you pick and where would you install it?
