New flooring
« on: May 27, 2018, 01:39 PM »
Two weeks ago I decided I'd had enough with the carpeting in my dining room, (12 yrs old) it was discolored, stained  and a very deep pile and generally made sitting at the table uncomfortable for me. 
Short trip to a nice flooring store (not a big box) in town provided a workable solution - laminate.

And while the pictures don't really do it justice the contrast in color between the cherry furniture and the "hickory" colored flooring look really nice.  But even with the laminate I picked which was on sale, it was an expensive option.  After the labor, matching color moldings, water proof under layment, etc., etc. it worked out to be $ 8.50/ft.  Dining room is 9x10......But worth it for me.

Wow, that's a really big difference. Looks nice, too. I would never have guessed by the photo that it's laminate.

Any particular reason you quoted yourself on this thread, or was than an error? :)
