Y’all. We did it. We are finally getting rid of our carpet once and for all!! Happy dance!!!!!
Those who have been reading our blog since its infancy will remember that swapping out our nasty old carpet and cracked white tile for beautiful, high quality laminate wood flooring was one of the first projects we ever did at the house. And by we, I mean a team of professionals we hired. We need to make a few more sacrifices to the DIY gods before we have the balls to tackle something that big. Which is why this time around, we hired the same guys again to install the same flooring in our bedrooms!
We made this decision just in time too- when we called to set things up, we found out our flooring is actually being discontinued!
But before we could get anything installed, we had to remove alllll the furniture from our bedrooms. And our bedroom closets (anything on the floor at least). So our house has been looking a little ragged.
Meanwhile, we realized how sad our bedrooms look with everything removed.
But honestly, it’s been fun camping in the living room so we aren’t complaining :)
And it’s been even more fun to see the floors making their way little by little throughout our bedrooms!
We also had some water damage by our back door after the Houston floods this year. It caused our floors to swell so much that we could barely open the door. So we got a few boards back there replaced too.
The whole project just took two days- which is massively impressive to me after seeing all the work that goes into it. We are so glad we bit the bullet and got the floors we wanted!
Having the same flooring flow from the hallway into each bedroom makes everything feel more seamless and open. Which is especially important when you have a relatively tiny hallway and relatively tiny second bedrooms. Speaking of which, here’s how they looked once the floors were done!
We are so excited to move our stuff back in and maybe even rearrange the layout of furniture in the rooms. Evans office especially is going to (hopefully) look a little different once we add everything back in.
