I have to say, my husband has been impressing me again and again with his handyman skills. If I knew he was such a skilled worker, I would have convinced him to marry me sooner :-)

Once we decided on the flooring for the basement, we agreed we wanted to continue the same flooring upstairs on the first floor. The carpet had seen better days from everyday wear and tear and we like to entertain... which comes with it's fair share of spills. The bathroom and kitchen both had your average linoleum floors and the foyer/hallway's hardwood just wasn't our style.

After reading several online articles about placing laminate floors in the kitchen, we decided to continue the floors in that room as well. We have plans of adding a kitchen island to the room and moving our kitchen table to the conjoining family room which has a fireplace. (similar concept) We are hoping having the same flooring in both rooms will give it that open concept feel while also adding more counter and storage space. Something this house definitely needs!

We finally got the existing hardwood ripped up in our entry/halls which was glued and nailed so we are good to go for the weekend!


  1. Looks like you're in the final stages of your renovation! Nice to see you making decisions on which lamps and fans to use and not just picking out the first thing that you'd see. Continue on updating us with your renovation. We wanna see how it turns out!
