Since things have been fairly hectic over the past few weeks, I have failed to write a post about the new floors we installed in the kitchen. Previously we had these awful tiles that were so poorly installed that crumbs and other assorted kitchen mess would get into the tile’s grout area and could only be taken out by a vacuum. That, and the floor was just ugly!
The material we decided to go for was a luxury wood vinyl. Waterproof and durable, it is the kind of flooring that looks like wood, but isn’t. A couple of weekends ago, my parents were in town, so my Dad helped P tear up the tile floor while my Mom, Max and I went shopping for toys (Max had just broken his leg).
The floor was pretty gross underneath, so the subfloor was taken out. Last weekend, we hired two helpers – one for floor installation help and another to help with Max. It took all day Saturday, but the floor was completed fairly quickly. The subfloor took longer than the tile did!
Max likes his new floor! He also really liked “helping”
So, what do you think of the new floor?
What type of kitchen floor do you have?
