The plastic may still be in place but we are coming along, my friends! We are nearing the end of the construction and on our way to cleaning up and putting everything back in place. I can’t say ENOUGH GOOD THINGS about our new Mannington Floors! They are what dreams are made of! I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to parter with Mannington Floors on this project. They have been so amazing to work with on every aspect!
I’ve had some questions of why we chose wood laminate over wood tile look or wood floors. You would never know by looking at this flooring that it is not real wood and I’ve already had so many ask how we are going to keep from scratching our real hardwood floors. That is the biggest reason that we choose wood laminate. We have three kids and a dog, and I knew there would be a lot of traffic and play on these floors. Scratch resistant is just what we needed. I also love the real look and wood feel that wood laminate gives over wood look tile. I’m so in love with the rich texture and character! It is made in the USA, environmentally friendly, scratch resistant, and indentation resistant! I’ve already tested this out by dropping things while trying to move things from place to place with all of the construction, and it’s true…no dents. The quality can’t be beat! AND, it is spill shield protected which means it will not be damaged by ordinary spills and pet messes that are removed within 72 hours. And, Chester decided to test that out for all of us too. They cleaned and wiped up like a dream. Restoration Collection® is FloorScore® certified and meets stringent indoor air quality standards, which is very important to us. The 25 year warranty has me feeling pretty great about the durability of these floors too! The color of my flooring is Fairhaven Brushed Natural and it is the Restoration Wide Plank Collection. The wide plank is one of my favorite things about this flooring too! I love the character that it adds as well. And, thank you for helping me choose a color, here. There are so many great colors and options that they offer and you can see all of the different colors in this post.
The pallet wall in our tv area goes so well with the new flooring. I can’t wait to get our house put back together! You can see details of our diy pallet wall project, here.
Although our kitchen has a long way to go before we can call it clean, these floors make it feel so much more clean and fresh. The white cabinets pop against the character of these gorgeous floors!
Our pantry may need organized but who cares, right?! When I can sit and stare at these beautiful floors, all my pantry worries just swim away. I love my kitchen so much more now, after our new floors were installed.
Chester is tired too. He’s not too happy about all of the changes and the renovations going on but I’m sure he will adjust and love his new floors too.
Just for a little before and after fun…BEFORE
I can’t wait to show you the progression after we get everything cleaned up and put back into place. And, thank you so much for all of your sweet words about our new flooring! I just love you guys! It’s been a long time waiting for the floors of my dreams and I can honestly say that I would choose Mannington Floors a million times over!
I would love to hear what you think of our new flooring and if you have any great suggestions for cleaning wood laminate floors! Thank you so much for stopping by, my friends. I hope you have a wonderful day!
