The Sexy to My Dining Room: Our New Wood Floors

19K Views
We have wanted wood floors our entire homeowner life. On days where couldn't stand the idea of living another day with our matted down, wrinkled, stained carpet, we'd imagine our home with wood floors. After 13 years, our wood floor dreams came true, and we just can't believe the difference!

Here is the "Before" of our carpeted living room. We ended up replacing the carpet in the living room, and hallway and changing out the wood in the dining room so that it would all flow together.

This was a job that I wanted to be sure was done well. So, we hired installers who did an outstanding job.

The floors are wide planked, hand scraped hickory with varying board lengths.

    I did the same thing. Love it! No more dust mites. Good call on the wood floor.

    I have this same flooring in my kitchen and dining room. It does show dust and pet hair, but it's easy to clean up and it beats carpeting any day of the week.

      @Jean Quintana I absolutely agree... and I don't mind the dust and pet hair in between cleaning. To think that all of that was in the carpet!

    Wood Flooring help you complement the look of your home.
    This style of flooring offers great flexibility to the users and stands for years to come, unlike laminate and carpet flooring. Better just avoid this style on bathroom.
