Living Room Reveal - New Floors Are Finished

What a difference the new floors make. I am thrilled with them. The color enhances my furniture and makes the room look so much bigger. So glad to have that really bad carpet gone.
The carpet was so worn and really needed to be replaced, so I decided it was time for wood floors. I am loving how they turned out.
The light carpet color gave the room a light and bright look, but the floors are so much nicer and so easy to clean.
I think the cowhide rug is the icing on the cake. What do you think?

    I had a similar situation in my living room. White carpeting that needed to be cleaned every six months. The room was bright but stark. I peeled a corner up and revealed beautiful maple hardwood floors in great condition. Why cover them up! Removed the carpeting and refinished the floors. And yes, the room looks larger. Love your floors! Thanks for sharing!

      Oh wow, how fabulous to find wood floors under the carpet. When we pulled up the carpet, all we found was cracks in the cocrete foundation haha
