The Sexy to My Dining Room: Our New Wood Floors

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.
And the beautiful "After" is still so hard to believe!
The floors are wide planked, hand scraped hickory with varying board lengths.
They even make my faded leather sofa look good!
After several weeks of living with wood floors, I'm still pinching myself!

    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.
