Ever since we moved to this house almost 7 years ago we dreamed of a new floor solution for the downstairs that is mainly used by the boys and their friends, the TV and Daniel's bedroom, our 19 year old who is away in college.
The existing big tile floor had an awful color and always looked gritty...yeach...it was also freezing to the touch in the winter and felt wet from condensation in the summer, is short very unpleasant.
The new floor is called Golden Aspen Laminate Flooring, the color is warm and lovely and feels nice to the touch, the color also mimics the feel and color of the hardwood floors in the rest of the house .
It was easy to install (the boards just click together) and the price was very affordable, but this space was not a weekend project...more of a week's project and Mikey our 17 year old helped a lot, so definitely a good project to work on with a willing teen:)
We love the results, the space feels cozy I love going downstairs to watch TV, it's super easy to clean and the boys LOVE IT!
BEFORE gritty looking tile floors :
Here you can see that they started in Daniel's room in the back
AFTER: The NEW floor and a new rug!
