Floor and Decor DIY Renovations
This past summer we moved to Florida. The house is a fixer upper and we have plenty of DIY renovations going on right now. We’ve completed a lot of things since moving in from floors to landscaping. We have looked at tons of different flooring options such as porcelain, ceramic, stone, tile, wood and laminate. It is no wonder Floor and Decor has the best selection in hardwood considering what their warehouse looks like…
One of the main things that needed to be done when we moved in here are the floors. They were a mess! We shopped around to find what would work best here and decided to go with all wood, laminate and ceramic tile flooring – no carpets. We live on a canal that goes straight out to the lake and a good portion of our yard is sand. If we had gone with carpeting we would have been vacuuming every five minutes…sweeping is so much easier.
Low price flooring was an important factor since we replaced all the flooring in one of the bedrooms, the kitchen, and the dining room. It really came out great for the most part, especially since it was our first time doing something like this. We think we did an okay job, what do you think?
Tip: If you are installing flooring it is always a good idea to buy just a tad extra that way if something gets ruined you don’t have to worry about matching up the flooring if it has been discontinued. We made that mistake the first time and when the living room hardwood floor accidentally got ruined in a small spot we couldn’t find flooring to match.
Floor & Decor carries more than just the flooring they carry everything you need to get the job done from glue adhesive to floor cleaners. They even have rubber cups that are totally impossible to find at any other store. I swear I have been to every place you could think of looking for them. Since we went with wood flooring our couch and other furniture seem to slide everywhere when you sit down. Unlike the felt you put under furniture to move it or cushion it the rubber cups prevent the furniture from sliding. We should have known to check with Floor & Decor to begin with…
