Good luck! One of the biggest drawbacks to our home is that it has baby blue carpet in almost every room. It makes it so hard to decorate! We just laid new tile floor that I love, which replaced the off-white and lavender! Gotta love these older homes! My entire house is dark hardwood, similar to yours, except my kitchen which is a lighter wood.
I kind of wish we would have done all the floors the same color. The floors in the kitchen are new while the rest are original to the house. The difference in colors kind of points out that they are new and seems to separate the kitchen from the rest of the house. Enteway…Where did your sponsors go?
Your computer must be running some ad blocking software, which has made our sponsors invisible! Hope that explains it! The house we purchased was just lovely when we walked in. The previous owners had redone the main living area with beautiful hardwoods and the kitchen with ceramic tile. It really makes you wonder what people were thinking! We are so jealous! We have 3 different carpets and 3 different linoleums on our first floor alone! The old years old! All in under sq feet! LOVE the flooring in your old?
My rental is laminate-chic bleh but someday it will be gorgeous dark bamboo floors with cool grey slate in the kitchen and bathrooms. We have tile in the entryway and two bathrooms, a nubby sisal carpet on the stairs and in the office, linoleum in the kitchen blehand gorgeous parquet in the rest of the house.
Wow 8 floors! We thought we were bad with 5. We ended up installing a cream marble throughout the entire house except one bathroom. I love the uniformity of it. You can ways change area rugs.
We have at least 10 year old carpet throughout most our living space and laminate in our family room and porcelain tile in our master bath and kitchen and vinyl flooring in our hall bath. I agree that your wood floors are beautiful! My husband and I are very tired of the floors in our home. I have a home very similar to yours. I have original hardwoods in the entire house where the bedrooms and hallway are — except for the bathrooms.
And then — the kitchen has craptastic tile and the living room — OMG — the living room has crappily installed berber carpet.
We rent for now, but whenever we decide to buy — we will be SO making sure our home has all hardwoods! Time for some cohesion!! Very strange. I am insanely jealous of your floors. Oddly enough, only our kitchen has wood floors. The kitchen floor is done in golden oak blech!
Any tips for figuring out if we can sand and stain it?? Nearly all hardwood floors can be refinished so just follow the link in our post about refinishing to learn more about how that process went for us. Hope it helps!
We just bought our first house this summer, and it is an older home One of the things that sold me was that, even though buried under carpets in three rooms, I Will Always Feel The Same - Fairfield Parlour - From Home To Home (Vinyl was continuous, beautiful original hardwoods in EVERY room of the main floor, aside from kitchen and bath.
There was hardwood, and B. It was in good condition. Of course, that was after we were in love with the house, and about to write the contract… We knew we would get it anyway… but I just had to know. Your timing is funny…. While we were downstairs she was oooing and ahhhing over our beautiful original douglas fir floors.
The consistency makes everything flow so beautifully. The previous residents had dogs. Maybe using area rugs? My house came with all hardwood mostly which I love that needs work. I never realized how much of an impact floors have, but it is so true! I love the colour of your hardwood.
It has such a beautiful tone! You guys are super good in doing all the research. Just want to know what car seat you guys purchased?. Please advise.
Thanks Sara. The most amazing flooring u gave ever lived with was in a house we rented for a while when I was in high school. The living room ad hallway had pretty normal beige carpet, but my bedroom had lime green shag, the spare room had harvest gold shag, and the kitchen had avacado and turquoise linoleum. Yes, you read that correctly. And turquoise. The seventies-tastic flooring would have been interesting by itself, but combined with the half-house makeover of updated carpet it was intensely bizarre.
Ah, the joys of renting! I would love to have hardwood floors…. My next place will have hardwood for sure! Sorry for typos in last post. We have six different flooring materials in our little ranch. Our goal is to rip up all the floors and stain the concrete underneath until we can afford to put hardwood throughout yeah, that might be a long ways out!
I wish we lived where Album) are a normal. But we have been thinking long and hard about our flooring options. We have a 3 bedroom 2 bath house. Along with every other room in the house needing something! Lol happy moving!! I love your dark floors. You are so right about the cohesiveness, especially in a small space. We once looked at a big house and the upstairs bedrooms each had a different colour of bright shag lemon yellow, lime green, psycho purple, etc carpeting.
Our house has hardwood throughout the downstairs with white! What a horrible idea, white shows everything. I also want to paint our dingy wood cabinets white.
Any suggestions on how to convince him??! Maybe this post will help? The diningroom had a carpet, Album). We just replaced that with the wood floor that will go through our whole house. The livingroom has a nasty carpet, and from there you can see the hallway on one side that goes to the kitchen with fake wood tiles ewa small hall on the other side that goes strait into LP room and that room and the small hall each have different carpet, neither of them the same as the livingroom.
All the rooms will have the same wood floor when I am done except for my boys room which has new carpet so we will keep that until they destroy it lol and possibly the bathroom, it might get stone tile. My hubby works in a bluestone quarry and I think he wants a part of that in our home so we might do that in the bathroom.
Sorry about that! This was a helpful post for me and made me appreciate our house a bit more — I think I was taking my cohesive flooring for granted! The people we bought from had just installed birch floors throughout the entire house. But, it actually is wearing nicely now I was a bit more anal about the floors when we first moved in since they were brand new….
And the beautiful color variations — just enough to be interesting without looking odd — more than make up for it! But yes, I vacuum once a week, whereas the hardwood especially in the kitchen needs it two or three times. The professionals at Murray Floor and Window Coverings can help you determine which color is best for your individual space, but first, consider these helpful tips for choosing floor coloring in your home.
Room Size The size of the room where you plan to place your vinyl flooring matters, especially when choosing the appropriate color. This will make the room feel smaller and more intimate. Colors such as LP, or vinyl flooring that has the appearance of a dark wood, can make for perfect choices when achieving this effect.
By using light blue, beige, or cream colors you can easily create a bigger, more welcoming space. Be sure to match any borders or molding in the room as well. Whether it is dark or light, choosing the opposite for your flooring can create a nice contrast for an elegant appearance. You may also consider if the room your flooring receives a lot of natural sunlight or artificial light. Vinyl can take on a different appearance or have a different color in natural sunlight, while artificial may not bring out the brighter, more prominent features within the flooring.
A light brown may seem red in the sunlight, so be sure to consider both lighting options. Overall Appearance If your room already has wallpaper, paint, Album), or furnishings that stand out, be sure that the new flooring you select is the right color to match for a unified appearance. If your furnishings or walls are solid colors, mix it up by choosing a vinyl flooring with a variety of color, but one that still matches.
This will give the room a flair of its own. If you desire a more open feel for your room, like your kitchen, a patterned designed vinyl floor with light colors is perfect.
