I do believe we have discovered the perfect flooring for our hard-working, very active house.  It is durable, water-resistant, doesn’t take any special equipment, and it floats over the slab so it allows for movement.

We purchased Tranquility brand Rustic Reclaimed Oak click and lock vinyl planks from Lumber Liquidators and I am so happy that we did.  The cost for vinyl plank flooring was less than $2.00 a square foot.

This picture was taken in the sunshine so you could get an idea how realistic the pattern is.

We have purchased the quarter round shoe molding but it was a very busy weekend and it did not get installed.  Bummer.

I just couldn’t wait to show you the floor.  My buddy, The Social Planner, also clued me in to this amazing microfiber mop/ duster thing from O’Cedar.  It is a must have for this type flooring.

Make sure to get an extra cover.  They go right in the washing machine and come out spotless every time.

So, minus the shoe molding, here is my beautiful floor.

The coffee bar goes here.  It will look amazing with this flooring.

In this picture ( of my beautiful whitewashed fireplace) you can see the shoe molding we had out to see how it looks.

Full disclosure here- the awesome olive bucket is not mine.  I am babysitting it for a friend who is building a home.

The hallway is so pretty!

Do you notice I painted the coffee table?  It looked too dark against the floor.  I love it now.

The room is coming together.   I love the floor in this space.

Thank you for joining us on this journey to reimagine this ranch home.

Blessings,
