Excuse the long delay. We went through a major polar vortex here that put all kinds of delays on house projects. Most specifically the boys’ bathroom but I’ll save that drama for another post. It’s juicy!
The laminate in the basement is not only ugly, but it was sliding around and coming off the ground. It just had to go. With the newly done bar and built ins, it didn’t really go with our style anyway. We went with a tile that looks like wood. We thought that it was most functional for a basement, and would hold our workout equipment well since we wanted to do tile in that area as well.
David did a great job ripping out the old laminate and I think that the kids loved watching it. The new tile is looking really good. I am not totally in love with our choice, I think the floor clashes a little bit with the carpet, but the blue paint is a little deceiving and I think that is what is throwing me off. Once we use a fresh color, it will all come together (hopefully!).
