Home Improvements ~ Surprise Flooring

Guess what. Our home improvement projects aren't done yet. We have another unexpected project ahead of us.

Two days before our carpet installation, my husband discovered that water was leaking from our refrigerator. Yup. And, the leak ruined our kitchen floor. We have laminate in the kitchen and dining room. The seams buckled and as we stepped on the floor we could feel and hear the water underneath.

Thankfully, our homeowners insurance is paying for most, if not all, of the cost to replace our floor. We are not going with laminate again. And we don't want tile. So, we are going with a newer type of floor. It's waterproof, which is awesome! It's a luxury vinyl plank floor. It isn't glued down. It's floated. We chose to go with COREtech Plus.

At first, we thought we needed a new refrigerator in addition to a new floor. But, it turned out that it was a leak in a water hose. A quick and simple fix. Whew!

Then came the time to choose new flooring again. Should we go with a floor that looks like wood, slate, stone, travertine, or marble? We chose the Noce Travertine. Here's the link to it on the COREtech website - Noce Travertine. In the photo below, it's the sample that's second from the right on the top row.

We received bids from two flooring companies. Now we just need to decide which bid to go with and schedule the installation.

After this is done, our house will have all new flooring except for the bathrooms. And the bathrooms don't need new flooring because they had beautiful tile installed several years ago.

Thanks for stopping by!
