We had looked at flooring at Rona (our Canadian Home Depot), gotten the quote and found that the contractor was able to start right away. He thought it would take 4 days. So far it's been 5 1/2 days and there are still a few things left to do. I have to say he's done a beautiful job.
We decided to go with vinyl. It has changed so much over the years. This is sheet vinyl and he managed to use one piece to do the kitchen and dining room so there are no cuts. It looks like wood and feels like wood with the texture of the flooring. I love it!
While he was doing the bathroom we decided to get a new toilet since the old one had been leaking and despite a couple of supposed fixes, it didn't stop leaking. Now we have a brand new toilet but elected to keep our wooden toilet seat.
Here are some photos:
|This is the old dining room floor prior to our moving in - ugly cheap laminate, impossible to clean without showing marks|
|This was under the laminate|
|New floors-one piece through dining room and kitchen|
|Bullnose goes all around the railing and steps|
|Old steps were covered in the same laminate as the floor and they were cracking|
|New steps hand made by our contractor|
|Kitchen floor when we moved in (up until Tues)|
|Old linoleum under ugly blue tile|
|The bathroom had old white linoleum, not properly cut.|
Next- basement windows
After that - Kitchen counter, granite composite sink and taps
