Happy Monday! I am back with another update on the new house! First things first, our exterior paint colors were approved by the HOA! Hooray! So, it feels a little funny to call this blog series “The Pink House” when painting is underway and it will soon be white. So, I think I’m just going to go with “Our House Remodel”, cool? Or I’ll call it “Equestrian” since that is the street name. Okay good. Moving along… I have SO much to share including some crazy demo photos and details about all of the big changes we have decided to make to this house! But, first… I am going to talk about one of the most important decisions when remodeling a house… flooring!
We used gorgeous wood-look tile from Floor & Decor in our last house remodel, and we were thrilled with the results. We loved the wide variety of materials offered (at great prices!) at Floor & Decor and the customer service experience was outstanding! We are excited to work with Floor & Decor on choosing the main flooring for this house. One of the hardest things about remodeling an entire home is making decisions. It may come easy for some people, but it takes me a really long time to decide on final materials, especially on the big things. Sometimes I think I should just repeat what we did in the last house because I did love how everything turned out, but what fun is that? I want to change things up, try new things and really figure out what my favorites are. I love so many different styles so it’s hard to know what my “true” style is. During this process, I am planning on sharing details about many of the choices I am making, so maybe just maybe… if you are working on a remodel of your own home, my ideas and selections might help! Above are six of the many, many options that Floor & Decor offers that I have my eye on. You may notice that we are definitely going with a wood “look” but we aren’t sure if we will go with hardwood or wood plank tile for this house. I am not sure if I want to go light, medium or dark. (I know, it’s quite a wide range!) I’ve narrowed down to my favorite four, and I’ve created four inspiration boards, each featuring a possible choice for our main flooring. Now even though these style boards are a particular style (modern glam, traditional, farmhouse, boho chic), I believe that all of these options can really go with any style because they are all neutral wood options. By sharing actual images of similar flooring in use, I feel like it may generate some ideas and a good starting point for making a choice!
Style #1: Modern Glam
These images are of my last house that we recently sold! This where we used Castille Wenque Wood Plank Tile. I called the look of my formal living and dining rooms “modern glam” because I went with a more formal, fancy style in this space. The crystal chandeliers really made this space beautiful and I mixed some modern and traditional furniture in these areas. I love the striped chairs at the ends of my dining table.
Style #2: Traditional
I always love high contrast, so I am considering doing really dark wood floors in the new house, like this Graphite Birch Hand Scraped Hardwood. I’m sure we will be doing white board and batten again in this house (I’m obsessed!), so the contrast of the white with dark floors makes me super happy.
Style #3: Farmhouse
Chip and Jo have made farmhouse style famous and I’m quite a fan. While I don’t think my personal style is all farmhouse, I definitely love to incorporate farmhouse elements in the more casual areas of my home. This medium-tone wood plank tile, Shelburne Saddle looks gorgeous in white kitchens with rustic wood and metal accessories.
Style #4: Modern Boho Chic
I originally spotted this gorgeous wood flooring, Montepellier Oak Engineered Hardwood at a friend’s house and I fell in love. It’s medium in color and the texture of the wood is super soft. I found a few inspiration images including the hallway and bedroom below. As you may know, I love pale pink so I was excited to see how gorgeous this wood looks with the blush tones, but also looks equally amazing with the black/white/gray color palette.
I’d love to hear in the comments below!
Decisions, decisions! Stay tuned to see which floors I decide on!
