New Kitchen Floors!

 I have been meaning to write this post for a while but I kept forgetting to take an after shot to show. Well I finally gave up on the kitchen being clean enough to take the picture and went ahead and took the photo today.

Replacing the kitchen floor has been on our to do list for a loooonngg time. The old linoleum floor was stained, dated and showed dirt really easily. We debated floor type for the new kitchen floor for a long time. We needed something water proof, durable, and hopefully pretty. I originally wanted tile but our house is so uneven it would have been a nightmare to install. We ended up going with vinyl plank flooring and I have to say I am very please with the results! Vinyl flooring sure has come a long way in recent years!

Eric's parents came down to help us with the install (thanks Don and Jody!) and Eric and his dad had to do a good deal of replacing sub flooring that was water damaged. The vinyl flooring is floating and locks together so once the sub floor was fixed it was relatively easy to put in.

We love love love the new floor, it makes the whole kitchen look more polished and it is holding up really well so far. Next on the to do list for the kitchen is replacing the base boards and quarter round and repainting the upper cabinets/replacing their hardware. Eventually we want to replace the backsplash too but with so much going on in our lives right now who knows when we will get to it.
