The Wood Floors Are Done!

I can’t believe how much work has been done at the new house in just a week’s time!! Literally, in a matter of days this place feels like a totally different place. The wood floors were installed this week and they look SO.GOOD. They’re about 85% done at this point, so I wanted to share a few photos so you can see how things are coming along. This floor is exactly what I envisioned in this space from the first time I walked through the front door. I wanted a light, airy feel and that’s exactly what I got with this hardwood!! Here’s how it looked before:

And how it looks now: 

BEFORE:

NOW:

Such a huge change, right?! I can’t get over the difference. The whole place feels brighter and so much bigger. And if you followed along as I was searching for the perfect floor, you know I looked all over for WEEKS before finding this floor at Home Depot of all places. This is the French Oak Point Reyes solid hardwood floor.

We’re still a little ways off from moving in, but things are coming along quickly. Can’t wait to share more updates. I want to share the basement soon too–all the framing is done and it looks so good! More to come. xo

    Beautiful! The flooring is fantastic!!!! Question, are you going to have a storage area in your basement? We are in the process of finishing our basement and I’m debating leaving a “room” for storage.. just wondering how you store all the things!

    Sarah,
    Your new floors are gorgeous! I always wonder why builders don’t hire someone to do selections, so that what they put in is more representative of what people are looking for and someone buying the home is less likely to have to change so much? I can’t wait to see you style this home with your touches!

      I agree!! The builder wasn’t the best, so I don’t know if they care!

    Sarah, I thought I liked darker wood flooring but you were so right! The light flooring opens it up and makes it seem larger too! Looks so much better.

      yes, Ramona!! Seems much bigger now!

  25. You must be over the moon happy!
    Gorgeous choice…I’m anxious to the decor and area rugs you’ll use.
    Question: Would you know of a LVP that is comparable to Point Reyes shade?
    REALLY struggling with that, since everyone is going with the darker shades.

  27. Love the look of your floors!! I found a place by my house that can come deep clean the floors and I loved it, they also added a protective coat that isn’t toxic for my animals. https://www.precisionchemdry.com/tips-for-wood-floors/
