Anyone want to chat about some wood floor options for the new house?! I hope so, because that’s basically all I can think about lately so I figured why not bring the conversation here! I’ve narrowed it down to a few choices, but I thought it would be fun to just get your input. It’s always good to hear what you guy think and something you all give me new ideas I hadn’t even thought of yet. Also, quick update for you–our closing on both houses has been pushed back about two weeks both for reasons out of our control. It’s kinda funny in a way because I feel like God is always trying to teach me patience and this is another example of that! So instead of stressing about it, I’m just going to enjoy these next few weeks of “calm” before all the chaos starts. It will happen when it happens and I’m a-ok with that! All righty, now lets’ chat about some wood floor options. Here are a few photos of the new house so you can see where the floor will be going:
So here’s how things are looking now at the new house. Obviously they still had lots of finish up when I took these photos, but you can get the idea. The main living space here will have carpet and a dark vinyl flooring. I’m not crazy about either, so we are going to take those up immediately. (And yes, we tried to keep them from installing the carpet and flooring, but they had to since the products were already ordered when we got under contract!) We’ll be doing wood floors throughout this whole area and the bedrooms too. My vision is to add loads of shiplap in here and I’d love a nice wood floor to add some warm and coziness!
I’ve always wanted a light oak floor–something without a ton of yellow or orange. There are a few options I’ve narrowed it down to right now. I’m uploading these photos with no editing whatsoever so you can really see the true color of the wood!
(All of these samples are from a great flooring place in Denver.)
My top pick from these three would probably be the lightest one, but I worry that it might be too light. I definitely don’t want a floor that shows every little bit of dirt. We’ll be living in the country so I’m sure things will be dirty all the time! I love the second one and I feel like it would add a lot of warmth to the space, but will it bee too orange? Lastly, the last option there has no orange or yellow at all, which is great, but I think it will be too dark. Although I do love the textured lines!
I also found these two great choices at Home Depot, of all places! I LOVE both of these options, especially the top one. It has a nice textured finish which would be great to hide scratches and little dings from the kids. The top one is French Oak Point Reyes and the bottom one is French Oak Light House. Both are solid hardwood.
Well there are a few of my top choices! I’m hoping to get the flooring ordered this week, so I need to make a decision pronto. Let the know what you think. I’d love to hear it!
