Mini home reno

A couple months ago we started looking into renovating our basement. After alot of back and forth with a local company, we decided it just wasn't quite the time to undertake such a large change. SO...instead we took the plunge and replaced all our main floor hardwood to laminate.

Our enigneered hardwood was starting to show alot of wear and tear from our toddler and 70lb dog. Not a huge deal (life is life) but my husband and I love our home and are very proud of it, and at the end of the day it just looked...unkempt and rough. 

We've had a while to live with it and adjust, and I can honestly say...no regrets!

It wears so well, looks just as "real" as our hardwood and is so easy to clean. We have tested the durability with Vince's massive push car, and Marty's race to the doorbell. No scratches!


We had narrowed it down from our top three, to this 'Walnut' colour. I originally had wanted to go with something a little more rustic and gray toned, but our warm toned brown furniture made the floor show more green than a true gray.

I absolutely love this colour! It is slightly lighter than our engineered hardwood that came out, is still wide plank and slightly rustic.




We hired a local small business to rip out the floors, replace with new and also paint and install all new (taller) baseboards. They were amazing to work with and very accomodating to this detailed orientated client!


For reference, here are the floors before. So still very similar, just fresher and lighter :)
