We spent Saturday afternoon picking out the laminate flooring for our living room /dining room and bedrooms. This is what we settled on (Muskoka Sand, alas, was sold out.) This is a slightly darker tone, but not so dark as to show dust and dirt too hideously. Initially, we had planned to go with real hardwood, but turns out that isn’t even allowed because we need to put a soundproofing and cushioning underpad and that works best with laminate.
Dave insists we can do this ourselves, so, we shall see in January I guess…..
