Now that we are in our house, we knew there were some projects we wanted to get started on after we closed. We knew we wanted very minimal carpet in our home, just personal preference and due to past experiences with carpet. Carpet tends to hold a lot of allergens and the wear and tear of carpet can become more of a headache than anything. With all that, it really put us in the mindset of us really wanting to have wood floor as much as possible. Plus with our last home that we owned, the builder installed not the greatest carpet. It looked really worn after even the first 6 months. With that, we just never desired to have a lot of carpet. So today I wanted to share with you our wood floor installation in our boys room.
I am excited that I had the opportunity to work with The Home Depot and partner on installing the Lifeproof Bamboo Flooring in each of our boy’s rooms. We had a set budget when building our home, and how much we wanted to spend at the Design center. With that, we knew pulling their carpet out and replacing the floors to wood would be something we would do after we closed. Also, we are doing this at a fraction of the price from what the builder would have charged us.r
The installation of the flooring was super easy for the contractors to lay down and it was only a day project. Whether you are new to a home or been in a house for a while, these are the types of projects that are great to instantly give your house or rooms a refresh and not completely break the bank. We opted to go with Lifeproof Bamboo Flooring because they were very affordable and because of the 2-layers of Aluminum Oxide Finish that protects the flooring from everyday wear. We didn’t need the floors to match the entire flooring, we wanted the boys rooms to have a bit of contrast and most importantly be durable flooring.
The boys absolutely love it! We plan on putting an accent rug in each of the boy’s rooms and they can’t wait to pick those out.
