The house is coming along quite quickly, but we have a dilemma on our hands. Namely the kitchen, at the moment we have the old sink unit and the temporary cupboards that John made, but it is time to start thinking about what we want it to look like.
We had thought about having the same kitchen as before with handmade wooden cupboards, but this house can lend itself to a more contemporary kitchen.
Our biggest stumbling block is the floor, at present we have a tiled floor that flows from the kitchen into the living room, this is not attractive and reminds me of a public toilet!
We need to find something that looks good, but is also durable.
We consider real wood, but will need to stain it to get the colour that we want, I really like tiles, but we would like to have something that is warm underfoot.
This gives us three options, vinyl, laminate or engineered hardwood. We begin our search for the perfect flooring, as there is so much available it is hard to know where to begin, the internet is always a good start, but how will we know what it is like from a photo on the laptop?
A big tip, is to find an online store that will send free samples, we found one that has a great selection of flooring with up to 6 free samples called GoHaus.com
By looking at a site like this you can gain good ideas for what you want to do, we want a covering that will look good in both the kitchen and living room. This site not only sends samples but has photos that will show what it will look like when fitted, these photos come from satisfied customers (which is always a good sign)
Here is an example of what the flooring can look like, and it flows from kitchen to living room, this means we can see exactly what the end result will be like,
