    I'm done painting for now. I bought everything for the floor and should get started tomorrow while I'm at work. I'm hoping to get it all done tomorrow, but I would be ok if I went another day. I am waiting until it gets nice out to do the trim. So, as soon as it's done, I'm moving in!!!! I'm doing the happy dance.

    this is my floor. I just got the snap together stuff. I hope it's good. I only know one person that has it and they said they liked it.

    Looks great! The laminate hardwood floor will be great and easy to clean up! No more losing pins, needles in carpet. I enjoy seeing your pictures. Thanks for sharing! :lol: :lol:

    I have this floor in my sewing room and throughout my basement. I love it. The older stuff we had installed did seperate in the cold weather but the new stuff is better.

    We have this in our family room, dining room, and hobby room. Love it!!!
    We plan to put in our 3 bedrooms this spring.
    We have talked to different companies and they have told us they recommend this above the real hardwood for several reasons.
    1. cost
    2. upkeep
    3. water gets spilled or leaked on real stuff BIG problem.
    4. Easier and faster to install
    5. Pets toe nails do not scratch it like hardwood!!!!
    ( Big reason we have 4 fur babies)
    We had hardwood in our last house and have decided we like this much better.
    Good luck hope all goes well for you! :thumbup:

    Nice room indeed!!

    I have Pergo brand flooring like what your putting down and it matched the rest of the hardwood floors in the house and it has been in the kitchen for the last 6 years and I have not had the first problem with it. The only thing is you have to be careful with what you use to clean it and they have a special glosscoat (like mop and glo) that you put on it to give it a fresh waxed hardwood floor look.

    You will love it!!

    Good to know. I didn't know you had to use anything special to clean it. :)

    Our whole house is laminate, and we love it. We have 3 dogs and it gets a lot of abuse and looks great.

    That is going to be a wonderful sewing room. Love the flooring. It's the same thing my dad used and it's holding up great.

    I'm excitied for you! I have laminate in all but bedrooms and I really like it. I've found vinegar and water to be the best cleaner for them.
