If you follow me on Instagram you may remember that I was replacing my kitchen floors a while back. Well today is the big before and after reveal! I don’t know about you but I absolutely love it.
Some people thought we were crazy to tear out hardwood floor but I have never loved it and wasn’t excited about any of the re-staining options.
About a year ago we went into a local flooring store here in Utah and fell in love with some tile. We thought about it for a long time. And then finally decided to go for it. Instead of going to the original store though, we went to our favorite flooring store, Buy Direct (in Layton, Utah). We purchased our carpet from them a couple of years ago and also our tile for our backsplash (before and afters here).
They were able to hook us up with a good deal on the tile and provide contractors to install the tile as well. It’s awesome to have a one-stop shop like that.
The tile is called Treyburne Antique Chateau from Mohawk Flooring. It has the warm look of wood but the convenience of tile. I love tile because it doesn’t scratch. I also love that I don’t have to worry about water getting on it. And considering it was installed in my kitchen, two bathrooms and laundry room that’s pretty important.
I also love how much this particular color of the tile brightens up my home so much. My living space is on the east side of the house so after the morning is over it’s pretty dark in there. I so appreciate this light color to brighten things up.
The tile layers did a wonderful job. Like I said, there was quite a bit of space to cover. We did our kitchen, laundry, entry, 2 bathrooms and hallway. We halfway considered getting some friends and doing it ourselves but I am SO happy that we didn’t do that. Oh my, it was so much work! Just watching the workers made me tired.
We also opted to go for the varying widths of tile. One thick, two thin. And we chose a gray grout color that blends in really well.
I really love how everything just flows through our house now. I am so glad we got it done!
