5 days until NEW FLOORS!!

For Christmas Jake put a catalog from Lumber Liquidators in my stocking and told me we were getting new flooring in the kitchen, hallway, and entry (something we both have wanted since we bought the house over a year ago.) We finally chose our installer yesterday after 20 estimates. He's going to come over Wednesday and start demo'ing our tile and then hopefully by next weekend we will have beautiful bamboo flooring. Being the environmentalist that Jake is, he has always wanted bamboo and I also like the idea of using it for the same reasons he does (but also because it's very pretty.) We are getting bamboo that is more expensive than the norm because of it's hardness but to me it will be worth it. With 3 kids and a dog I didn't want the soft stuff that scratches easily. Anyway, can't wait to show you all the finished product next week. To tide you over I'm posting pics of the finished product from people who actually used the flooring we are getting. We're excited!!

oooooh, I like it! I love the color and I think it will look awesome in your house. Chad told me last night that we have ahrdwood floors underneath our carpet. I'm sure tehy're in bad shape, though, but it would be nice to check them out...

You're smart. You don't want the soft stuff, it really does scratch. I can't wait to see it finished!

Wow, I love the idea of bamboo flooring. They look gorgeous. I'm curious what in his upbringing has inspired Jake to be an environmentalist... It is awesome! and makes me very very happy :)

I love them!! We were thinking about bamboo for our house but it was a little spendy. They are gorgeous though. Maybe we will put them in the studio in a few years.

I can't wait to see how they look in your house!
