When Chad and Nicole bought their house, they got a small allowance for new floor covering. I’m not sure about the amount but it definitely wasn’t enough money for the amount of floor covering that needed to be replaced. They’ve lived there for about 1-1/2 years now. The carpet was old but it wasn’t horrible . . until their BIG dog had a few accidents, then . . the living room carpet had to go. They’ve been debating about what to do. They didn’t want more carpet. They didn’t want to spend the money for real hardwood with the dog, they were thinking about tile but what they wanted was more $$ than they wanted to spend.
Last week, Chad was at a friend’s house, saw their new laminate flooring that they put in themselves and he immediately went out and bought something similar.
They’ve spent the last couple of nights getting it installed in the living room. I was there yesterday and they still have to put some kind of pads on the bottom of their furniture and then move it back in and one room will be done. They still have a hallway, foyer, dining room and office type room to be done. I think they are going to put tile in the bathrooms and kitchen but that will come later.
It looks so good and I know they are really happy to be rid of the old carpet in that room.
