The kitchen is almost done, but I'm not ready to show the entire thing yet because we are still missing a a fridge and pendant lights, but we're almost there!
kitchen // the floors
A few weeks ago I talked about all the things I need to change in my kitchen, and Ten Coffee Day commented about extending the wood flooring into the kitchen. Well, I went looking for the flooring we used in the rest of the house, but I couldn't find it! I bought it at Costco 3 years ago and I guess they no longer have it, and I didn't have enough left over to finish off the kitchen. The upside to this is that since flooring is a laminate, it doesn't handle water that well, so I wasn't entirely sure I wanted to extend the laminate into the kitchen anyway. But, I loved the idea of having a cohesive look throughout the living room, dining room, and kitchen, so I decided to go with tile flooring that looks like wood! I'd heard of wood look tile before, but I wasn't convinced it looked realistic. Well....it looks REALLY good. I think it looks more realistic than the laminate flooring we have now. We decided on Montagna Saddle, because it most closely matched our current floors.
