When we walked through the house before we purchased it, we noticed right at the front door, there was 5 different types or colors of flooring. The living room had a light colored carpet and the stairs to the basement had green. The entrance, hall and bathroom had slate tile and the kitchen a white and black marble. Finally, the majority of the area had light oak wood floors.

In previous homes, we have had hardwood installed throughout. This home, we decided would look great with dark wood floors. The plan is to once again, weave in new wood, have them stained and include the steps going upstairs. The stairs to the basement will be a grey carpet from Home Depot.

We once again called Kip’s Hardwood to get the floors updated. The tile and carpet were the first things to go. With the tile out, the sub floor needed to be added to add height to meet the existing wood floors.

Then the weaving of new planks into the old began.

Once all the wood was installed, the sanding starts and picking of the stain!

We chose the stain on the right, Rosewood. It coordinated with the stain on the 2nd floor, without matching and was dark enough without being too dark.

So happy to have it all finished!
