Renovation Update: Flooring

The last time I mentioned flooring, I was planning on going with this lovely acacia floors:

I decided that I didn’t want the floors to steal the show. With that much pattern and movement, I was concerned that it would overwhelm the space.  Essentially, I chickened-out and decided to go with a more uniform dark white oak floor.

 As I mentioned before, our good friends helped us get started with the install.  

My day laborers hard at work.

Unfortunately, because I chose the 2 1/4″ width, this install is taking FOREVER.  We’ve finished the living room, dining room, and kitchen but still have the rest of the house to do.  Wish us luck since we’re really only working on the weekend now.

Here’s a before and after to give us motivation:

Before: Carpeted loveliness

After: Sable White Oak (in the dark)

Have a happy turkey day!
