The rest of our Antique Hickory laminate flooring is going down today and I couldn’t be more excited! We’re laying it on top of our existing engineered hardwood and using a 5-in-1 underlayment in between to help with 1) cushioning, 2) moisture resistance, 3) mold/mildew resistance, 4) sound absorption and 5) to act as a temperature barrier in the winter. Here’s a link to it if you want more information: Trafficmaster 5-in-1 Premier Underlayment.
Here’s a sneak peek shot of how the new flooring looks going into the living room:
I still have my summer pillows and gallery grouping on the right side of the room, but it’s Fall on the fireplace, y’all- ha! 😀
You can see the old flooring in the lower left-hand corner of that photo. The whole place feels lighter and brighter and more cheerful with the new stuff. It’s waaaay more durable too. You can throw just about anything at it and it doesn’t scratch one bit. Super easy to get a streak-free clean with a Swiffer mop, and the color is perfect for hiding dust and dirt until I can get to it.
Which reminds me, this particular flooring is no longer in stock, but here are some similar tones that you might want to check out if you’re on the hunt:
I’m sure you can order samples of each if you want to see how they look in real life. I’ll be back soon with some more updated pics of ours!
