Decisions Decisions

It's down to decision time for flooring in our man cave renovation.  Here's some things we considered before coming to our decision:
  1. We have no basement and our house has radiant heat running though the concrete slab. Real wood is out.
  2. We have pets-Jozie goes out to do her business through the back door. Translation: There are bound to be wet, muddy paw prints tracked across the floor and we need something that cleans easily.
  3. We want this to be a family-friendly room.  More than likely once we have bambinos of our own, this room will be the place to hang out, keep toys, and enjoy each other's company.  We don't want to have to worry about juice and barf stains.  Flooring that stains (e.g. carpet) is out.

Right now, we're really feeling vinyl.  The price is right and it met all of our qualifications.  Because it's SNAP together, the flooring store told us it was idiot-proof (score!)  Here are the colors that we considered.

I tend to gravitate towards dark wood, but I also didn't want to rule out light after seeing how bright it made our cave-like family room feel. 

After thinking long and hard, we've decided to go darkish.  My favorite is the one to the far left in the picture above.  The middle was so dark that you can't see any details.

It's really starting to come together!


  1. Can't wait to see it all finished and hear about how you like your flooring!

  2. Thanks Anna Banana! I can't wait to see YOUR living room change-ups!
