Even though I love how big and bright the apartment looks with the white floor, I know it’s not going to last with our lifestyle. We want a pet eventually, I paint, Leo likes to drag his cars and toys all over the floors and I don’t want to worry about stripes and marks. I’ve bought some samples and it looks like we’re going with the shade that we wanted from the beginning.
We’re going for number 3. It’s not too white, and the structure is rough and more rustic.(Marks and wear is going to add to the charm, not become an annoyance.) I like the warmer shades, but I’ve never had light floors before and want the apartment to still look bright and clean.
These two pictures are exactly the same as sample number three, but as you can see the product photos come off completely different than the real deal. My advice to anyone who is looking to get their floors replaced is to quit wasting time online and go directly to the shops. I promise you will save yourself a lot of time and confusion.
I am really looking forward to get the roof and walls repainted, so we can get started on this! The floor really sets the tone and mood of the room. Right now we are ripping off skirtings, throwing out old wardrobes and prepping the rooms for paint!
