Isn’t it pretty? I love it. We would have preferred to lay true wood flooring, but the kind we wanted was way over our budget (of course). So, it came down to choosing between cheap hardwoods, laminate or Allure vinyl flooring. I know, I know, vinyl sounds absolutely horrid right? But have you seen the Trafficmaster Allure selection at Home Depot? So beautiful!
I chose the color, “Limed Oak”. I like the variation of warm tones throughout it, and I especially love how it looks pickled in spots. The fact that it doesn’t go clickity-clack when you walk on it is also a plus (like laminate would). With it being vinyl, clean up is a breeze.
Not only is the floor down, but I finally finished one wall in our foyer. It’s so wonderful being able to look at this one spot in our house and see it complete. Look to the left or the right or above… and not so much. All in time.
We decided to keep the plank walls and caulk in between them. Thanks for your votes on that one! It helped tremendously. The planks are painted “Clean White” (Valspar) flat, and semi-gloss for trim and baseboards. The doors are painted “Cottage White” (Behr).
I found the drawer pulls at Anthropologie, but they work just as well for door pulls set vertically.
I’m enjoying my new finished spots, however small they might be!
