Getting a New Floor!

February 27, 2012

I’ve written several times about my floor in my kitchen.  And I’m going to write several more times!

We moved into this house a little over a year ago – it was a foreclosed home, but the bank had obviously done a little fixing up before putting it on the market.  But they did as much as they could for as little money as they could.

The kitchen floor was “re-done” with a roll of linoleum.  Cheap linoleum at that!

They also didn’t do a very good job of installing it – because it’s got lumps and bubbles in it all over.  It’s terribly difficult to clean the linoleum too.

I’ve been dreaming of a new floor since before we bought this house – but it just wasn’t in the budget or priorities – because the city wanted us to take care of a few other projects first (like the deck, and the garage door… which I will be updating about soon).

But now that we got our tax rebate back, We’ve decided to allocate a portion of that money to a new floor!!!

We ordered the wood laminate floor today –

I’m SO excited!


  1. Can’t wait to see it….we’re getting ours done right now, but we’re doing porcelain tile.

  2. That lump is horrible! I can’t believe they just left it like that! glad its getting fixed though!

    • It IS horrible! I didn’t show pictures in this post, but in previous posts I’ve shown how the floor doesn’t even line up to the wall, there’s random cuts in random places – and its ripped in a few places. It was brand new when they did it – they just did that bad of a job laying it. Haha! So excited for it to go away!
