First, bonus points in my uber cool book if you know what song my title is from. Because I'm way cool and therefore you must be cool to read this blog.
(Mental note: Do not be retarded, Kristie. It's not cool.)
ANYHOOOOO. It's Saturday evening and I'm at home. Per my usual. And I have a question for the Internet.
Last night I was at a friend's house and she and her husband have the most beautiful wood flooring throughout the entire house. And I'm jealous. I have been considering ripping all the carpet up and getting new flooring and now I'm definitely sold on the idea. Especially when a stemless wine glass got broke last night at her house and it was so easy to clean compared to if it had dropped and broken on carpet.
I have spent all day thinking about the options and the cost and the effort for different types of flooring. Here's where you come in. I tell you what I'm considering and you, so kindly, tell me what you think, what you have experience with, what you hate and any other ideas or suggestions.
Here are my three options I've chosen:
Laminate wood flooring. I figure it's cheaper than real wood, better for the environment (although I need to check into that) and I think it's more durable.
Bamboo. I looks so so pretty. But I hear it's more expensive and it's not as durable, especially with animals that have claws and like the chase each other.
And lastly. Concrete. I'm considering ripping up all the carpet and having someone come in to stain and seal the concrete floor. It would seem to me that it's durable, easy to clean, easy to repair if need be and maybe cheaper than the other options. The only downfall I can think of is that I'd have to move all the baseboards down to meet the concrete floor.
So, I wanna know what you think. Humor a girl on a lonely Saturday night. Or Sunday. Or Monday. Take your pick.
