Our Renovation - Grey Laminate Flooring

Our laminate floors have been installed throughout our home!
Now this is serious progress my friends.
Our little cottage renovation is finally starting to feel like a real home.
We are thrilled with our selection to say the least!
Yesterday, I showed you how we narrowed our flooring choices.
It was both Travis & my favorite.
I think it was really just what we were looking for.
The greige tone with a slight comfort texture to the wood offers a casual and comfortable feel.
It is also a bit more modern, while still having an elegant sophistication of a beach cottage.
It also reminds me a bit of a barnwood with the wood grain showing through.
I was originally a bit worried about choosing a grey floor, for fear that it was too trendy.
I have to tell you, I'm so glad I went with my gut on this one.
The floor actually has a grey and brown look that we love.
I would definitely say my plan for the design aesthetic is kind of
casual elegant beach house meets modern farmhouse.
I think this flooring captures that feel.

Travis did the flooring installation himself.
I would say overall it took about 4-5 days to install.
Keep in mind, he is not normally a flooring guy, and he did not put in full days on it.
Lucy has even given her seal of approval:)
Hope you all are having a great weekend!


  1. Beautiful Carrie...I just love it!

  2. Love it. . . the one I picked too!

  3. Looks great! We're waiting for delivery of our gray laminate floors - hope we like them as much as you like yours...

  4. It really is gorgeous, and does have the modern/beachy feel. Laminates have certainly come a long way since the kind we installed in a previous home in 1995!

  5. We are just about to lay floors too and have been considering grey - I think it looks beautiful in your home and can't wait to see it with your furnishings!

  6. Laminate flooring is currently one of the most popular types of flooring and can be used as one of the best substitutes to the beauty, warmth and elegance of hardwood flooring.

  7. Glad to see the work progress, I'm curious, what kind of hardwood you used in this instance?


I love your comments! I appreciate each and every cottage visitor and hope you willll come back again soon! Carrie
