So as I gather my thoughts and think of themes that I'd like to have in each one of the rooms in my home, I become perplexed when it comes to choosing flooring. For now I know that I'd like to change out the bathrooms and the kitchen. Right now they have an ugly linoleum tile-like cover that looks like this...
I'm happy to report that most of my house has carpeting in a cream color that is easy on the eye. I am including pictures that I have found of kitchens (mostly) with floors that are an option. I'd like to know what you think. My kitchen and bathroom cabinets are a cheap looking maple color right now but I'll be painting them all white really soon and adding hardware.
There is this option: A medium toned wood or laminate. I get scared of wood because of the whole water stain thing. That is something I might have to overcome though...
I added this picture even though it's hard to see the floor. It's a black wood floor. I chose this because of the white cabinets, stainless appliances, and black hardware. This is what I'm leaning towards...
Then there is this deeper wood.
A whimsy tile-like vinyl. This is cute.
A pale wood laminate.
Tile in terra cotta
This is actually ugly tile that was painted black with porch paint. This needed an honorable mention.
So while I lean towards the black stained wood, family members say it's a bad idea because of the whole stain thing. Does anyone have these floors and have some advice? It's much appreciated : )
