Daniel and I have wanted laminate floors for a long time, no matter where we were living. But of course new floors are not cheap. So we have been saving and this year was the year to get to do it. So out go the yucky carpets and in goes the gorgeous new floors. We did laminate in the dining room and living room and then recarpeted all the bedrooms and closets. We ordered during the Spring Sale and got a GREAT deal on everything... even the EXTRA thick padding for the carpet. It is like walking on clouds.
Just realized that I only took pictures of the laminate and not of the carpet, oops.
