I knew that Grandma's house needed an update in a big way, so one of the larger transformations was the flooring.
She chose flooring in the shade Napa Oak by Everhome. They generously gifted the flooring for this transformation and it was so easy to install. Their SPC Vinyl flooring is perfect for having the look of real hardwood floors without the cost of upkeep and maintenance. It's also waterproof and durable which is perfect in her age. She was happily surprised to learn that her floors are maintenance free.
Installing the flooring was easy and only took a few days. With a little help from my husband and brother we carefully removed trim, ripped out all of her carpet and padding, then cleared the floor of any debris like staples, dust, etc.
After that was completed I took some measurements and began to lay the flooring. The flooring is very easy to install and can be trimmed with a box cutter and metal ruler. For trickier areas I used a handheld jigsaw but it wasn't necessary. I purchased a vinyl floor kit to help with installs against walls and around floor vents.
Head over to my instagram to see behind the scenes from the install.
As a side note, if you can clear a room entirely of furniture before starting it is very helpful. A lot of extra time was spent shuffling furniture from here to there, but it can be done.
