Okay - sorry for being absent, like all summer! I am back. I just had to take some time off and enjoy life.
But, on to the floors. When we moved in, I HATED the floors. They were peel and stick tiles, that had been riped up, burned, and even replaced by slightly different color tiles (see the right side below)
This is where there are burn marks - must have had a grease fire!
And the floors are what you see when you walk in the front door - see image below - GROSS!
So we finally decided to do something about it. We shopped around forever - okay, literally we have been looking for new floors since we moved into the house over 3 years ago! Well, we settled on cork. I absolutely love the look of cork. But I also wanted to do something a little different, to put my touch on the flooring. So we went with stripes!
Above are the 2 colors that we went with. The lighter one is close to our hardwood floors and our cabinets and the darker one just looks really rich. Now here is the sight you see when you walk in the front door.
SO MUCH BETTER! And just because I love my new floors, here are a few more pics:
