Renovation: New Floor Ohoy!

IMG_3365

With the floor gutted to the concrete and (most of the) painting done, it was time to start laying new floor! Originally I thought I’d replace the old and worn parquet with a nicer parquet, but it turns out laminate performs better than parquet with underfloor heating (being thinner), and that was a big thing on the building rules. Laminate is also considerably cheaper. I wanted a certain look, and after narrowing it down to a few choices on both types, the laminate options cost about half of the cost for comparable parquet. That adds up fast, when you factor in the whole floor surface!

Here we go with the installation! Quick tip: don’t order your appliances before the floor is finished, if you have nowhere else to store them… I did, and we ended up playing big-time Tetris with everything!🙂
