Light Flooring Love




A few months ago we bought an older home that is in need of a little TLC and I'm dying to get started on some renovations. 
The past few months were spent taking care of some boring stuff like plumbing and calling pest control to get rid of an ant infestation 
(seriously....YUCK...my biggest nightmare)
 but now I'm ready to move on to the pretty stuff. 


The floors are pretty awful in our new house.
Whoever lived here previously must of loved brown because everything in here from kitchen cabinets to wall paint to floor choices are shades of brown. 
Not my cup of tea.


Upstairs we have this brown shaggy carpet and one bedroom this orangey laminate.




In our main living area there is a mix of creamy tile, brown laminate and dirty grey Berber carpet. 





Mostly everyone I've consulted with about switching up our flooring says I should go with a darker hardwood or laminate but being the rebel that I am 
... haha ... 
I obviously want to go with the complete opposite.
Something like a whitewashed hardwood or light grey laminate and carry it all throughout the house.
Below are some pins I've saved recently that have inspired me.
I'd love to hear from anyone who has light flooring in their home.
Do you love it? Hate it? Any advice?
Tell me all about it in the comments below or on my Instagram.

  2. We built our house 2 years ago and put a grey laminate on the main living area/ kitchen-it was "sunflower" colored. You can google to see the color. We loved the grey color but next time we would go with the tile that looks like wood because laminate is kind of high maintenance (you can only use special cleaners and can't let water pool on it (even ice cubes melting) becuase it can warp it. Good luck on picking-greys are totally in right now:)
