Back in January I began a series, Flooring Fridays, to assist in our quest to replace the problematic tile and carpeting in the entire right wing of Storybook Cottage.
The last week in January turned out to be a climatic post in the series.
If you only listen to one tip, of the hundreds I have written about over the course of eight years, let this be it:
Do not undertake a renovation if your life is experiencing any major transformations.
Why? Ask any girl who has undertaken a personal renovation the morning after a major haircut.
Do not do it!
I try to take my own good advice and so the brakes were applied while our family experienced a few changes.
You may have sensed a theme in the above pictures as to what option Mr. Decor and I have decided upon ~ tile.
Of course that decision in and of itself opens up several options.
Travertine, Slate, Porcelain, Ceramic… just to name a few.
I love them all when placed in the right setting.
We have opted for a porcelain tile in a lighter color palette.
But there are other factors we still need to decide upon.
The current trend is to use a grout in a shade lighter or darker than the tile itself .
A pattern, in regards to how the tile is laid, must be considered.
Then the big decision…
PROFESSIONAL or DIY
Who will do the actual work?
We’ll get there. I promise.
