New Kitchen Floor

We were really getting tired of our "OSB flooring" in the kitchen. So we decided to finally get a new floor put in. We ended up going with a floating laminate floor. It's the first time I've worked with this type of product. It was way easy to put in...once the first row is laid out straight the rest of the pieces just snap together. Nothing gets attached to the floor or walls, you just have to leave a gap around the walls and vents for just "floats" on the subfloor. It doesn't look near as nice as hardwood or tile, but its easy, cheap, looks decent and installs quickly...all the things we were looking for right now.

First you lay our and tape a foam underlayment

The first couple rows took the longest...trimming and fitting them to our 110-year-old wavy walls.

Half way done. The middle rows went super fast!
