New floors are on the radar for many people now that autumn is here. Looking for inspiration? See how one of our favorite bloggers transformed several spaces in a Nebraska home by swapping dated, worn floors for something new and oh-so stylish from Mannington.
Life on Virginia Street blogger Sarah and her husband purchased a 17 year-old house to use as a rental, and a quick glance was all it took to assess the condition of the dining room, kitchen, master bath and entry area floors. Although the home had only one previous owner, time had taken its toll on the floors. The carpet was heavily soiled and stained, and the vinyl flooring wasn’t in great shape either. Everything needed to be replaced.
For the dining room and adjacent kitchen, they chose Mannington’s Adura® Max Dockside luxury vinyl plank flooring (color-Sand), a reclaimed wood look with authentic graining, knot holes and saw marks. “Adura® Max gave me the look of hardwood that I love but it’s water-proof, noise-proof and pretty much life-proof,” says Sarah. “Pretty much everything that’s perfect for a rental house.”
“I absolutely love the unique details on each and every piece of the planks,” she adds.
For the master bath and an entry area leading to the garage, she chose Mannington’s Hive LVS flooring (color-Pollen), a limestone look in a unique honeycomb pattern. “I’m completely obsessed with the luxury vinyl we used,” says Sarah. “It has the look of marble but is much more durable. I also love that it has a slight groove where the grout would be if this were tile, adding some great dimension to the floor.”
And just inside the front door, Sarah opted for the same Adura® Max Dockside flooring that’s elsewhere in the house. It delivers the beauty and warmth of wood (but without the worry), plus design continuity while also creating visual interest in the small landing area.
“I love how much brighter and fresher everything looks now,” adds Sarah. “We love how everything ultimately came together. Everyone that’s been inside says it feels like a brand new home. We couldn’t be happier with the end results!”
