My Christmas Gift?



Just realized that I'd promised pictures of the new floor, but hadn't delivered. Here are a few. The wood was set on the diagonal. Cost more and took longer, but my DH wanted it so that is what was done. It is dull outside today, so a couple of these seem darker than normal.
Our main floor is very open concept. The U-shaped kitchen has the dining area on the north, living room on the west. The hallway goes to the south and the front door. One of these views is from the front door in, with my sunflower quilt on the wall beside the door to DH's den and the arch to the kit/LR and dining. Turn left there to a bathroom and the door to our walkout, and a few steps down to the laundry and garage door. Clear as mud? 
Anyway, it had been lino in the kitchen/dining and carpet in the halls and LR. The difference in my allergies has been astounding and worth the mess of doing it and cleaning up afterward. It is darker that before, so we are adjusting to that. If anyone is contemplating hardwood, it gets my vote!

I love your floor and it on the diagonal too! We've been thinking about this for some time (slow movers). But I wasn't certain if I wanted to carry it thru my kitchen. My cabinets are white like yours and I love how it looks. Just beautiful.

Thanks for sharing. Inspirational.

It's lovely. I'm not sure I've seen it on the diagonal, but I think I like it that way. Your DH had a good idea there.
