Over the weekend, we painted 95% of the basement and installed 95% percent of the flooring(all but the staircase and laundry room). Can I get a hallelujah?! Our entire house has a thick layer of dust from the remodel, so excuse my quickie picture.
We decided on Allure flooring.
So far, we are extremely happy with it. It is very easy to install. Initially, it wasn't the cheapest option out there. When you look at all the laminates and tiles and other flooring options, you usually need to factor in the cost of underlayment and a vapor barrier... This floors warranty is void if you use either.. so when you add it all up, this was actually pretty affordable and has 2 less steps for installation. We were also sold on it being a floating floor. Our concrete has about two layers of very old vinyl flooring that we did not want to remove.
I hope to have some better pictures veryyyyy soon, so stay tuned :D
