Hands down the question I still get most in my DMs is about the flooring we put in our house. We went with wood flooring for probably 90% of the house and did Mara and Wes’ bedrooms and the theater in carpet.
Below are details along with pics to give you an idea of how it came together throughout the house:
WOOD FLOORS: MOHAWK TECWOOD VINTAGE ELEMENTS 7″ IN WINTER OAK
Flooring was one of the things I spent the most time picking out, since we had so much wood throughout the house I did sooo much research and probably looked at a thousand different flooring samples. We wanted to do engineered wood. It’s more cost effective than hardwood but still gives that gorgeous look of wood. I finally decided on their Tecwood Vintage Elements 7″ in Winter Oak and I am so happy that we did! It’s the perfect color – not too light or too dark – and has that perfect balance of warmth without reading too yellow/orange. It has looked so pretty with all of our finishes while we were building and pulling in furnishings and rugs, etc has just made me love the floors even more. They’ve also held up great so far – I know it’s still early haha but between the kids and Mio weighing in at 120 lbs, I’ve been impressed with how great the floors have done so far.
BEDROOM CARPET: MOHAWK SMARTSTRAND SILK NATURAL SPLENDOR II IN MOONBEAM
For Mara and Wes’ bedrooms I went back and forth on whether to do wood floors or carpet and we ended up going with carpet to add a cozy feel that I loved. (Especially since we added Mohawk’s SmartCushion rug pads to make it extra soft, which is great for kids) Mohawk has so many color options and different options depending on how much traffic you think a room will get, etc. so it makes it super easy to find exactly what you’re looking for.
THEATER CARPET: MOHAWK SMARTSTRAND FLAWLESS VISION IN MYSTIC SKY
For our theater room, I knew I wanted something super durable – I was already having visions of popcorn and drinks and who knows what else getting spilled on the carpet 😂 so I went with Mohawk’s SmartStrand Flawless Vision line. It’s super durable and has a subtle design plus it’s low profile so it handles traffic really well. They have tons of color options in this one too.
Hope this helps for you guys asking about flooring details! If you have any more questions about the house, drop in comments below.
