It is time for another update and we have some good news…WE ARE IN!!! Oh my gosh you guys, I can’t even tell you how exciting it is to be able to finally say that! If you follow me over on Instagram, you’ve seen a few sneak peeks. I was overwhelmed with the positive feedback + hundreds of questions on our flooring, so I am sharing all the details here today!
As I mentioned a few months ago on Instagram, we did tile in the kitchen and bathrooms upstairs. We went back and forth repeatedly trying to decide if we should carry it in to the basement. After talking to local friends + hearing from lots of you, we decided to do a wood downstairs since tile is so cold in basements.
When we started looking for woods, I had an exact color in mind. I wanted it to be light and bright, but not read too yellow. I immediately noticed that all of my favorites were from the same company, Hallmark Floors. Once I started working with them, I knew I’d find just the right one. They actually ended up having a few I fell in love with and it made deciding so hard!
When I told them I just needed to see it in the space, they put me in connection with a local dealer, Jeff from Specialty Carpets. You guys…if you are building in Utah you have got to call him. Jeff was amazing!! He brought all of the samples that fit the style I mentioned to the house so I could see them in the space. He was so patient and answered my millions of questions.
We ended up going with Alta Vista in Laguna Oak. We love the color! Going with a natural product that was timeless and would last with the proper care was so important to us. It turned out just how I pictured, and I love how it keeps the basement light and bright.
We are so excited to finally be in the house! It is amazing to see all my visions come to life and I really couldn’t have done it without our designer Ashley. She has been incredible to work with and I highly recommend her. She took my vision for a few rooms in the house and totally turned them in to a reality. I can’t wait to start sharing more details with you so stay tuned! Also if you have any questions at all feel free to leave them in the comments and I will try and answer them all!!
