Our house is only a couple of years old, but it is starting to need some remodeling. First of all, our entry way was just white carpet, so with people coming in and out all the time, the carpet near the door would constantly be dirty. I hated cleaning the carpet there almost weekly. The second thing that needed work was our kitchen. We had vinal, and it looked nice, but it was starting to look a little worn. And the third thing is our family room. We have these two little hellians, named Belle and Bear, who tend to make little potty messes in a specific spot in our family room, and so I am also tired of cleaning that carpet in there. So, for a while, I have been wanting to do something about those areas, but thought that it would cost too much money. We were visiting some friends who just finished putting Pergo (laminant flooring that looks like hard wood) down in their house. It looked really good, and it was actually was pretty cheap. So we thought that we'd put Pergo down on our whole main floor, consisting of the entry way, kitchen and family room. After thinking about it, we decided to do tile in the kitchen and entryway, because it would be a little more durable to wet and dirty feet coming in and out. We just finished the tile this week (yay!), and hopefully will start the Pergo soon in the living room. And yes, it was WE. I helped Casey with the tile in the kitchen, and it actually was pretty fun. If you want to spend quality time with your spouse, laying tile is a fun thing to do! haha!
