New floor

We put a new floor in the bathroom tonight. That’s right we put a new floor in our own bathroom in about 3 hours; looks great too. I got two different flooring companies to give me quotes for lino in the bathroom; was much more expensive than I expected it to be. Our tiler told us about Allurefloating floors that you can buy from Mitre 10 for a fraction of the price of lino.
Mr Ecochick and I put the floor in together this evening; the floor was easy to put in it literally clicked together just like the packaging said. It was a little complicated to get started and took Mr Ecochick a short while to work out the layout – don’t ask me I have NO idea how to match up all the tiles or how it worked. Once we had started the first few rows though it all fitted together really quickly so quickly that we also put in the new fancy toilet.
I don’t know how long this floor will last or how it will stand up to the conditions of a bathroom though it is advertised for all areas of the home including the bathroom. At this price though I figured ok it might be so ‘green” to have to replace it in a few years time but if it needs replacing we will figure it out then. Who knows it might last years (the product does come with a 25 year warranty so that must mean something). All in all this product looks great and was easy to put in.

    Hi, thanks guys I think it looks grand too. It comes in a bunch of different colours so we’re doing the same slate look but in a lighter colour for the new laundry/ toilet. The floor appears to be made of HDF laminate. The floor does appear to be a little slipper though so we are going to put something on it to reduce this problem (not sure what yet – maybe some kind of wax).

    Will have to look into that….needing something for the bedrooms….the carpet is only a square that was tacked down to hold it in place and it’s really worn out and horrid…this might be the ideal solution as I really want to get away from the carpet and the dust that gathers on that….hmmm off to do some research

    That looks great – I bet it will last a long time. These laminate floor materials are so popular now because they usually do last and look so good. Nice job! I love how you call your husband Mr. Ecochick – made me giggle! Nice to meet you through the Ultimate Blog Challenge! ~ Suerae

    The floor was a cheap option and I love that you can change the whole look of a room in an afternoon. Please let me know what you find out about this product and if you choose to use it. Good luck.
    I love that I call my hubby Mr Ecochick too (he likes it as well) makes me giggle too. Suerae your blog looks fantastic I love all the art work. Lovely to meet new people and share what we are all doing.

    Those tiles already look like wood floorings. Actually, tile and wood floorings are both good options. Well, you did a great job looking for ones that would suit the bathroom well.
