A huge thanks to Pergo for partnering with Domestically Speaking in our flooring makeover. I’ve been so excited to share with you our finished flooring project! This has been a big undertaking as we replaced all our downstairs flooring… but it has been SO worth it. Since we moved into our home 9+ years ago I’ve been wanting to rip out our old carpet, linoleum and tile. It’s absolutely amazing what a difference new flooring makes in a space.
Why We Picked Pergo Outlast+
We decided to go with Pergo Outlast+ laminate flooring for a few reasons. First I loved that it was 24-hour water resistant which is a hugely important factor when you have 3 kiddos. You know the spills that kids like to leave or that renegade ice cube that likes to hide under the cabinets. I love that this flooring is durable and resists scratches. I love the look of those long wood plank too.
Second I loved how it looked. You can check out my post from a few weeks ago when I talked about how we picked this flooring and how we installed it. But I truly fell in love with the Vintage Tobacco Oak. I love the stain color with warm amber tones, yet hints of gray. I picked flooring that I knew would be coordinating with our home decor.
I love the variation of color tones in the planks and I love how it went with gray, since we have a lot of gray tones in our downstairs. These pergo floors fit perfectly into our space.
I love that the wood has a little rustic vibe to it with the grain and distressed grooves in it. I love what added texture can do in a space. It gives the room some natural character with this rustic element.
We didn’t even need to remove our baseboards for installation. Pergo has perfectly matching quarter round molding. You just install the quarter round to cover the expansion gap you place around the room and your edges are beautifully finished.
What a difference! The whole downstairs has a whole different feel with these pergo laminate floors!
I’m super excited to tackle my office space. We’re turning our formal dining room (which had become a dumping ground) into my office. I’m hoping to get it tackled in the next few weeks, so stay tuned… but the floors in here are looking gorgeous!
I hope you enjoyed checking out our new flooring as much as I’m loving it. It definitely was a big DIY project, but it’s been worth all the time it’s taken.
A big thanks to Pergo for partnering with me on our new flooring. As always all opinions expressed are my own.
