Inspiration Files: Wood Floors

When Jared and I bought our house as a foreclosure, the bank that owned it replaced all the gross flooring with a very light beige carpet. It looked good for approximately two seconds before everything in the world had attached itself to our carpet. No matter how often I vacuum, spot clean, or shampoo the carpets, it doesn't matter. Each time I vacuum is like a science experiment. I. Hate. Our. Carpet.

Jared and I are planning are tearing out the carpet (HALLELUJAH!) in the living room and upstairs common area and replacing the flooring in the kitchen, living room, stairway and the landing at the top of the stairs. We originally planned on buying the new floors sometime this month, but with my surgery and having to buy a new car, our plans have been pushed back a bit. In the meantime, I figured I'd scour pinterest for floor inspiration.

I absolutely love everything about this last photo. Everything.

Jared and I want a medium-dark stain on the floors and a rustic and mismatched quality to it. We'll see if the budget allows for it! I'm so excited to get the carpet out of the house!!
