Shopping For New Hardwood Floors

I have talked about this long enough, time to find just the right floor and get rid of the really worn carpet.

 Off to Floor & Decor to find just the perfect floors.  If you havn't been to one of their stores, you have really missed out. (Thank you to Floor & Decor for sponsoring this post, all opinions  are strictly my own.)

   When you enter the store it is almost overwhelming, just look at what all they have to choose from.   On my right I saw more tile than I had ever seen before.  Since I am doing a kitchen remodel I had to take a look at all the tile while I was there.

Then on my left I could see pallets of floor tile and way to the left rows of wood flooring.

I was familiar with this store since my daughter bought her Travertine and Hardwoods from them for her remodel last year and I had a ball shopping with her.  However I had no idea they had so much to offer so I was thrilled when they  invited me to have a store tour with their Glendale manager, Jed Hauser and their Lead Design Specialist James Robbins.   Both were so friendly and showed me through the whole store and explained all of their services and products.

All of their design services are free (how fabulous is that) and they have dozens of displays all over the store to show you how to create a unique look to fit your style.

If you're working on a bathroom or kitchen, they have more tile than you could ever hope to find and sample boards showing how it will look installed.  Just look at those gorgeous vessel sinks too.

There are dozens and dozens of sample boards.  There is so much inspiration to help you design your perfect space.  Since I will be looking for a back splash for my kitchen makeover, I really enjoyed seeing all these designs and samples.

They definitely have all the latest styles.

This is wood salvaged from boats.  How gorgeous is this.  Can't you just see a feature wall or fireplace covered with this.

They have a fabulous selection of counter tops too.  Stones and quartz that is sold in cut lengths.  You don't have to buy a whole slab, buy just the lengths you need.

They carry a fabulous black granite that I loved and would be perfect for my new countertops and a 9' section is only $338.26.  That is an incredible price, so if you are looking for quartz or granite, by all means check them out.

I have never seen such an extensive selection of butcher block counters either.  This blew me away.  Look at all those exotic woods.

They have the latest in porcelain tiles  and

the wood look porcelain tile that is so popular

and really looks like wood.

These large 6' slabs are the latest for luxurious floors too.

See all the marble - - I was just drooling

Marbles in every color and

 their selection of Travertine is amazing. (sorry this one is so blurry)

They also have aisle after aisle of vinyl and wood floors - laminates -
 engineered - bamboo and solid hardwoods.

 If you are doing any kind of remodel, you can find anything you need at Floor & Decor.  They even have every tool you need to do the job.  Definitely one stop shopping to finish any project.  I was like a kid in a candy story drooling over all the choices and possibilities for making over my home.  I picked out several samples of flooring to take home and see how it would look in my house.  Time to make a choice.

  1. What an awesome store We don't have any here that I know of, the selection is amazing. The tile hardwood you showed is in our laundry room, it's awesome


  2. What an amazing selection! Have fun choosing.

  3. Lots of inspiration here. I'm making lots of selections, too, as we are building our new home. So many more choices than 25 years ago.

  4. That is an awesome store! I'm overwhelmed just looking at the pictures. Looking forward to seeing what you select.

  5. I never heard of that store - it's huge - you must have had a tough time choosing!

  6. Wow what a great store Marty. I can't imagine not finding just the perfect tile or wood floors or counter tops with all the great choices. Good luck in all your choices.

  7. What an amazing place to shop, we don't have anywhere with quite the choice as that in Auckland. Hardwood floors are just the best though, I have had them put in the beach house I have just had built, in fact you can see the post over at my blog which I have just published. The floors are engineered oak and have a greyish beige look to them which are perfect for the Hamptons style I have gone for. Have you decided what you will choose? I do like the wood look tiles but tiles are much colder than wood but then again it depends on your climate, for us in NZ it would be ok in the summer but not the winter as our houses don't have central heating. Mind you, you can always put rugs down on top or sisal rugs which look great with wood. Here is the link to the post where you can see the wood floors:

  8. Hi Marty! Oh, how exciting! I know you'll pick out the most perfect flooring. This store is just amazing and I know I'd get dizzy in there. I've missed your posts and scrolled down to see your newly painted kitchen! It's just beautiful! I'm so happy for you. Thank you so much for popping in to see me and blessings to you and your family.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
