Select Surfaces Silver Oak Laminate Flooring
I have been coveting wanting to install Select Surfaces flooring for a long time, seriously years.  I have six kids and a dog and I needed something durable, beautiful, and affordable.

You can not beat the beauty, price, and quality on this flooring anywhere, it looks and feels like hardwood, plus I never have to worry about refinishing it!  Needless to say I am in love.

The hardest part for me was choosing a color...the are all swoon worthy.  I finally decided to go with Silver Oak, I was worried it would be too dark, but it is perfection. :)

Before I get to all the pretty pictures of my amazing new floor...let me share a few before shots and don't worry...I will be sharing my tutorial on how I installed this floor ALL BY MYSELF in a few short weeks!  You know I won't leave you hanging.
before of home with three different types of flooring
Once upon a time...a few weeks ago my main living space had three separate types of flooring.
time to replace the flooring
The once white carpet was completely disgusting (yes I know, hard to believe it used to be white...I did mention 6 kids and a dog right?!), and the bamboo flooring was beautiful but after years of abuse it was scratched to an oblivion.

I was SO beyond ready to rip it all out...

And it was all smooth sailing until I got to the tile.

I think this picture speaks volumes.  With the help of my Son and a few of his friends we had the carpet and bamboo flooring out in about an hour, but the tile...oh the tile.

That took days.  So much fun. Not.  Thank goodness it was only a small section.
