Home Makeover with Pergo Laminate Flooring
If you’ve been following my Pergo floor makeover you will remember our Pergo shopping trip at Lowes and our post about installing Pergo laminate flooring. It’s taken a while to finish the trim because of a few door issues from having our foundation lifted back into place (finally had to purchase a new door), but the room is finished!
Because of the layout of my house, it’s a little difficult to get a full room picture. I snapped a few so you can hopefully get a feel for the room. I am loving the diversity in patterns in this color (Lassiter Oak). With the other brand flooring that we had to pull up for the foundation repair we had some repetition that made it look very unnatural and fake.
We went with a little darker color than our last floor, but still wanted to pick a color that would meld well with the real wood stairs leading out of the room. I was a bit concerned about having wood colored quarter round, as we had white with the last floor that blended into the trim and fireplace well. As you can see above and below, my concerns were unwarranted.
Below is a floor view photo of the flooring and trim. It wasn’t purposeful, but the Lassiter Oak matched well with our coffee table and computer desk also.
I mentioned that our stairs leading out of the living room were real wood. Here is a photo of the laminate floor at the stairs. We intentionally didn’t try to match the colors, but we ended up close enough that they were complimentary and didn’t clash. Isn’t it amazing how close to real wood the Pergo Max laminate flooring looks?!
Below is a photo of the flooring at the top of the stairs going down. The stair nose molding did a fantastic job of finishing off the corner and rounded down to cover the edge. I also wanted to point out in these two photos the “speckles” in this particular color. At first I thought that someone must have dripped stain or paint on them because I didn’t remember speckles in the sample we brought home… but then I remembered we haven’t been painting lately (duh). The entire floor is like that and I love how it gives it a more realistic and broken in look and feel to it.
I hope you enjoyed following our progress choosing and installing our new Pergo Max laminate flooring. I asked my husband when it was all said and done how he felt about the install. He said that anyone that is even partially handy shouldn’t have any issues with this flooring. The hardest part was cutting around crevasses like the edge of the fireplace and also cutting the angles on the trim. With the proper tools it was a fairly simple project with a fabulous outcome!
