We really wanted to stay within our insurance allowance and not go over and since our insurance company is covering to replace laminate we chose to just stick with more laminate. Our hearts weren't set on bamboo and we really didn't like any of the color choices. Hardwood was just out of the question for us because of the height of the current floors. The flooring company would have charged more to cut into doorways. We have also decided to order enough flooring to cover the entire house, which we'll have to set aside some time to accomplish!
But alas, we chose: Kronotex, The Wilmington Collection in Jasper Oak. It has a rustic weathered wood look with a textured surface. It's pretty awesome with his dark gray tones! I couldn't be happier with our choice.
This photo makes it look more brown than it is. I really does read within the gray shades.
Can't wait to show you the finished kitchen!!
