Choosing the Best Hardwood Flooring

As you might know, Jake and I have been living a few weeks in our new home sans flooring (thanks to the lovely housewarming gifts the previous owners’ cats left us.. all over the carpet..).  We are ready as ever to get some clean surface under our feet to walk around on!  There are so many choices of flooring though, it can be overwhelming at times.

Luckily we were able to narrow it down right off the bat.  We’re both partial to hardwood flooring and knew that we would definitely be taking that route.  Even with that in mind, it still seemed like we had an insurmountable task of choosing the best hardwood flooring (without breaking the bank too much at the same time).  Well, I’m happy to say I’ve learned a lot – like more than any girl should ever know – about hardwood flooring choices and so I figure I might as well share my newly begotten expertise here with you!  (That way all the info you need on choosing the best hardwood flooring for you is right here in one post, and you don’t have to go all google-crazy on the interwebs finding obscure details about every hardwood out there)

Choosing the Best Hardwood Flooring for You

First off, let’s go over the various types of hardwoods you can buy and their finishing options.  There are pretty much three overarching categories of hardwood flooring (narrowing your choice to just one or two of these categories will help you immensely!)

How to Choose the Best Hardwood Floors  |  Mrs. Fancee

Unfinished Hardwood Flooring – that’s right, wood in the purest form.  Basically when you buy unfinished hardwood it comes unsealed and unstained.  You will need to have the floor installed (or do it yourself) then stained to the color of your choice and finished off with a sealant.

Pros:

    • Totally customizable, any color or finish you want you have the option to use.
    • Potential to last multiple lifetimes, because this flooring has a substantial layer of hardwood on top, it can be sanded down and refinished many times.
    • Perfectly smooth flooring, this is the only option where you can perfectly flat floors.  Unfinished hardwood floors come with squared edges and are sanded so the seams blend together. (Vs other prefinished options that have slightly beveled edges and you can always feel a slight dip between boards)
    • Can be cheaper than prefinished hardwood, unless you have to pay for someone to finish it (so a good money-saving option for DIYers)

Cons:

    • You have to have it finished, and this can take time and money.  You won’t be able to install your floors and move everything back in the next day.  It takes time to sand, stain, and seal your flooring.
    • You don’t get some of the cool modern finishes, if your into hand scraped or wire brushed floors it will take a specialty contractor to apply this finish to your unfinished hardwood floor.

Recommendation:  If you are a traditionalist, wood enthusiastic, DIYer or a true details person, unfinished hardwood flooring could be a great choice for you.  It’s totally customizable, ultimately the most quality flooring if done right, and a cheaper option IF you finish and install yourself.

Prefinished Hardwood Flooring – real hardwood flooring that comes pre-stained and sealed.  You get a ready-to-go floor that’s still the real deal… Sounds like a great option right?

Pros:

    • Floors that last for generations, again this is real hardwood and can be sanded and refinished multiple times.
    • Modern finish options, prefinished floors now come in a plethora of different styles and finishes.  You can get almost any look you want.
    • Low time commitment, once the floor is installed, you’re done!  No need to slide around in socks for days while you wait for the polyurethane sealer to cure.

Cons:

    • Can be more expensive, you pay for convenience.  And with this choice you’re getting the best quality with the most convenience, so it makes sense that you’d pay more.
    • No perfectly smooth flooring, as mentioned above, any pre-finished flooring comes with slightly beveled edges on each board to prevent chips during installation.  This will result in slight ridges between planks.

Recommendation:  If you value the solidity and long-lasted-ness of solid hardwood, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of finishing it (and don’t mind paying a little more) prefinished hardwood flooring is for you.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring – this is a fun new option available in hardwood flooring.  Basically the flooring base is made up of treated plywood and a thin (2-5mm) veneer of real wood is added on top.  Once installed most could never tell it was engineered.

Pros:

    • Install options, you can nail, glue, or float the flooring so depending on what you prefer (ease of install, quality install, etc.) you can find an engineered hardwood that does it
    • Hardwood floors over concrete slab, now I don’t know all those structural engineering details… but before this type of flooring was inventing you couldn’t install hardwoods over concrete slab.  But because engineered hardwood can be glued or floated you can now do so.
    • Price point, in general engineered flooring tends to be a cheaper option than the rest due to the fact that less real wood is used.
    • Modern finish options, again it comes in lots of options like hand scraped or wire brushed.

Cons:

    • Limited lifetime, some engineered hardwood flooring cannot be sanded and refinished (if it’s less than 2mm thick), and some others can but only once, possibly twice.
    • Not ‘solid’ hardwood, and can be an inferior product because it is manmade.  You have to know and trust the brand for quality before purchasing.
    • Chance of warping, back to checking the quality of the engineered before purchasing: some very thin and poorly made veneers can warp and buckle.

Recommendation:  If you’re not stuck on ‘solid hardwood,’ a little forward-thinking, thrifty, DIY-handy, and enjoy modern finishes, engineered hardwood could be a great choice for you.

ENFP Decorating for the Inspirer

Welcome back to Decorating for your Personality. Today we’re delving into ENFP, decorating for the Inspirer.  This is one post in a sixteen part series looking at how your Myers Briggs personality profile affects your decorating choices.  Most recently we looked at ESFP (Performer) and principles they should be considering in their home decor. In this series, it’s important to remember that everyone has different tastes when it comes to home decor, but each of us have preferences that can often be traced back to our personality profile and how we perceive and react to the world.  By better understanding our personality profile, we can make informed decorating decisions that can lead to more peaceful living and well-rounded lives.

In this guide, I will not attempt to tell you whether country cottage fits you better, or if you are more the modern eclectic type.  We all are drawn to different styles, and similar personalities will not necessarily have similar decorating tastes.  But, they will have similar ways of making decisions, evaluating choices, and experiencing the decor in their homes.  Which is why, in this series, I will be focusing on broader concepts and decision making  in your home decor versus specific design styles.

Decorate for your Personality

ENFP, also known as Champion or Advocate, are most recognized for their contagious enthusiasm.  Women ENFP’s are fairly well represented at 10% of the population while men ENFP’s make up 8%.  Famous persons with this personality type include: Bill Clinton, Julie Andrews, Dr. Seuss, and Robin Williams (what a fun bunch to be associated with!).

ENFP’s are people-oriented individuals with a focus on possibilities.  They spread their excitement over new ideas to those around them and are excellent motivators and encouragers.  Extremely well-spoken, ENFP’s can navigate conversations with ease and be very persuasive.  They are very aware of themselves, but must take time alone to ‘re-center’ so that their emotional excitement over new things doesn’t make them lose touch with their values.  Overall, Inspirers are warm, energetic, and ingenuous risk-takers, with many diverse talents.

 ENFP (The Inspirer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

ENFP Decorating

  • Bring Excitement.  One of the most beautiful qualities of an ENFP is their overflowing excitement and joy for life.  It’s contageous!  Show your infectious enthusiasm in the colors, styles, and forms you use to decorate your home.  Go bold, or subtely dramatic.  Whatever helps excite you, display it.  Get giddy at the site of marble?  Try an accent backplash.  Are you inspired by the beauty of music?  Paint lyrics on the wall.  Reds, oranges, pinks! Whatever helps excite you, incorporate that into your house and share it with others.  Be intense, that’s you!

ENFP (The Inspirer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

  • Create Personal Space. Moreso than other Extroverts, ENFP’s need to take time alone to recenter themselves and make sure their passion and enthusiasm is in line with their personal values.  Creating a space for just you to take time and collect your thoughts and evaluate the goings on in life will help you as you pursue your goals.

ENFP (The Inspirer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

  • Inject Meaning.  ENFP’s seek meaning in everything.  They try to adapt their life according to their personal values and to find inner peace.  Incorporate meaning into your home as a greater reflection of you and the journey of life you are on.  Find a song or verse particularly meaningful?  Frame it.  Have a keepsake or picture that signifies a treasured memory?  Display it proudly.  Let your home reflect what has impacted you most in life.

ENFP (The Inspirer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

  • Simplify Routine.  Do you find that little mundane everyday tasks are the bane of your existence???  You are not along, ENFP’s commonly view the details of everyday life as drudgery, preferring instead to focus on the world of exciting possibilities.  To free your hands and mind for more interesting endeavors, try and simplify the routines in your life.  You can use your home to help in this arena by creating easily accessible storage for quick cleanup, using a command center to organize your tasks, and creating routines for members of the household to contribute.

ENFP (The Inspirer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

  • Use your Gifts.   Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty!  ENFP’s are broadly talented and often good at whatever interests them.  If you’ve been stalking some DIY pins on pinterest for a while, go ahead and try them!  Chances are you will do great :)  As a project oriented individual, you will have the focus it takes to exceed.  Just be careful to practice diligence as it can be easy for an ENFP to move on to another project without finishing the first.

ENFP (The Inspirer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

  • Incorporate Others.  The Nurture’s infectious enthusiasm often inspires others to the same cause.  Because of this ENFP’s can be very influential individuals.  Use your persuasion skills wisely and get others involved in your home and the projects and decorating you tackle.  Chances are not only can you convince them to help, but they will enjoy being around such a life-celebrating individual!

ENFP (The Inspirer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

  • Accommodate People. ENFP’s are people lovers who bring out the best in others.  They place a high importance on relationships and are often well-liked.  Let your great people skills infuse into your home decor and furniture arrangements.  Use seating configurations that maximize personal conversation.  Create a gathering area around the kitchen so you can spend time with others while you cook.  Incorporate the people you love into your home!

ENFP (The Inspirer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

Good News for the Inspirer

1.  You are risk-taker.  Where others may be afraid to even try, you have the guts and passion to go-for-it and try crazy things!  You’re home can be a bold expression of your talents and zest for life.

 

ENFP (The Inspirer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

2. You’re brimming with ideas and possibilities.  Where others may see a blank wall, you see great potential!  It is a gift to be full of so much inspiration.  This will carry through in your home ideas and decorating for a creative and beautiful home.

Cookin’ Up Some Kitchen Dreams

Without a doubt, the room I’ve spent the most time daydreaming about is the kitchen.  There are just so many choices and options, it can keep me entertained for hours :)  Since I have such elaborate schemes hatching in my head, I figured… why not share them with you?  They are just dreams for now, more pressing items include installing flooring so we aren’t living on plywood sub floors.  But why not dream a little… ? ;)

First, a look at layout.  Below is the house layout for the first floor as is now.

First Floor

First Floor Layout  |  Mrs. Fancee

As I mentioned in my post of house pictures (where I totally forgot to show any second floor pics…), ideally I would love for the wall between the kitchen and the dining room to be gone.  Now, Jake has given it his preliminary assessment…. and he believes the wall won’t be load bearing (based on the direction of the trusses in the attic), but there will be a gas line to move :/  Which could cost a bit, so we will see.

Wall to Demo  |  Mrs. Fancee

You can see above how the kitchen is laid out now, and the wall that I would like to remove.

The layout I’ve been dreaming up in my head looks like this:

kitchen layout  |  Mrs. Fancee

 

After removing the wall, I extended the area of the kitchen two feet into the dining room (I think there will still be plenty of space in there).  The sink will be in the same place mostly because it needs to be under the window and you can’t move that ;)  (yay for not rerouting water lines!) But the oven will relocate to the ‘nook wall’ while the Fridge ends up on the other side of the sink.

Below is a mood board that gives a good feel of the look I’d like for our kitchen…

Kitchen Mood Board

Kitchen Inspiration  |  Mrs. Fancee

I’m a big fan of the domsjo IKEA farmhouse sink (pictured above).  It is pretty reasonable, as far as those types go, and it is huge and not too deep!  I’m already in love ;)  It would be neat to have an industrial sprayer faucet too.  You can also see some subway tile on the board.  Predictable? Maybe, but it’s just so classically beautiful that i can’t resist!

Cabinet inspiration  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

Let’s talk cabinets.  Now, in my opinion, cabinets make a kitchen… and to achieve the perfect look I’m dreaming of (and not spend a fortune) we would have to make them ourselves….  But, that may be a bigger project than we can take on, it remains to be seen.  I would LOVE to have chunky, modular inset shaker cabinets, like the ones pictured above.  Now, IKEA sells some shaker-like cabinets that are nice, but they are overlay…  And for some ridiculous reason, I really love inset better.  I think because inset cabinets really speak to quality craftsmanship and give an authentic ‘older’ look, as they have to be very carefully measured and made to fit snuggly inside the the face and they really aren’t made that way very often anymore because of the custom precision necessary.

(Cabinet 101: inset doors sit inside the face frame and you can see the frame in between the cabinets. partial overlay cabinet doors sit on top of the face frame but do not touch each other.  full overlay are on top of the face frames and cover them completely)

Blue Cabinets  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

Another fun (and maybe crazy) idea I am throwing around is white uppers with blue (or teal or navy) lowers.  Daring… right?  I think it could look so fun and classy.  But there is danger that it is a little ‘trendy’ and could look cliche.

And this brings us to countertops…. (dun dun dun duuuunnn)  If we were to do non-white lowers, I think the counters would have to be white to balance the color and darkness in the room.  And friends, in an ideal world, I would have marble countertops all day, everyday.  But, I recognize that they are not the most scratch/etch resistant surface out there and therefore not the most practical.  (Marble has been the source of some friendly verbal sparring between Jake and I. ;) )

Of course there is granite, of which I would prefer the least ‘grainy’ look attainable in a light light grey.  Laminate, without a doubt is the most practical choice for a kitchen… but just not the most beautiful.  I briefly considered solid surface countertops because I think they can look nice in a modern white, until I read they they are extremely stainable… If we are getting high-maintenance countertops, they might as well be marble ;)  Concrete is beautiful, and DIYable, but also high-maintenance (and a lot of work to make lol).  So we will see…

Island   |  Mrs. Fancee

via

 See that island?  I love the idea of a skinny island in a galley kitchen.  In my kitchen diagram above I added a narrow island that I think would serve to add lots of prep space as well as a little extra storage.  Maybe if I’m too chicken to go with blue lowers, I can do all white cabinets and a blue island :)

Open Shelving  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

I’m thinking instead of upper cabinets around the stove, some kind of open shelving, maybe like the picture above.  Also I just had to squeeze my ‘appliance garage’ in there.  Did you notice it in my layout plan?  I love the idea that you have a cabinet that sits on top of your counter and houses those appliances that are usually in the way like the microwave and toaster oven.  And you can close the door and they are out of sight!

It’s fun to dream about the pretty stuff since lately the house realities have looked more like this….

But it’s all part of the process, and dreams like this that keep it going :)

We Did It! We are officially Homeowners :)

We did it!!!  We are finally in, no longer homeless, and we are homeowners!!!! :)  Woohoo!!!  Monday night, it was quite the adventure, but nevertheless… We made it.

We closed at around 4pm, but by the time we grabbed lunch, loaded our mattress in the car, and got to the house, it was about 6pm.  So many crazy emotions!  Like, Wow, this is ours!…. Wow, there are SO MANY mosquitoes! … Oh my goodness, we are living here now!!!!!!!!!! 

WP_20140707_001

Enter the house… and our nostrils are assaulted by the smell of cat urine.. everywhere.  I can’t we didn’t know already, but boy, it smelled awful.  The original plan was to try and live the carpet as-is for a while to save up for new flooring.  But, after several minutes in that smell we decided it all had to go, that night.  So we spent our first evening as home-owners ripping out carpets and padding, coughing because our noses were in so much pain, and attempting to bring some feeling of ‘clean’ to the house.

WP_20140707_002

I have concluded that the previous homeowners just never cleaned.  They never did, not once.  Everything is nasty.  So we tried to prioritize last night.  While Jake ripped up carpet I attempted to sanitize the bathroom so it could be usable.  Let me just say… that toilet and I are now acquainted on an intimate level.  I started scrubbing at some stains on the toilet and quickly realized that in fact they were caked on poop spots.  blegh..ghllghhg… blehhh!  (I promise I usually right about nice, pretty stuff… sorry for all this nast!)

WP_20140707_011

Even after ripping up most all of the carpet, there may still be an odor in the subfloor… We will see.  I did read that priming the subfloor is pretty effective at sealing odors in though, anyone have experience with this?

WP_20140707_029

We picked the kitties up last night and they are very happy to be reunited with us.  Hopefully, they like it here and aren’t too mad at us for boarding them for a whole week!  This is how Pumpkin originally felt about the move:

20140610_231319 (1)

But, I think she will come around and eventually love this place!  Maybe once it no longer smells and is covered in layers of grime….

It’s all part of the process though, and I think we are going to really enjoy tackling these projects together…  Even though we felt nasty and could hardly breath that first night, Jake said, This is fun right?  And I said, Yes it is :)

ESFP Decorating for the Performer

Welcome back to Decorating for your Personality.  In this post we’ll take a look at ESFP, decorating for the Performer.  This is one post in a sixteen part series delving into how your Myers Briggs personality profile affects your decorating choices.  Most recently we looked at ISFJ (Nurturer) and principles they should be considering in their home decor. In this series, it’s important to remember that everyone has different tastes when it comes to home decor, but each of us have preferences that can often be traced back to our personality profile and how we perceive and react to the world.  By better understanding our personality profile, we can make informed decorating decisions that can lead to more peaceful living and well-rounded lives.

Decorate for your Personality

ESFP the Performer, also known as Provider or Supporter, represent around 12% of the population.  These are our social butterflies, upholders of integral institutions, and true servants to humanity.  Some famous fictional ESFP’s include Monica from Friends, Molly Weasley from Harry Potter, and Baloo from the Jungle Book.  For a more indepth analysis of the ESFP, visit here.

This is a fun type for me to write because I think of my best friend who is inbetween the ESFP and ESFJ.  I totally see some of these awesome traits in her, like her constant overflow of bubbly joy, and her carefree spirit.  She may deny it, but put her with a group of people and she is definitely the life of the party :)

ESFP’s thrive on people and new exciting experiences.  They are the sympathetic team players that help mitigate conflict and create a fun environment for everyone.  These spontaneous and optimistic individuals don’t deal too much with theory, but live in the concrete world of hands-on application, and practical advise.  The ESFP resist structure and routine. Overall this loving type is flexible, kind-hearted, and gifted with a special ability to enjoy life.

 ESFP (The Performer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

ESFP Decorating

  • Dramatize your Home.  No, not Desperate Housewives kind of drama…  ESFP’s thrive on new experiences, excitement and the drama of life.  Their fun-loving, spontaneous nature should be proudly displayed in their home.  Be bold, and unexpected in your decorating.  Buying some neutral bases is a great idea, so you can change up accessories (such as pillowcases on a couch) to your heart’s desire!  Bring some drama to your home decor, spice up life to match your fun-loving personality.

  • Go with the Flow. As a Performer, you have a wonderful ability to improvise in all situations and function best without the constraints of structure and routine.  Don’t worry about following decorating ‘rules,’ follow your instincts and your home will be a more beautiful as a true reflection of yourself.

ESFP (The Performer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

  • Learn by Doing.  Want to try something in your home, but you’re not sure how it will turn out?  ESFP’s are hands-on learners.  ‘Just do it’ might as well be your new motto, because it is the best way for you to experience new ideas as a Performer.  While some personalities prefer to theorize and plan lengthily on a project they are thinking of, ESFP’s live in the here and now.  Learning to get your hands dirty on that project you’ve wanted to try is a key step in your home decor success.

ESFP (The Performer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

  • Offer Solutions.  The ESFP tends to be extremely observant of others’ feelings, sensing when they are in distress.  While not prone to offering theoretical advice, the Performer is excellent at providing a solution to a practical need.  Set up your home so that it supports this delightful trait.  Have your guest rooms stocked with a basket of emergency supplies.  Create a coffee or tea bar for those days when a neighbor needs a warm drink.  Let your home be a safe environment that is always ready to provide help for those in need.

ESFP (The Performer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

via

  • Trust Yourself.   ESFP’s tend to have a strong appreciation for aesthetic beauty, and an excellent understanding of space and function.  They tend to make decisions based on their personal values.  In addition, the Performer often delights in the finer things in life.  Considering all these traits, the ESFP ought to trust their instincts in home decorating and they are likely to end up with a beautiful home.  No second guessing! ;)

ESFP (The Performer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

  • Celebrate Life.  The Performer’s wonderful joy for life often displays itself in an acute appreciation of children, animals, and nature.  Celebrate your overflow of joy and spread it to others through how you furnish your home.  If you have kids, create a fun kids room with creative aspects.  Consider adding bird houses and feeders across your yard.  If you’re a green thumb, bring the outdoors in with houseplants and window flowers.

ESFP (The Performer)  |  Decorating for your Personality  |  Mrs. Fancee

  • Eliminated Stress. Stress and an ESFP do not mix well together.  Anxiety can foster negative thinking which becomes overwhelming to the Performer.  Furnish and decorate your home in a way that minimizes stress and situations that create it.  If mess stresses you, try and organize your home so that clutter can be contained behind doors and items’ homes are within a convenient reach.  Incorporate decoration items that soothe and bring peace into your home such as candles and light dimmers.

Good News for the Nurturer

1.  For the Performer, your home is your stage.  Display your unique and fun-loving personality in the colors and quirks of your house.  Sharing yourself with others is extremely important to the ESFP, you can achieve this in the ways you furnish and decorate your home.

2. You’re a natural host/ess.  While others way be unsure on the ins and outs of entertaining and helping others feel at ease within their own homes, Performers can effortlessly transform their home into a fun and comfortable environment for all who enter.
