What's on your floor?

    I hate vacuuming. I'm thinking about doing laminate flooring in the living/dining room area, kitchen and entrances. I have seen it at Costco "starting at $3.29 per square foot." A friend of mine bought something called Pergo and said he liked it but you have to be careful not to get water on it or it will mess it up (entrances/kitchen).

    What's on your floors? Any laminate folks out there? Anyone gotten the laminate flooring via Costco? What do you think about the product? Are there key things I should either make sure the product I buy has or make sure to avoid? Thanks for the advice.

    I've got laminate. It's OK. A couple of places where it's troublesome, but overall nice. If you have pets, I would highly recommend rugs, though, with those things you can get to prevent them from sliding around.

    Hardwood. Apartment living. Original floors. Sanded them and refinished them about 2 years ago and have held up great. Can't beat it.

    Thanks Bydesign. Where is it troublesome? In what way? Did you have it installed or do it yourself?

    I'm a big fan of lanolium. Easy cleaning simple living. Hardwood everywhere but living room (rug), bathroom and kitchen lanolium.

    Dirty draws and Doritos crumbs. Wait, what?

    Well, that's no fun. I have wood laminate in my living room/dining room and I get all sorts of amusement out of my cat trying to make the 90-degree turn and sliding into the wall.

    For starters, 26 alphabet blocks. A plastic farm. Rattle, stuffed penguin, two plastic trains, stuffed rocking horse, wooden animal puzzle, rubber ball, plastic ball, stuffed moose, stuffed cougar, stuffed dog, half a dozen books. Two pacifiers. One sippy cup of water.

    And that's just what I can see from where I'm sitting. :)

    This week's laundry, a few empty Doritos bags, a few bucks in change.

    And some bad carpeting that started out beige.
