House Essentials

We’ve been running around trying to see what’s available in flooring for the new house.  We knew already that we wanted wood floors in the open living/kitchen area and in the bedrooms, with ceramic tile in the bathrooms, utility and mud rooms.  I want to keep things relatively neutral so I can easily change colors and textures when the mood strikes me.

I had been dreading being bombarded with all the choices available, but was pleasantly surprised to find these things pretty soon after beginning our search.

We were hoping to be able to leave the concrete floor in the studio bare, but in order to pass the final inspection, the floor must be covered or finished, so we settled for stained concrete there.  The builder says he will coordinate the color with the wood floors so we have continuity throughout.

Then, on to the brickyard.  We knew we wanted this Burnished Slate color for the metal roof, so kept that in mind when choosing brick.

We both quickly gravitated to the Shellman Bluff brick and decided it was the right one.

So far, things are falling into place more easily than we thought.  Of course, this is only the beginning and there are SO many more choices to be made.
