    I’m not a homeowner, but I entered anyway. If I win, I’d love to send the prize over to my parents for their new-to-them house!

      I’m planning the same thing if I win! I don’t own yet, but my in-laws are looking to sell their house soon and replace the flooring on their first floor on a budget.

    I’m SO excited about this giveaway!!! We’ve been trying to figure out how to replace our floors on a tight budget…the floor was damaged when we moved in and is getting worse so we have to replace by this summer. Anyway, this giveaway is just what we need!! Keeping my fingers crossed! Any recommendations on inexpensive but durable flooring? Just incase we don’t win, because I wouldn’t say the odds are ever in our favor! A girl can dream though!!

      We love our laminate floors. We have 3 kids, 3 dogs and a kitty. We will upgrade to hardwood, but after the kids are grown up.

      I have seen floors that looked great that were just stained plywood/luan that was sealed well. As long as your floors are fairly level, it’s not too complicated to install.

      We just put in some Allen & Roth laminate from Lowes that was $2/sf…..it looks awesome and doesn’t sound plastic when you walk on it. It already has the foam on it so all it required over concrete was a vapor barrier but when we put the same floor over OSB, it was all set to go.

      Leah – don’t underestimate sheet vinyl. It’s a lot better than it used to be. They make lots of nice/realistic patterns these days and its super easy to keep clean. I know it’s not “hot” right now, but we just put some that looks like tile in our new house. I really like them! And no cold tile on the feet.

      I’ve also seen wood plank looking vinyl that could probably save you money and would be DIY-friendly.

      Good luck!

      Leah, I may be COMPLETELY mistaken, however…if memory serves me correctly, I recall reading or seeing something about awesome sealed cork floors. If the fine folks at YHL have info, this reader hopes they share. I will try to search my history and dig up the link.again, I may be off my rocker, but thought I’d share nonetheless. Good luck!

      Previous comment retracted…I think it was on the YHL site that I read about the cork floors a few years back. Guess I thought it was a great idea back then, too.

      We have wood-look vinyl plank in our basement. No one can tell it’s vinyl and it’s super durable and can be cleaned with a mop and water!

      Hi Leah – If you want real hardwood floors, we recommend looking at the Impressions Blue Ridge Series. It is an exceptional value for a “real” hardwood floor. http://www.impressionshardwoodcollection.com/flooring/blue-ridge-series/

      We’ll be happy to send you free wood samples to see if this could be the floor for you, just click on this link, fill out the form, and we’ll get them in the mail to you and tell you where to find an Impressions dealer near you.

    I was just talking to my husband about getting rid of the carpet in the dining room! Carpet. In the dining room. Oy.

  5. Danielle C says

    Ooooooh I REALLY want this one! We are building our house, and drywall is being finished next week. Ordering our hardwood is JUST around the corner! :)

  6. Katie says

    I’m a renter, but hoping that if I win that I can convince our landlords to use this to replace their floors… it really needs an update!!
