Looks like a lot of work but once done it is yours and you can enjoy it or move on.

It's looking good! Can I ask why you went with carpet tiles and not just regular carpet?

Well to be perfectly honest, I think I wanted to both save money and have something a bit fancier than beige, cheap carpet. At ~$400, i'd like to think i did ok?

I've read that tiles are expensive than roll-out carpet. I was just wondering though, wife and I want to replace all the carpet in the house, plus we plan on renting the house out, so carpet tile might be the best way to go to replace stains and what not. How does the carpet feel? How's the padding?

I could see how that would make sense for a rental property as you could replace sections instead of the whole room. As long as the cost is around the same.

Lowes just gave me an estimate of my living room which is 225sq ft, and 12 squares/box is only 32sq ft, would cost me $800 to do the living room. Maybe I just did my calculations wrong.

I used the ones from home depot online.

I would say it depends on the tiles. If you order Flor brand, they are very pricey, but the cheaper ones I got are fine for me just as well. Soft on the feet but virtually no pad. Great for pet homes like ours. Not very cushy like regular carpet, but a good compromise for what we were looking for.

Hmm, I'm sure renters want padded carpet.

Also I would definitely recommend the 18" tiles for the higher end look and the same price if anyone decides to go with them.

Hey, we sure are fixing upping.

Probably a year or more before we really get to tackle the bones of the kitchen. Cabinets are mostly going. I will reuse them in other places in the house. I want to replace them with new IKEA cabinetry which I'll get delivered from Houston. I wish I could keep them but they have seen better days like so many other parts of the house.

I really dislike IKEA for two reasons: the quality is usually sub-par, especially for the price, and you run the risk of death by dowel avalanche when opening the box.

And I really am not trying to be rude. I'm all about other ideas and alternatives - it just seems like you are trying to sell me cabinets and I don't even need any yet. Just clarifying your intentions is all. Thanks for visiting.

I have plans for cabinets, but they're on hold at the moment. I don't expect to be doing any cabinetry for the next year, and will probably build my own custom set when the time comes.

Thank you though.

(...and now back to your regularly scheduled thread!)
