New Laminate Flooring In Living Room
Hello everyone, i am fairly new to this site. But i wanted to "showcase" some new laminate flooring my father-in-law and i installed. Our pevious carpet was in need of replacing and we wanted some type of laminate wood flooring. We decided to try the laminate from Sam's club, i believe it turned out to be $1.52 a square foot. I am a complete beginner when comes to this kind of work, so i am very proud of how good it turned out.

I hope the link works, this is the first time i have tried to post pics on a forum.

did you, or does anyone need to replace the trim if switching from carpet to laminate?

i am assuming your talking about the quarter round/shoe molding. in my house with the carpet in place the was none. that is something i am working on this weekend. but the base molding stays in place and we left a 1/4" of space between the laminate and the base molding.

thanks for the compliments guys, i couldn't be happier with it. now i have several other small projects i have to attempt now. depending on how they turn out, i may post them too. :thumbsup:
