So, today has been spent laying our rubber flooring. I have to admit, Sarah has done almost all of this job, but I have taken some pictures. I even took a little movie of Sarah doing a ‘floor dance’ to make the floor stick down.
We had a huge trauma trying to choose what sort of flooring to have in our kitchen. We initally wanted tiles, but we made a mistake. We put in our units and worktops before our flooring, so we were then limited to only getting very thin flooring, so our washing machine would still fit under our counter. Dumb? Oh yeah. So then we had a trauma about what sort of rubber flooring to get. The company we went with have a very small range of colours and styles, which meant we could choose between black, very dark blue, bright blue/green, and grey. And we could choose to have little bobbles or just flat. I really wanted the blue/green with bobbles, but it would have looked pretty terrible with the tiles (ug, those tiles!). So we went with a flat, grey floor in the hope that it won’t show the dirt too much and won’t make the room look small (the problems we thought we’d have with the darker colours).
