Are You in the Process of Updating the Flooring in Your Entire Home?

You are going to be empty nesters next year. And while your 18 and 21 year old daughters cannot begin to imagine what you will do when neither of them are at home, you know that you will have plenty to keep you busy. Able to take long weekend trips without having to worry about getting back in time for your older daughter’s college gymnastics meets or your younger daughter’s high school show choir performances, you are ready to take things at a slower pace. You have plans to take in a couple of different music and arts festivals in the area that have never worked into your schedule in the past, and you are more than anxious to make sure that you finally start tackling the home improvement list that you have been creating.

Top on the list is the installation of bamboo flooring throughout the first level of the house. You have wanted to make this change for years, but in the past you simply could not imagine the chaos of trying to have three or four of you in the home while the work was being done. The fact that the entire kitchen would be involved is the first interruption that you need to think about with any wood floor installation, but this summer seems like a perfect time to tackle this project. As soon as your younger daughter heads to college for her freshman year, your older daughter is going to enter an accelerated nursing program. You and your husband are then going to travel to Greece to celebrate your 30th wedding anniversary. With everyone out of the house, this will be the perfect time to have the bamboo flooring installed.
