Floors and Tile and Carpet, Oh My!

Today was a pretty good day.  Got word that my loan has been moved to underwriting and also had a meeting with Creative Touch Interiors to choose our flooring options.  .

Let me just say that I am a very, very indecisive person.  I make technical decisions year round at work  but when it comes to something that directly relates to me... I need some help when deciding.  I went in feeling confident that I would stick to the budget and have a good idea of what I wanted but that quickly changed when the Representative pulled out the floor plan and options.   The representative, Ali, was AWESOME.  She had a great sense of style and easily nudged me in the right direction when color choices just weren't matching up.     With lots of help from her, here is what I chose:

Kitchen Cabinets - Tahoe Cherry Bordeaux
"Faux Granite" Laminate Counter Tops - Antique Mascerello
Kitchen Floor Tile - 12 x 12 Russet
Grout - Earth

Cherry Hardwood Floors in the Foyer, Powder Room & Mudroom leading to Garage.

Master Bathroom
Vanity:  Maple Espresso
Shower, Bath & Floor Tile:  Fidenza Caffe
Listello:  Stone Radiance, Morning Sun, Tortoise & Mushroom
Grout: Earth
9'' Corner Shelves

Kid's Bathroom
Vanity: Maple Spice
Vinyl Flooring:  Intiator 66204 (will be in the 2nd floor laundry too)
Bath Walls:  6x6 Artic White Ceramic Tile

Standard Carpet & Padding
(Left)  White Fox for the Great Room & Basement  (Right)  Wool Skin for the Dining Room and Second Floor


  1. Great Choices,TechMama! I absolutely love the White Fox!

    1. Thank you! I just can not wait for the day that I walk into the house and see it all together.

  2. Mama, you kit pics are exactly what i have in my current home....and love love love it...i can take a pic if you in my new house we HAD to choose something different, Nadase and i will have the same kitchen...ahahahaha.....Add me to your site, and if you want i can take pics of my kithcen too...

    1. Wow! Thats awesome. I would love to see pictures of your kitchen. It will be cool to see what the finished product will look like.

  3. Ali certainly did a great job helping you decide what to use for the flooring. The tiles for the bathroom were a perfect match. The color is neither too light nor too dark. It’s definitely refreshing to the eyes. And the tile design for the listello is just wonderful! It would help make the color pop out more.
