Last year about this time I was asking a friend what she was asking from her husband for Christmas. Her reply? New hardwood floors. She had this old carpet in her beautifully updated home and ALL she needed to complete her gorgeous space was the right flooring! I thought she was nuts, but when her husband had her choice of flooring installed one day while she was gone, she was thrilled! I came over not long after to take a look and I was AMAZED at how different her house looked. It was always a beautiful home, but I never knew what a difference flooring could make!
