We are always keeping our eyes open for some of the best stories on the web about home projects/renovations that feature Mohawk products and this lesson in laminate selection is a great one.
In this first installment, Jennifer details how she had to work with two very unfortunate surfaces, a chipped ceramic tile in the kitchen and a “peel-and-stick” tile in the living room, as she renovated a rental house for sale.
How would our DIY-heroine Jennifer solve this flooring dilemma? Check out her neat video below and watch for yourself:

When Jennifer removed the carpet from the bedrooms, she found that there were beautiful hardwood floors underneath that she wanted to refinish and capture the original beauty.
Jennifer’s dilemma was then deciding whether to match the flooring in the other areas or go with something different like carpet. She first decided to check out some Mohawk Laminate samples to see if she could in fact match the original wood floors.
With a tremendous amount of shades and finishes to choose from, Jennifer picked the Benton style in Cinnamon Spice to very closely match the wood found in the bedroom:
She also utilized a slight color variation for the hallway, kitchen, and living room, noting that the way light changes throughout a household will help transition the subtle color difference.
Ultimately, Jennifer felt that the Mohawk Laminate presented an excellent compromise in having real wood in the bedrooms and a product that looks and performs like natural hardwood in the high traffic areas. In addition to a gorgeous visual and great value, Mohawk Laminates will give Jennifer an incredibly easy installation process for the continuous floor she’s looking for.
Also, over time the Laminate will serve the home admirably with easy clean-up against spills and durable, scratch-resistant technology against wear-and-tear.
Jennifer, we think you are an inspiration! We can’t wait to see the progress and final results of your renovation. Laminates to the rescue once again!
