First, we would try negotiating the price down for the flooring you like; see if you can get it closer to your budget. Sometimes there is a little wiggle room, especially when you are ordering such large quantities. If not, have you considered doing this tile that looks like wood? Not only is it more durable, but the cost is significantly less. There are also many colors to choose from so you can pick your variations. It looks pretty realistic. http://www.homedepot.com/p/MS-International-Redwood-Natural-6-in-x-24-in-Glazed-Porcelain-Floor-and-Wall-Tile-9-69-sq-ft-case-NREDWNAT6X24/203168463
If you don't like that, what about a reclaimed hemlock wood floor? I don't know the cost where you are located, but it may be worth looking into. Hope this helps! Best of luck.

Thanks for all the feedback.

To answer some of the questions, we do not want to do laminate since this is a historic home and it is also in Florida so laminate would not be the right choice due to humidity/moisture and resale.

The Du Chateau that we fell in love with is an engineered wood.

I have been scouring websites and flooring stores looking for a better price and while we have found some that almost work, we can't give up the search for this particular look.


The price I mentioned was for materials only! Installation is crazy too, but that's a whole other discussion!

Thank you again, I'll keep looking for input here.

For what it's worth, I just installed similar Du Chateau floors in my bedrooms. I loved the blue undertones that seemed impossible to find anywhere else. But my favorite thing about them is how they feel underfoot, sooo soft and inviting. They were definitely THE splurge of my remodel, but I haven't regretted it.

Very nice! I especially like what you did with the exterior. Are you planning to add a path of some sort to the front entrance? I think it would add even more to the already excellent exterior.

We would say no. While we understand why you want the shutters, your home looks properly proportioned and if you do shutters, things will start to feel cramped. Looks great as is - you should be a proud homeowner! Enjoy -Chelsea Construction

Now, I know this may come as a shock, but I'm going to vote for Yes to shutters. The article posted by decoenthusiaste doesn't necessarily explain why to avoid shutters, it merely explains how to avoid the PITFALLS of bad shutter selection and installation.

Your home is lovely, and while I don't know what it looked like before, the finished renovation is gorgeous and welcoming. I do agree that landscaping will add a bit more of interest to the front, as the new landscaping grows in, but the shutters will add additional character and definition to the home's curb appeal, as will the suggestion of larger lanterns, statement pieces, around the front door to frame the home.

That being said, the windows are a bit tricky. The two front downstairs ones are offset, which look nice but do not have enough space to put the properly sized shutters on each side of the windows. Fear not, we have a solution! Many folks use bi-fold installation options for the shutters, which allows for the properly sized shutters to be placed on one side of the window, without detracting from the impact of fully functional shutters. The top windows also face that issue because they are double windows and would also then need the bi-folds.

Rest assured that the bi-fold option is classic and is not merely a forced solution to an design. In fact, it is often a chosen option by designers and architects. There are two different types (well, really, as many as the imagination can come up with). One is the traditional (you can see the demonstration here)
and the other is the booking bi-fold installation


And here are examples of bi-folds in use. http://www.timberlane.com/profiles/homeowners/west-covina-ca/ http://www.timberlane.com/files/8613/6932/1089/hawaii.jpg

Thank you all for your input. We have decided to go with NO Shutters and are purchasing larger light fixtures. The landscaping is new and with growth should also help in giving us the desired look. Thanks for all your positive comments!

Some metal roofs can sound great in the rain, if that matters! But if you are looking for a break down, while shingles are more common, metal is a great alternative. They are usually lighter, last longer, and look nicer. However, it is more of an expense. If you can do it, we think you would be very pleased with a metal roof instead of asphalt shingles. -Chelsea Construction

Nice job! What do you think about tricking out the whole wall a bit, like this photo? I sent these to my sister, wondering if she wanted to do said-same. It's just a change in paint color and some easy-to-do fake board + batten. Might ramp up the feature wall you've got going. Whoops -- didn't mean to send it twice! Good luck!

So much of why we are replacing all these late 80s early 90s oak kitchens is because of the quality and the number of these kitchens that were built. Before that it seemed like so many houses had terrible white melamine. Quality is timeless, nice work.

I took the mirror off, but gave it away. Above the vanity is another project. A flea market medicine cabinet find that we painted and beefed up with chunky trim to make it look authentic to the house. Another person could simply have put it above the vanity. We could have put the mirror above the claw foot tub or used it anywhere on any wall, but I already have several vintage mirrors.

If all (potential) three bedrooms can access the new, smaller bathroom, we would say go with a laundry room. It makes life much easier and the function of your upstairs layout will feel so much better. Hope this helps!
