New Allure flooring in our Berkshire

So I finally decided to rip out the carpet in our Berkshire (and most of the linoleum) to include the bedroom. The carpet was just not working with our two dogs - we could never keep it looking good. We decided on the Allure flooring material - the adhesive style, not the snap together. Getting the old carpet out was a job. Literally thousands of staples. The linoleum in the kitchen came out with little effort. The worst area was the bedroom - as I wanted the carpet out from under the bed also. Putting the new Allure down was not difficult, just time consuming. Once it goes together, you have mere seconds to make adjustments. I don't know how many pieces I ended up ruining because I tried to reposition them. I added new floor registers to match the brushed nickel in the coach and had a new piece of carpet cut for the dining room slide with enough left over to make a custom floor mat for the drivers/passenger area. Totally changed the stairs, no carpet - added the Allure and new stair treads. A weeks worth of work - and I'm very pleased. The slides ride well above the flooring as it's 1/3 the thickness of the snap-together style.

Thanks davel1971, CampinCajun, DBT803 and Wiscampsin. We really liked the end result - and it really seemed to "open" the unit up.

Thanks - and we're finding a "swifer" mop makes quick work of cleaning up at the end of the day!
