Great tip on saving money when looking to replace that old, dusty carpet.

Recommend this article to your friends
My wife and I are in the process of remodeling our bedroom. We removed old furniture and realized that the 5yr old carpet should be replaced as well. We were thinking about installing hardwood flooring but, at $5 per sq. ft., we are looking at about $1,100 + installation.

A couple of years ago, we purchased laminate flooring for our living room from Lumber Liquidators. We were skeptical at first, but decided to give it a shot. 2 years later, the floor still looks great and, even though we have 3 kids and a German Shepherd, it’s scratch free.

Here is what Lumber Liquidators website says about laminate flooring:

Easy to install, laminate comes in an array of colors, grades - and even handscraped for that rustic look. It's fiber core board with a photo on top. It's also very scratch-resistant and great for those who are tough on floors.

So, at about $2 per sq ft, we are going with laminate. Not only do we save over $600 in materials but, since the floor is so easy to install, we will save a ton of money as I will install it myself.

I strongly recommend that anyone who is thinking about floor remodeling explores laminate as an alternative to hardwood.
