The Ikea stuff looks nice but the construction is pretty cheap... The laminate is not nearly as nice as Armstrong or Pergo. It is also much harder to lay then Pergo. The pieces do not fit as neatly and perfectly together as we are used to. Many of the pieces needed fiddling with to get them to fit right. Oh well... it was less then half the cost:
At least the room is a rectangle so there weren't too many cuts:
Voila! My studio has a floor!
While we lay the floor of the studio, the carpet guys laid the carpet. Unfortunately, after it was in, they noticed that the pieces of carpet did not match up in color -- the whole roll had dye issues. ARGH!
They are back this week to put in a different carpet. Fingers crossed.
