Re: RE: More kitchen pics

Hi Sally, Not meaning to contradict you but laminate flooring is not all that great with pets or aging adults. It is very slippery. If you put any area rugs down make sure to use the rug/carpet gripper material underneath. Yanita yanita, thanks! that is what i was told by an installer too. we have ...

will, it looks great!!
what kind of flooring do you have in the kitchen? i was looking at wood laminate ( snap together ) but maybe vinyl would be better??
i have a pretty big greyhound. i dont want something that scratches easily.
