Flooring Ideas For the Empty Nest

As summer transitions into spring, kids are going off to college and leaving their parents at home with an empty nest. This can be a bittersweet time for the family, but taking some time to update your home with a new flooring project can be a way to make the transition easier.

The small amount of time you spend updating your flooring will pay off for years to come, and give your home an entirely new look and feel. Whether you install new flooring yourself or have it professionally-installed by our installation team, you’ll love the feeling adding new floors will give your home. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Classic Style Meets Modern Durability

Jabara’s has some exciting flooring styles available. One of the most striking and versatile lines is Mohawk® Havermill™ plank laminate flooring. This hand-scraped, deep-grained laminate is Floorscore® Certified for indoor air quality to give you a beautiful, healthy home.

Each of the 11 colors is a showstopper, from the old-time farmhouse charm of Antique Leather Maple to the unconventional Sunburst Walnut. The Do-It-Yourselfer will appreciate the ease of use: Havermill plank laminate flooring features Mohawk’s Uniclic® glueless locking technology, making installation easy enough for beginners.

Vintage Hardwood With a Modern Twist

If you prefer hardwood to laminate, you’ll love the eight colors of Mohawk® American Vintique™ hardwood flooring. This easy-care wood flooring is backed by a limited lifetime warranty, made in the USA and offers medium-hard oak and hard hickory varieties.

Canyon Brown Hickory gives you a modern dark flooring look with a hint of the time-tested floors of generations past. Treehouse Oak is a light, warm choice reminiscent of Grandma’s gleaming floors.
