New Flooring in The Bedroom

Last week was a dfficult and wonderful time.  It was the first step in muliple stages of changing the flooring in my home.   When I purchased my home, it had like new wall to wall carpet which I hate. The first time I walked in the house I thought how nice it would look with wood-look tile. Tile is a cool surface in the hot climate of Florida and easy to maintain.  Unfortunately, I only had 6 days from closing to move from my rented condo to the house. I was doing good to have the interior painted before the move. You may not have noticed that I rarely show a photo of my floors. Nope, I like to imagine how prettier it all will be without the carpet. Besides not liking the color (blue), I know carpet is not a good option for someone with allergies.  Mike, my lawn guy and handyman, estimates I have about 10 pounds of sand in the rugs.  Central Florida’s soil is mostly sand. No matter how much you vacuum or even steam clean, you can’t get it out.  I choose a light wood look tile which reminds me of driftwood.  The tile is lighter than the photos.  I tried multiple times but cannot capture a more realistic photo.
