Kitchen Remodel Part 1: Flooring

This is part one in a series remodeling my kitchen. My original laminate flooring was beginning to look rough and I didn’t like the color when I bought the house. The new flooring is a vinyl plank flooring which should be more durable and hold up better to the moisture experienced in a kitchen.

Later on in part two I will be building shaker style doors to replace the existing cabinet doors. The doors and cabinet boxes will also be painted a lighter gray color. This may take some time, since I have to build 30 some odd doors, so I wouldn’t expect the next video in this series for a few months.

Flooring I used was Shaw Acropolic Athena Acacia:

If you have read this far, thank you, I am still getting the hang of editing and pace of these videos. I don’t want them too be too short and I don’t want to get bogged down with details and be too long. Other YouTubers can do a much better job explaining things than I can. I will try to make some more 3d printing videos as projects come up.

    i cant believe you even spent the time editing the video to this extreme after all the work of remodeling your house, I never would have the time to do both, great job

    I thought we would have to pull up our old flooring but you just put yours on top of it. Was there some factor that helped you make that decision? Thank you! 🙂

    how long did that take you?

  5. George Washington on July 7, 2020 at 3:55 pm

    WELL DONE !

    Put cardboard under the oven and frig, between feet and the floor, so it doesn’t mark up the floor. when you slide them.

    Nice video! Love the editing! How did you install the floor boards around your kitchen cabinets? Did you undercut the kitchen cabinets, put the board flush against it, or leave a small gap for expansion/contraction? THanks!!

    How’s the flooring lasting

  9. Ben 1 on July 7, 2020 at 3:59 pm

    Why didn’t you just sand and stain the existing floor?

    My penis is so hard!

  11. Curt Wrigley on July 7, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Why would you put imitation wood over real wood?

  12. Kirk Cabral on July 7, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    Cool video. I need a little more help/explanation.

  13. Zara Rodriguez on July 7, 2020 at 4:08 pm

  19. S Han on July 7, 2020 at 4:14 pm

    how does old laminate get to expand if you put some other floor on top??

  20. MidCali831 on July 7, 2020 at 4:16 pm

    part 2?

  21. Mr Fly on July 7, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    Do you need to apply any adhesive or some type of glue to keep the vinyl floor stuck down? THanks! great video!

  22. Frank Meadows on July 7, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    Awesome video

  23. Matt on July 7, 2020 at 4:19 pm

  24. Alan Calvert on July 7, 2020 at 4:22 pm

    Great Vid! I especially enjoyed the stop action. Good job.

  25. Zach Katona on July 7, 2020 at 4:23 pm

    Nice video, looking to do same type of project. Did you end of putting down the new flooring where the fridge sits? I saw you did for oven. I wasn’t sure if you did for fridge? What type of trim did you use around cabinets?

  26. Lucy Vue on July 7, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    Very helpful video! Love the bulbasaur ❤️

  27. Dawn Lewis on July 7, 2020 at 4:32 pm

  29. * Han on July 7, 2020 at 4:37 pm

    Good job

  30. Brendan C on July 7, 2020 at 4:38 pm

    Amazing video! You’ve inspired me to re-do my kitchen flooring as well. When I bought the place it had this hideous linoleum flooring… from 1979…

  31. Andy Kang on July 7, 2020 at 4:40 pm

    great job man~!

  32. bikephil on July 7, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    Nice camera work!

  33. perfection59 on July 7, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    First spend thousands on tools

  34. cowslane1 on July 7, 2020 at 4:43 pm

    Oh hell nooo. Haha I’m a videographer/ editor who’s currently remodeling, and the thought of doing stop motion throughout the process would give me nightmares. Glad you can handle both at once, but not many people could. Great job!
