MOVING! City to Suburbs, with home renovation ahead

source

UPDATE: Found lots of cool tile and flooring on my visit to Floor & Decor!

After much deliberation, driving around, and wistful sighing, we've decided to move out of the city.

I know! I can't believe it, either. Yes, our current place is great, but living on the third floor in a hipster enclave doesn't lend itself well to life with a toddler. We seriously considered several other city neighborhoods, but finally realized that for what we want, Mr. SCS could commute either 30 minutes on the L or 30 minutes on Metra, where we could have more space and less crime and— you know what? I can't even listen to myself anymore. I've sold out for a lawn and fresh air.

Anyway. While I'm decidedly torn about this major life decision, I am sort of excited/dreading the home renovation projects in our future. Excited because it's fun to be creative, dreading because there's always the debate about hiring a pro versus DIY. So, I'm really happy to be teaming up with ChicagonistaLIVE again, this time for a segment called "Creating an Atmosphere of Ease and Comfort in your Home" at the Floor & Decor showroom in Skokie.

sourceI wasn't previously familiar with Floor & Decor, but have since learned that they have an enormous selection of ceramic, stone, tile, wood, and laminate flooring, as well as various tools and accessories, sourced directly from manufacturers around the world. In addition to the Skokie location, they have stores in Aurora, Arlington Heights and Lombard, plus 40 more around the country.

Are you in need of some renovation tips, too? Follow #ChicagonistaLIVE this Tuesday September 14 from 2-3pm CDT. You can also watch live at http://www.ChicagonistaLIVE.com
