Waterproof Hardwood Flooring Reveal
It’s reveal day! I’m sharing our whole beach condo and our beautiful new waterproof hardwood flooring.
This post is sponsored by Raintree Floors. I received “Raintree Floors” flooring products free of charge to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
Today is the day. I’m sharing our beautiful Raintree Floors waterproof hardwood flooring.
I have so been looking forward to being able to share this with you. This is the icing on the cake and the star of the show. (well, we all know Ryder takes that spot…but the floor is really going to be the star today ;) )
As you know, we’ve been doing a major remodel on our beach condo. One of the biggest components of that was new flooring.
And I am thrilled to say we have marked that one off the list!
Not sure what I’m talking about?
Hop on over and read these two posts to catch up:
If you’ve been following along, you’ve seen all the things we’ve been doing at the condo. I will be doing a full reveal at some point in the future. I have lots of decorating to finish up before then. (plus a kitchen remodel too…that’s next)
But today I want to share the whole condo and our beautiful new floors.
Waterproof Hardwood Flooring Reveal
We chose Egret from the Laguna Vibes Collection.
It’s a gorgeous light-colored wood which is perfect for the look I was going for in our beach condo.
Light, bright, and airy with a relaxed coastal feel.
Want to get 2 FREE samples so you can touch, hold, feel, and see it in person too?
Check them out right >>> here.
Egret goes beautifully with our aqua colored accents, neutral tones, and all our varied textures, baskets, etc.
And since it is natural hardwood, there are no two alike anywhere. I just love that!
The natural variations add to the beauty of this flooring.
We still have a few things to finish up (crown molding, painting a few things, trim work, etc.) but it’s mostly “done”.
Oh…and the kitchen remodel which we hope to begin tackling after the holidays. We’ll see! haha
We are putting a ceiling fan in here and moving this light over the dining table. (which we have yet to find…we may make one)
But aren’t these floors just stunning?
We are thrilled with them.
Waterproof is a huge bonus too! Especially being at the beach.
And since water is not a problem we used them all the way throughout our condo, even in the bathroom.
And on into the “bunk room” which no longer has bunks. What in the world do we call this little room now?
Trundle room doesn’t have the same ring to it! ha!
BUNK ROOM (aka ??)
This is the coolest little bed, by the way. It opens up into a large bed.
I’ll have more details/photos on it in the big reveal. (if you follow along on Instagram you may have seen it in action last weekend when we were assembling it)
Like I mentioned, the kitchen is still waiting for its much-needed makeover. (new appliances, new cabinets, new backsplash, and new countertop)
The hanging light is going too…recessed in its place.
Do you remember that Outer Banks sign I made several years back?? I made it because we have wanted to purchase something down in the OBX for many years.
I tucked it away until we did.
So excited to be able to put it up on the wall here soon!
Ryder trying to steal the show again.
And that floor…
All the hearts for both.
Ryder says thanks for coming to visit…see you later!
Don’t forget! You can get free samples to check out this flooring too.

The floors are beautiful, great choice!
What a blessing to have a condo by the beach! Enjoy your beautiful space!
Thank you, Sandra! :) xoxo
Wow, the condo looks GREAT!! LOVE the floors! Wonderful job! I can’t wait to see what you do with the kitchen.
Give Ryder some ear rubs and pets for me!!
Thanks, Christina! We love them and I can NOT wait to get to the kitchen! Well, sort of…I need a break right now!! lol And yes, of course, I most certainly will! xoxo
I love the photos of the condo with Ryder in them.. Condo is looking great! xoxo, Aunt Jo
Thank you, Aunt Jo!! He steals the show every time!! :) xoxo
No wonder you’re so excited. The floors are beautiful. The large planks are perfect. And just think, all you’ll need is a swiffer! Make sure you partner with them next.(just sayin) I have to admit, Ryder, the floors edged you out by a “nose”! Your nose is s still cuter though. (Couldn’t resist)Can’t wait to see the kitchen. There are so many options out there now so have fun choosing. Looking forward to the big reveal and the Christmas posts.
Aw, thanks so much, Kathy!! They are even more gorgeous in person. We are really happy with them and yes, we love the large planks! Haha!! Love it.
And yes, we are excited to get to the kitchen but are looking forward to a little break in the meantime. I can’t wait to revisit some of my older favorite Christmas posts with you all! Happy weekend to you! xoxo
Floors turned out very nice, looking forward to seeing the kitchen remodel. Suggestion name for your bunk room Tranquility…
Aw, that’s perfect, Christina! Does feel that way in there. :) xoxo
Just gorgeous!! Those floors are amazing! XOXO
Thanks so much, Christy! xoxo
Looks great! I would make the same choices!
I have been to OBX one time years ago. That place gets into your heart and you don’t forget it. Good for you to have a place there and I love the sign you made!
Hi Sue! Thank you!
Yes, it really does. Hope you can make it back sometime! :) xoxo
The floors are absolutely stunning. So worth the wait.Definitely very “beachy”. Beautiful place to relax and looks like handsome Ryder agrees.
Thank you, Teresa! Yes, very! And yay, I’m so glad you think so, that is exactly the look I was going for..beachy relaxing. :) xoxo
I absolutely love your home. Do you mind sharing where your shower curtain came from? Merry Christmas!
Thank you so much, Sue. :) I have no idea where the shower curtain came from unfortunately, since it was here when we bought the condo. (and I kept it because I also loved it! :) ) Maybe Target? Some of the other things they bought to stage it were from there so maybe? Merry Christmas to you as well! xoxo
Wow! The floors look stunning! Love everything you have done so far! Can’t wait until the kitchen is done too!
Thank you, Julie! I can’t wait for that either!! :) xoxo
What an amazing pick, the floors go well with your decor. Have to love when the plan comes together! Looking forward to the kitchen re-do! Congrats!
Thank you, Vicki! I’m so glad you think so! I’ve very happy with how it is looking too. :) And yes, you’ve got that right because it doesn’t always! haha We are excited to get started on the kitchen …but looking forward to a nice break first. Have a great weekend! xoxo
Outstanding choice for the floor! It looks so right for a beach house! Love seeing Ryder! He is so cute! Your condo is turning out beautifully and I am sure you and your husband are proud of the work you have done to make it yours! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks, Sue! Yay!! That’s what I was going for so glad to hear you think so too. Aw, thanks, he’s the sweetest and I love sharing him with you all. :) xoxo
Wow! They’re just gorgeous! Waterproof hardwood- that’s a game changer. Congrats on this beautiful renovation!
Thank you, Bre! And yes, it sure is! :) xo
It’s looking so good, Nancy! Love the bed nook now. Wishing you many happy years at the beach.
Thanks, Marcie! The little bed nook…so much better than with bunks! The bunks took over the small room. Maybe we’ll call it the bed nook room! ;) Have a great weekend. xoxo
Just beautiful! Great choice for the flooring! My daughter lived in Morehead City, NC for a couple years and we loved visiting there, even with the humidity!
Thank you! And yes, plenty of that humidity around there (and here in VA where we live too!) ;) xo
The floors (and Ryder of course!) are stunning. Lots of hard work, but look at the reward! Enjoy every moment in your beautiful beach condo.
Thank you, Deanna! Yes, it was a lot of work to get it ready for the floors…and to that point. But the floors certainly are a sweet reward! Have a great weekend! xo
It is absolutely fabulous. Your beach place is really amazing – the flooring takes it such a high level!
Thanks so much, Michele! I think so too! Takes it right on up a notch or two. :) xoxo
It looks great! I love the color!
Thanks so much, Rose! We are so happy with the lighter color here. :) xo
Thank you, Vicki! Have a wonderful weekend! xo
They are stunning, Nancy!
Thank you, Larissa!! xo
Love the flooring concept. It’s not available in the NE, though. Maybe the company will branch out.
Names for that space? Snooze room, reading nook, snooze nook, zzz alcove, relaxed recess, contemplative corner, reading retreat, healing hideaway…
Yes, hopefully so! Thank you, Robin! xo
Hi Nancy! Love this post! We are in the process of purchasing some Raintree floors in Laguna Vibes Egret as well. I’ve been searching high and low to find reviews of the flooring but because it is so new, the reviews are hard to come by. The pictures on the Raintree site make Egret look a little green but in your pictures it strikes the perfect, relaxing, beachy vibe I’m looking for. Would you say the pictures on Raintree are a bit off from what you got in person (your photos are gorgeous!) Just want to be sure the tone like what you’ve pictured, in person :) Also we have three young kids and usually have a large Irish Wolfhound (just lost our sweet, big guy last year 💔 but hope to get another pup in the coming years.) Would you mind weighing in on how the flooring handles Ryder with hiding hair, scratches, etc? Do you find it to be durable and forgiving? Thank you SO much, in advance, for any insight you can offer now that you’ve lived on the floors for a couple months. Warmly, Carli
Hi Carli! Oh, how exciting! You will love it! We sure do.
Now as to the subject of color and how it looks on their site. 100% mine does not look like what shows on their site. I wasn’t even looking at that one originally because I thought it might have a greenish hue. (which mine does not at all) I would call it a perfectly “bleached” looking wood with variations in depth of color. The pictures of my floors here are about as close to real-life as you can get. I tried to take them so that they were as such. All-natural lighting, etc. If you like what you see here, you will like them in person. My photos are pretty accurate.
I’m sorry to hear about your sweet pup. That’s so hard, I well know!
They seem to be holding up very well in relation to our pup and just anything. (we are still in construction mode over there so tools and such!) I would see if you can see a sample or have one sent to you through my link in this post. (if you haven’t already, that is) Good luck with your new flooring! Let me know if you have any other questions, I’d be happy to help! xo
Thank you soooo much for this incredibly thorough reply! You’ve answered my questions very well. Perfectly bleached with tone and texture is just what I’m after. We are covering up shiny, espresso maple hardwood (a nightmare with kids and pups 😱) and I can’t wait for the lighter, more forgiving floors. Your photos are perfect so I’m so glad to hear you feel they are true to real life. I actually got a sample of the egret from our local flooring store, and in person they are wonderful. It was just the website photos that threw me off. So seeing your photos and how they match the sample I had in my home gives me great reassurance! That said my local flooring company didn’t have many testimonials to give me about the flooring since it’s so new. So I will be sure to pass along your blog posts so they can share them with future customers. I feel like you did an excellent job of showcasing the product and explaining its benefits. I’ll have to share a picture once they’re installed at our place :) Thank you again, sincerely. And as for our sweet Lincoln, thanks for your kind words. Dog lovers understand ❤️💔. All the best to you and your family!
You are so very welcome, Carli! And oh yes, I hear you on the dark flooring!! For our beach condo, I knew I wanted something light, bright, and airy and this fit the bill! Oh good, so glad you got a sample in hand. That is the best way to go. And yes, I would love for you to pass along my site for others to learn about the flooring. Oh yes, dog lovers understand completely! I’m so sorry about your sweet Lincoln. It’s so hard. Our sweet girl before Ryder was with us for 12+ years and “grew” up with our kids and although I’ve had other dogs who have passed over the years, for some reason I took the loss of her especially hard. I even wrote a post just for her (and created a video which was hosted on a now closed site…will have to create another), here. Anyway, I wish you the best of luck with the flooring, and yes, please share when it’s done, I would love to see it! xo
Totally get it! These sweet pups truly become a member of the family. Sorry to hear about your girl 💔
We just put the down payment on the floors yesterday and expect to have them installed within a month or so. I will definitely send some pictures when they’re finished! Can’t thank you enough for your help. I have given your blog post and website to our local flooring store to share with customers who are interested in Raintree in the future 💞
Thank you, Carli. :)
And that’s great to hear! Thank you so much for sharing my site with them, I really appreciate it and am so glad to help as well. Please do stay in touch, I’d love to see your floors when they are done! xo
Are these still holding up well?
Most definitely so!! We adore them and are so happy we were able to put these in. Although I love the flooring we have in our main home, I SO wish we had these floors in here too! Highly recommend!
