Barndominium DIY Flooring


{“This blog post is sponsored by Select Surfaces and reflects my personal views and opinions on the products.”}


Flooring is the largest scale of surface in your home and picking the best type of flooring for your space depends on your budget, lifestyle and personal preference.


When we decided to self-build our barndominimum, we knew we wanted a quality flooring that could withstand the test of time! We loved the look of wood and wanted a product that was durable-with kids, pets and everyday life messes!  

There are so many choices when it comes to flooring: concrete, ceramic tile, hardwood, vinyl, engineered wood, laminate and more!


When we saw the Spill Defense Collection of flooring from Select Surfaces, at Sam’s Club, we were sold! The laminate planks in the Spill Defense Collection have a tighter seal, than regular laminates, making it spill resistant for up to 24 hours!! Perfect for families with kids and pets! The laminate planks also are low VOC’s and responsibly sourced from certified forests. REENGUARD Gold Certified to ensure healthy indoor air quality  Perfect for our family! We try to live as chemical free as we can!


The color choices are all beautiful which means there is something for everyone’s style! Our whole family fell in love with the Barnwood color!! Barnwood is a medium-toned wood color, with natural looking shade variations for an authentic barnwood look. Each plank also has natural looking texture and realistic saw marks that further lend to the authentic barnwood look. Everyone that visits our home, loves the flooring and asks if its real barn wood!



Before installing, we checked out the installation guide which is available on the Select Surface website Installation is SUPER easy!


Each plank comes with the foam backer attached- which means one less thing to install! Select Surface Flooring has an easy to install Speedloc system- no special tools needed to install it.

Just line up the tongue and groove portions and click, jiggle-wiggle into place. All you need to do is make cuts as needed to fit your space.



For the installation in our barndominium, we followed the steps below.

  • • Cleaned sub-flooring .
  • • Added baseboards .
  • • Painted & caulked baseboards.
  • • Install flooring per manufacturer’s instructions.
  • •Installed transition strips.




The Spill Defense Collection is easy, breezy to clean too! You can use a Norwex mop or a vacuum with a soft bristle brush attachment or a broom!


Select Surfaces has beautiful flooring with a warranty to stand behind their product! The Spill Defense Collection comes with a limited lifetime warranty for residential use.

It’s designed to resist fading from sunlight and UV rays. It also will resist moisture for up to 24 hours and is designed to not stain or wear through. The seams are also designed to not unlock under normal use conditions. I was surprised at how hard it is to scratch the flooring so it’s super durable for our family!
