Along the coast of Southern California, between the boat-laden Dana Point community and Oceanside’s classic beach community, exists the city of San Clemente. “The Spanish Village by the Sea,” as it’s commonly referred to, is the backdrop for this beautiful condo renovation.


Our team connected with Cyd, the owner of this 980 square foot condo, early in the year as she was beginning her condo renovation. Cyd’s first step in the process was research, and rightly so! There are thousands of colors in the flooring market and dozens upon dozens of materials available. She researched and sampled wood grain tile, bamboo, hardwood, laminate and vinyl. After comparing color, price and texture, vinyl flooring came out the clear winner for her project due to its affordability and durability.

To create the minimalist, modern-rustic style of her home, Cyd chose GoHaus Castello vinyl plank flooring to cover the floor plan throughout. When asked whether she had concerns about buying flooring online, she states, “no concerns due to the quick reply to our inquiry and speedy delivery of requested floor samples from GoHaus.”

“We were inspired by our international travels and loved the idea of combining rustic and metropolitan elements.”

Not only were we able to provide Cyd with a flooring material suitable for her home, but we also were able to introduce her to our GoHaus Installer Network. Through this program, we connected Cyd with certified installer Turnaround Solutions. They went to Cyd’s condo, measured her space, and provided a quote shortly after the visit. Cyd quickly gathered some competitive bids from other installers in her area, but in the end she was most comfortable with the team at Turnaround Solutions.

Pro Tip: Take a note out of Cyd’s playbook and get competitive bids from other installers. As a general rule of thumb, do your due diligence and research quality of product, price, and reputable installers. Doing this ensures that you are most comfortable with your product and end result.

This project came to a close at the start of November, and as you can see the final design brings to life the modern-rustic style Cyd was hoping to achieve. Cyd’s advice to others planning a renovation:

“Always consider adding a few days as “cushion” to the planned project timeline and extra material to account for unforeseen setbacks. Oftentimes potential flaws are detected days after a project’s completion. It’s best to compile a list within the first week post installation and share with the contractor for further assessment so potential discrepancies are addressed and adjustments are reflected accordingly on the invoice.”
