That's pretty much our situation too. I think we've settled on flooring and formica but fabric has too many choices. Paralyzed by a plethora of possibilities.

Well, dang, Stephen, if I had known you were having problems I could have sent you all the swatches that I decided not to go with. Then you would have had even MORE to wade through.

Yeah, I had a lot of 'em.

Thanks, Laura but we have swatches up the wazoo already. Trying to settle on 2 or 3 to buy a yard each of and then make the final choice. Then I will get my sister to make throw pillows of the yard samples.

Good luck!

I found it to be a *bit* easier to choose by comparing them against the flooring and formica samples I have (which we decided on before the fabric). Just a bit. A tiny bit.

Good idea on the throw pillows.

I went with factory upholstery, Formica and flooring. No stress at all.

I too found the stock factory floor and upholstery to be fine, but changed the trim from white to brown made a world of difference.

I think the stock flooring is just fine. Besides so little of it shows by time I've got rug runners and floor mats inside. It was one thing I decided I change later if I wished. Two years later, I'm still good with it.

What is the brand of fabric used by Escape? Is the Sunbrella which so many people use a superior fabric? Is seems to be very expensive.

Vinyl floor. My understanding is that I can use a much higher quality vinyl if I use this option.

I only have 11 1/2 more months of waiting

Donna,
Those peppercorn mats still working for you? If you look closely in post#18 you will see a new set on top of one of my bins.
