Flooring is the Main Character!

A new floor can be a big investment, so you want a surface that will last for years. Your floor choice is about balancing your needs with your style. Here are some considerations to help you pick.

What’s Your Style  What are the colors and patterns you like? Think about which floor textures appeal to you: the rich grain of hardwood, thick carpet or the clean lines of tile. Unless you plan on redecorating on the entire room, you’ll want to choose floors that complement the furniture and accessories you have now.

Lifestyle and Needs   Think about how you use the room. Do you have “Wreck it Ralphs” living within your home? Do you have pets who track mud into the front hall? If so, you will want to choose flooring that will be able to withstand the wear and tear your family’s daily activities.

Know the Budget  Calculate your budget. Keep in mind that along with the cost of the floor material, you may need to incorporate the cost of underlayment, delivery, and installation, as well as removal and disposal of your existing floor. Lastly there could be additional materials such as baseboards, stains, or adhesives needed that will have a cost.

There are 4 really good reasons on why choosing the right flooring is important to your interior design:

  1. Floors are the largest design surface of your room
  2. They are the first thing people see when they walk in
  3. They are the foundation for your entire design
  4. Floors are the most costly to replace down the road
