Flooring Choices and Design Tips
Your floor choice is about balancing your needs with your style. Here are some considerations to help you pick.Know Your Style. What colors and patterns do you like? Think about which floor textures appeal to you: the rich grain of hardwood, luxuriously thick carpet or the sleek lines of tile. And take into account your current décor, too. Unless you plan on redecorating on the entire room, you’ll want to choose floors that complement the furniture and accessories you have now.
Consider Your Lifestyle. Think about how you use the room. Are you an avid cook who spends hours standing at the stove? Then you may want to skip the tile, which can be uncomfortable to stand on for long periods. Do your kids leave puddles of water on the bathroom floor? You may want to go for that tile, which stands up to water. Do you have pets who track mud into the front hall? Think concrete, Your floor will need to be able to stand up to the wear and tear your family dishes out and accommodate your activities.
Crunch Numbers. Calculate your budget. Keep in mind that along with the cost of the floor material, you may need to incorporate the cost of delivery and installation, as well as removal and disposal of your previous flooring. Don’t forget to factor in any additional materials such as baseboards, stains, or adhesives.
