Few aspects of your home will make more of an impression than your floors. Often, it’s the first thing people see when entering a home. The right type of flooring can easily set the tone of an interior space. Wood flooring often infuses a room with warmth, while carpet color can make an impression, and tile can be selected to fulfill a design aesthetic. Consider some of the points below when selecting new floors for your home.
Flooring is the one aspect of your home that will receive the most use. Especially in high foot traffic areas, like entryways, mudrooms, stairs and hallways, you want to be sure you use durable materials. Tile, carpet tiles and wood are all good options for more durable choices. Cork and bamboo are newer choices known for their durability and are also considered sustainable and eco-friendly.
Obviously, different types of flooring are available at different price points. Your choice of floor materials, when in the midst of home building or redecorating, will probably depend more on cost than any other factor. Unless of course, you have a bottomless piggy bank. There’s nothing wrong with choosing a more expensive floor type, especially if it will have less traffic, increasing the chances of it lasting longer. Selecting new floors is fun and cost efficient.
Whether you’re looking for a bold color, a bold design or the ability to change either one, there is a type of flooring that fits your design aesthetic. However, it’s important to remember that flooring is fairly permanent. You want to be sure it’s something you can live with for at least a decade. You might find the novelty of a bright color wears off quickly. So think long-term.
Flooring is a huge investment whether its part of a remodel or a new home build. Don’t hesitate to ask for samples so that you can try out the look of hardwood, carpet or tile before making a final decision.
