You’ve decided it’s time for a new floor, but now what? With so many options available it can be hard to narrow down your choices to just one. To make the decision process a little bit easier, we’ve put together this list of the three most important things to consider when beginning the hunt for new flooring.
Before you leave the house, take a look at the room your flooring will go in. What style is the room? What colour is it or will it be? What flooring do you have in it now? Knowing the answers to these questions will help you narrow down your options significantly. A single type of flooring won’t be the right fit for ever room, so you’ll be able to bring more focus to your search. For example, if the room has a more rustic feel, it might make sense to look at flooring with wider planks and a textured appearance.
Flooring isn’t “one size fits all”. Another important thing to consider is how much wear and tear the floor will receive. Does the room have a lot of traffic? Is there a chance for things to be spilled? Answering these questions will help you understand how durable the flooring your installing needs to be. For example, if the room will have a lot of traffic with ample chance of spills and things being dropped, laminate might be a more practical option than hardwood.
The great thing about the variety of flooring options today is that there are beautiful options for every budget. Before you get your heart set on a specific flooring, however, it’s important to first determine your budget. Knowing this before you head to the store will reduce the chance of you falling for something that is outside of your budget.
