Where to Start…

One of the most difficult parts of the flooring purchase process is knowing where to start. There are just so many products out there. How can you know which one is right for you? Well, here are a few tricks of the trade to help you along the way.


First, you should ask yourself how you use the room or rooms that will have the new flooring. What types of activities go on in that room? What is the traffic like? Do you have pets or children who will be using the area? Knowing the use and potential use of each area will help you in deciding which flooring will fit your family and lifestyles.

Secondly, you should start thinking about the space itself. What is the lighting like? What is the overall feel or style you want to achieve? Do you have a color scheme you are working with or is this a blank slate? Having a basic idea of what you want to achieve before you set out to the store will make the process much less overwhelming.

Finally, try to have a set budget in mind. It is so important to know what you have or want to spend on your home. That way you can find that perfect floor that fits you and your life.
