Is it time to give that tired kitchen floor a face lift? Are you looking for just right finishing touch for your new living room? The floor you choose can brighten a dark room, make a small one appear larger, or set mood and tone for rest of your decorating. There are so many flooring options available on market these days that you're biggest problem will be deciding which floor you like best! Here are a few suggestions to ease your decision process.
With all those choices available, how do you decide what type of floor fits your lifestyle and design sense best? There are a number of factors to consider, including mood you want to set, style and colors of your furnishings, and what room will be used for. The perfect floor for your work-in kitchen may be too dark for your bright and airy living room, and floor that you love for your living room could be too formal or too delicate for your back patio. Rest assured though, that there is a perfect choice for every room in your home.
Things To Consider When Choosing a Floor
How much traffic will floor get?
The amount and type of traffic that your room will see should be one of largest deciding factors in kind of floor that you choose. A family room floor with a ping-pong table and busy, active life needs a floor that will stand up to lots of foot traffic and occasional spill. In addition, you want a floor that won't show wear, will be comfortable underfoot, and easy to care for. Vinyl floor tiles or linoleum might be your best choice there, though a good, durable wood laminate floor might do well, as well.
