There are many trends in the floor covering industry from color and size to different textures. Carpet comes in so many varieties it can be overwhelming. The same hold true for discount hardwood flooring, laminates, stone, ceramic and vinyl flooring. So how do you get started?
Well take a deep breath and then answer some basic questions about the area you wish to purchase a new floor for. Think about how the room is used most. Is it a heavy traffic area with a lot of activity? Does the room have lots of natural light? Does the room stand-alone or does it flow into other rooms? Is the feel of the room a casual feel or more formal feel? Do you entertain frequently? Does the room open to the outside? Are you selling your home in the immediate future? Are you planning on living in your home for a while? What do you want people to notice when they first enter a room?
Understanding your expectations of the room will help you decide on what type of flooring you would like to purchase. It will help you narrow your decisions as to color, size and textures. The next blog will go into specific trends for different flooring types.
In the meantime answer the above questions and you will get a great idea of what type of flooring you would like in your home. Accordingly, make sure you turn to a retailer that offers large stock selection of carpet rolls and tile laminates such as Carpet Depot which will be able to provide for your specific needs.
