Flooring 101: Learn how to choose the right type of flooring.

Picking flooring for your home should be one of the first choices you  make because it needs to go in before anything else. Consider it the most important choice because it sets the foundation for the overall look.

Color, texture and durability are very important.

Some of your choices are:

  • Hardwood
  • Laminate
  • Carpet
  • Vinyl
  • Tile

Hardwood: (If your budget allows it) I would definitely recommend hardwood floors. It’s durable and more importantly it adds value to your home. It’s also possible to get it prefinished (ready to install) or unfinished where you can stain it to your desired color.

Laminate: If you really want hardwood but you’re on a budget then laminate flooring is a great contender. It has the look or hardwood without the price tag.

Carpet: Carpet is great for rooms where comfort is important. Like, bedrooms and family rooms. Basically any room where you may spend any time lounging on the floor.
