Other Home Improvement Ideas

  • How you and your family live and use your home is the most significant factor in choosing flooring. If your family has heavy traffic, pets, kids, and is very active – plush carpet will not be ideal.  Heavy traffic areas should consider resilient flooring, such as ceramic tile or wood flooring. 

  • If your home has minimal traffic, and you enjoy having softness underfoot, carpeting or area rugs over wood flooring may be ideal for your home. 

  • Flooring that is at the entry or foyer of your home should have a “wow” factor, but be durable to outdoor elements. For kitchens, living rooms and bathrooms look for tile, wood or stone flooring options . Hot trends now are wood grain tile flooring, this provides the look and feel of a wood surface with the durability of tile.

  • Finally, flooring is priced per square foot and can add up quickly. All flooring materials have ‘grades’ of quality so ask a professional explain your options and weigh the total cost of installation.
