Flooring Tips

Flooring literally recedes into the background when you’re talking about home decor vs home improvement. Since it’s the background, it forms the base that everything else is built on, and becomes instrumental in bringing the rest of your home to life. This is why it’s imperative that you select the right kind of flooring. Here are a few flooring tips that will help you choose well and make the right decision for your home.

  • Floor Based On The Space

Your flooring choice depends on the space and the traffic it is going to see on an average day.

For your kitchen flooring, you need a surface that is hard enough to withstand constant use, easy to clean, and spill-resistant: Porcelain tiles or Ceramic tiles, for example, are better choices for this since they don’t stain as easily.

If you want to infuse some energy into your bedroom, go for tiles in warmer and more cheerful colors. For a tranquil atmosphere, cool, soothing colors are more suitable. Wooden or laminate flooring is also a great option if you want that striking, luxurious look.

While the style and color of your bathroom tiles and kitchen tiles depend entirely on the look you’re going for, remember that they should be slip-free and water-resistant. Ceramic tiles are harder and denser. Glazed or glass tiles are easy to install and cheaper to replace.

  • Make A Style Statement

Your flooring should complement your furniture, upholstery, and walls. Do not jump to decisions while choosing your floor surface. Visit showrooms and bring home samples to see if they match with your interiors.

You should also match the various flooring choices throughout your home with each other to make sure they transition without looking jarring.

You don’t redo your floors as often as you paint your walls or change rugs and throws. Picking more neutral colors for your flooring will give you more color choices when redoing other aspects of your home.

  • It’s All About The Value

Different flooring choices have different prices and with laminate flooring or hardwood flooring (wood flooring) option for your floor may start as low as $1 per square foot (that’s very cheap), and higher-end marble tiles or travertine tiles could cost you up to $10 for the same area.

Set a budget and measure the area you intend to floor before you go shopping. This will give you an estimate of how much it’ll cost based on the type of flooring you choose.

With so many flooring options available today, you need to choose carefully. If you’re unsure about how to go about this before you start your home renovation, you can always visit tile stores like TileMarkets to give yourself a choice selection of the best flooring, also keep in mind if you do end up selling your home with a real estate agent these upgrade will provide you best value and attract lots of home buyers.
