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.

Maximize Your Living Room Space

For many people, living room space just never seems enough especially in urban centers where homes are quite small. If you do endeavour a relocation to such a place, where space is rare and you have to use it to its maximum capacity, then you have some homework to do. In this article I’m going to show you 5 tricks how to maximize your living room space, so check them out and get your inspiration. If you use these tricks, however, you can maximize your living room space even without having to carry out property renovation to create more space. That, or just call the moving company and find yourself a better flat or house for the movers to take you to.

1- Use vertical storage: Storage space that goes upwards will ensure that you can store much more. Adding vertical shelves means you can store more in a particular area. And moving items about will be much easier when you can actually stand in front of the stands. There are many DIY tricks you can make use of, so go online and see how many cool types of vertical storage you can pick up.

2- Have built in storage: When carrying out home renovation, you may want to consider installing shelves that are built within the wall. This frees up more space for other items like furniture. Or after the house moving and relocation you can keep the boxes and make the best out of them and add layered storage.

3- Fold away furniture: Fold away furniture offer the opportunity to use the same space for different things just by folding the furniture. Think about also a combination between built in and folding furniture – that way you can have whole dining tables which you can pull from out of the wall, or unfold from a high counter.

4- Corner furniture: Maximize the space by having furniture that fit into the corners. This is stylish but it will also free up more space. Corners should not always be used to stash things you couldn’t find a place for after the removals services are done. Use them practically and make the most out of them.

5- Transformer Furniture: Furniture with built-in storage can maximize space. A coffee table that can transform into a raised desk and has drawers is a great way to save space for more stuff. And call your moving company for a furniture removals job if you have any extra furniture you don’t need – every piece of space you can get will be a plus, so make use however you can.

Dining Room Furniture

When it comes to selecting your dining room furniture, there are certain considerations to make. Just like other types of furniture, you will have to decide if you want contemporary dining room furniture or more rustic looking sets. However, you also have to consider the size, color and a number of other factors to ensure you get the right furniture for your space. Whether buying from a hometown supplier or an Online home decor store, you will have to put some time into researching your options. Some helpful guidelines for selecting your dining room furniture are highlighted here.

What Purpose Will It Serve?

When you begin looking at furniture for your dining room, you need to determine if it will have more than one purpose. For example, will you host large events and smaller family meals? If you are planning to have an event with up to 15 guests, you need to ensure you select a table and chairs that can accommodate this many people. You also need to consider if there will be another activities going on in the room. When you consider all of this, you will be able to determine what size furniture you actually need.

What is the Room Size

While large dining furniture is ideal for big parties, you have to ensure that your actual dining space can accommodate this furniture. This means that you need to take the measurements so you know what will, and what will not, fit in the space.

Room Shape

Typically, the shape of your dining room will be mimicked in the shape of the table you purchase. Try not to purchase too many additional pieces of furniture or decorations besides the dining room table or the space will begin to appear cluttered. If you have a smaller room, you will likely be suited by a small rectangular or oval table and a larger room will be suited by a rectangular table.


If you have young children or plan to host a number of parties, then you should look for a stain resistant, easy to clean table that is durable and not easily damaged. If you do not plan to use the space much, such as for a formal dining area, this may be the ideal space for more delicate furniture.

When you use the considerations here, you will be able to find the ideal dining furniture for your space. You should never just make a purchase based on what you like, as it may not work with the space or room that you have.

By taking the time to weigh these different factors, you will be able to find the right dining room furniture with ease.
