The perfect style of flooring for your home

The Area

To begin with, there are a few things that need to be considered when shopping for new flooring.  First, what are the areas you are going to be flooring like?  In other words, what shape and size is the area you are going to install new flooring on.  Do the rooms have windows with bright light or are they dark with little or no light.

Lighter colored flooring with make rooms appear bigger than they are and will brighten up the dark rooms in your home.  Using a medium-toned wood will add warmth to cold rooms.  The best way to get a feel for how a certain flooring will look in your house is to stop by a professions flooring store and ask for samples.  Most flooring stores will let you take the samples home so that you can see how they look in certain areas at various times of the day.

Use of Room

Ultimately, what you are going to use the room for will help you decide what type of flooring to use.  The other thing to consider is the color of the furniture that you will use in the room.  Getting ideas from websites like Pinterest.com is a great way to see how certain types of flooring can be used in various different types of rooms.

Materials

When it comes to materials, you are only limited by your imagination.  From bamboo to stone and everything in between.  Wood is a very popular flooring choice these days and you can get something fairly standard like oak or you can go exotic with Hickory or Tigerwood.  There are so many choices that there is literally something for every taste.

Colors

Flooring can be done in single of multiple colors, from light to dark and in just about shade you can imagine.  Of course, natural colors have a more traditional look but you shouldn’t let that discourage you from trying something more colorful if your decorating style is more liberal.  A word of caution should be shared here though.  When considering color, think about the total cost of the project before you do something too unusual.  In the end, if you don’t like it, you may find yourself replacing the flooring sooner rather than later.

Practicality

As much as we may hate to admit it, practicality should be a consideration when you are making decisions about flooring materials.  For example is the flooring going to be installed in a high traffic location or in a room that isn’t used that often.  In a high traffic area, you may want to choose a material that is more durable.  In a room that isn’t used often, you can be more flexible.  In a bathroom, you will need a material that will standup against moisture.

When choosing flooring, it is important to think about how often and how it will be used.  Making sure you choose the right material for the right area is an essential step when installing new flooring.
