Questions to Ask Yourself When Choosing Flooring

Questions to Ask Yourself When Choosing Flooring

Your next home improvement project requires you to make a lot of important decisions. From paint color to cabinet wood choice, your final decisions can make a big difference in your remodeled room. As you make your decisions and weigh your options, don’t forget to consider what type of flooring would work best for your next project. Here are just a few questions you can ask yourself in order to narrow down your flooring choices.

What is the room used for?

Your flooring choice needs to match the needs of the room. If you don’t install flooring that can handle the demands of the room, you run the risk of needing to replace the floor within the next year. For example, a bathroom would never work well with carpet on the floor.

What is the room traffic like?

If your room is a high traffic area, like a foyer or kitchen, you want to choose a floor that is durable enough to withstand it. In contrast, you can choose a more delicate flooring for less trafficked rooms, like a guest room or office.

Is there water or food in the room?

Bathrooms and kitchens need a floor that can stand up to water and that won’t absorb that red sauce from your spaghetti dinner last night. For these rooms, steer clear from carpet or hardwood. Instead, pick tile, laminate, or even vinyl to give you a beautiful floor that can handle it.

Can I work with what I have?

If your room has hardwood floors that are damaged, don’t cover them up without at least considering refinishing them. These floors are beautiful and offer a timeless design once you give them some TLC.
