Planning Your New Floor

Flooring is one of the main features of any home and if you want your home to make a statement, choose your floors carefully. Flooring should last a very long time so be sure to choose something you will love for many years to come.

Because cost is such a high factor for most homeowners, it’s nice to have an estimate of what your flooring will cost. Using our flooring estimator tool, you will get a good idea of how much square footage you have and therefore how much flooring you will need for your home. Don’t forget to add in a waste factor, which is an average of 10%.

One thing to consider when planning for new flooring is the type of foot traffic that will flow through the room. For instance, a family room that is used everyday by several people might require a different type of flooring than say a formal dining area that is only used on major holidays. If pets and/or children are in the home, they should be taken into consideration. Pets and kids can be hard on flooring so please keep that in mind when choosing the best floor covering.

Today’s floors offer more choices. If you love the look of stone but don’t like the price tag, vinyl and laminate are now manufactured to mimic natural stone flooring. The same goes for hardwood flooring. Laminate and vinyl are two flooring types that are made to be great imposters for real wood floors.

One of the best ways to see how your new floors will look is to use our virtual room designer. This will help you get a great visual of different flooring types as well as colors and patterns.

Hardfloors as an invesment
Useful info. Thanks for sharing. However there's one more issue to consider - the flooring type as an investment. a href=""Houses/a with stone or high quality floors maintain higher value over time.
