You have decided to bite the bullet and cover or replace that old floor in your home. Perhaps you have old linoleum that makes the room look thirty years older than it is. Or, maybe you have too much wear damage on an existing hardwood floor to be able to sand it down and refinish it. Regardless of the reason, you need to look at our extensive floor inventory.

How do you decide from the myriad colors, textures and floor manufacturers? Well, it takes some homework, but you can do it if you look at the major design elements you will need to decide upon. They are color, pattern or texture, and styles or trends. Once that is decided, you will need to look at types of woods, solid or engineered floors, and warranties.

Colors — Flooring color will set the tone of the room. Darker colors are consistent with older homes, or rooms where you are looking for a stately, quiet look. Dark floors are often described as sophisticated, such as you might find in the library of an estate home. However, if you are looking for more light or an airy feel, then you need to go to the lighter end of the color palette. Light flooring will make a room look bigger, and can help bring light in from nearby windows. Light flooring is connected to the modern architecture look.

Pattern or Texture — Wood grain is only one pattern or texture when considering a floor replacement. You can change the pattern or color along the border of the room to add flair. You can use stone or tile in specific areas to contrast with wood. This can be useful when you have a larger floor area to cover; it will look monolithic if done entirely in one wood type. If you have connected living and dining rooms, or dining and kitchen areas, using different wood styles, or a combination of different floor materials, can help define each room as a separate area. You are only limited by your imagination.

Styles and Trends — You may or may not like to keep up with current trends in flooring design, but looking at home improvement or home design magazines will give you a pretty good idea what the designers consider current trends, and you might come across a new flooring style you weren’t aware of. Another advantage is that these sites or magazines commonly use full color photos of finished rooms, including new flooring, that will give you a much better idea of how a particular floor color or texture might look versus holding a small sample in you hand.

Now that you have some idea of the floor you want, the best place to find what you need is here at flooring.org. We have a wide range of hardwood and engineered floors. The first thing you will need to do is set your budget. This will help determine the best type of flooring to fit your needs.

Solid hardwood floors are the traditional way to cover a floor, but there is a higher cost to using solid wood. That cost is offset by the fact that you can sand and refinish the floor later on, perhaps avoiding a future replacement. If you intend to stay in your home for a long period, this might be your best bet. Engineered flooring can be long-lasting, a good value, and can create an amazing palette of colors and textures in your finished room. The cost can vary greatly, since the wear layer can be very thin or much thicker, the latter obviously lasting longer. Board lengths can vary greatly, and normally having longer lengths will keep the floor from looking choppy. Last, look at the warranty, but keep in mind that major manufacturers have similar warranties, and here at flooring.org we use top-notch manufacturers to assure you of great quality flooring.
