Flooring is the anchor of your home. It is where you walk, yes, but it is a pivotal element that sets a strong tone and style for your room, depending on what selection you make. In addition to style and tone, there are a lot of practical things to consider. When making such a large purchase, you want to avoid making a regrettable decision, so be sure to consider these following three things:
Think about the wear and tear that your lifestyle and your family members’ lifestyle will introduce to your floors. Will your new flooring be in a high traffic area? Is it near a door where people will be walking in and forget to take off their shoes right away? Do you have kids and pets, will they be occupying the space frequently?
These are important questions that you need to consider when evaluating what floor is appropriate for your lifestyle.
2. Comfort & Climate
You absolutely want your home to be a place of comfort so be sure to consider how the flooring will make you feel throughout the years different seasons. Will it be pleasant to walk on? Do you live in a cold climate? One nice option for floors that are cold during winter months is to include radiant heating.
3. Allergies & Health
If someone in your family suffers from allergens like dust, mites, pet danders and molds, you should consider avoiding carpet. There are a lot of fabulous hypo-allergenic options like tile, vinyl or hardwood.
These things are just a few of the many things to consider. For guidance and direction on how to best select a floor that suites your needs, schedule your free, in-home consultation with a Nest Expressions professional by emailing [email protected] or calling 724.449.1100!
