Where are you putting the floor? Different flooring works in different areas of the house. Moisture susceptibility and durability are major deciding factors for figuring out which flooring is right for you, this is especially true in rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom.
What style and color are you looking for? The floor can transform the look of a room, so take some time to think about what style and mood you want the room to convey. Bringing home samples of flooring can be the best way to see what really works in your space.
How hard are you going to be on your floors? Do you have kids or pets? Does the room get high traffic? All of these factors will impact the durability you’ll need in a flooring material. Also consider this when thinking about how long you want or need the flooring to last.
