3 Things to Consider Before Changing Your Flooring

Posted on November 24th, 2014 by

The sheer number of flooring choices can overwhelm you as you walk into CMA Flooring in Carrollton, TX. With so many different colors and materials to choose from, selecting the best flooring for your home and family can be difficult. Keep these three tips in mind when redoing the floors in your home to make the decision (a little) easier.

1. Your Use of the Space
Some people eat at the kitchen table every night. Others tend to dine in front of the television. Consider how you use a space when selecting the room’s flooring. A plush Saxony carpet may not be ideal for your living room if it is frequently home to food and drinks, just as hardwood floors may not be the most comfortable choice for a child’s play area.

2. The Rule of Three
A home looks best if you cannot see more than three different types of flooring from any one location. Take this into account before changing out the flooring in your home. Too many contrasting types of flooring can look disjointed and be visually confusing. Think about the overall flow of your home, as well as the specific area you are redoing.

3. Budget
Have an idea of your budget before you go shopping for flooring. There is a wide variety of choices, and flooring can get very expensive very quickly. If you have a clear budget in mind when shopping, you’ll avoid looking at and falling in love with flooring that ultimately will break the bank. Remember to include installation costs in the budget.
