Hardwood or Carpet: A Step By Step Guide To Choosing Your Perfect Flooring(Infographic)
There are hundreds of different flooring options available to choose from when redecorating your home. This can make it rather overwhelming to filter through each one and determine which type is right for you. That’s the reason we’ve decided to create a step by step guide that walks you through the entire process of choosing the perfect flooring.
Whether you plan on creating a modern and sleek look throughout your home with the use of wood flooring and cris colours, or whether you prefer a more traditional style and are considering carpet, there are still several things you should consider before making your decision.
A few of these include:
One of the first things to consider is the colour scheme of your home. We recommend purchasing flooring that complements the current colours in your home, or one that will match numerous colour schemes in case you decide to decorate.
Placement of the flooring
The placement of your flooring is also really important because some floor types aren’t suitable for certain rooms. For example, wood flooring and carpet can become damaged when in regular contact with water, so try to avoid using them in bathrooms. Instead, try lino.
Square footage budget
Determining your budget is vital before choosing flooring because you don’t want to fall in love with something you’re unsure you can afford. Wood is more expensive per square foot than carpet so if you are opting for wood floors, be aware of your maximum budget.
Although there are several different factors to think about when deciding on the best flooring for you, try to ensure you still consider your personal preferences as well rather than focusing on cost and colour scheme.
