Grand Rapids, MI (WOTV) - If you're really looking to update the look of your home, new floors will make all of the difference. Using authentic materials for the floors will add character, charm and richness. Flooring is an investment for your home. Here's what you need to know.
Choose flooring first. All of the rooms' design elements rest on the floor. Since it usually takes a beating somewhere in your home, you'll want to purchase high quality materials, finely crafted with a timeless design you'll love for a long time.
What's your style? Exactly what those authentic flooring materials are will depend on your taste, the look you're trying to achieve, the feel you want underfoot and of course, function. Some options to consider are hand made tiles for an entry or master bath, cork if your flooring surface is uneven, bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource, wool and silk carpets or area rugs are so luxurious and the time-worn look of hand scraped hardwood evokes images of the past.
What's the story? Original coloration, texture and patterns will give your home a truly finished, unique look that no one else has! And you might even have a story to tell about how or where you made your original selection!
What's the budget? While there are always times - budget and function especially - that a laminate or vinyl will be more appropriate, I urge you to be bold, be brave, think real! After all, this is 4 you!
