Choosing Flooring That Checks the Boxes on Your Wish List

Choosing new flooring can be a big process for some homeowners. Between choosing the material, color, style, and installation pattern, choosing your dream flooring can seem overwhelming. As a local flooring installer, we never want you to feel stressed or unsure about your decisions.

Kitchen Flooring

Most homeowners’ kitchen flooring wish lists include:

  • Ability to withstand water
  • Low maintenance
  • Suit the kitchen’s style and color scheme

Tile may be your first thought, however, there is no reason you can’t choose hardwood or engineered wood. As long as you’re prompt in cleaning up spills, they are viable options. If you’re still including a wood-look floor as part of your flooring wish list but can’t reconcile the idea of water and wood, but don’t like the hardness of tile, consider luxury vinyl planks. It can look like real hardwood and quality brands are virtually as waterproof as tile. Don’t try to match your cabinets or the countertops. Choose a color that brings all the elements in the space together.

Bathroom Flooring

The wish list for bathroom flooring is similar to that of a kitchen. Most people still think that tile is their only option. However, with today’s luxury vinyl products, you do have other options. If the bathroom is a powder room, hardwood and engineered flooring is an option as well. When it comes to installation patterns think about your goals for the style of the room. Do you want it to look bigger? Make sure to keep your flooring color light. Depending on the flooring material and shape, your local flooring installer may have some installation ideas to make the space feel larger.

Living Rooms and Dining Rooms

Whether you call your gathering space a great room, family room, or living room, chances are it’s going to have more traffic than just about any space in your home. Because of that, we often hear durability as a top wish list item. If durability isn’t at the top of the list, then appearance is. As long as you choose a quality flooring material, and your local flooring installer is experienced in that material’s installation, chances are that your floors will last and look great for years to come. How long depends on the material and finishes you choose. As for finishes, think about the furnishing you’re keeping long term. Also think about the natural light in the space. Both will influence how light or dark you want to go with the color of your new flooring.

My Wish List is All About the Look of My New Flooring

If you aren’t set on a particular material but know what look or color you want, we have good news and bad news. The good news is that your options are virtually limitless. Technology advances now mean that both tile and luxury vinyl flooring can look like wood, natural stone, and each other. The bad news is that you’re going to have to make a choice of what material you want eventually.
