Do you like your floor? Do you want to change your flooring material? Would you prefer your flooring be more environmentally friendly? Do you wish it was easier to clean? It is important to consider these things before starting construction on your new home or remodeling your current one. By researching your options for flooring material you will be able to find what best suits your needs and wants for your new floor. Of course, first you need to figure out what you need and want. Use the following tips to help you decide on the ideal flooring for you.
Carpeting collects dust mites, mildew, and pet dander, all of which are difficult to remove. It is bad for people with allergies, and is often made from synthetics which are not good for the environment. Carpet tiles are worth considering, since they can be easily replaced, one at a time, if damaged or stained. Another bonus is that they can be installed without using a professional installation service. Often these are made from recycled materials.
Usually, the color of the floors is chosen after the color of the walls is chosen. However, in many expensive houses, where beautiful custom designed flooring such as tile, marble and parquet is installed, the flooring material is an integral part of the original architectural design, frequently requiring that the color choice of these expensive materials be made early in the design process. There may be some room for flexibility; for example, elaborate mosaic floors are used in limited areas and wood floorings are in natural colors that blend with any color scheme. Natural wood floorings even from the lightest to the darkest can blend with most color schemes and because of their tone become almost neutral with a strong color scheme. Some may even consider this a negative feature of wood flooring, since flooring can be considered such a strong feature of a room, combining the appearance of strength with the ability to blend into the background.
