What room?

The room this new flooring is for will really help you narrow down your options. If the room is one where water is a factor, you’ll want to choose something waterproof or resistant. Options for that include ceramic tile, stone, and vinyl flooring. However, if you’re choosing carpet for a living room or bedroom, all options are on the table!

High Traffic?

Are you choosing flooring for a high traffic area? If so you’ll want something durable.  There are great options for durable flooring like laminate, ceramic tile, vinyl, and even some carpets. If the room is likely to see lots of dirty shoes, you might not want to choose carpet.

Budget?

Your budget will definitely help you narrow down your options for choosing flooring. If you don’t have much of a flooring budget, sheet vinyl or carpet may be the best options for you. With a little more money there are great options for laminate, luxury vinyl plank/tile to consider.  If you’ve set aside plenty for those floors, ceramic tile and hardwood are great options to look at.

Style?

Finally, consider your own personal style. Do you like the sleek look of a beautiful tile or shiny hardwood floors? Are you willing to put in a little extra time to keep those floors looking beautiful? Do you prefer the cozy warmth of carpet? Are you looking for something unique like the various looks of luxury vinyl?
