Floor Covering Options

Floor Covering Options

When decorating your home, don’t forget to take into consideration your floor covering options. You may be happy with the floor coverings you have now or you may decide that you want to replace them. After a fresh coat of paint, nothing beats new floor coverings for bringing new life into your home’s decor.

There are many floor covering options to choose from, and depending on the use of the room you can decide from a large selection including tiles, carpet, or wooden floor boards for your floors.

Tiles look good and are cool underfoot in summer. There are so many colors and tile textures to choose from that the task of choosing can feel overwhelming. To make your selection of floor covering options easier you can go visit some showrooms where they have tiles on display, so you can see what the various types of tiles look like when laid on a large section of flooring.

Carpet is good to have in your bedrooms especially in the winter months. The selection for carpets is just as overwhelming as for tiles, as there are so many styles and colors to choose from. There are varying degrees of thicknesses from long shag, to medium plush pile and then the very short pile that is indicative of kitchen carpet. And you can get just about any color to go with your decor.

It’s important to get a thick, quality underlay for your carpet in areas where there’s not a lot of foot traffic and a thinner ones for those areas of high traffic. There’s nothing nicer than the feel of walking barefoot across a plush carpet that has a thick spongy underlay. It creates a luxurious feel to the room.

Other floor covering options are wooden floor boards. This type of floor covering has been around since homes were first constructed and have really made a comeback in recent years. They make a good quality floor covering and lend themselves to just about any decor. You can enhance them with some beautiful rugs to create a really catching effect in any room.
