    Your flooring impacts the room as much as any other decorative element.

    With that in mind, “now” may be the perfect time to upgrade any outdated or worn out flooring.

    Here are some great choices for upgrading your flooring.

    KITCHEN FLOORS

    The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home, as it’s heavily visited.  If you’re planning to remodel it or ready to update an old kitchen floor, you need to choose a replacement that’s sure to last.

    LUXURY VINYL FLOORS

    The days of tacky looking vinyl flooring are gone.  You need something stylish and durable.

    Luxury vinyl gives the look of hardwood and tile without the expensive price tag.  It’s fairly easy to maintain and comes in a wide variety of styles and colors to match your style.

    TILE FLOORS

    It’s highly durable and easy to clean. Tile is a perfect choice for the kitchen.

    When it comes to material, ceramic tile flooring is a great choice.  The average cost to install a ceramic tile floor is very reasonable per square foot.

    And keep in mind that when it comes to a ceramic tile style, a choice that’s here to stay is gray tile.  You can also go with wood-look ceramic tile that mimics wood.  This means you can get the look of a hardwood floor without risking the damage and expensive price tag.

    BATHROOM FLOORS

    The bathroom is a high-moisture and high-traffic area.

    Finding the right floor is crucial.  Among the top options is tile.  Tile can handle foot traffic and hold up very well against water and moisture.

    Popular bathroom tile styles and designs include geometric shapes, like octagons and rectangles.  Look for colors in gray, white, and even black to mix and match or create a continuous look.

    Tile, that doesn’t actually look like tile, is also becoming popular.  For instance, cement and marble look-alike tile both provide the look without all the upkeep and huge price tag.

    HARDWOOD FLOORS

    Hardwood flooring never goes out of style.

    Wide plank wood floors add to rustic décor as well as reclaimed wood floors.  Bamboo hardwood floors are popular as they add to the effort of creating a green and sustainable home.  The choices are endless!

    When it comes to wood type and stain, some fun choices include an ultra-light blonde or dark hardwood.  This all depends on the style of room you have.  Lighter woods work great in a contemporary room, while dark wood creates the warmth needed in a rustic room.  If you’re considering a hardwood floor installation, the wood you choose will factor into your total cost.  Hardwood floors can be pricey and worth every penny.

    CARPETING

    Carpet is the answer for rooms needing warmth.

    If your bedroom or living room could use a little something to make it more cozy, consider carpeting.

    Recycled carpets are in.  Using materials such as plastic or old carpeting, it’s made into brand new, fresh carpeting.

    The Carpet America Recovery Effort estimates 3.6 billion pounds of carpet have been recycled over the last 15 years.  If you’re replacing your carpet, you can be a part of these recycling efforts by locating the nearest carpet reclamation center to dispose of yours.

    When it comes to color, bold is in.  Let your carpet make a statement.  If you’re not ready to change your carpeting to a bright and bold color, consider an area rug.  This helps to get the look without a permanent addition.

    The flooring in your home is one of the largest decorative pieces you have.  If you’re due for an upgrade, consider one of these flooring ideas.
