First, determine the purpose of the room you are having refloored. Each room in your home has a unique purpose and your flooring choice should reflect this.
Here’s an easy example of how the purpose of a room might affect your choice in flooring:
Your kitchen is a high traffic area of the home with lots of food being handled and potentially spilled all over surfaces as well as flooring. You should take these realities into consideration and choose a floor that isn’t stainable and is able to withstand heavy foot traffic. You’ll want a surface that is water-resistant as well as comfortable to walk on — especially if you spend a lot of time cooking or cleaning in the kitchen. A couple of good flooring options that we’d recommend for frequently used kitchens are hardwood floors, which are highly durable as well as easy to clean, and vinyl floors, which are comfortable to walk on and water resistant.
Design and aesthetic style affect every aspect of your home.
Similarly, your flooring choice should reflect your style and the aesthetic of the rest of your home. Flooring really does play a major part in the home environment and it’s important to know that not all furniture is cohesive across the spectrum of flooring. Some floors are not able to go with certain colors, tones, or stains so it’s important to identify your style so that you can avoid any potential aesthetic clashing.
If you choose a specifc style, such as Rustic Farmhouse or Modern, you should carry that look throughout your home so that your design flows and is balanced. Some have certain rooms more flashy with loud paint & flooring which is ok too, but you always want to be careful that your overall choices blend.
