Choosing The Best Flooring For Your Home: A Beginner’s Guide

Choosing the best flooring for your home can seem like a challenge.  Between all of the different flooring products and styles out there, how do you even begin to make the right decision?  At Floor Coverings International Cherry Hill, we offer thousands of different flooring options, of all materials and styles.  However, we won’t leave you on your own to be overwhelmed by the choices!  Instead, we want to offer the type of guidance only decades in the flooring industry can provide with our beginner’s guide to choosing the best flooring for any room in your home!

Start by asking the right questions
One of the quickest ways to narrow down your search for the best flooring is to start by asking practical questions.  All of these will help you to eliminate flooring products that will not offer the results you are looking for, and will guide you toward the best possible choices.  The following questions are some of the most important to ask early on:

- What room is the flooring going in? (Re-flooring a bathroom will lead you in a different direction than a bedroom.)
- How much traffic does this room experience? (A playroom, for example, will need to be much more durable than a rarely used formal dining room.)
- Do you have pets? (If so, you'll want to look at products that are durable
- What are the expected moisture levels in this room? (A kitchen, bathroom, or mudroom needs a water resistant floor covering, while a bedroom usually does not.)
- How long do you want your new floor to last? (Depending upon the quality of the floor, it may last a few years or a few decades.)
- What is your budget? (Often, there are a number of ways to achieve the same look or style… knowing your budget will guide you to the best fit for your family.)

Partner with flooring experts
As you narrow down the options, it is great to have an expert on your side when choosing the best flooring within the parameters you have chosen.  A Design Associate like those from Cherry Hill FCI can offer you invaluable guidance not only in which products will fit your criteria, but also what options will achieve the style you are looking for.  An in-home consultation with one of these flooring experts can help you to make all of your flooring dreams a reality.
