Guide for Buying

Before you start designing your dream floors, take into consideration these basic questions first: 

Function. What rooms do you want to be done? Are they high-traffic areas? Will they get easily wet or dirty? Considering these things will decide the kind of durability and maintenance-style you’ll be dealing with on your floors.

 

Style. What colours and styles best describe you? Are you looking for floors to accentuate your current room, or are you looking to redesign and redecorate the entire space? The way you style and decorate your new floors will directly influence your budget.

 

Budget. Remember that buying the actual flooring is only part of your budget. Will you need to have floors installed and old flooring disposed? Do you need extra supplies like adhesives, moisture barriers or baseboards? Will you be installing the floors yourself? Considering the complete cost of the flooring project will help steer you into the best floor types for your needs.
