All great ideas start from the ground up, and remodeling a room in your home is no different.  When designing or remodeling a room you want it to be inviting and functional, so don’t forget the floor.  The floor will set the tone for the room.  So whether you prefer the soft plush look of carpet, the bright color of hardwood or the long lasting style of a tile floor; the floor should pull the entire room together. There is nothing worst then a beautiful decorated room, wrecked by an out-of-date carpet or a poorly installed wood floor.

Carpeting is the top floor-covering choice in the United States.  The single most important thing in choosing a carpet or rug is understand your lifestyle and select carpet that will stand up in places where it will get the most wear. The trick is to avoid abrupt transitions between areas. It’s more pleasing to stay with a basic tone and coordinate choices for continuity in texture and pattern.



Natural wood floors are beautiful, but also increase the value of your home. Hardwood floors are available in many colors and makes, such as cherry wood, walnut and laminate.  If you want to install new wood floors, be sure to choose a wood that meshes with the style of your home or the style you aim to create.


Ceramic tile outperforms and outlasts most other floor covering product.  Tile is a practicel flooring option for bathrooms and kitchens because of its durability. It also offers limitless design possibilities in color, style, shape and finish, giving you the opportunity to create a very personal design statement.
