How To Make The Best Flooring Choices For Your Home

September 8, 2018

Flooring is an intricate part of the overall design of the room. Interior designers say you should design a room from the floor up.


Don’t panic. We’ve got you covered. Find everything you need at Kaufman by Design. Our design experts can help you decide what type of flooring will work best for your space, lifestyle, and budget.

Looking for a flooring contractor? Floating floors like laminate and plank vinyl flooring are DIY friendly. Other floors require some extra skill — and a whole lot of experience — to install correctly. Kaufman has the experience you need to get the job done right the first time around. We offer quality service, satisfaction, and the best prices.


Consider What Is Trending

We don’t want all houses to look the same. However, some popular flooring choices, like hardwood, increase the value of your home. The more popularity, the more interest you will generate if your house is on the market.

Believe it or not, carpet is the most popular flooring selling today. The technology we use to make carpet is advancing. Carpet is soft. The extra cushion carpet offers feels good to walk on and is easy on your back if you need to stand for long periods of time.

Look for interesting patterns in carpet and more cut-and-loop carpet.

Being eco-friendly is certainly trending. Homeowners look for any way they can find sustainable resources that will be beautiful in their home, without damaging the environment. American Hardwood flooring is growing in popularity because the trees that supply the wood are replenished. It is sustainable and no harm is done to the environment.


Narrow Down Your Options.

The type of flooring you choose depends greatly on the room it is being installed in. Not just for style purposes. If the room is prone to moisture like a full bathroom or kitchen, you should consider water-resistant options like ceramic tile or vinyl tile.

What kind of traffic does this room get? If it is a mudroom, for example, we recommend going with the most durable kind of flooring you can get. Concrete is a great option for mud rooms.

The great room of your home gets lots of traffic, but you also want it to look the best. There are great flooring options that look like hardwood but offer more durability. Stay true to your personal style, there is something out there that will fit all your needs — talk with a member of our team to see how Kaufman can help.


Install the flooring correctly.

Hiring a pro is well worth the investment you are making in your home. Different flooring types need special care. Poorly installed carpet will wrinkle. Flooring that is not correctly installed to withstand moisture is prone to mold and more serious damage to your home.

At Kaufman, we are a big fan of DIY projects. We love seeing central Arkansas homeowners trying their hand at a renovation project. Nothing feels quite like making something beautiful on your own. Just make sure you know when to DIY and when to call a pro.
