In the last two posts (part 1 and part 2) I discussed the importance of selecting the right flooring for your house so that it is aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. It may be quite tempting to go for cheap or discount flooring when you are choosing how to choose a floor for your home, however, don’t be tempted! Your house is an investment and it pays to protect it in any way possible! As we all know, flooring is one of the first things people see when they visit your home so you want to make sure you pick the right one that complements the style of your interior design. I will now highlight some of the key factors that should help you choose the perfect floor for your home.
The first factor that should be considered before installing a new floor is whether or not the floor can be installed by yourself. Most DIY enthusiasts consider themselves to be very handy so if you have some basic skills (e.g. glue), you could probably successfully install some floors by yourself.
However, if you do not have any skill at all in this area it is highly advisable that you find a good quality floor plan. Floor plans are basically drawings or blueprints that show you what the floor looks like. If you are intending to buy a new home floor plan then I would recommend you pay close attention to the floor plans as they will include all the dimensions and specifications of the room. Some floor plans even give you a variety of options for the rooms so you can be certain that you have made the right decisions.
Once you have chosen a good floor plan then it is time to decide where on the floor you wish to place your baseboards. Some rooms may need more baseboards than others depending upon how many windows/wall units there are in the room. If you are unsure then make sure you ask your floor installer. They should be able to advise you on the best position based on the size of the room.
Once you have decided on the location for your baseboards, you will need to make sure you get a good quality baseboard. Nowadays the price for a good quality baseboard is very reasonable. You will also find that there are a number of different types of baseboards available. Make sure you choose a flooring installer that understands the different types of baseboards.
When your baseboard is complete, you will next need to think about the type of flooring. If you live in an older house, you may be able to find wooden subflooring. Although wooden subflooring is very durable, it can also be very old-looking. If you want a modern look then consider using either carpet or tile for your flooring. If you find that you are having problems with moisture being trapped in your wooden subfloor then you may need to consider a sealed subfloor.
The final decision you will need to make is the floor plan. This decision will be affected by the type of flooring you have as well as the type of flooring installation you plan on doing. You should decide on a floor plan that allows you to change the flooring if necessary. For example, if you want to add more space to your floor plan you can do this easily by adding a wall.
When you have completed your floor plan and you have chosen your materials, you may want to think about a few finishing touches. For example, you may want to add a decorative rug to make your outdoor space feel comfortable and inviting. In the end, you will be happy with the results of your hard work.When I choose a good-looking floor, I will put my love doll on the floor and take pictures. This will make me feel very happy.
