Floors play a significant role in any interior design plan, serving as the ultimate expression of your style. The floor also takes up the most significant amount of square footage in a space, so it's the first thing people see and will make a first impression on your home. It's also a big, possibly the biggest, investment you'll make in your building. Shopping for a new floor can be a little overwhelming, especially with all the choices, but it's essential to select the type that's most aligned with your needs, style, and budget. Here's some advice from Surfaces NW, your flooring company in Salem, OR.
Select the right flooring type
Before going into a flooring store, consider your lifestyle, the size of your family, whether or not there are pets, and how often you cook and entertain. When determining the budget, take everything into account, such as installation, disposal, upkeep, and not just the initial product. Now think about the room in which it's to be installed because each area has its own set of priorities and challenges; what works for one room may not necessarily work for another. Also, consider the size of the space, the amount of natural light, how it is used, and the amount of wear and foot traffic. You also need to read labels and communicate clearly with your flooring expert.
Get a professional installation
A correct installation will save you both time and money in the long term because it will avoid costly repairs and possible premature replacement. Professionals have the experience and knowledge to see potential problems before they occur, prevent them, and then handle them quickly and efficiently if they do occur. You'll also need to consider your warranty; many flooring manufacturers have detailed guidelines on installing and, when not followed, will void the document.
