How much did price come into play?

Welcome back to our Monday Minute, How do you choose the right flooring? Last week we gave you options to consider when selecting the right flooring. One of those options that ranked high on everyone’s lists was cost. Understandable, but let us ask you this, how much did price come into play when choosing your home? Did you say, “This is good because it’s cheap? It’s not in the neighborhood I like, nor is it in the school district I like, and the parks look unsafe, but hey, it’s cheap.” Probably not. More than likely, you saved for that home in the neighborhood you liked, and it’s in the right school district, and the parks are perfect for your children, grandchildren, and puppies to play. So we ask you, why would you settle for less when it comes to choosing the right flooring for your home that you selected so carefully to call home?

Today, let’s focus on what four factors that you should consider when deciding on the best flooring for your space. First,  ask yourself, “Where do I want my new flooring to be?” Is it going to be in the bathroom? How about the hub of the home, your kitchen where flavorful foods are crafted, laughter is heard, and memories are made? How about that laundry room that seems to pile up with dirty clothes no sooner than you finishing the wash? Perhaps you’re escaping the inside of your home and going straight outside to that beautifully enclosed lanai. No matter what space you are dealing with, consider these options:

  1. Personal
    1. Property Type
    2. Household Type
    3. Function
    4. Safety
    5. Comfort
    6. Maintenance
    7. Health and Wellness
  2. Property
    1. Temperature
    2. Moisture
    3. Lighting
    4. Style
    5. Construction
  3. Product
    1. Durability
    2. Longevity
    3. Size
    4. Quality
    5. Ease of Installation
  4. Design Elements and Principles-these are a few to consider:
    1. Color
    2. Shape
    3. Texture
    4. Balance

As you can see, there is a lot to consider when selecting the best flooring for your space, and that can seem a bit overwhelming, however, with Interiors Associates, we are helping to ease that frustration with the use of our Product Selector Survey that will be coming shortly to our website for your personal use. This detailed survey will ask you a series of questions based on the four factors that will help to determine what product will meet your wants and needs.
