The floor of the house is like the face of a person. If it is flawless and beautiful, then, you have halfway positively influenced your potential renter or buyer. A good interior design incorporates the color scheme of the whole house. The flooring may not be immediately noticed, but it is instantly felt. The feel of the tiles and how it looks must evoke pleasant feelings.

Beginning with the foyer, you can use either wood, stone or any tile to make it more inviting. The colors and kinds of flooring used can blend from this point inward. Therefore, if you only have a small house, utilizing one type of flooring in the area of the living room towards the other areas can visually extend the space.

Flooring of your living room can be a challenge because you can have an argument with a younger member of the family who may insist on using an industrial type of flooring which she may insist id the “in” thing while you may not be so delighted in that look. The younger generation now prefers an industrial type of flooring while you may want it to be spic and span white all throughout. You can still accommodate their requests but only up to a certain point because the color theme must flow well. You still need to be decisive about the flooring because it will be hard to change the look of this later since all things on top of it will have to give way to the new one.

Your dining room must be hard because it is more practical for it to be that way. There will be a lot of traffic in the kitchen and this must be hard and smooth. You can trip yourself if the flooring in the kitchen is not even. Wood can easily scratch over time especially if furniture in this area is moved often. Food and liquids can also stain your carpet so you may even think twice about putting in that beautiful one you saw in the home depot.

The flooring of the family room must continue its color theme if you want the overall feel to be spacious and free flowing. If you must choose a carpet, you need to select one that is darker in color so as not to leave a stain or footmarks on it. Floors made of tiles and stones are best for high-traffic rooms.

The bedrooms can be more creative and display your own personality. You may need to check which one is best to fit the hallways going to the bedrooms because these hallways sort of introduce the kind of personality of the occupant when you open the room. Linoleum is environmentally friendly and one of the most durable and beautiful flooring options. It can be accented by using inlays and different borders.

Indeed, the flooring is a good area of the house that speaks a lot about the personality of the owner. Make sure it is positive energy that you want your guests to experience and not a drab, ordinary and forgettable one.
