The decision to update your home’s floors may be one that you have been waiting months or even years to make, and you may be thrilled to finally get started moving forward with this project. Updating your floors can change the entire look of your home, and it can also influence sound, maintenance and more. With this in mind, you may have a considerable challenge ahead of you as you work to make a thoughtful decision about which flooring option to choose.
Focus on Flooring Type First
You can wander through the aisles in MA floor and home improvement stores to get ideas about style, but it can be helpful to first narrow down the options based on factors related to cost, installation time, budget and your maintenance needs.
If you prefer to simply vacuum the floor and do not want to mess with mopping, carpeting may be best. If you are concerned about allergies and indoor air quality, a hard floor surface may be preferred over carpeting.
