Whether you are remodeling a beloved home or creating a fresh layout for your new business, choosing how you will decorate a room brings a certain unmatched thrill. But when you imagine your dream home or office, how much attention do you give to the floor? Selecting the right flooring for your residential or commercial space can be one of the most agonizing steps in the design process. With seemingly limitless options, how do you know which type of flooring will visually suit your tastes while being able to withstand the wear and tear that accompanies daily use? As you move throughout your search for the optimal flooring to meet your individual needs, keep in mind these quick and easy tips from Montana Custom Floors.
Find Your Style
Flooring can be a very personal choice. After all, floors aren’t just the place for you to rest your feet; they tie a room together and serve as a reflection of your tastes. In order to find the flooring that best suits your aesthetic preferences, take the time to discover your style. Learn what you like and dislike by speaking with experts or exploring sites that share popular home design ideas, like Pinterest. We recommend not merely browsing floor samples, but studying images or showrooms that display different types of flooring within the grander vision of the completed room. This helps you to recognize what kind of atmosphere you would like to create and how your floor plays a vital role in that process. To choose your ideal floor, learn your tastes and find the flooring to match.
Determine Your Budget
With your stylistic preferences in mind, it’s time to dig into your wallet and set a budget. While the price of flooring may change with the market, there are some basic factors that should always influence your spending. For one, you should take into account the size of the space you are flooring. While a particular type of floor may appear as a relatively cheap option, that price can quickly leap if you are covering a large area. Always approach new flooring equipped with your space’s square footage in mind. If you don’t know the square footage of an area off the top of your head, simply multiply the length of the room by its width. Flooring a room with irregular dimensions? No worries. Just divide the room into segments of squares and rectangles that are easier to calculate, then add the square footage of each subsection for your total.
Plan to purchase slightly more flooring than your space actually requires. This provides a safety net for miscalculations in square footage and errors in your floor’s application. Plus, this surplus product will come in handy for any future repairs that you may need!
To achieve the most quality product possible, we recommend sourcing an experienced flooring company to help you with the installation, which means that you will need to factor a flooring team into your overall costs.
Know Your Needs
Ultimately, the ideal floor will appeal to your personal preferences, fit within your budget and align with your lifestyle. You’ll want to consider your floor’s placement, the elements that it will be exposed to and how much time you’re able to devote to its upkeep. Other important questions to ask yourself when selecting a floor:
- How easy is my floor to maintain?
- Do I need a pet-friendly floor?
- Will my floor be exposed to high humidity?
- How soon will my floor need to be replaced?
- Which do I value the most, style or durability?
Before you choose a floor, don’t forget to make sure that it aligns with the demands of your daily life in addition to satisfying your sense of style and your budget.
Which floor is the right floor for me?
At the end of the day, there are countless types of flooring for you to choose from. So how do you know which one is the best? All floorings have their benefits, whether it be their elegant appearance or their durable nature. As far as we’re concerned, however, there’s only one type of flooring that has it all, and that’s a custom epoxy floor.
Benefits of Epoxy
Epoxy flooring is a chemical mixture of resin and a hardening agent laid over a concrete substrate. Its durability and temperature resistance make it ideal for areas with heavy foot traffic or prone to spills. That’s why epoxy is the preferred choice for garages or commercial spaces. On the other hand, epoxy comes in a variety of colors and textures. It is so highly customizable that it can be tailored to nearly any design, making it a fashionable choice for business fronts and showrooms. Moreover, properly installed and maintained epoxy can last for years and seldom needs repair, making it a cost effective option over time. In short, when you need an aesthetically pleasing floor that is ready to take whatever you throw at it, epoxy is the premium flooring.
