3 things to consider before getting new flooring
What makes you feel at home may not be the same for someone else, and when it comes to flooring, you want to choose what’s right for you and your lifestyle -- but where do you begin? We spoke to Cathy Buchanan, one of the experts at Independent Carpet One, to talk about what you should consider before changing up your flooring.
This one change to your home can make it all the cozier
If, during this time, you’ve been taking a good hard look at your home, perhaps you’ve been thinking you could use a change to make it a little cozier. Tiffany Moore, with 50 Floor, explained how just one change with new flooring can give your home a fresh new style and feel. For instance, replacing old carpeting with hardwood, vinyl, tile or laminate can give a room a sleek new look. Or if you want something warm and cozy, replace your old tile with new carpet. Did you know you can shop at home and see how your selection looks with the rest of the furniture?
