Consider The Time Of Year And Your Climate
If you want to do some home improvement projects this spring, consider your climate and think practically.
In the upper regions of the United States, you may be coming out of a long, cold winter, so now might be a good time to address some of the effects of snow and ice on your floors. If you have hardwood floors that have sustained water damage in the winter months, repair them now, so they're good to go for next year. You can also consider adding rugs or mats near entranceways to help keep excess moisture out of your house.
Now is also a great time to start thinking about how you'll decorate your house for summer. Bright colors will give you a taste of warm weather while still cold outside. Soft carpeting will become an even more welcoming place to relax as temperatures rise. Spring is a time for new beginnings—make it happen for yourself!
What Color Do You Want To Work With?
The warm weather is just around the corner, and we know you've got a lot on your "to spring" list. So as you're getting ready to tackle your next project, have you thought about what color flooring you want to work with?
We've got some ideas!
What Type of Flooring are You Going With?
Whether you have a big project or just a few minor updates to make, we're here to help. Here are some of our favorite flooring projects for the spring and summer months:
If you plan to host any parties this season, consider getting new hardwood floors. They're easy to clean, durable, and look great with just about any decor.
Linoleum is a good option if you have pets or kids at home. It's durable, affordable, and easy to clean—and it comes in a variety of styles and colors!
If you're looking for something that's both cheap and easy to install, we recommend vinyl flooring. It's available in a wide range of colors and patterns, so you can find something that matches your decorating style perfectly!
Whatever type of flooring project you decide on this season, make sure it's something that will last for years to come!
Is Moisture an Issue?
If you're planning a flooring project, it's essential to know if your space has issues with moisture. This will help you choose the appropriate materials and ensure that your new floor will remain in good condition for years to come.
Moisture-related issues are prevalent in basements or other below-ground spaces. If you have a basement or other underground area that you plan on renovating, it's critical to ensure no water leaks and that the humidity levels aren't too high. You may consider using waterproof materials to cover the floors or installing a dehumidifier.
Do You Have Allergies or Pets?
Do you have allergies or pets? If so, what kind of flooring would be best for your home?
If you have allergies, it might be good to go for something that isn't carpeted. This can keep allergens from settling into your flooring and constantly kicking up into the air in your home.
If you have pets, it's important to remember that they may scratch floors or chew on them if they're not fully trained. An issue like this can change how durable the flooring is and how long it will last. Luckily, there are plenty of options for pet-friendly flooring!
Is Spring Cleaning on Your To-Do List?
If so, you might be considering getting new flooring in your home. If you plan to get new flooring, we have some tips to help you get the most out of your project.
For one, consider who will be installing your floors (hopefully us). Installing laminate, carpet, or vinyl floors is much easier than installing hardwood floors. You can do it yourself or hire a contractor. However, if you are going for hardwood floors, it is best to hire a professional to handle the project for you.
If you plan to install the new flooring yourself, some tools can help make the job a bit easier and save you time and money in the long run. A contractor will likely have these tools on hand or be able to borrow them from another contractor if needed.
Once you decide who will install your floors, it's time to talk about what kind of flooring you want in your home. Laminate and carpet are excellent choices for many reasons but depending on where you live, they may not be the right choice for your home. Carpet tends to hold more dirt and dust than other types of flooring, which can cause allergies or other respiratory.
