Tips and Trends
There are really no rules when choosing a floor. Just listen to your heart. Unless your heart only likes beige, and then you might want to listen to some experts, too.
Burnt ochre, shale green, lemon curry. If it makes you feel good, use it. Color is one of the best ways to spice up a room and create personality.
Please the eyes and the feet.
Texture is the big story in flooring these days. Think about loops and layering and other ways to create a tactile experience.
Layering flooring is as fashionable as layering clothing—specifically using rugs everywhere, even over carpet.
Go green—and not just with the color.
Today, more and more flooring products are environmentally friendly as well as stylish. Look for carpet and rugs that are recyclable and hard-surface flooring (hardwood, laminate, resilient-vinyl, and tile and stone) that has recycled content.
