Hawaii Flooring Specialists Share 3 Tips on Choosing The Perfect Floors For Your Home, Honolulu, Hawaii

The type of flooring you choose to install in your home can set the whole tone for your interior décor scheme, but if you feel overwhelmed by the sheer variety of flooring choices on the market today you’re not alone. The design experts at Hawaii Flooring Specialists in Honolulu, HI, have been helping customers find beautiful flooring solutions for years. Here’s their professional guide to choosing a durable floor that looks fantastic in your home:

  • Identify Unique Durability Requirements: If the flooring you’re purchasing is going to be installed in a bathroom or basement, it’s best to narrow your options to materials that can handle a lot of moisture. Engineered hardwood floors and tiling are both great options because they’re easy to clean and can stand up to lots of humidity and moisture. Other options include Vinyl Plank Flooring and a new waterproof laminate floor called Paradigm, which also looks like wood, but is more durable in areas with high moisture. Parents with active kids and people with large dogs can also benefit from choosing ultra durable engineered wood floors.
  • Set a Budget: Flooring is typically priced by square foot, which can be a little confusing. The first thing you need to do is calculate the amount of space you need to cover. A gorgeous tile that’s 8 dollars per square foot might seem reasonable, but if the space in question is 1,000 square feet that flooring will end up costing you $8,000! Set a budget before you shop so you don’t get overwhelmed and remember to inquire about installation costs as well.
  • Consider your décor personality: Having a new floor installed can completely change the look and feel of your home. Light colored plank wood floors can make any space look breezy and modern while parquet style flooring adds lots of visual interest and uniqueness to any room. Check out design blogs and take note of the flooring in your favorite spreads. You’ll probably find yourself choosing similar styles time and time again, which can give you great insight into your preferences.
