Mapping Out Your Unique Needs

Every homeowner’s needs are different. By asking the right questions early on, we can narrow down the options and focus our search on floors that suit your family.

  • What feeling are you hoping to create in each space? Cozy and warm rooms have different needs than high-traffic common areas.
  • How do you anticipate using each room? Will they be kid zones, entertaining spaces, retreats for relaxation? Envisioning the experiences you want to have determines the right flooring fit.
  • Do you have any lifestyle factors that affect choices? Pets, allergies, aging joints that need extra cushy support? Be honest so we find the healthiest solutions.
  • What’s your decor style? Classy and elegant? Cool modern minimalism? Understanding your vibe prevents clashing design choices.
  • Are there existing elements you want floors to complement like cabinets, countertops or fixtures? We select materials that beautifully tie spaces together.

By exploring your unique vision, we identify the non-negotiables most important in potential floors. This clears a path through the jungle of options to lead you to oases of smart solutions.

Questing Through the Flooring Market

Once clear on must-haves for livability and style, we embark on an expedition through the flooring landscape seeking possibilities that fit the bill. Along the way, we’ll equip you with insider knowledge about each category so you can discover the best material for each space based on quality, aesthetics, and value.

Durable Hardwoods – Parquet to Wide Plank Wonders

If rich, timeless wood floors call your name, consider humidity levels. While Jersey isn’t the driest, maintaining 40-60% prevents gaps or warping. We’ll spec unfinished, site-finished or prefinished hardwoods to match climate needs so handsome oak, maple or exotic tropical species wear beautifully.

Pro Tip: Wide plank hardwood flooring is on-trend, offering dramatic impact! For modern or traditional homes, five to seven inch planks add stylish flair.

Eco-Friendly Bamboo and Cork

Seeking sustainable options? Cork resists mold and moisture, provides insulation, wears well in heavy traffic with an earthy, organic vibe. Bamboo offers incredible strength and stability rivaling hardwoods while regenerating rapidly without replanting. Both naturally beautiful choices!

Green Building Fact: Over 12.5 million tons of carpeting is dumped annually in the US. Selecting eco-friendly floors like bamboo and cork reduces landfill waste.

Carpet’s Cozy Comfort

Make bedrooms, nurseries and dens downright irresistible with cushy carpets in fibers suited to your lifestyle. Compare soft synthetics like polyester and nylon to elegant wool’s strength, stain resistance and hypoallergenic perks. With kids or pets, consider solution-dyed synthetics impervious to spills. Virtually any palette can be matched to complement your decor.

Insider Tip: When renovating or building, splurge on carpet padding with thicker density and antimicrobial treatment for health, comfort and better acoustic performance!

Once familiar with category basics, now’s the exciting part – selecting a color personality! Here’s where we get to know your tastes better while considering hues that unify rooms into a happy home.

Do you lean towards…

  • Warm, welcoming earth tones?
  • Cool tones like grays for zen, coastal or modern spaces?
