When a home has too many floor types, it makes the whole appearance of the home look unattractive and chopped. This is especially not good for homes up for resale because buyers see chopped up flooring as added cost on home remodeling to install new hardwood or carpet.
For flooring in the home there’s know right amount for types of flooring. What’s important is how the floors flow to together. For example, you don’t want a tiled foyer and then visitors to the home immediately walk to a wooded family room and a completely different tile in the kitchen. It’s too much too soon.
Flooring should reflect on the size of your home. The smaller the home the more similar you want your flooring to be because it will make your home appear more spacious. If you live a large home, you have a little bit more leg room in flooring options because your home has more to explore.
Have a balance in the different textures and colors you use for flooring for the best results. Avoid abrupt color changes. Remember, you want your home flooring design to flow naturally.
If you really want to use some variety in textures, have hardwood floors installed and place area rugs on top for a change of color.
For kitchens go for cork or marmoleum to give a nice and warm appearance to the home.
If you have marble or granite at your home’s entry way, use hardwoods for your main living areas. The goal is to prevent your flooring from looking like patchwork. Stay with a theme and add small hints of creativity with carpeting. This strategy will surely add value to the home.
