You finally have come to a conclusion that you and your home need a new flooring. But where to start and how to make a final decision? We are going to provide you with some very handy tips.

1. Start with the type of your home

If you live in a condo, most likely your real estate agreement has some points and restrictions on flooring installation. Please make sure you look it up prior to getting any work done. If you live in a free-standing residential building, the type of subfloor will determine your options.

If you need a new flooring for a basement suite, an engineered floor would be your number one option.

2. See what type of flooring would match with your room design (furniture and decoration)

You definitely need to match your flooring with the furniture in the room if you are keeping it.

3. Pre-plan the work for your rooms

Make a quick sketch of the rooms where the work needs to be done marking the areas where special fitting will be required (closets, stairwell)

 4. Contribute into durability of your new flooring

Always consider the traffic at your home: the more people live at one place, the more vulnerable your floors are. So if your home is full of kids and pets, more durable wood flooring with matte finishes would serve you better and longer.

 5. Make a little research

Seeing actual materials samples might help you with the decision. Always keep in mind the room and the purpose of this room. Is it dark or bright?

 6. Minimize your risks

Floor installation requires special skills and knowledge. It is highly recommended to get installation done by professional specialists. Make sure you invite them for the measurements and quotes and ask all the questions.

 7. Choose the right materials

It is up to you where to buy the materials, from your installer’s supplier or any other specialized dealer, but make sure to clarify the following questions:

Is the delivery provided? How long does it take?

Does a dealer offer a guide on how to take care of the materials?

Are there any warranties from the dealer and manufacturer?

8. Look around for a reputable dealer

How long the dealer has been distributing flooring materials?

Is the dealer an official representative of the brand that you would like to purchase?

Does anyone from your friends or relatives can recommend this dealer?

Does the dealer know all the aspects of the flooring materials?

Going step by step will get you ready to make the right decisions.
