When it comes to the perfect home, there are plenty of elements that go into finding or designing the right space, from comfort to personal style and preference. And while that can include a whole range of choices, from paint colors to finding the right furniture to fit the feel of the room, perhaps the most important choice one makes in finding the perfect space is in the base of it all. Where your feet will be treading day in and day out, where you might want to sit or sprawl or dance or twirl. Making sure that you have the perfect flooring can help to ensure that your home is everything you want and need it to be.
From fabulous hardwood flooring to the perfect carpet patterns
When you are deciding what you want your floors to be like, you want to remember that you will want something that is both easy on the eyes and easy on the soles. While in one survey, a significant 90% of homeowners confessed to wanting hardwood, tile, or other smooth and easy-to-clean floor textures in the kitchen, many people like a plush or inviting soft carpet in areas like the living room, family room, or bedroom. Most people will typically go for similar floor materials in the bathroom as they want in the kitchen, and other rooms or areas of course completely depend on the preference of the homeowner.
Finding the perfect floor patterns for your home
One poll found that there are 54% of homebuyers who are willing to pay more for a house that has hardwood floors. There is just something about the clean and polished look and feel of such a floor that some are willing to shell out more money. For some it adds a rustic look. There are those who consider more than just the look and feel of the room when deciding on what they will be walking on. If you are hoping to be a bit more earth conscious, there are types of linoleum that are made from flax seeds and other various plant materials. This type of flooring, which is made of wholly natural materials and renewable sources, are completely biodegradable. That is a huge plus for our planet. And there are those of course who, perhaps in addition to the look, style, and environmentally-friendliness of their floors, are looking for maximum comfort and warmth. These home owners get to play with all of the many choices of carpets to choose from.
What do your carpet patterns say about you?
Maybe you want a plush carpet to lay down on in front of a fire on a cold night. Or one that welcomes you to get down on your hands and knees to play with the kids or the puppy you’ve just brought home. Maybe you’re just looking for a little bit of padding on the floor so as not to shock your feet when they first drop out of bed in the morning. The colors, textures, and designs are endless. And maybe you even choose a less common design, to really show off your unique style. The right carpet patterns can set the right tone for the different rooms in your house, and the possibilities are endless.
