Upgrade Your Older Home’s Flooring

natural-wood-flooringEasy and Economic Flooring Upgrade Options for Old Homes

When thinking of a home upgrade, most people tend to overlook flooring as it is not the most obvious aspect of a home interior.

However, the floor is an easy way to breathe new life into the look and feel of a home. It is also a great way to boost the value of the property without having to spend too much.

Given below are a few simple and cost-effective ways to refresh the old setting of a home through a flooring upgrade:

Installing a Floating Floor

A wooden floor is a great way to create a feeling of warmth and coziness. One of the most convenient ways to get a new wooden underfoot is by installing a floating floor.

This type of flooring differs from the conventional flooring from the aspect that the wooden strips are attached together with glue or snapped together and are not nailed. Floating floors go well with all types of flooring- concrete, sheet vinyl, ceramic tiles as well as plywood.

shag-floor-rugFun and Functional – Area Floor Rugs

This type of rug is one of my favorites, they’re all throw backs that are coming back in style. We’re talking about shag rugs, flokati and sheepskin rugs. These plush and thick rugs bring depth to a room by providing a three-dimensional aspect. The plushness also makes these rugs heavenly to walk on- making them ideal to place in a common seating area. Just imagine running your toes through the soft, thick fabric of a sheepskin rug while you relax on the couch.

If you are like me; your house is painted in neutral colors, your home furnishings are timeless, and your wall accents are very classic pieces. A home that has a neutral theme, like mine, deserves an eccentric accent piece. A patterned rug.

5_dsc5368-leather-chair-accessoriesPurchasing a patterned rug can be daunting, there are so many options.

There is a rug in nearly every pattern you can think of and in various different colors. Placing a patterned rug in any room is a great way to bring an accent piece to your home without taking away from your other carefully chosen home decor pieces.

I would suggest that busy patterned rugs be placed in a larger room, so that the patterned rug does not become an eye-sore of sorts.

On the opposite spectrum of patterned rugs we have the natural material rug. These includes but is not limited to, jute, sisal and bamboo rugs. Natural material rugs provide the same functionality as all other area floor rugs, while keeping a classic and casual feel.

A perk to decorating with a natural material rug is that they are extremely durable, they keep out more dirt, and they are timeless. The natural material rug is a safe purchase, due to their neutral design they have not gone out of style since they became stylish.

Pairing Flooring Types

Who said you have to stick to one flooring style in your home or even in the same room.

There are many ways to prepare multiple flooring types for an elegant stylish look.

custom-flooring-designsWith a little planning you can use different flooring textures to create the perfect feel that’s all your own.

Hardwood and ceramic tile look great together and each flooring type makes the other look even better. Both are extremely durable and transform your kitchen into an upscale restaurant feel.

A ceramic fireplace will also look stellar in a living room or a family room with rustic hardwood flooring for a great outdoor aesthetic.

Think area rugs when you want to add a soft touch to your pre-existing hard surface floor.

A custom sized Smart Strand Rug from Mohawk will add the perfect pop of softness and color to any room.

hardwood-flooring-careHardwoods are amazing performers in your home but they’re not indestructable following some great general guide lines will help you maintain the strength and lasting beauty for years to come.

First, vacuum and sweep your floor regularly with a soft bristle broom especially in high traffic areas, this will reduce grit and dirt buildup that can scratch the wood surface.

Make sure you use a vacuum that does not have a meter bar or rotary brush head. For spills wipe immediately and use Mohawk floor care essentials part wood and laminate floor cleaner. Apply directly to a clean white cloth.
