Choose a floor type according to the room's use. Is it a
high traffic area? Is food brought into the area? Some rooms
need to allow for water on the floor, such as kitchens,
bathrooms, laundry rooms and even entryways.
Match or complement the room's decor (paint, fabrics, cabinets,
etc). How would you describe the room? Warm and cozy? Clean
and modern? Remember to consider how it will look with the
adjacent rooms as well.
Remember to include subflooring (underpad), floor preparation
and installation. A material that seems like a bargain may
need more frequent replacement than an option that initially
costs more but is more durable.
