Style 101

Jumping into a new look for your floor can be daunting. That’s why most people play it safe. But even if you don’t want to show off your wilder side, there are ways to incorporate fun into your floors. You just need to find the look that works with your overall design style.
 
What are my preferences?
Here are a few of the possibilities to consider when deciding on the style you prefer.
 
Modern

If your style is modern, you likely prefer carpets with bold geometric patterns-such as circles or squares-or the clean, sleek look of light-colored hardwoods and laminates. Both are great choices to offset the chic simplicity of contemporary furniture.

Retro
A retro gal combines the designs of the past with the flair of today. You might put Country French floral motifs together with modern chrome accessories or hang a minimalist painting over an antique sideboard filled with vintage items. You enjoy mixing it up!

Natural
You like using elements and colors that help bring the outdoors in. Beautiful stone, natural textures, wood featured in unique ways and places, and the colors of earth and sky-all create a sense of comfort and warmth in a room. Very inviting and nice to come home to.

Fashion-Inspired
For those who favor the runway over the hallway, this is your look. Whether the newest thing is purple paisley or pink patchwork, you’re a trendsetter who loves to take the sleekest looks hitting the stores and bring them into your decor-so it’s as stylish as you are.

What are my options?

These are the basic flooring categories:

Carpet – bold and fashionable

Textures, patterns, loops, and twists. Carpet offers luxurious comfort in a wide variety of styles and colors. Think of carpet for a family room that invites bare feet or a master bedroom that’s a stylish sanctuary.
 
Hardwood – inviting and classic
Add warmth, elegance, and classic style to your home with a new hardwood floor. Hardwood not only lasts for years, it will look even more amazing as it ages. Its versatility, beauty, and strength make it great for most spaces.
 
Area Rugs – dramatic and easy
Since the floor is a room’s “fifth wall”, do it up with drama. An area rug can be as expressive as a work of art. Rugs add style over neutral carpet, complement traditional hardwood, or add warmth to a tile, laminate, or resilient-vinyl floor.
 
Tile & Stone – pretty and practical
Ceramic, porcelain, and stone tiles are appearing in all sorts of new places. Bring them out of the bathroom and into the living room. Trends include glass tiles, different-sized tiles, specialty glazes, and unique border treatments.
 
Laminate – strong and stylish
If you’re on a tight budget, laminate offers the look of hardwood and tile-at a lower cost. Resistant to stains and scratches, laminate is great for busy households with kids and pets. Plus, there’s a huge selection to choose from.
 
Resilient-Vinyl – classy and comfy
Flexible and comfortable underfoot, resilient-vinyl floors certainly feel good. But have you seen how good they look? Incredibly fashionable designs and colors are the hallmark of today’s resilient-vinyl flooring.
