Floors with Benefit’s
Think about how a floor will benefit you and your family. Start by asking this fundamental question: How will this floor improve my life? (You read correctly!) Your new floor should actually improve your life! If not, what’s the point? Will it save you time and energy because you won’t have to invest as much in cleaning it as a result of its easier maintenance? Will it save you money because you won’t have to pay to replace it as often due to its durability? Will you and your family enjoy spending more time in your family room because your new carpet is more comfortable as a result of its softer fiber? Forget about what high-tech material it’s made out of, how many coats of finish, what species of tree a wood floor comes from, whether a tile is clay based or porcelain, who manufactured the carpet fiber, the density, twist, stitch rate, and all the other technical features less ethical salespeople may use to make us feel like we are not qualified to choose well without their help… and focus on what really matters! “What will my new floor do to improve my life?” Will your new floor make you feel proud when you admire it or comfortable when sink your toes into it? Will it save you money? Will it last? Will it be easy to clean? Will it resist stains? Will it complement your window treatments, your sofa, comforter, paint color, counter-top, or all the above? Will it give you the confidence to allow your kids to eat and drink on it so they too can enjoy your new floor? You get the picture. Approaching your choice from this prospective
and leaving the jargon to salespeople simplifies the process; so, you won’t
feel like you need to go back to school for a flooring education to choose well! This actually ensures you will enjoy more about your floor for longer, so your choice will make you and your family happier and more comfortable in your home… And thus actually improve your life! This is what we really want. True?
