Completely Painless Flooring is Now a Reality (Part 1 of 5)

Are you among the countless American home-owners who, despite wanting or even needing new floors, delay selecting them or even put this experience off indefinitely because you’re concerned about making a mistake?

Completely Painless Flooring is Now a Reality

If you want to be certain you are pleased with your next floor, your wait is over.  Follow these simple steps to the floor you’ve always wanted…

Many of us assume selecting a new floor must be a painful experience, one second only to having a root canal.  It’s true…  Finding the right floor poses us with an array of concerns so daunting that this process can actually become overwhelming and, in the extreme case, incapacitating.  So let’s start by considering some of these concerns.  Then, as we will understand them better, we can consider how to overcome them so we can actually have that new floor after all!  (… And maybe we’ll even enjoy choosing it.)

Many of us fear we lack the ability, knowledge and experience to make this considered purchase in an informed way.  We actually let this worry dissuaded from choosing new flooring.  But really, we don’t lack any crucial information or experience; we lack the confidence, and we lack confidence for good reason!  But, believe it or not, we know everything we need to know to select wonderful new floors confidently.  We just don’t realize it yet.

Let’s face the facts…  We don’t purchase flooring often.  On average, Americans
replace their floors once every ten years; so, many of us may never even have tried to select a new floor.  When we do, we start to think about all the options.
Should we choose carpet, hardwood, ceramic tile, porcelain tile, natural stone tile, sheet vinyl, vinyl tile, or laminate flooring?  Which type of carpet…?  What color?  What effect will our flooring choice have on the look of our home?  What impact will we have on our floor?  With so many options that raise so many questions, how does anyone ever decide on a floor?  The flooring we select has a long-term and far-reaching effect!  Our floors finish around a ¼ of our home’s interior.  They have a more profound effect on the style and feel of our home than even paint.  And, our floors absorb all the most intense use and the worst kinds of abuse we and our families dish out.  We literally walk all over them!  Then we must reconcile ourselves to the cost!  Our floors can (and should) represent the single most costly investment we make inside our home, furniture and appliances notwithstanding.  Picking new flooring really may demand a great deal of thought, but all is not lost…  We already know everything we need to know to make the best flooring choices.  So, we  really can and should have the floors we want; and, believe it or not,  choosing can be easier done than said!  All you need is take the first step…
