Where Do I Start?


Picking the perfect floor takes time and effort. There are specific things you need to take into consideration when selecting yours. First, consider the most popular types of floors for properties. Why? Because floors that are in high demand are of great quality, and you always want to make sure that your floors are of good quality so you don’t run into problems in the long run. The most in demand flooring options are: wood, vinyl, laminate and ceramic. Wood floors are the number one sellers, especially in Southern California, which is something that our team highly recommends.

The first way to tell which floors should be used is to tell what type of property you have. For example, if your home is modern, dark wood floors or laminate goes great. You can even select a ceramic floor, or bamboo wood. The choices for modern homes are endless, and our website can help you with this process. For more traditional homes we would suggest going with light to dark woods. This goes the same for country style homes.

Different types of floors go good with different areas in your home. For example- hardwood floors go great in areas such as your living room, dining room, kitchen, hallways, and bedrooms. For your bathrooms, because there is a lot of moisture spreading throughout the space, we suggest going with something more durable to moisture. Tile would be a perfect alternative for your bathrooms.

Lastly, selecting the colors of your flooring should mesh well with the interior paint colors of each room. Having darker color paints mesh well with lighter color floors to give the room more light. Having dark floors go great with light colors to make it more bold. The choice is yours!
