Choosing The Right Flooring
For Your New Home
Since the floor is a key design element to any room in your new home, you'll need to ask yourself a series of questions so you can be sure you select the right flooring based on design, location, lifestyle and budget.

The first step in choosing a floor is deciding what look you want for each room and throughout your home. Remember the floor is a key design element that influences a space's overall character, so you'll want to spend some time selecting the right flooring (wood, laminate, vinyl, ceramic and linoleum), colors, patterns, textures and even shapes to enhance your home's decor.

Since natural sunlight or ultraviolet (UV) light can change a floor's color, be cautious what material you choose and what room you choose to use it in. Some species of hardwood, such as Brazilian cherry, take on a darker, richer color over time, when exposed to direct sunlight, which can be considered a desirable design change. Today's vinyl floors do not yellow like their predecessors did when exposed to light, so their colors remain true over time. Since new linoleum can have a yellow cast, called a drying room it's recommended to let linoleum samples sit in a sunny location in your home for a several hours before selecting your floor.
