Are You Selecting Flooring For Your Living Room Remodel?

Posted on: 2 October 2018

Have you and your spouse realized that it's time to remodel your living room? Perhaps you have been using hand-me-down furniture that you received from friends and family members when you moved into your house. Or, it may be that your furniture is just fine, but it's time to pay more attention to the flooring. From selecting carpeting to sprucing up the furniture, here are some ideas that might help you.

Start With The Flooring - Have you already decided on what kind of flooring you want in your living room? For example, if you already have wooden floors, do they simply need to be refinished so that they can look beautiful again? If that's the case, are you comfortable with refinishing the wooden floors yourself? If not, consider hiring professionals to do the job for you. Perhaps you have been happy with the room being carpeted, and you have chosen to install new carpet in place of the worn carpet you already have.

Even though you love having a carpeted living room, perhaps you want a new look. For example, if you have decided to add some drama to the room, you might want to select a jewel-tone for your carpet color. For something more neutral, consider selecting a very light mocha color for the carpeting. Think of asking the salesperson to show you carpets that are stain-resistant and that will last for a long time. 

Check Out The Furniture - If your furniture is already what you want, consider ways you can give it a new look. For example, if you selected a jewel-tone for your carpet color, think of buying throw pillows for your sofa that will complement the color of your new carpets. If you selected a more neutral color for your carpet, think of adding interest to the room by choosing patterned throw pillows, perhaps in a paisley design or in a floral design. Are you buying new furniture? Think of the mood you want to establish in your living room.

For example, if you want a formal look, consider buying elegant furniture, maybe even adding occasional antique furniture pieces. If you have decided that you want a contemporary look in your living room, think of purchasing furniture pieces that have simple designs and sleek lines. No matter the style of furniture you select, it will more than likely go with the carpet you chose, as carpet is very versatile.
