Extraordinary Flooring Options
ADU Design Center has an array of flooring choices to meet your design needs, be it tile, hardwood, laminate or vinyl.
Floors impact your life. Whether you’re doing yoga in the den, hosting a dinner party in the dining room, or entertaining the neighborhood kids in your kitchen, you need a surface underfoot that’s comfortable and durable.
Since the floor is usually the largest surface in a room, it lays the foundation for the entire look of the space—color, style, texture, and pattern. And a new floor can be a big investment, so you want a surface that will last for years.
Your floor choice is about balancing your needs with your style. A few things to consider before committing to your new floor are your aesthetic style, lifestyle, and of course the budget.
Know Your Style. What colors and patterns do you like? Think about which floor textures appeal to you: the rich grain of hardwood, luxuriously thick carpet or the sleek lines of tile. And take into account your current décor, too. Unless you plan on redecorating on the entire room, you’ll want to choose floors that complement the furniture and accessories you have now.
Consider Your Lifestyle. Think about how you use the room. Are you an avid cook who spends hours standing at the stove? Then you may want to skip the tile, which can be uncomfortable to stand on for long periods. Do your kids leave puddles of water on the bathroom floor? You may want to go for that tile, which stands up to water. Do you have pets who track mud into the front hall?
Crunch Numbers. Calculate your budget. Keep in mind that along with the cost of the floor material, you may need to incorporate the cost of underlayment, delivery, and installation, as well as removal and disposal of your previous flooring. Don’t forget to factor in any additional materials such as baseboards, stains, or adhesives.
