Renovating Your Home the Smart Way

Renovating Your Home the Smart Way

So, you’ve decided to make some home improvements. Perhaps you’re considering putting your home on the market and want to increase its value, or maybe it’s simply time for an upgrade. Whatever your reasons, renovating your home is a fantastic idea…if you do it right. Once you’ve made the decision to renovate your home, floor material choice, paint color, furniture, and much more all come into play. It can be easy to go over budget if you’re not careful. Things like a bad paint job, hastily purchased appliances, or deciding on a floor surface that you end up hating can, and will, lead to overspending in a heartbeat. That’s why it’s so important to plan everything before you begin buying furniture and ripping up your old carpet. Plan? Design? Decisions, decisions…Don’t despair, that’s where we come in.

Our showroom in Melbourne, FL, is brimming with possibilities. And, so is your journey towards home renovation.

Say you’ve decided to renovate your kitchen/dining room area, and you love the homey, rustic charm that hardwood floors exude. Replacing the old carpet in your dining room and linoleum flooring in your kitchen would make a world of difference, that’s for sure! But do you want to go with classical wood flooring, or have you explored all your options? For that matter, what type of wood look do you like? Deep brown mahogany wood? Pale ash wood? Textured teak wood? Or, perhaps a more daring paint-splattered wood look is up your alley. What if we told you that whatever type of wood flooring you’re leaning towards, we may just have a better alternative?

Wood look tile is almost indecipherable from real wood, and it comes with plenty of advantages. While real wood tends to warp over time, especially in high foot-traffic areas, tile is made of much more durable materials, so it stands firm. It’s also much easier to clean than real wood, and it generally is more affordable than a hardwood floor. Take a look at a few of the wood look tile choices we have for your Palm Bay home. Not only will our expert team of designers help you decide on a flooring to fit your style preferences and budget, our professional tile installers will immaculately install your flooring to your exact specifications. In our next blog, we’ll delve deeper into to pros and cons of real wood versus wood look tile, so stay tuned!
