Decorating a New Home

Redecorating a new house is a fun and exciting way to showcase your personality and make the home more comfortable for your family. Of course, simply adding your furniture and possessions will go a long way toward making the new house feel like home. If you want to customize the home further, consider replacing the flooring and painting the walls, in addition to decorating with furniture and art.

One of the easiest ways to redecorate a room is by installing carpet, hardwood floors, or other flooring options. Carpeting a room is especially effective when you want to convey a feeling of warmth and comfort. When buying carpet, it is important to choose a color that is complementary to the walls and furniture, as well as the right texture for the level of activity in that room. When buying carpet for high-traffic rooms like living rooms and hallways, it is important to purchase loop carpeting or carpet with short pile. Plush carpets show footprints more easily, and are better for areas like formal dining rooms.

If buying carpet to match decor sounds too much like interior design, consider installing hardwood flooring. Hardwood flooring is easy to coordinate with any decorative style, and is durable enough for the highest traffic areas. Hardwood flooring comes in a variety of textures and stains, and can be installed in almost any room of the house. Because it is susceptible to water damage, hardwood flooring is not recommended for kitchens, bathrooms, basements, or laundry rooms.

With a new paint job and floor covering, any room can be transformed from boring to brilliant. No matter how you prefer to floor the room, be it by carpeting, installing hardwoods, or adding a totally different floor like linoleum, you are sure to demonstrate your personal taste, whether the floor matches the paint or not.
