Choose Flooring that Fits Your Lifestyle


We’ve put together a quick list of possible options to kick-start your creative processes. Remember, though: you’re only limited by your own imagination.

Berber in the Boudoir

Who wants to wake up on a chilly Tennessee morning and plant their feet on an icy floor? Berber in your bedroom can provide both comfort and durability. This modern-style carpet isn’t just for high-traffic commercial spaces. If you have kids or pets (or both), you know that your bedroom isn’t out of the danger zone for spills, messes and other mayhem.

Of course, you don’t have to go for Berber to enjoy the comfort of carpet; there are literally dozens of styles available. While carpet may be the answer for some rooms, it has its drawbacks. It’s not as easy to clean as hardwoods are, and it traps dust, pet dander and other contaminants that can irritate allergies or asthma.

Hardwood Heaven

Thousands of homebuyers opt for hardwood floors every day because they’re extremely durable. When you give them the TLC they need, they’ll last a lifetime. If you don’t mind the upkeep, hardwoods can be the perfect choice.

According to the experts, you should dust your hardwood floors daily, clean them weekly and polish them quarterly. Frequent dust-mopping using a microfiber material helps to keep dust and dirt off your floors, prevents scratching and reduces allergens.

Time for Tile

If carpet isn’t your “thing,” and hardwood maintenance is a little too much, tile is the old standby. It’s available in a huge variety of styles, which means you can pick ceramic, marble, slate or just about anything else. It’s generally low-maintenance and ideal for high-traffic areas.
