Avoiding Mistakes When Choosing Hardwood Flooring

Choosing new hardwood flooring for your home is both enjoyable and stressful. The thought of a fresh new home update is exciting — but sometimes the amount of choices can be a bit overwhelming. Hardwood flooring is an investment, and you don’t want to make a mistake. Luckily, our experts have put together a few tips to ensure your decision process goes as smoothly as possible. 

Engineered or Solid Hardwood?

One of the biggest mistakes people make is choosing a hardwood based on aesthetics alone. Style is of course important, but it’s necessary to remember that each type of hardwood is different, and serves varying purposes better. You’ll need to consider solid hardwood versus engineered hardwood. Our Flooring Experts will be able to discuss the fine details with you to ensure you select the perfect flooring for your home, while simultaneously reducing any future problems.

What species is right for me?

You may not know that certain wood species are more durable than others. Choosing a floor that fits your home is vital to ensure the longevity of your floors. Take into consideration the amount of traffic in your home, as well as the lifestyle you lead. There are countless styles and species to choose from and our Flooring Experts will be happy to provide their invaluable insight and advice.

Styles and Textures

Another consideration is board width and texture. Traditional strip hardwood can create an illusion of more space, while thick planks lend themselves well to a more rustic design aesthetic.  Keep in mind hand scraped, wire brushed and distressed textures may be better for busy households rather than a smooth texture as they will hide minor nicks and scrapes that will occur over time.

From start to finish, the knowledge and expertise of Rite Rug is at your disposal. Our Flooring Experts can guide you through every step of the decision process, ensuring you’re left with beautiful and practical hardwood flooring you can enjoy for years to come.

How To Use Pantone’s Color of 2017 In Your Home

Each year The Pantone Color Institute chooses a color that they believe represents the times. For 2017, they’ve named “Greenery 15-0343” the color of the year. This warm, vivacious color symbolizes energy and new beginnings.

Pantone explains: "Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature's greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate."

But now that we’re oxygenated and reinvigorated — how do we incorporate this unique color into our home design? It’s certainly a departure from the cool greys and clean whites that we’re used to.

Pantone calls “Greenery” “nature’s neutral” — a hue more typically used during spring and summer, but one they see as a statement color year round. Surprisingly, it’s actually easier to incorporate this out of the box color than you might think.

Accent Decor

This spring, consider swapping out your usual accent pillows for a pop of “Greenery.” A quick visit to your local home store can bring a big change to the feel of your family room. Even less of a commitment — try out “Greenery” when shopping for a new cozy throw blanket. A nice pop of color when you want, and easily tucked away when you’re feeling a more traditionally neutral vibe.

Plants

What better way to incorporate “Greenery” than with actual greenery? A classic succulent is always a fresh way to add a bit of color to your space. Whether it be real or faux, a sweet succulent in a fabulous pot can be the much needed change you’ve been looking for. 

Area Rugs

Area rugs are an easy and impactful way to introduce new colors into your space. A bold rug can help make a colorful statement, anchor a seating area, and soften a hardwood floor. At Rite Rug we can create the perfect custom area rug for your space. Completely green, or just a touch — your Pantone 2017 spring update is closer than you think.
