When it comes to building your dream custom home, every detail counts. From the architectural design to the wall colors, and especially the flooring, each element plays a vital role in creating your perfect space. Flooring is not just a functional element; it’s a design decision that can truly transform the look and feel of your home. Here at Meg & Co., we understand the importance of selecting the right flooring for your space. We’ve compiled all of our favorite tips and brands to help make the choice easy!
Choosing the Right Flooring for Your Custom Home
The type of flooring you choose should align with your lifestyle, budget, and design preferences. Aesthetic appeal is crucial, but functionality is equally important. Think about how you’ll use the space, whether you have children or pets, and your willingness to commit to maintenance.
We often work with hardwood floors or engineered wood flooring, as we believe in the timeless beauty and quality these materials bring to a space. However, we more than understand that these types of flooring don’t work for every budget and lifestyle! That’s why we also recommend LVP as a practical and cost-effective alternative. It has come a long way in terms of quality and can stand up to the challenges of active families, thanks to its durability and waterproof features.
At Meg & Co, we generally recommend neutral flooring choices. Neutral colors are a popular choice that provides a versatile canvas for your decor and are less likely to clash with changing design trends. They also create a sense of continuity throughout your home. It’s a smart choice that ensures your home remains stylish and adaptable over the years.
