Planning Your Flooring Remodeling Project

Over time, all spaces need an upgrade to avoid looking dated and worn. Whether the project involves a renovation to update a room’s wall colors or furnishings or if it requires a more extensive remodel, keeping a space up-to-date is vital to ensuring a home maintains its elegance and functionality. 

Embarking on a remodeling project can be daunting, but not all your design decisions must be complicated. 

Renovation vs. Remodel

Firstly, the difference between “remodel” and “renovation” must be clarified. While the terms are often used interchangeably, they actually mean different things. 

What is a Renovation?

A renovation is a glow-up that leaves a room feeling brand new without making any key structural changes. During a renovation, you might change the furniture, update the lighting, paint the walls, and install new fixtures and appliances. 

A renovation doesn’t usually require any additional specialists such as engineers or architects and is a lighter-duty upgrade. 

What is a Remodel?

A remodel is a more extensive upgrade and often involves changing the room’s purpose. Remodels can be large projects and include changing the structural layout of the room by adding or removing walls. Perhaps your remodel will expand the square footage of the space or include a heavy-duty addition such as new flooring or windows. 

Essentially, a remodel can change the purpose or structure of a room, while a renovation is a more superficial upgrade. 

What to Consider When Remodeling a Room

When considering whether to remodel a space, think about your goals and the purpose of the upgrade. Outlining your expectations for the room’s final look and feel and narrowing down the space’s function and functionality will help you gain a clearer idea of your remodeling needs. 

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What is the purpose of the new space? 
  • What is the aesthetic goal of the room?
  • How user-friendly and versatile will your additions be?
  • What is your budget?

Choosing the Best Material When Remodeling Your Floors

Aesthetically and functionally, flooring is a crucial part of any space and deserves regular upkeep and modernization. New flooring will provide a necessary refresh if your room looks somewhat dated. 

Choosing new flooring isn’t a fly-by-night decision. However, having answers to the above questions should help you narrow down your options. 

When it comes to flooring, the functionality of a space is the pivotal factor. If you’re remodeling a high-traffic area of the house or one exposed to wet feet, muddy paws, or anything damaging, you’ll want to steer clear of “delicate” options such as wood and parquet. Tiles and quarried stone pavers are also at risk of damage and can cause an extra headache as they’re tricky to repair or replace. 

Regarding your budget, avoid the more costly options such as marble, quarried stone pavers, ceramic tiles, and exotic hardwood flooring. In fact, high cost and low durability are synonymous with many flooring options. 

Handcrafted concrete pavers are low-effort in terms of maintenance. They’re durable and weather-resistant, so they are suitable for all areas of the home. Whether you’re remodeling one room or the whole house, their versatility makes them an easy addition to any space. They’re excellent value, offering beautiful and uniquely crafted pavers at an affordable price. 

Available in several colors, shapes, and sizes, luxury concrete pavers will fit your design idea and enhance your home with their timeless elegance.
