The Hardwood vs. Carpet Debate

Choosing new flooring for your home can be a daunting task. The amount of available flooring options makes it difficult to make even simple decisions, such as whether wood or carpet is the best option for you. Although both hardwood and carpet are great, it is important to pick the most practical option for your lifestyle.

Wood floors are a great option if you are looking for a warm and sophisticated feel for your home. They make for easy clean-up and require little maintenance. Wood matches just about everything, making it the ideal choice if you change your style frequently. You can change the colors of your walls or your furniture as often as you’d like, and the floors will still look great!

Need to mix up the style of your floor? You can always add an area rug to spice things up or sand and stain your hardwood floors for a fresh new look! To top it off, hardwood floors are long-lasting and add value to your home.

Carpet on the other hand, gives your home a comfortable and welcoming feeling. There is a wide variety of options, making it easy to find the perfect carpet to fit your lifestyle and taste. Carpet is a safer option for households with kids, as it is more fall-proof and more comfortable for sitting, working, or playing on the floor. Carpet can now be recycled, making these sustainable products better for the environment!

Both wood and carpet flooring look great in a home! They both work as good insulators and can help reduce allergens. There is no one type of flooring that is better than the other, but there may however, be a certain type of flooring that is better suited to you!

4 Trends for the Fall Season

With fall upon us, it’s time to start thinking about new décor for your home that will match the season. From incorporating new colors into your interiors, to a complete overhaul, we have the 4 hottest color trends of the current season.

1) Transition with Orange

Orange is the color of both summer and fall, so this color is great as a transition between the warm and cool months. Bring the color to your space through the use of throw pillows, blankets, or simple décor.

2) Get Cozy with Cognac Brown

Cognac is the perfect shade of brown to incorporate into your interiors this fall, as the cozy color adds rich warmth to your space. Use it on your walls, in a leather headboard or chairs, or in an area rug.

3) Add in a Soft Yellow

A soft shade of yellow is a great choice for transitioning from bright summer to cool fall. A lighter yellow is more reminiscent of the warm sun, while a deeper yellow is reflective of fall. Either as accent pieces or a new color for your walls, there is a shade of yellow that is perfect for your home!

4) Add Rich Red To Your Room

Red, the color that combines the brightness of summer with the richness of fall is great to bring into your home if you haven’t already done so. It’s a fabulous option for furniture or your walls, and in a more subdued manner, red is a wonderful color for your throw pillows and blankets.
