Deck the Halls: New Flooring for the Holidays




Looking to spruce up your home for the holidays? One great way to do so is to install new flooring. Attractive floor coverings help set the tone for a room, lending comfort, function, and style. There are great options available, from beautiful hardwoods or luxurious carpeting, to the striking and durable luxury vinyl flooring. Whether you are looking to revitalize a room, create a subtle, inviting backdrop, or make a bold accent statement, there are great selections from which to choose.


Here are our top flooring picks for this holiday season:




Nothing softens up a space like new carpeting. Available in a gorgeous array of hues from soft neutrals to vivid shades, it adds instant warmth to any room. Carpet, with its fabulous assortment of piles, textures, and environmentally friendly fibers, adds depth and character. Don’t forget its noise reduction qualities, too. Recent technology has made it even simpler to clean, so it’s family and pet friendly, and easier on the budget than you might think.

Hardwood flooring not only offers great practical features, such as an attractive and easy to clean surface, but it promises durability and longevity too. It’s hard to beat the rich, natural character that hardwoods lend to a space. With depth and a unique personality, hardwood flooring helps finish your rooms with classic style. It’s a timeless and elegant backdrop for furnishings, wall colors, fixtures, and décor.


You’ll find additional reasons why we’re fans of hardwood in this post, where we discuss one of our favorite lines, Somerset Flooring.


Luxury Vinyl Flooring


Refreshing the interior of your home is a snap with luxury vinyl flooring. These floor coverings are not only attractive, but resilient and designed to stand up to all kinds of foot traffic. Made of high quality and environmentally friendly materials, they come in an assortment of colors and styles. For example, among our favorite vinyl brands is COREtec by US Floors, which offers the look of hardwood and the benefits of vinyl. Luxury vinyl suits any space, commercial or residential, and works well in kitchen and dining rooms, bedrooms and bath, as well as offices, mudrooms, laundry areas, and basements.

Metallic Epoxy


If the flooring choices above aren’t quite what you’re looking for, perhaps a new finish with metallic epoxy is the way to go. What exactly is it? It’s a unique metallic additive that adds pigment to clear epoxy finishes used on floors in most any living area. For instance, it’ll suit a kitchen or bath, office, hallway, recreational rooms, garages, showrooms, salons, and workshops. This bold three dimensional finish offers a distinctive look that brings personality to an otherwise boring floor space. For home or business, it’ll add function and sparkle to spaces big and small.


We offer a more detailed overview as well as a sampling of metallic epoxy’s vibrant colors in our recent post, Make Floors Sparkle with Metallic Epoxy.


With so many choices to suit your lifestyle, furnishings, and décor, new flooring is a wise investment in one of your biggest assets – your home. It’s a great way to welcome your guests and usher in the holiday season.
