When embarking on a home design project, one of the first things you will want to consider is the atmosphere you want to project. The type of flooring you select can go a long way in determining the look and feel of any room. Many customers visit our showroom located in the heart of Long Island clutching pages from home furnishing magazines and show our specialists the style of floor they are hoping to emulate.

What many customers sometimes don’t realize is the breadth and scope of flooring options available to them since there are many types to choose from. This is where our design specialists step in. They walk customers through our custom built showroom and present the many varieties of flooring that can offer a certain look based on their budget and how much space they need to cover.

Chevron: Some people like to choose a Chevron style which is made with wood planks that feature the ends cut at an angle. When the installation is done by our seasoned professionals, the boards are fitted together to form a distinct inverted V pattern. This works well in large spaces that can really show off this intricate look.

Herringbone: To help small rooms appear larger, our flooring contractors sometimes recommend the use of a herringbone floor. It offers a more traditional look and can complement other flooring you already have in your home.

Vinyl Plank: Sometimes homeowners are seeking flooring that is durable and easy to care for. Since it is waterproof and scratch resistant, it’s a great option for busy families with small children and pets.

Parquet: For customers who are looking for something more elegant, parquet flooring is popular as it consists of geometric patterns made up of multiple, specifically placed wooden panels.

Call us to make an appointment with one of our design specialists and see which of our many flooring options will work for you.
