Getting Started

Choosing the right floor plan can make or break your home’s interior decoration themes. With so many factors to consider, including appearance, functionality, quality, maintenance, and durability, getting started can be a daunting and stressful process. Fortunately, the professionals at Galaxie Floor Stores are here to help you every step of the way. Follow these important steps to get started on your flooring selection.

Before You Come to the Store…

Consider. The floor of any room must compliment your own personal style and thematic design. It must also cater to the general function of the room. It is therefore important to think about how you use each room before selecting the flooring you want. For example, if you tend to have a lot of guests for dinner, you will want a more durable flooring selection. However, if you are thinking about a room with very little traffic that you use to relax in on Sunday, a more decorative, or comfortable flooring pattern might be the way to go.

Visualize. Is there an existing theme, or personality that is present in the room, or are you looking to provide the room in question with a completely new feel? Either way you will want to try and visualize the finished room in as much detail as possible so that you know exactly what you are going for. For example, a room with darker colors and not as much light suggests a relaxing atmosphere; where as bright colors and lots of light is more energetic and welcoming.

Look for inspiration. Trying to find new ideas for your home can be hard to do on your own, so it’s best to look for inspiration to help you come up with new ideas that are both personal to you and interesting to your guests. Look in home décor magazines, and check out websites like Pinterest. You can even find inspiration in vacation photos of places you have stayed and really liked, or set decoration ideas from one of your favorite movies. The possibilities really are endless, but we can help you find exactly what you want.
