Vinyl flooring has come a long way. I don’t know about you, but when I used to hear “vinyl”, I pictured a giant roll of flooring that was white so shiny that you can almost see your reflection in it. Remember? While that does still exist, there are so many more affordable, beautiful options out there to make your space feel like home.

Then there’s the traditional hardwood option. If you want a floor that looks like wood, choose hardwood flooring, right? Not necessarily! While hardwood flooring has also advanced in many ways over the past couple of decades, there are just as many vinyl options that look like wood, these days. That can be a huge benefit to your living space and your pocketbook.

So, what should you consider when you’re in the market for flooring?

●  Vinyl is known for its durability in high traffic areas. It can take a beating without showing wear. Hardwood, on the other hand, is more prone to scratches, dents, scuffs, etc. It is wood, after all.

●  Design. Again, with the developments that have taken place in the world of vinyl flooring, it can be nearly impossible to visually tell the difference between vinyl and hardwood.

●  Cost. Chances are, if you’re in the midst of a renovation, you’re witnessing the cost climb and you dream about dollar signs at night. Vinyl is considerably less expensive than hardwood flooring, which can help you rest a bit easier.

●  Overall wear. Hardwood is susceptible to damage due to moisture – that means humidity in the air too. Ever look at a curved piece of wood and wonder how in the world it ended up like that? Not something you’ll probably want to ponder when it comes to a piece of your floor. Vinyl, on the other hand, is waterproof.

At Minneapolis Contractor’s Choice, we have many choices to fulfill your vinyl flooring dreams! One of our experts can help make your next remodel everything you’ve imagined, of course, at a fraction of the price.

I was reading an article recently about redecorating a staircase. My first thought was, “what a great idea!” It also made me want to remind people that there can be really fun projects where they aren’t routinely considered. I thought about how smaller projects can really dress up a home; they don’t need to be mega-expensive and perhaps don’t even require as much planning as larger projects, but they can really invigorate your entire layout.

The staircase article was a really good example of how important the details of remodeling and redecorating can be. Railings, spindles, and risers are things that many of us don’t even think about, but they can really have a dramatic visual effect. Adding a runner to the stairs, changing carpet, painting the various elements are a little more obvious upgrades that should be considered as well.

The point we’re trying to make is that we should all think outside the box. Sure, remodeling a bathroom or basement is wonderful and can upgrade your home’s value, quality of life, and lifestyle. But, what about simply redoing the flooring of a room or two? Or, how about just changing the facings of your cabinets? Or just your countertops? Think about accessories and allow yourself to change the attitude that your home conveys without a large investment.

We can help!

Our designers deal with projects that range from new construction to bathroom tile. There is no project too big or too small for Minneapolis Contractor’s Choice.

If you choose to do a larger project such as your bathroom, you still need to consider the small details as well as the larger picture. Don’t minimize the effects of drawer hardware, mirror lighting, even the look (as well as the function) of shower heads and faucets.

While we’re discussing bathrooms, a few more things to keep in mind:
-Vanities are a focal point and are often the first impression when entering your bathroom;
-Standards have changed: the old “comfort height” of 32″ is now 36″;
-Consider function in addition to fashion, particularly in your bathroom. As the population ages, things like walk-in tubs are becoming more popular, and it’s always less expensive to add something like that when part of a larger project;
-Don’t forget the walls!
We hope we’ve stirred up your imagination and reminded you that even small changes can make a huge difference!
