Flooring is an integral part of every home. It is easily seen, needs to handle a lot of traffic each day, and influences the rest of your interior design. You have many choices when it comes to selecting a floor covering. Choices include both hard and soft options, as well as resilient, natural, and sustainable materials. The area you are covering, your interior design, and your personal preferences all go into making a flooring or carpeting choice that works for your home.
For these reasons, there is often a wide range of associated costs with flooring. Even in one category, such as carpet, you can have a wide range of materials, styles, colors, depths, and associated costs.
Flooring professionals may include tile installers, wood flooring installers, or carpet installers, which can also impact final costs. Flooring installation is usually done by the square foot and can range from $5 to $20 a square foot, depending on the material and area being covered.
