Renovation Tip #7: Flooring


Too many different types of flooring in the main space of a home can create a disjointed and chaotic feeling, so we recommend using the same flooring throughout the main living area. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t use different flooring in other rooms! In some cases, we like to use carpet in the bedrooms to cut down on costs, and tile or vinyl in the bathroom(s) or laundry room to add character!

5338 Fillinger Cres · Nanaimo, BC · The original kitchen had linoleum flooring, the living room was carpeted, and the downstairs suite had outdated vinyl flooring. We unified the entire home by using consistent high-end vinyl throughout the main living areas on both floors, and in this case, in all the bedrooms, as well. Look how clean and open the space looks!



5961 Sealand Rd · Nanaimo, BC · In this rancher, we opened up the living room, dining room, and kitchen to create an open-concept floor plan. We then created a unified space with the luxury vinyl flooring that runs throughout these spaces. The transformation was incredible, and the home was almost unrecognizable after our renovation!



Whether you tackle the flooring yourself or hire a contractor to do the work - by simplifying the flooring and making smart choices you can create a cohesive space and save money!
