What to Know About Home Flooring Installation

Grand Rapids Hardwood Flooring

Installing new floors in your Grand Rapids home is a big decision that can increase its value and aesthetic appeal. However, before starting a home improvement project of this scale, it’s important that you have all the facts about the process.

At Complete Flooring & Interiors, our experienced flooring contractors make it our mission to help Grand Rapids homeowners get ready for the next step. If you are planning on installing new floors for your home, this guide will come in handy. Below are some of the major things you should know before scheduling your next floor installation.

It will disrupt your daily schedule

During the flooring installation process, keep in mind that our flooring experts will have to walk through part of your home to get to the room that needs renovation. For example, if our team is installing a new hardwood floors for the master bedroom, we will most likely have to walk through the living room and hallway while carrying supplies.

The extent of disruption to your normal schedule will depend on the area of your home being renovated. For example, if you are putting down new vinyl flooring for your kitchen floors, you will not be able to prepare meals in that room until the project is complete. At Complete Flooring & Interiors, our interior design team understand that home flooring installation can be an inconvenience. This is why we hire only the most professional designers who have the experience to create high quality results. A well-crafted floor is well worth the wait.

You may have to stay somewhere else during installation for large-scale projects

If you are having multiple rooms renovated at the same time, you may want to consider staying with family or in a hotel until the remodeling project is complete. However, this doesn’t have to be a complete inconvenience. We have had clients plan out family outings or vacations to coincide with the timelines of their projects. That way, they could avoid the inconvenience of flooring installation and get in some quality family time. During the flooring installation process, you can also choose to stay in your home. Each client’s situation is different.

You may want to reconsider DIY

Many homeowners consider installing new flooring themselves. However, at Complete Flooring & Interiors, we don’t recommend doing flooring installation yourself unless you have the necessary experience. If you are interested in the idea of saving money through DIY, also consider that it costs money to fix any mistakes made during the floor remodel process. For professional results, it is usually best to hire professional flooring installers.
