Flooring Options Set the Tone for Your New Home

February 5, 2021

Floors are the foundation of your home and set the tone for your color palette and design style. Choosing your floors should not be a snap decision.  It is important that you let the Grant Design Studio Consultants guide you through the many options in our Design Studio.


Design trends will come and go but good hardwood floors will last for many years and never go out of style.  Not only are wood floors durable, but they also stand the test of time.  Whether you plan on staying in your new home forever or for just a few years, wood flooring is an excellent investment.  That’s why hardwood is a popular choice in new homes.The Grant Design Studio features hardwood flooring by Rivertree Hardwoods and offers many colors, styles and plank widths.  From the rich browns of traditional hardwood to the lighter more natural shades of gray, the Grant Design Studio offers homeowners a chance to see what hardwood best suits their décor and living style.


With so many styles, colors and patterns to choose from, it is no mystery why carpeting remains one of the most popular flooring options for many new homeowners.  Choosing the right carpet will provide comfort, durability and beauty far into the future.  When visiting the Grant Design Studio, you are invited to bring swatches of fabric from drapes and furniture, wallpaper samples, and paint chips with you when you are selecting carpet. That way you can consider a range of colors that will match your personal style and décor. Remember that color can also affect your mood. Warmer colors often make you feel energized while cooler tones provide a sense of calm.Although the carpet in our Design Studio is stain resistant, for those with pets it might be a good idea to choose an optional “pet carpet pad” to further protect your carpet.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring 

A new option in 2021 to the Grant Design Studio is Luxury Vinyl Flooring.  After hearing from homebuyers looking for top quality highly resilient flooring, Grant added this option giving homebuyers choices for LVT flooring that offers the durability they were seeking in floors that are difficult to distinguish from wood plank flooring.  

Tile Flooring

Nothing beats beautiful tile floors in bathrooms and laundry rooms.  Easy to maintain and extremely durable, tile flooring offers more visual options than ever before.  The grout can also provide a visual element with various colors and shades available. Extremely durable and water resistant, tile is a great flooring choice for high-traffic areas and for kitchens and bathrooms.

The Grant Builders (Rick and Shane) were excellent. They walked through the entire home and was not distracted by the ringing phones and text messaging. Any issue they found they followed up and explained it. They were very detailed in their walkthrough.
