Home Design: Finding The Perfect Hardwood Floors

When I was a little girl, I would often go through one of my mother’s catalogs and pick and choose my dream home furnishings or designs. I shudder at the thought of some of my choices back then. I’ve lived in so many homes and have done so many renovations and have gone through so many design options, that I feel like a have a good grasp of what I really love and how I’d love my “forever” home to look like.

Home design and renovation can be both exhilarating and exhausting, but I still love it none the less. There are just so many choices out there. Take flooring for example, there’s carpet (our current situation), hardwood, concrete, tile, etc. etc. etc. My favorite is definitely hardwood and I am leaning towards the maple variety in a color that is not too dark and not too light. I’ve rounded some examples for when the time comes for us to move into our “forever” home. Have you done any home design/renovations? What is your favorite type of flooring?
