Flooring is more than just a surface upon which to place your furniture and walk from one point to another in your home. It is an integral part of the decor as well as the overall feel and function of the room. After all, there’s a reason that you don’t just use a big piece of plywood on your living room floor, or just scatter gravel in your entryway!

These days, there are many different kinds of flooring, from woods to laminates, carpets to throw rugs, vinyl to ceramic tile. Each has its own purpose, feel, and style, as well as the final price per square foot. In this section of the interactive Article Gallery, you’ll find out what flooring will suit your style and decor, and learn about rugs and other flooring accents.
