Recently a customer came in our store wanting to look at tile for her bathroom. She confessed she felt a little overwhelmed to see all the tile selections because she had no clue what she wanted or even were to start. You may have felt this way before. Some start a project with a very vivid idea of what they want, but a lot of people need direction and guidance. Having a more specific idea of what you want can make your home project more enjoyable as you see your ideas coming to fruition. The question is, “How do I get inspired?”
The internet is a great place to find home décor and renovation blogs, and you’re already off to a great start by reading ours! Home and décor blogs often cover many subjects that can help you get inspiration for your design projects. Here are some of our favorite sites:

While you’re browsing for inspiration, figuring out the color scheme you'd like to use in your space can help narrow down your choices. Look for pictures with your chosen hue to help you get a visual of your future space. Pictures and color schemes can help you draw ideas together. If you’re not really sure what your décor style is, try this quiz from HGTV to find your design personality.
Keep in mind that the perfect flooring provides the perfect foundation for the rest of your home. When you’re ready to go shopping, bring your pictures, color swatches, and anything else that inspires you so that our flooring experts can help you find the right flooring for your project. We have a wide selection of samples that you can take home and “preview” so that you can find the one that suits your whole vision for your home.
Finally, remember that your home should be a reflection of you, your personality and style. Don’t design your home around a look you hate just because it’s trendy or popular. Find what makes you comfortable and happy to be at home!
