Step Three: Select your colour tone
As the colour of your new flooring will tie your room together, here are a few questions to keep in mind when selecting your colour tone:
What feeling do you want to create in your space?
What is the hero of your space?
What other colours will be in your space? Do you have a colour scheme in mind?
As most Choices Flooring consultants are trained in interior decoration, they understand colour and can assist you in narrowing down your options.
Once you have your final colour selections, borrow samples from your local Choices Flooring store and place these in your space. View these samples at different times of the day, so you have a good understanding of how light affects each colour tone. This knowledge will assist you in being confident with your final flooring decision.
Step Four: Determine the location of flooring you need
Entrance & Hallway
Bathroom & Laundry
Step Five: Determine how much you want to invest on your flooring purchase
As a general rule, pricing for flooring is displayed and quoted in square metres (m²). Some carpet pricing includes installation, whereas hard flooring, luxury vinyl and tiles do not. If you are unsure of the amount of flooring in square metres that you require, click here to use our floor calculator. Once you know the number of square metres required for your project and have decided on an approximate price you would like to pay per square metre then you can then determine the cost: Example: 75 square metres at $50m² = $3,750
Flooring measurements explained
Hard flooring (timber, bamboo, laminate), luxury vinyl and tiles are priced in square metres (m²) but sold by the carton. These prices do not include sub-floor preparation or installation.
Carpet can only be bought in lineal/broadloom metres which is generally 3.66 or 4 metres wide (e.g. 1 lineal/broadloom metre = 3.66 metres). However, as hard flooring, luxury vinyl and tiles are priced in square metres, carpet prices are generally converted to square metres so a comparison can be made between all flooring options.
Some Choices Flooring stores include installation and other extra services in their carpet pricing, whereas hard flooring, luxury vinyl and tiles do not. Your local Choices Flooring consultant will clarify this for you.
