LAFAYETTE — Redecorating your home can be a daunting enterprise, especially if you have no idea where to start. One of the best things you can do to get the ball rolling is visit a flooring showroom. This will give you a chance to survey the various product options and get guidance from experienced flooring specialists.

When you visit a flooring showroom, it’s a good idea to bring samples of the colors and textures in your home, such as paint and fabric swatches. These kinds of “color cues” can serve as a basis from which to create a fresh design scheme.

However, if you want to start from scratch and choose all-new colors and fabrics, your home’s existing swatches and fabrics won’t be of much help. In this instance, your best bet is to bring in elements of your current home décor that won’t be changing, like artwork or framed photographs. Using these, a flooring specialist can help you find corresponding colors and build a new design scheme for your home.
