Our discussion questions:

  1. When does a flooring decision come into the design process? How important is it in your designing process?
  2. How often do you use soft surface flooring (carpets, area rugs, etc.) vs. hard surface flooring? Why?
  3. What specifications do you look for in bathroom flooring? What do you find works well?
  4. What is your preferred product for kitchen flooring?
  5. Floors are an important part of the kitchen. How do you convince your clients to invest in an upgrade in flooring to accommodate the lifestyle of the family?
  6. How do you educate your client to support the choice of flooring
  7. According to the NKBA, flooring accounts for approximately 7% of a kitchen remodeling budget. How does this relate to your projects? Does flooring take up more of the budget? Less? – how do you factor that into your kitchen proposal/flooring budget?
  8. If budget were no object, what type of flooring would you choose for a kitchen project? A bath? Share photos of your favorite floors from your projects!
