You’re nearly finished with a renovation project with only a few kinks left to figure out. Here’s the big question: which flooring type will look best for your new game room? What sort of stones should you lay in your new entry-hall? What type of wood will give you the best bang for your buck and look snazzy while doing it?

Alas, deciding what sort of flooring you want—from hardwood to stone, ceramic to laminate—is just the tip of the decision-making iceberg.

Say you decide to go with hardwood. Your next question will be: well, what kind of hardwood? Your options vary depending on need. Some hardwoods are more expensive than others. Would you like that in Black Walnut, American Cherry, or Rustic Oak? Perhaps you’re in the mood for a more exotic wood, and opt for a Santos Mahogany, Tigerwood, Tiete Rosewood, or Teak. What if you go for the wood look, but not wood itself? Bamboo is very fashionable these days. The choices seem endless.

After reaching a decision, there are yet even more options. What form of wood you would like to make-up your new living room? Solid is self-explanatory, but what about engineered? Engineered wood has a crisscross shape and can on more weight. Acrylic wood, on the other hand, is ideal if you’re concerned with areas of the floor that see more traffic.

But that’s not all. What sort of material do you envision for your new hardwood. Strips? Planks? Or are you more into geometrical shapes and patterns?

Say you go back to square one and opt for stone over hardwood. The next question would be—you guessed it—what type? Limestone? Granite? Marble?

Each style of flooring has its perks and its fair share of maintenance. Each selection gives the home a statement. Do you want the rooms open and bright or cozy and intimate? Every detail, from décor to floor, works to enhance your home’s look, while providing a platform for Thanksgiving dinners, a play area for the kids, a landing spot for spills, and, well, a place for the ins and outs of life to occur.

You might find these decisions very easy. You might know exactly how you want your home to look. Or you might feel the weight of too many choices and opt to curl up in a corner.
