What is the most overlooked aspect of interior design? 

During our daily scan of social media, we came across a post with this exact question. It was accompanied by a slew comments from interior designers and the general population. While one might think the answer could be “storage”, interestingly enough the “front entry” and “flooring” were the two most repeated answers.

What makes this so fascinating is that flooring in any home or commerical building is the one component that sees the most traffic. Therefore, it would be wise to consider the advantages and disadvantages to various flooring options, including hardwood flooring, wide plank flooring, engineered flooring, vinyl flooring, tiles, carpets… yes, you get the picture!
