Do NOT pick your paint color first. There are thousands of paint colors to choose from. Start where you have the fewest choices and build from there. This may be the flooring, but sometimes it is something you cannot or do not want to change, like a piece of furniture, artwork, a stone fireplace, etc. We see so many clients that wait until after they have made all their other purchases and then come in to find the perfect floor. This can be mission impossible: over budget, limited options, and extreme frustration. Avoid this problem by selecting your flooring early in the process.
