A Flooring Guide Room by Room

You want to transform your home with updated flooring but choosing the right floor based on usage can be a difficult decision. Whether you are planning to replace the flooring in your kitchen, living room, bathroom, or basement, there is a solution to meet all of your needs – from high traffic areas, to pet-friendly options.

Your choice of flooring is one of the most important decisions you have to make when it comes to improving your home, so you want to be sure you’re making the right one. Here’s a brief overview of the different types of flooring and where they can be installed.

Hardwood flooring is a natural, timeless option with lasting durability. Hardwood can be installed in most rooms of your home. However, it isn’t recommended in bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements, or other areas with high humidity. The best places for hardwood flooring includes main living areas, hallways, and kitchens.

Engineered wood flooring is made from a laminate construction and provides excellent durability. The top veneer is real wood, so it has wood’s natural warmth and beauty. It is suitable for basement remodeling in St. Louis, and other areas of the home with high humidity.

Laminate flooring is designed to look and feel like wood or high-end stone but is available on a practical budget. You can install this type of flooring almost anywhere including bathrooms, kitchens, mud rooms, foyers, dining rooms, living rooms, family rooms, and bedrooms. Laminate is designed to withstand everyday wear from most household activities.

At JM Construction/JM Kitchen and Bath, we have over 25 years of experience with installing floors throughout the St. Louis area. Allow us to help you with the design process, where you’ll choose everything from color, texture, pattern, and material for your new floors.

Fall Home Reno Projects

Fall is the perfect time to complete home improvements that you’ve been meaning to get to but keep putting off for one reason or another. Whether you’ve been dreaming of updating your kitchen cabinets and counters, overhauling the first-floor powder room, or you’ve always wanted custom trim and millwork in the living and dining rooms, now is the time. Get started today, and you can have these projects wrapped up before winter and the holidays arrive.

Kitchen Remodeling
After a summer of barbecuing and dining al fresco, it’s nice to bring the cooking and dining inside once again. Whether you’re looking for a full kitchen remodel or to make small changes over time, there are things you can do to give your kitchen an improved look. You can replace or paint the kitchen cabinets, update hardware, resurface dated countertops, or install your dream kitchen island to start.

Bathroom Remodeling
Bathrooms are one of the most overlooked rooms in the house when it comes to updates, as people tend to focus on the kitchen or living room. But it shouldn’t be. It doesn’t take a lot to improve a powder room. Replace the vanity, sink, and mirror; update tile and wall sconce lighting; or add a fresh coat of paint all without breaking the bank.

Basement Remodeling
Due to the cooler weather, everyone will be spending their free time indoors. With a house full of kids, it’s important for them – and you – to have their own space to hang out and relax. Or, if you’re looking for more entertainment space a wet bar, game room, or home theater are perfect basement additions.

Bright and Fresh Basement Laundry Upgrade

If you’re fortunate enough to have a conveniently located, spacious second-floor laundry room, count yourself lucky! However, if you’re like the majority of people who have to schlep the dirty clothes to a dark and dingy basement, then laundry probably isn’t your favorite chore. Unfortunately, we can’t do much about the piles of never-ending clothes or the fact that you always seem to forget to move them from the washer into the dryer promptly, but we can help to make the task slightly more enjoyable with a chic laundry room makeover.

With over 25 years of experience in renovating basements, JM Construction/JM Kitchen and Bath is the right choice for basement remodeling in St. Louis. We’ll help turn your dull laundry space into a fresh and bright room that might even make washing clothes enjoyable.

Laundry room upgrade ideas:
Start with Lighting: Brighten your space to make it more modern and stylish with upgraded lighting.
Cabinet Upgrade: If you’re lucky enough to have cabinet space in your laundry room it’s a great space saver to modify lower cabinets with laundry baskets.
Add Storage Space: Just because you don’t have room for cabinets doesn’t mean you can’t have additional storage space. Add floating shelves, or a unit fastened to the back of the door to store your laundry essentials.
Folding Table: Having a stacked washer and dryer means no spot for folding clothes. Installing a wall mounted folding table is the perfect solution.

Improving the look and efficiency of your laundry room won’t make the clothes wash themselves, but at least the room you’re doing the laundry in will be pretty.
