Here at Floor Coverings International® of Farmingdale, one of our favorite ways to add pizzazz to your home is with unique new flooring! Although homeowners often stick to classic neutrals when it comes to flooring colors, there are plenty of fun and fresh flooring materials that will make any room more colorful. Read on to learn more about three vibrant flooring options from the experts at Floor Coverings International® of Farmingdale.


While beautiful in its natural hue, cork can easily be stained almost any color. Cork is porous, which means that it absorbs stains exceptionally well and is a dream to walk on! The soft comfort underfoot is great for family homes. The color of stained cork won’t be as bright as is possible with dyed carpet, so if you’re looking for technicolor, don’t choose cork. A colored cork floor is a great way to have fun with your floors without overwhelming the entire room.


Affordable, durable, and easy to maintain, ceramic and porcelain tiles have so much going for them that they are not often recognized for their aesthetic versatility. The recent popularity of wood-look tile is all the evidence you need that tile is the chameleon of the flooring world. From their shape, to their size, to their texture, tiles are unbelievably customizable, so it’s no surprise that they’re available in every color of the rainbow.


Perfect for bringing color and warmth to almost any room, carpet is the winter flooring savior your Western Suffolk home needs. If it’s time to replace the carpet in your home, don’t be afraid to explore your color options! Colorful carpets hide dirt more easily than boring white carpet, plus they’re sure to cheer you up during the winter gloom. Don’t want to replace your beautiful hardwood, but still want to add a pop of color? You can get the look of colored carpet with a patterned area rug. In fact, an area rug is ideal for brightening a room and protecting your floors at the same time.
