Here at Floor Coverings International, we know our customers are always looking for ways to update their homes. We’ve put together a list of some home updates that make a big impact. Read on to learn more! 


A new coat of paint can instantly transform a room. Fresh paint will make any room seem updated and fresh, even if it’s the only thing you’ve changed. Paint isn’t permanent and it’s inexpensive compared to most major home updates, so it gives you the freedom to experiment. Go bold and play with color by painting an accent wall (or an entire room!) a bright hue. If you prefer a more muted look, try painting stripes alternating a matte and glossy finish of the same color. The options are endless when it comes to paint!


New floors are a great investment because the right flooring can make a room seem larger, brighter and more modern. New flooring is also appealing to potential homebuyers, which is important to consider if you’re planning to sell your home in the near future. When choosing new floors for a room, you should consider the overall look you are going for. Dark hardwood floors are dramatic and elegant, while plush carpet is comfortable and cozy. Flooring isn’t as easy to change as paint (and it’s more expensive), so do your research and choose a flooring option that fits your lifestyle and your design taste.


The entrance to your home is the first thing people see when they arrive. A well-designed entrance (both inside and out) will make a big impact and set the tone for the rest of your home. Think about what updates you can make for a grand entryway, both small and large. New lighting and lighting fixtures will make your entryway more welcoming – and safer. If your front door has seen better days, consider investing in a new one. Alternatively, repaint your front door a bright color that contrasts with the color of your house. We love a turquoise door against a light grey house, or a mauve door against a beige house. Also look into updating the plants and shrubbery around your front entrance, or at the very least, trim back any overgrown plants or flowers.

We hope you found this post helpful as you brainstorm ideas for updating your home. If you’re ready for new floors, contact Floor Coverings International of Concord, CA today!
