Picking The Right Flooring For Your Hew Home

When choosing features for your new home, nothing gets more attention than what you’ll put under your feet. The flooring in your home says a lot about you, so be sure and select the best material to suit your needs. Sage Homes offers new home buyers two classic flooring options for its models in Cochrane and Airdrie. So here are a couple of the most popular flooring choices in today’s market that we can provide to you. 


There is no denying the character and natural beauty of wood flooring. With the proper finish, wood can give any room in your new home a classic look and inviting atmosphere. When choosing your wood floor, the endless variations such as type of wood, thickness, pattern, stains and design layout allow you to explore your imagination. The best part about wood is that it never goes out of style because it can be sanded down and refinished without having to replace the entire floor.

Ceramic Tile

A classic flooring choice, ceramic tile has limitless design and style variations that look great anywhere you place it in your home. Choosing tile for your new home can also be an advantage because of its durability in high traffic areas like the laundry room, kitchen and bathrooms. Tile is very low maintenance so water, dirt and other stains are easily removed with the stroke of a broom or mop. And if your tile ever gets damaged, replacing it is easy. Sage Homes offers a variety of tile options to choose from, which makes your home a reflection of personal creativity.
