The summer season provides new energy and is a great opportunity for you to plan your next home improvement project. One big step in the planning process involves having a clear idea of what you want. It can be hard to imagine what the best type of flooring will be for your home which is why creating a mood board can help. Mood boards are collages of ideas, words, and images that inspire. This visual organizational tool allows you to play around with different ideas and give you a sense of how your home will look with the new changes. At Floor Coverings International® of Waukesha, our team of experts will guide you every step of the way.

Hardwood Floor - Planning - Floor Coverings InternationalStep 1: Brainstorm Your Ideal Space

You want to be in a space that inspires you to create. When it comes to reimaging your new space, there should be no limits. Here are some great questions to consider during the planning phase:

  • How do you want your space to feel? Calming? Energizing? Cozy? Open?
  • What colors are best in accomplishing these moods? Warmer tones? Cooler hues?
  • What is the main purpose of the room or space? Entertaining? Working?
  • What flooring type would work best for the room? Hardwood? Carpeting? Vinyl?

Next, attach words associated with the style, and colors you’ve chosen such as minimalist, contemporary, modern, etc.

Step 2: Collect Sources of Inspiration and Materials

Once you have your plan outlined, it’s time to collect materials for your board. If you are going with a traditional mood board, you’ll want to collect paper or poster board, scissors, glue, and cut-outs. You can collect words, images, and quotes that resonate with your style from books, magazines, and images you’ve downloaded from online. If you’re creating a digital board you can collect images and simply paste them into a document. Need flooring samples? We can offer you various flooring samples to help with your planning.

Step 3: Assemble and Experiment with Layout

Take time to play around with the layout of your board as well as the layout you envision in your home. Rearrange as much as you need to. Test how different flooring types fit into the space until you’re happy with the results.

Step 4: Curate the Perfect Space

Once you’re happy with your mood board it’s time to finalize the design. Hang up your board so you can keep referring to it.
