How to Select Wood

How to select wood flooring

Wood flooring is a long-term investment, and can transform your space and even add value to your home. Before you choose, know whether you have a subfloor or concrete, or if the wood flooring will be upstairs or in the basement. Consider what your floor needs to withstand to keep its natural beauty, and think about whether you’re okay with the construction process in your home, or if you’d prefer pre-finished floors.

How to Select Laminate

Messner only sells laminate flooring that meets our quality standards, so you can't go wrong! We sell Armstrong flooring in 8 and 12 mm thickness, providing good coverage for flawed floors and superior performance for for active families. Choose between a rustic or polished look, or even beveling to resemble wood planks. Armstrong provides a range of product warranties, from 20 years to lifetime. Also, consider moisture and sound when choosing your padding. All the padding we offer provides excellent sound resistance, and we also offer a pad that serves as a moisture barrier. Our team can help you select the laminate that is right for your family.

How to Select Vinyl

Vinyl flooring is available in countless styles, and is available in sheets, planks, and tiles. Are you putting your vinyl flooring into a bathroom? Avoid seams by using sheet vinyl or grouted vinyl tile. Do you spend a lot of time in your kitchen? Consider a cushioned product that's softer under foot. Hate clean-up? All our vinyl is no-wax flooring, and our grout is non-staining for easy care, and the better the finish, the easier to clean. Come to our showroom to explore the look and feel of our great selection of vinyl flooring.

How to Select Tile

The looks that can be achieved with tile are truly limitless. Where to begin? Think about whether you need some traction underfoot, if the area will be exposed to stains and moisture, and if you are going for vibrant color, natural hues, a rustic or an elegant look. Messner has tile choices to spark your creativity! To learn about the various types of tile, click below.

How to Select Rugs

How to select rugs

Rugs are generally chosen by what style appeals to the buyer, but some rugs work better than others in certain environments. Do you need a rug that can be easily cleaned? Do you want something that is durable, soft underfoot, or both? Are you interested in an investment, or will you change your mind -- a lot? Messner has over 300 rugs in our gallery, in all price ranges and with new styles coming in all the time.
