Many people treat floors as an afterthought when decorating or simply settle for what's already there, but floors actually have a great influence on a room and can even have the power to create the room's overall feeling. By appealing to the senses--the warmth of carpet, the scent of wood, the coolness of tile, the nuances of color and pattern--floors impart much to any space. Floor Magic explains in detail how to select and maintain flooring that best suits your room and your style. Whether your preferences run to stone, ceramics, mosaic, wood, carpet, sheet flooring, or even to more unusual floor materials such as concrete, metal, or glass, this thorough guide "covers" it all.
