Consider the long-term use of your floors and how it will fit your life style in later life. It’s important. When remodeling, work to eliminate height differences between rooms/areas and to solve height changes between rooms. This will help remove possible tripping hazards and improve the visual flow of your home.
When planning new floors, if you use the same flooring on an upper level, a step and lower level, plan to use a contrasting nosing along the edge of the level change and even “frame the step with contrasting material. This helps the eye realize the level changes. It will help keep visitors from slipping off the edge of an upper level. You can see this in our photo gallery“.
