5 Tips for Home Renovations during COVID

We’re all spending more time at home during the COVID-19 crisis, as we make the choice to self-isolate, protect those we love and flatten the curve.


Many of our clients at Local Flooring Group have had the chance to hit the pause button, take a look around and assess how they want to feel and live in their home. After weeks of cooking every meal in our kitchens, some have realized it’s time for an update – new tile backsplash or updated flooring. Some have been inspired to change the mood in their living spaces: adding more calm to their home-study using rustic vinyl plank flooring or brightening their bathroom with blue subway tiles.


Take a look around! What could use a style or functional update in your living space? Now is the perfect time for simple updates, like a fresh tile backsplash, accent wall or new luxury vinyl plank flooring. Choose projects that won’t need permit approval or professional assistance, but can be completed with some local guidance and elbow grease.


So, what’s next? Where do you start? We’ve compiled a few tips to navigate your COVID-19 renovation project in Saskatoon.


  1. Start Dreaming First

Start looking for inspiration online! Consider what draws your attention and why. What colours and designs do you keep going back to? What mood would you like to match for your space?


Check out the Local Flooring Groups Instagram and Facebook for examples of design mood boards, completed renovations and new and featured patterns and textures. Check out the Local Flooring product page  to view our in-stock tile and vinyl plank pricing that can transform your home in style and on-budget.


  1. Get a Hands-on Look at Samples

You’ll want to see how a product looks in your home. Discover the look and feel of the tile or luxury vinyl flooring you’re eyeing for your living space by requesting samples. Run your fingers over your flooring samples to see how they feel. Place flooring or tile samples near a window in the room that you want to redecorate and observe them as the daylight changes. 


Local Flooring Group is delivering samples and product completely contactless, for free to your doorstep. Get in touch if there is a product you would like to see and feel, and check out our current stock. Find more tips to get the most out of your flooring samples here.
