Starter Homes

For many of us – whether we’re single, married, engaged, have kids/don’t have kids – the American dream is still to own our own home. That first home is typically referred to as a “starter home”.  It’s affordable, often small, and may not have many special features, but it’s perfect to begin life as a homeowner.

Buying a starter home is just the beginning of an exciting adventure! After you’ve found the right place, the next step is to make it yours: with your furniture, your décor, and your style.

That Flooring Has Got to Go!
The first area where you can set the tone for your home is with the flooring. Many older homes have last century’s vinyl floors, which may resemble the vibrant color scheme of an Andy Warhol exhibit or, conversely, offer a far more drab design from a former owner with an eye for design like that of Mr. Magoo. Both styles, of course, are so last century.

If your floor could use a stylish update, consider Armstrong’s vast line of vinyl flooring. Armstrong offers fresh, modern designs to rejuvenate the interior of your home.
