Before you decide on interior décor elements like flooring, carpets, and shutters, you need to ensure you have your facts right. There are plenty of myths regarding these topics, and as with most myths, it’s best to look at the big picture before believing hearsay blindly. Taking the time to do your research and understanding what works best for you will help you choose the right products for your home. To help you steer clear of basic interior misconceptions, C & J Shutters, Blinds and Flooring has debunked some of the most widely believed myths about flooring and shutters.

Myth 1: My flooring is warrantied by the manufacturer whomever installs it
This is a myth. You will probably save money if you have your favorite handyman, family, or friends install your flooring - in the short term. The fact is that Manufacturer’s Warranty is extended to companies that are licensed and trained specifically in the trade of installing flooring. So you can have the comfort of having your trusty local handyman do a great job, but if you want the manufacturer’s warranty with it, you’ll need the appropriately licensed installers.

Myth 2: Shutters are too expensive
Shutters may be a tad bit more expensive at the point of purchase. However, shutters have long-term durability and a timeless, classic appearance that doesn't need to be updated with the changing themes. Shutters are the perfect window treatment that lets you control the amount of light in your home. Additionally, when you are building a home, your shutter purchase can actually be included in your home loan where other window treatments are not considered a part of the home.

Myth 3: Carpets are bad for my allergies
It is a common belief that carpets cause more bacteria and dirt to be in the air that get into your lungs. That is an understandable outlook, but it has been proven untrue. A study that looked at hard flooring and allergic reaction rates had some interesting findings. The study showed that with a 70% decrease in carpet flooring, there was a 30% increase in allergic reactions. Additionally, it was found that carpets can help by trapping allergens and preventing them from spreading through the air. Carpets are able to hold dust and dirt until you are ready to vacuum them, unlike hard floors.
