I'm closing on a condo at the end of July and am planning on pulling the existing flooring (wall-to-wall carpet, even in the bathroom) and installing hardwood or cork. I'm concerned that a wrong color/style choice for my floor will ultimately come back to bite me when I'm doing other updates so I'd like to consult with a designer to get a cohesive upgrade plan.

I saw that Heather Scott has been suggested already, but my tastes lean more towards contemporary/modern. Any suggestions for designers that specialize in that area?

Dark floors look more expensive, however I would do something in the middle of light and dark. Make sure they are sealed too. Check out the color here.

Hi Arjaye, Did you use any interior designer ? Can you please share your experience ?

I am also looking for one to help design the condo which I plan to close next month.

Is there another condo below you? If so, there may be a big problem with noise below. Before putting in a hard floor, please be sure that the condo complex allows this and what kind of construction they require if they do. If there is no condo below you, its probably OK, but its best to check.
