If you scored mostly As, you like a more formal, classical look. Consider carpet from the Texture category-its smooth, velvety pile will lend a distinctive elegance to the decor. Dark, richly finished hardwood is often associated with formal settings. Layer a lovely rug over wood or carpet, and you have a magnificent look that's very on-trend.

If you scored mostly Bs, you like to be on the cutting edge of fashion. Choose carpet from the Pattern category or a rug that reflects fashion-inspired fabric- you'll find circles and squares, harlequin and checkerboard designs, argyles and paisley. Or opt for the clean, minimalist feeling of a hardwood, laminate, or tile in very light or very dark colors. All these choices complement the spare lines of contemporary furniture.

If you scored mostly Cs, you have an ultra-busy life " and yet you don't have to sacrifice style to get what you need. Try a carpet from the Twist or Loop categories.  They're forgiving, sturdy and great for active families. Distressed or hand-scraped hardwood and laminate are good choices, too. For tile -- ceramic, porcelain, or stone is known for its easy care and low maintenance.

Hope you enjoyed the Whats Your Style quiz. Its a lighthearted way of pointing out that the more you think about what your room needs, as well as what you like, the more satisfied you'll be with your ultimate selection.
