One of the most important decisions you have to make when remodelling your home is the choice of flooring. Think of your priority: is it style or functionality? There is a flooring option to suit each room in your home for all of your preferences. Flooring materials are an essential part of your interior design, and the choice of material also determines the complexity of installation, how you can use your floor, and how you will maintain it afterwards. We are sharing some information on the different types of flooring and where they can fit best in your home.
Laminate Flooring has become one of the most preferred flooring materials due to easy installation, durability and of course its price. Laminate can mimic hardwood, ceramic or stone tiles and it is probably the toughest product to buy. It is the best choice if you have kids or pets as it is easy to clean and takes a lot of beating. Laminate is a good choice for almost every room- bedroom, living room, hallways and offices.
Hardwood Flooring is one of the most beautiful floorings to have in your home and it’s everyone’s all-time favourite. Hardwood floors can be designed with different wood materials and finishes. The cost, however, is substantial. It would be hard on your budget, but in the long run, it is longlasting and it can be refinished after few years thus making it like brand new. With hardwood floors, you have to control the humidity in the room. It best fits living rooms, hallways and bedrooms. It is not recommended for kitchen or bathrooms.
Vynil flooring also mimics other materials. It is not as cheap as it used to be. Vynil is easy to install but a big downside to vinyl is durability. Regardless of how thick of a vinyl you install, it is still more susceptible to scratches, scrapes, and even tears than other flooring materials. It can look good in any room but definitely not recommended for bathrooms or kids room.
Carpet flooring is a favourite among homeowners. It feels good on your feet because it is soft, warm and very comfortable. In addition, carpet helps cut down the on noise in your home. It’s a perfect choice if you have pets or kids and especially for flat owners. Carpet requires more upkeep than the other flooring options- it is easily stained and it has to be washed often. There are stain resistant carpet materials on the market now, but even if you install them, you have to do carpet cleaning at least once a year due to all the dust that collects in it. Carpet flooring is a perfect choice for bedrooms and kids room. It is not recommended for kitchens.
Ceramic tile flooring offers a wide variety of options when it comes to design. It is very durable but hard to install. It definitely requires a professional to make sure the flooring looks good. It is easy to clean and you can replace individual tiles, unlike other flooring systems. Ceramic tile flooring is recommended for kitchens, bathrooms and sometimes hallways.
Stone tile flooring is the tougher material between the types of tile floorings. It has a lot in common with ceramic when it comes to design and installation. Marble, granite, travertine, and sandstone are just a few examples of stone that is often made into flooring tile. Sone tile flooring is more expensive than ceramic. It can be a beautiful finish to your hallways, living room or kitchen.
