When deciding on flooring for your home, you should keep in mind three essential elements — the look you want, your budget, and your family’s lifestyle — before making your choice. While gorgeous flooring will add value to your home, you’ll also want something durable and comfortable under your feet.
This choice is excellent for high traffic areas since it won’t wear down. It also won’t stain like other flooring and is water resistant, so tile works well in homes with children and pets. It comes in a vast number of colors and patterns and will give your rooms an expensive look regardless of your home’s style. The material itself is not overly expensive; however, laying tile is labor intensive which can drive up the cost.
Although an expensive choice, wood flooring has become quite popular with homeowners. Wood floors are low maintenance, stain resistant, and sanitary. Because you can quickly clean dust and germs off wood floors, they’re a perfect choice for people with allergies. Wood floors are a sustainable choice. If they do get damaged by pets or children, you can refinish them without paying for a total replacement.
This type of floor is a nice compromise if you like the look of hardwood but can’t afford it. Laminate is reasonably priced and will simulate the look of natural hardwood flooring. It’s also long-lasting, making it an even better choice for the price. Because laminate is easy to install, the time spent putting it in is less, minimizing any inconvenience to you and your family.
Carpet remains the standard choice for homeowners. It’s usually the least expensive type of flooring and comes in an almost unlimited number of colors and patterns. Carpeting is an excellent choice if you have children and pets because it provides a soft cushion under their feet. Carpet also provides warmth during cold weather. It’s not slippery either, making it a safe option for seniors and young children.
Flooring has become one of the most important decisions you make when updating your interior. You’ll want the perfect choice for your family so everyone will enjoy the home for many years to come.
