Wednesday, January 23, 2019

There are a lot of different types of flooring you can get in the home. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, which is why it is important to check your needs while choosing one.

You can find the one that suits your needs and turn your home into a beautiful haven, too. Since there is a lot of variety to choose from, we have narrowed down some of the main options you can get for your home.

1. Carpeting

Carpets come in a lot of different colors and patterns which can be suited according to the aesthetic of the room you are choose. There are many budget-friendly options to choose from and they also help regulate the temperature of the room. They are comfortable to walk on and even make the room more soundproof. Carpet flooring is usually perfect for bedrooms.

2. Wooden Floors

Wooden flooring is really appealing to look at and is popular among buyers, which means it even increases the property value of your home. It adds texture and depth to the bedroom and comes in a lot of different types like maple, ash, oak, and walnut. Most homes use a strip or plank wood in the homes since they are straight, linear pieces of wood. Planks create a more casual appearance so they are preferred in lounge areas within the home.

3. Stone or Tiled Floors

Tiled or stone floors can look absolutely gorgeous in the home. They come in a lot of different patterns, colors and styles. They are also highly durable and can withstand a lot of traffic. They can be quite cold and hard though so they are preferred in bathrooms, kitchens, or hallways. They help lower the temperature, which can be perfect if you live in an area with a hot climate.

4. Laminate Flooring

Laminate is covered entirely in plastic which makes it relatively reliable. They come in different printed wood-tones with realistic grains and textures that can be taken to suit any type of room you put them in. they are vastly cheaper than hardwood as well; however, they are more susceptible to scratching. They are very easy to install and last for a long time.

5. Rubber Floors

Rubber floors are created with environmentally friendly rubber. The recycled or virgin rubber comes in a lot of different colors, patterns, and styles. It is made from a very durable material and experts suggest it can last for 30 years. This is one of the main reasons it is really popular for a child’s bedroom or a playroom. It is very easy to clean and maintain.

6. Cork Flooring

It is a very durable material and absorbs sounds. It also supports the user comfortably which make its really popular for kitchen use. However, heavy furniture can create indentations in the material since it is pliable and soft. However, it comes in a lot of different colors and is a really durable material. This makes it a really popular flooring option within residential areas.
