Things to know when choosing a flooring for your home

Flooring plays a huge role in creating the right look of a room. With a ton of options available, it is difficult to pick the correct type of flooring. However, when refinishing a home, it is essential to know what kind of space requires what flooring; otherwise, you will not be able to create the right ambiance. To make it easy for you, we have listed a few rooms and the kind of flooring that is preferred in them.

Before starting the procedure, you need to keep two things in mind:

    • The different types of flooring
    • The purpose of the room that requires flooring

Each room in the house serves a different purpose. The flooring you choose will depend on the purpose of the room.

Bathroom and laundry room

The bathroom is mostly damp, so it is necessary to opt for a flooring solution that is water resistant. For this reason, tile or stone flooring is the best option. Make sure you do not opt for laminate or hardwood flooring as that will rot very quickly.

If you are looking for cost-efficient flooring, porcelain is a good choice. It not only combines the beauty and hardness of stone, but is also durable enough to handle heavy traffic.

Living room

A living room is a place to relax and entertain guests. For this reason, you need to have a place that looks comfortable and nice. Opt for laminated, wood, or carpet flooring. Tile and vinyl flooring work too, but they can get cold.

Laminate flooring is the best option as they are easy to clean (unlike carpets), are scratchproof – which allows heavy traffic—, water-resistant, inexpensive, are available in various designs, and are easily replaceable.


The hall can be floored with any type of flooring. However, if you are changing the floor upstairs, carpets would be a good choice as it can help reduce the noise for people downstairs. If that is not the case, opt for any durable flooring solution— preferably vinyl flooring. This kind of flooring is water resistant and inexpensive.


A good option for the kitchen would be vinyl flooring. It is waterproof, stain-proof, and resilient, which means it feels soft under the feet. This eases the pressure on the legs when preparing food. This flooring is easy to clean, inexpensive, and gives you a variety to choose from as it comes in different colors and styles.

Utility room

This room is used to store liquid detergents and cleaning tools. These rooms are expected to get dirty and have heavy traffic. Hence, it is better to opt for stone or vinyl flooring. These floors can be cleaned easily, and are able to withstand dropped objects.
If you are looking to replace the flooring in your home, keep the purpose of the room, the flow of traffic, and the different types of flooring (and their advantages) in mind.
