Considering a makeover to your home’s floors is an exciting yet intimidating undertaking. While everyone has their own personal tastes and their own design expertise, choosing flooring is much more complicated than some might initially assume. What kind of material is best to meet the needs of the room? Is a darker or lighter color more appropriate for the space? Do I have a flexible budget? These are just a few of the questions every homeowner must ask themselves before new flooring is purchased and installed.
Some might be surprised at the number of flooring looks and materials available today. Here are a few of the common floor types renovators like you are currently loving, and why they might work perfectly in your space.
You really can’t go wrong with choosing a sensible yet beautiful carpet for your home—it’s comfortable and easy to clean all while coming in a variety of different colors, styles, and textures.
Keep in mind where carpet should be placed in a home—since it is especially vulnerable to various stains and water damage, it might not be best to install carpet in a room that experiences a lot of activity, such as a family room or a playroom.
Ceramic and Porcelain Tiles
This is a great option for every room—yes, even a living room. That’s because the popular wood plank tile style gives you the look of a hardwood floor while maintaining the durability of tile. While this is a material that is exceptionally easy to take care of, it might bring down the internal temperature of your home. Or at least eliminate the possibility of walking around your house without socks or slippers.
Hardwood floors are a beautiful, versatile, and durable flooring option for any room in your house. It’s a surface that’s easy to maintain and restored, and it complements every taste with its wide variety of stains and styles.
While this flooring option sounds like it has no downsides, pay attention to your budget if you choose this in your upcoming interior renovation. Installing hardwood flooring can mean large dollars are spent, especially depending on the style you choose and the total square footage of your flooring area.
Laminate floors, an option that comes in a large variety of looks, wear well and are often resistant to pesky stains. They can, however, tear and peel easily and do not increase the value of your home.
While renovating your home’s floors is an exciting project, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the many choices available to you.
