Suffering From Boring Flooring?

by Mike Kase 02/25/2019

Deciding on flooring for your home sounds boring. No one wants to research and compare all the different options, but the floors get used more than just about everything else in your home. So, spending some time looking into what flooring will be the best value for you is a wise investment of time. Get ready to take on an adventure of comparing and sorting through all the different flooring options in today’s market. 

No Flying Carpets Here

Carpeting may seem like a simple choice, when in fact there is a lot to consider when it comes to wall-to-wall carpeting. Determine where you would like to use carpet, and how much traffic there will be on a daily basis. Some types of carpeting such as loped Berber handle high traffic flow well. Carpet made from nylon, a man-made material, is excellent for heavy usage areas. Other carpet materials such as wool and olefin are also high traffic area carpet materials that give you a good value for your dollars spent. The straight cut pile and plush styles of carpeting are both softer then loop and are great for bedrooms and lighter traffic areas. 

Knock on Wood; or Something Like It

If you or your family member suffer from allergies carpeting may not be the best choice; in that case, you certainly may want to look into hardwood or engineered wood. Hardwood, as the name implies, is durable wood planks. This option comes in lots of color and shade choices but can be costly for larger projects. Hardwood is easy to clean and a substantial long-term investment. Engineered wood is a durable choice and a bit less expensive than hardwood. Moisture can cause hardwood to warp over time, whereas engineered wood can handle the humidity a bit better. 

Not Your Grandparent’s Laminate

Laminate flooring is the least expensive out of the above choices can also be advantageous to a household with allergies. Also, easily cleaned and maintained, but resistant to fading, laminate comes in a wide selection and design options. You can acquire a laminate that looks like hardwood or other higher-end flooring materials while keeping within a modest budget. With laminate materials you can be creative with color and patterns, adding a custom look to any room. 

Look through open houses in your area and see what kind of flooring choices others have used throughout their homes.
