Although it is always underfoot, the flooring is one of the most important aspects of interior design. You might be surprised learn just how much the floor can lift the entire design. Whether you realize it or not, your floor may already be dragging down the value of your home. Even if it is in relatively good condition, it may just be time for a change. Twenty years ago, deciding on a type of flooring was relatively easy. Today, you have a vast range of options to choose from making it a more difficult decision.
A number of factors will play a role in your flooring choices. Your budget is always a big consideration, but you shouldn’t always focus on the cost of flooring. You might not be doing yourself any favors if you rule out options just because it is more costly. Instead, focus on enhancing your decor, and getting something that will last.
The area of the home will of course play a role in the type of flooring material you use, for example, the material for a bedroom is not necessarily a good choice for the kitchen. Some flooring options to consider whether you are just renovating or building a new structure include:
- Floating vinyl sheets: Vinyl has been a popular flooring option for a long time due to its toughness and relatively low price. It is a good choice for areas like laundry rooms or kitchens. There are also many different designs to choose from.
- Laminate flooring: These products have undergone lots of improvements since they were first introduced. Like floating vinyl sheets it can be installed on top of an existing floor. It mimics the look of hardwood and is scratch and stain resistant. There are also many low cost options available.
- Engineered wood: This has similarities to laminate flooring, and the planks are generally installed in the same way. You can look at a variety of grain patterns before choosing the one that suits you best. With this type of flooring material you can have the look of hardwood without the maintenance.
- Marble tiles: These are good for interior use, and are best used in areas where there is little traffic to help this high-priced material last and keep its high-end appearance.
