Flooring Options That Meet Your Needs
Out of all the surfaces in your home, your flooring will take the greatest beating. Foot traffic, pets, children, possible spills, and elements from the outside can all have an effect on your flooring. If you choose the wrong type of materials, then you can expect serious problems after installation.
Concierge Home Remodeling understands the importance of your flooring. It serves as more than just a surface. Flooring can tie the aesthetics of a room together, invite you into your home after a long day, or impress guests of a dinner party. Most importantly, your flooring is the foundation of your entire home’s beauty. Failure to recognize the importance of your flooring can lead to more costs and conflicts in design.
Types of Flooring
There are many flooring options you can choose from, but it can be difficult to pinpoint which type is best suited for your own home. Concierge Home Remodeling works directly with you to determine the right flooring option based on your own personality, needs, and style of home.
When considering a flooring renovation, you have the following options:
Hardwood Flooring: If you want an option that is gorgeous in any home, natural hardwood floors are the best option. Hardwood flooring is solid and can last a long time. Hardwood may also be temperature controlled using the right technologies and installation methods. The only downside to hardwood is the maintenance. It is extremely susceptible to moisture, so it shouldn’t be installed in basements, bathrooms, or laundry rooms.
Tile Flooring: Tile is more versatile than hardwood when it comes to beauty. Tile can come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and textures. It can also go anywhere in your home since it is resistant to moisture. Your bathroom and kitchen often have tile flooring, but it is really suitable for the entire home. One drawback you must consider is how hard it is underneath your feet. It will also remain cold, which may be a wake-up call you aren’t expecting in the mornings.
Carpet Flooring: The popularity of carpet has dwindled over the years, but it still serves as a great choice for the home. Like tile, carpet has many different colors, patterns, and textures. It isn’t suitable for all types of rooms like your bathroom or kitchen, but living areas will benefit greatly from carpet flooring. A large drawback carpet poses is its ability to harbor bacteria. Without professional carpet cleaning, your floor will always house bacteria. Additionally, carpet typically doesn’t last as long as any of the other options we have available.
Laminate Flooring: Capable of mimicking other flooring options, laminate is a more affordable choice. Laminate can look like wood, tile, concrete, or natural stone. Although it doesn’t feel like the real thing, it serves as a cost-effective option. When getting wet, laminate can get slippery, so it isn’t best for kitchens or bathrooms.
Vinyl Flooring: Similar to laminate in that it can mimic other materials, vinyl flooring offers a comfortable and impervious flooring option. Vinyl is softer than laminate while also looking like the real thing. It is installed in planks which is very similar to hardwood. Resistance to moisture makes it last longer, but it still has a synthetic look.
Have questions regarding your flooring or a flooring installation? We’ve answered a few questions here to help ease your nerves. Don’t see your questions? Give us a call!
How long does it take to install new flooring?
Most flooring installation projects can be completed in a day. However, it varies on the square footage and the type of flooring you have installed. For example, hardwood flooring for an entire home could take a couple of days, depending on the number of installers.
What flooring is best for the bathroom and kitchen?
The most suitable bathroom and kitchen flooring options are ceramic tiles, stone, or luxury vinyl. Hardwood is not recommended because of how prone it is to moisture, which both the kitchen and bathroom have a lot of.
Can I install the new flooring myself?
You can certainly try. While flooring installation is a more DIY-friendly project than roofing, we still recommend you have a professional install your flooring as it will ensure a proper installation.
