Flooring Options For Your Next Renovation

Are you thinking about redoing the flooring in your home? There  are a large number of different flooring options available and each has its own benefits and drawbacks depending on what your looking for. Take a look at what you will be using the space for and how each flooring option can improve your space or create problems in the future. 

Hardwood flooring is more of an upscale option as it costs quite a bit more per square foot but the longevity is by far the greatest. There are so many wonderful colours and wood grains to choose from that you could literally spend an entire day at a hardwood store just browsing. Quality of hardwood trumps all others and is really the best option if you can afford it.

Vinyl or laminate flooring is a lot cheaper than hardwood and doesn’t last nearly as long. There can be certain issues that arise like bubbles in the panels from getting wet, spaced out boards from improper installation, wearing out in high traffic areas, sun fading, and much more. The life of vinyl flooring is usually 10 years depending on how you live your life. 

Tile flooring is a pricey option as well. Not only is it costly but it can break and is quite cold on your feet. The best rooms to install tile flooring are bathrooms since they are wet on a regular basis. Tile and grout can handle the wear and tear of bathroom duties. 

Carpet is a cheaper option in any scenario. It feels nice on the feet, it comes in a large variety of colours, textures, and lengths for whatever your need may be. Carpet is easy to maintain besides the regular spills and rips but it is easy to clean and simple to replace when the time comes. 

These flooring options are the most popular by far, you can always look into epoxy and bamboo but those are much more expensive and a whole lot more work. Think about what you really want out of your flooring and decide which option is right for you and your family.
