Flooring makes all the difference. If you’re picking carpets, hardwood or tile; a brand new floor adds a new clean and updated look. Carpeting is the simplest to update however it is harder to keep clean versus a tile or hardwood floor. Hardwood and tile flooring add ample value to your home, and attention to detail in patterns really sets apart a professional job from a amateur job.
Solid hardwood flooring is all the rage right now. Hardwood has so many benefits as a floor choice that it is tough to select another product. It has excellent longevity which is why so many people are able to peel up carpet and refinish old hardwood floors. It is naturally warm and hypoallergenic and the finishes make them extremely easy to keep clean. Most importantly hardwood flooring boosts your homes overall value.
If genuine hardwood exceeds your budget, laminate is a great alternative which works well. Laminate flooring is extremely impact, scratch, sunlight fade and stain resistant. Laminate is very durable, and gives the look of real hardwood. Most common laminate floors are floating floors verses a nail down or glue down floor.
Ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone tile flooring are very popular choices because of their appearances, durability and care free maintenance. There are multiple pattern options when installing a tile flooring which appeals to the general population because it gives the customer a more custom look to suit the look of their space.
