29 Apr Choosing a Floor to Fit your Style
People don’t normally think about their lifestyle when selecting a floor covering. They choose them based primarily on aesthetics. Today’s options are capable of accommodating a wide range of optic values while providing floor coverings that will best fit multiple lifestyle requirements. Consider the following when choosing your flooring.
The first question to ask yourself is how busy the home is in terms of visitors and foot traffic. It should take into account the number of children, pets and adults living in the home. Children and pets will take a higher toll on flooring and you’ll want a floor covering that’s highly resilient such as luxury vinyl, laminate, hardwood, or tiles of ceramic, marble or porcelain.
The aesthetic value of your floor covering encompasses more than how it looks. You’ll want it to be a reflection of your personal preferences and tastes, furnishings, and the overall style of your home. Hardwood or carpeting may be the best choice if you prefer a traditional look. For more modern households, luxury vinyl or tiles of porcelain or ceramic are popular options.
Children and Older Adults
If you have very young children, they’ll be spending a lot of time on the floor as they crawl, walk, and play. Carpeting comes in at No. 1 when children and older adults are involved. It provides the softest surface for youngsters and offers warmth and insulation. Bamboo is an alternative choice that’s resilient and provides a level of sound dampening quality.
Even if you live alone, you may regularly host a variety of parties and guests in your home. Alternately, for households with children that can mean everything from birthday parties and sleepovers to cookouts. You’ll need flooring that’s durable and resistant to spills and stains.
If you or a member of the family has allergies or respiratory conditions, hardwood, porcelain, and marble tile are premium options, followed by, laminate, and vinyl. They don’t hold allergens like carpeting, they’re easy to keep clean, and require little effort to maintain an elevated standard of hygiene.
