Flooring Can Make or Break Your Home
Thursday, January 18, 2018

Interior designers believe that the room’s beauty begins from the floor and then rises upward. Floors are not only supposed to look beautiful, but they should also be durable, easy to maintain and tough. Most flooring materials are exactly like that; however, some low-quality ones can disappoint.

When choosing floor material for a specific room, a homeowner should not just think about the décor, but there are some others things as well which require attention. How many people will come in the room? What type of flooring would be able to tolerate the kitchen’s heat or bathroom’s humidity? Will lots of parties take place in the home? Answer to these and some other questions can help a homeowner in deciding the type of flooring to use. Some of the most popular kinds of flooring are:

1. Carpet

Carpeting softens and quiets a room, creates a unique mood and pulls all the different elements in a room closer. The finest carpet is made from wool which gives it a soft and comfy structure that sheds dirt and is resistant to abrasion. But, carpets made from pure wool are very expensive, so synthetic carpets are manufactured to recreate some of the properties of wool carpets.

For example, acrylic carpets are long-lasting, nylon carpets are very strong, insect, strain and abrasion resistant, polyester carpets are inexpensive and are perfect for any room and cotton carpets feel lovely to walk on and increase the beauty of a room, but they are less sturdy than synthetics and wool.

2. Hardwood

Hardwood offers strong flooring for all kinds of rooms. Trees that are mostly used for hardwood flooring are Oak, Maple and Hickory.
Oak is probably the best and most popular kind of hardwood flooring. It is beautiful and can last almost for a century if maintained properly. Maple is light-colored, hard and strong. Japanese and birds’ eye maple has quilted, attractive, curly or swirled grain. Hickory flooring is heavy, tough and hard, though it’s comfortable to walk on.

3. Vinyl

For decades, homeowners have used vinyl flooring for their bathrooms, kitchens and even living rooms. What’s good about vinyl is that it won’t crack, humidity and high temperature is not a problem and it feels good when walked on. Non-porous vinyl resists staining and scratching and can be easily cleaned.

4. Laminate

Laminate floors can be easily installed by a homeowner. The benefit of choosing laminate flooring is that it is quite durable and versatile. Laminate floors can be easily cleaned, unlike hardwood floors that require extensive cleaning. However, laminate floors should not be mopped as this can damage the flooring. Drying methods like brooms should be used to clean laminate floors and sometimes wet cleaning is recommended with specialized products that don’t leave water on the floor.

There you have it! Now, you know the most popular floor materials, but you don’t know where to get them, right? Well, just visit Timeless Designs Flooring and you’ll find these and other flooring products that you can use to transform your home into the perfect haven.
