Thinking Of Changing the Flooring? Read This First
Friday, August 17, 2018
Some of us grew up looking at the same old carpet in the rooms of our house. We might as well get tired looking at the same thing all the time. Especially if the carpet is faded, it ruins the look of the house. For these reasons, we sometimes plan to change the look of the house.
When we look into changing the look of the house, changing the flooring is one option that comes up the last in our heads. Although it should be the first one. Changing the flooring can change the looks of your house entirely. And the good part is, there are several options available, some would make it look spacious, some make it look richer.
If you plan to change the flooring of the house, there are many options available. All these have their own pros and cons. Which one to choose, totally depends on your taste, preference and budget.
Let us see a few common options that are available, and some of their properties.
Also known as floating wood tile, laminate flooring is a synthetic material pressed into layers by the process of lamination, hence the name. It can give the look of wood or stone. Laminate flooring gained popularity in the past few years. Reason being, they are easier to install and clean compared to other options.
Another benefit is that these are more resistant to scratches and dents because of the protective layer it has on the outermost. However, it does wear out over time. In such case, you would need to replace it because it cannot be restored like wooden floors.
Vinyl flooring has been very popular lately with many homeowners, mostly in kitchens and bathrooms, etc. their prices car based on the material that you choose. Vinyl is cost friendly and quite durable compared to the price. Vinyl floors are easy to clean and to replace.
We have seen carpets at our homes ever since our childhood and they are still widely used around the world as a popular flooring solution by both, the households and by businesses.
There are benefits of having carpets too. Firstly, they do not require a high maintenance; all you need to do is to vacuum regularly. This returns them to the new and fresh look.
The disadvantage however is that they trap dust, allergens and bacteria. They also tend to wear out sooner compared to other options.
Wooden flooring has been in vogue for quite a long time now. It has been widely used both at homes and on commercial levels. Even though they have been used for a long time, the good part is that they never go out of style. In addition, the variety in wooden floors makes your choice unique every time you go out to choose a style.
Wooden floors are easier to clean and maintain. They are also quite durable compared to other options. In case they wear out, you can sand and refinish them to restore the look.
