There’s no bigger home renovating challenge than old and worn-out floors. You can easily paint walls, replace your furniture, and add accessories to a space for aesthetic purposes. However, replacing a floor is a much bigger, costlier job.
But this doesn’t mean that you’ll have to live with ratty old carpeting or a floor that’s curling up at the edges. Today, you’ll find a range of different flooring options that are affordable and meet your requirements.
However, you also can’t pick the cheapest option. Every flooring material comes with a set of advantages and disadvantages. You have to make an informed choice that weighs costs against benefits. The following are some flooring options that you should consider for your residential property:
Porcelain Or Ceramic Tile
You can’t go wrong with attractive tile flooring. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are some of the most reliable options for bathrooms.
When it comes to color availability and styling options, porcelain and ceramic tiles have proven to be versatile flooring materials. You can find a range of styles, from tiny mosaics to huge format floors and wood look tiles that easily blend in with hardwood flooring.
Hardwood flooring is possibly the best-looking option, and is a favorite among homeowners. They can be installed almost anywhere in your home, whether it’s your kitchen or the dining room. However, they aren’t a good option for areas that receive heavy traffic or those that often get wet, including the bathrooms, mudrooms, and laundry rooms.
Hardwood floors are easy to install and can be handled by any renovation contractor. There are three ways to install a hardwood floor i.e., glue-down installation, nail down-installation, and engineered floating floor installation. You’ll have to work with your contractor to figure out which one works best for you.
If you’re a fan of hardwood floors but can’t work their cost into your budget, laminate flooring might be your saving grace. Laminate flooring is similar in design to engineered wood floors, with its top layer finish and sealed with layers of plywood and compressed fiber.
If you’re looking to redo your residential flooring, you’ll need the help of a professional flooring contractor.
