If you’re planning to redo your floors, then you need to be aware of all of the options. Sure, you can go to your local flooring installation in Grapevine TX to see what’s available, but you might be overwhelmed by the many different options. We’ve listed ten of the most interesting general styles here in order to simplify that process.
Tile is a great flooring option for kitchens and bathrooms. It’s inexpensive and easy to install. However, tile tends to be cold, unless you opt for built-in tile warmers. It can crack over time, and the grout can be somewhat tricky to clean. Some find that using something like what my friend calls my favorite steam cleaner could be a good way of cleaning hardwood flooring.
2) Hardwood flooring
While traditional hardwood floors look great and last for a long time, they tend to be fairly expensive. If you’re on a strict budget and have a lot of floors to overhaul, then you might want to find another option. With that said, nothing really compares to their beauty.
Many people don’t like carpeting. It can be hard to get stains and pet fur out, and it collects other allergens. On a good note, there are numerous different piles to pick from, and you might be able to find a comfortable to walk on carpeting that fits your needs.
Laminate flooring is inexpensive and simple to install, just like tile. If your home has a lot of high traffic areas, then laminate flooring is a great option, simply because it’s incredibly durable and simple to clean. You can find plenty of options for flooring installation in Grapevine TX.
5) Peel and stick flooring
This is a type of flooring that looks like tile, only is very easy to install (its installation process is in its name). The downside is that peel and stick flooring won’t last for very long. Since it’s inexpensive, you really do get what you pay for.
6) Cork flooring
Cork flooring is a very environmentally friendly option. It’s comfortable to walk on, antimicrobial, and has some insulating benefits. However, you don’t want to use cork in a room that’s prone to standing water (puddles), as that will ruin it. Heavy furniture can also dent this type of flooring.
Bamboo flooring is great for small rooms, since it is one of the most expensive options. However, it will last almost as long as hardwood, and has a very unique pattern to it.
Vinyl flooring is another inexpensive option. It’s very easy to install and comes in a number of different patterns. It does have a few issues though – it tends to be rather fragile and prone to tearing. One little tear can lead to the need for a complete replacement.
This type of flooring is great for basements and mudrooms – anyplace where you have a lot of storage or foot traffic. It isn’t overly comfortable to walk on, which is why it isn’t a valid option for the rest of your house. Thanks to some advances in concrete technology, your floors won’t look the ones of old.
Rubber is another good option for mudrooms and basements. This flooring is extremely comfortable under the feet and is very easy to keep clean.
