Whether you have purchased a new home, or it is time for an update, your choice of flooring options are endless. Treat yourself and get that old-time feel with oak flooring or achieve the same look but a more durable and budget-happy option with laminate or vinyl wood flooring instead. From different textures, styles, colors, and materials, you will be able to find the flooring option you will love. Here are some options our handymen enjoy.
Vinyl flooring is a favorite for its easy to install, economical, and durable traits. Made to be self-installed or with the help of a handyman, you can install vinyl in any room as individual planks or as sheet flooring.
In an old home or new, the classic materials are a taste that can’t be beat. Wood and stone floors might come with a bigger price tag, but the feel and look can add great value to your home. Make sure you consider the environment you are putting these types of flooring in. Wood can be easily stained so it is not ideal for a kitchen, and both kinds of flooring can be easily scratched, depending on the product.
When it comes to flooring, the needs of a room and the traffic flow really dictates what kind you must pick for that room. For example, ceramic or even glass tiles are not a safe choice for a bathroom since they are slippery when wet. Picking a high-pile carpet, meaning the fibers are taller and plush, won’t work in a room with high-traffic since it’ll show footprints and marks as the fibers are easily crushed. Instead, go for a medium or low-pile carpet that can withstand the traffic and still looks great. Flooring and carpets are installed with pads for extra cushioning or even waterproofing to help them last and withstand the challenges of daily life.
When you are ready to begin looking, these three pointers will help you begin to ask questions and discover which options you will love the most in your home. Most importantly, take your time and pick a floor that will compliment not only your décor, but your lifestyle as well.
