4 Most Popular Types of Flooring Material

Most people think of replacing their windows and doors to maintain an aesthetically appealing exterior, but only a few realize the importance of their flooring to the overall look of their living space. Updating your flooring material can help revamp your home’s look and even add more value to your property. Handyman Connection® of Rockville shares four flooring materials to consider for your upcoming project.

1. Hardwood Flooring

This is one of the go-to options for many homeowners looking for beautiful yet durable flooring material. Hardwood flooring comes in many kinds of wood, including maple, pecan, oak, pine and birch. Some types of hardwood, however, tend to shrink or darken over time, especially without proper maintenance.

2. Ceramic Tile

In areas that need waterproofing, ceramic tiles may be the perfect flooring material. They can be matte, embossed, glazed and textured.  Some types of ceramic tiles, however, have a high-gloss finish, which is prone to scratches. To hide the scrapes, some use porcelain-colored ceramic tiles.

3. Marble Flooring

Marble flooring is difficult to beat, especially when it comes to durability and versatility. Plus, it’s easy to clean and maintain. Marble tiles also come in a wide range of colors, styles and sizes to match any home style, from traditional to contemporary.

4. Bamboo Flooring

Many homeowners are shifting to eco-friendly building materials like bamboo flooring to help protect the environment. This type of flooring comes in different colors, but usually ranges from honey brown to light tan. The downside, however, is they tend to darken over time when exposed to sunlight. They are also hard to maintain and are not ideal for high-moist areas.
