Undertaking home improvement projects or building a new home can be a stressful task especially when deciding on what to have as the base or the flooring of your house. There are various choices in flooring materials and styles for specific parts of a house and choosing your flooring should not only depend on what looks good. Your decision should depend on various points such as the function of the space, the overall look of the room, and the ambience you want to have in the place that you’ll use the flooring for. From the quantity of the flooring supplies to the installation and maintenance of the flooring materials, Creative Flooring can assist you in choosing the best floor type you can have for your home.
INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR LIVING ROOM
In most houses, the living room is the place for family members to commune and talk about their days. On the other hand, there are also homes that have a formal living room which they use as a receiving area, or even as a display piece. For places with high traffic area, as is the case of the community space and the receiving area, it’s best to use durable hardwood flooring, vinyl flooring or laminate flooring since not only do these flooring have various colours and patterns that can define your living space, but these materials are classic flooring types that can match anything. Hardwood flooring, vinyl flooring and laminate flooring are also easy to maintain and hard to scratch, making them perfect for high traffic areas. Aside from those, you can also use carpet flooring as decorative pieces and as insulators to make your living room cosy and warm.
On the other hand, a living room that is used as a display piece can use different types of flooring such as marble flooring or full carpet flooring since these types are less easy to maintain and therefore perfect for areas with no high-traffic. For living room used as display pieces, having a feature wall made from vinyl tiles, hardwood, and even marble is also preferred because these materials have natural characteristics that make them look classy and can match any style.
For an exterior living room, it’s best to use hardwood flooring or stone flooring since these materials are waterproof, perfect for outdoor living. Their natural look would also match any space especially if your outside living room is located in your backyard or outdoor patio.
Vinyl flooring, solid hardwood flooring or engineered wood flooring are the best flooring materials that can be used in the bedroom. These classic flooring materials are very durable and easy to maintain with anti-stain and water-resistant properties. When carpet flooring is laid over these materials, your bedroom will be well insulated, and you can sleep tight because of the noise-reduction properties of the carpet. Another flooring material that can be used in a bedroom is cork flooring. Though this flooring is not commonly used because they are moldable and not super durable unlike vinyl flooring or hardwood flooring, cork flooring can fit bedroom floors because of its softness, warmth and it also serves as a good insulator. But if you do not like cork flooring, you can always use the cork in your walls so that you can have an art space to build your memories.
HOME OFFICE OF LIBRARY
Carpet flooring can be used in your home office or library because the materials reduce noise and are a good insulator, allowing you to focus on your work or your reading. The various carpets types as well as the designs and patterns can also add to the ambience of the place or can serve as decorative pieces when laid over vinyl or hardwood flooring. Other carpet types are also hypoallergenic, anti-static, and stain-resistant, perfect for whenever you want to go barefoot and feel comfortable with a book on your home office or library.
Waterproof and stain-resistant flooring is a must for kitchen and wet areas. Liquid-resistant vinyl flooring is best used in Kitchens because of its resistance to mineral oil, grease and more. The slip-resistant characteristic of vinyl flooring also makes it the perfect flooring for heavy-traffic kitchen areas where the whole family helps prepare their meals. Aside from vinyl flooring, anti-scratch and water-resistant solid hardwood can also be used as kitchen flooring especially for homes with farmhouse looks. The various designs and patterns on both vinyl and wooden flooring types can also add style to the overall look of your space.
