Here are 6 of the best flooring options for your home:

  1. Hardwood: Hardwood floors have been popular for years and if you have never pulled your carpeting back, you may want to check. You might be surprised when you find original hardwood flooring underneath the carpeting if your home is older and has been remodeled a few times.
  2. Carpeting: Many people who currently have hard flooring enjoy switching to carpet. We recommend that you choose a carpet that feels soft under your feet and can be cleaned easily. Also choose a high quality carpet padding that won’t break down easily under normal wear and tear.
  3. Stone Tile: Stone floors can make a house look luxurious and elegant, but it can also be cold underneath your feet. Some stone options that are available include marble, slate, travertine, and limestone and extreme care needs to be taken when they are installed. If the stones are not installed properly, they can chip and crack over time.
  4. Stained Concrete: For a more unique floor, you might want to consider concrete. Concrete floors can be painted or stained any color and once they are sealed, they are simple to keep clean. The one downside is that if anything fragile is dropped on the floor, it will most likely break immediately.
  5. Laminate Flooring: Laminate is a great option for people who want the look of hardwood or stone floors without the cost. This flooring can be installed quickly and is resistant to stains and fading.
  6. Bamboo: Bamboo flooring is more eco-friendly than other flooring options. Bamboo floors can be purchased in different sized planks as well as different colors and styles. This will allow you to customize the look of your flooring and have it match the style of your home.

Every flooring option that is available today will improve the appearance of your home. You will want to choose the material that works best with your family and your lifestyle. If you know that you always have dirt on your shoes as you’re walking through your house, then carpeting should not be considered unless you plan to vacuum daily. However, if you always walk around your house barefoot, then carpeting might be a great option for you.
