3 Tips for Choosing Your Flooring

Wood flooring installation

Choosing the best flooring material for your home can be tricky, especially since there are so many options out there and each one has it’s own pros and cons. A variety of hardwoods are flooding the market, and linoleum is even making a comeback.

Here are some tips for choosing the best flooring option for you:

    1. Make sure you like it. This may seem obvious, but many people forget that flooring can last a long time, unless it’s cheap wood flooring or vinyl sheet flooring, and some hard wood flooring types can last 50-100 years. If you choose a flooring style that’s on trend, you may regret it when it becomes dated. Sit with any possible flooring option for a little while and make sure you’ll be able to look at it for the next few decades.

    2. Choose flooring that will last. Consider how much wear and tear you and your family may inflict on your floors, and what kind can occur in each room. Living rooms may not be as cozy with harder floors, and stone or tile may not be ideal for rooms that get cold in winter. Hardwoods are more durable than softwoods but they’re usually more expensive. Also, moist or wet areas like main entryways, mud rooms or bathrooms may not be great places for expensive or cheap wood flooring.

    3. Keep your budget in mind. The best tile or wood flooring types can increase the value of your home, but it won’t mean anything if you have to take out a second mortgage just to fund the installation project, especially if your home is only on the low to medium value range. High-quality flooring may just highlight your home’s other flaws and it may become harder to sell. It might be better to go with cheap wood flooring or vinyl wood flooring that’s attractive and cost efficient.
