Floor Decor to Beautify Home

Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Family & Parenting
Replacing the flooring is an improvement that can add to the value and comfort of any home. Choosing what kind of floor to install can be a daunting task, however, as there are many types of flooring available. The most common types of floor decor are carpet, hardwood, tile, and laminate. Homeowners should consider the amount of traffic and the moisture the floor will be subjected to before choosing a flooring type.

One of the most common types of floor decor is carpet. Carpet is an excellent flooring choice that offers a wide selection of textures and colors. It is suitable for any room in the home with the exception of kitchens and bathrooms due to obvious concerns regarding moisture. One disadvantage to carpeting is that it stains easily, requiring periodic professional or at home steam cleaning. Carpet comes in many different styles and textures, including textured, frieze and sculptured.

Another common type of floor decor is hardwood flooring. Hardwood floors offer an elegant look found in higher-end housing. Manufactured in planks that use a tongue and groove system, hardwood floors are installed with a special adhesive or are nailed down to a sub floor. Although generally an expensive type of flooring, costs vary depending on the type of wood and the amount of labor required during installation. In addition to price, another drawback to hardwood flooring is that the finish can be damaged or scratched by sharp objects, which is costly to repair.

Laminate flooring is an inexpensive alternative to hardwood flooring. Also known as a "floating floor," the flooring is installed above a moisture barrier and/or underlayment covering the sub floor. The planks often have a snap and lock system that holds them together. Easy installation and a wealth of style and color options make laminate a very attractive flooring choice. Some homeowners choose to install laminate flooring themselves, which can save a considerable sum.

Tile is a popular floor decor option because of its durability and wide range of styles and colors. Ceramic, porcelain and stone are the three most common types of tile available. The cost of the tile depends on the type. Ceramic tile is usually the cheapest, while stone tile is the most expensive. Installing tile flooring is often significantly more expensive than other types of flooring due to the amount of labor involved.

Flooring vs floor covering

Flooring and floor covering are perceived to be the same. This is a misconception. Flooring refers to the hard surfaces, which are typically permanent fixtures like wood, tile and stone. On the other hand, floor covering are materials laid over hard surfaces. Floor decoration involves using variety of floor covering materials.

The first task

Subsequent to installing new flooring or renovation of existing surfaces, floor décor activities begin. Floor décor is just not about aesthetic or ethnic appeal but comfortable, dwelling experience as well. Aesthetic floor décor adds classic beauty suitable to the area. The floor décor could characteristically reflect your personal taste and distinctive style. To ensure a good return on investment, a thoughtful area-specific homework before you actually embark on floor decor can be helpful
