Essential List of Requirements in Selection of Flooring for High Traffic Areas

Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Family & Parenting
Choosing the right flooring surface for your home can be a difficult decision. There are numerous different flooring options that can be used to enhance the look of a room. The rooms in your home that are frequently in use require flooring that is durable so it stands up to the constant use. Flooring surfaces range in price and ease of installation so make sure you research which flooring option in best for you. Here are a few durable flooring options for high-traffic rooms.

Ceramic tile is one of the most durable and affordable flooring options for your home. Made from a mixture of clay and stone, ceramic tiles have the look of real stone without the real stone price. Tiles are easy to maintain and are very resistant to spills and stains so they are perfect for kitchens or bathrooms where water will likely end up on the floor. Tiles come in a variety of colors and textures that can match the look of your room. Tiles also come in a range of thicknesses so a more heavy duty tile would be better suited for a high traffic room.

Natural hardwood is another flooring option that can really enhance the look of a room. While hardwood is a more expensive option, the look and durability make it a popular flooring material. There are many different types of hardwood ranging from common trees such as Maple or Oak to more exotic options such as Brazilian Walnut. Hardwood floors can also be refinished after a few years to refresh the look of the floor. Hardwood floors are more susceptible to water damage so they are not ideal for bathrooms.

Laminate flooring is the most affordable option and can also look good as well. Laminate is much cheaper than wood or stone and it is much easier to install. Laminate flooring comes in pieces that can be locked together for quick and easy installation. Each piece features a layer of fiberboard with a pattern layer printed on top. Laminate is durable and cheap, but is susceptible to stains and other forms of wear and tear.

Keep these questions in mind when looking at purchasing new flooring:

What goes on in each room? What does that room need? (work/play, easy cleaning, prone to high traffic/spills, extra comfort, moisture exposure, etc)

Are you willing to maintain special care surfaces/What do you consider requiring too much care? (Vacuuming? Waxing? Shampooing?)

Does your family have small children, elderly, or pets?

What is the base of your flooring? (Many floors can be applied to concrete slabs with a moisture protection base applied, but not all floors can be applied to all bases.)

Do you desire special features such as heated floors?

What is your budget and decorating schematic?

Once you have decided what your home flooring will require, you can look at your options and find the best fit for your home.

Vinyl is a great option for family homes that get exposed to varieties of manhandling. It is tough and durable while also appealing to the eyes. Vinyl has an incorrect reputation of being unattractive or out-dated, however today's options come in plentiful colors and patterns that look quite trendy when worked into a decorating scheme. It is an immensely cost-efficient option that does not sacrifice a quality lifespan. Kitchens, mudrooms, and laundry rooms also contain perfect conditions for vinyl flooring.

Carpet was once the gold standard for home flooring. While it has slipped in popularity as more flooring options have become home accessible, carpeting has certainly not slipped in functionality or style; it provides some of the most versatile and comfortable home flooring. Typically wall-to-wall, carpet flooring provides security to small children testing out their motor skills on a crash friendly surface, as well as to elderly who also desire a non-slip surface. Carpet retains warm air in cold weather and cooler air during heat spells, constantly providing a comfortable surface for all your daily interaction and even working as a noise reducer. Despite some protest by those with an aversion to cleaning, maintenance is considered low key with regular vacuuming and annual professional cleaning.
