Which Flooring Choice Is Right for Your Home?

Home Improvement

There are many things to consider when remodeling a home. Paint colors and window coverings can change the look of a bedroom while new fixtures or cabinets can change the functionality of a kitchen. And, new flooring can dramatically change the feel of your home. If you're ready to change the flooring in your home, Bradenton flooring showrooms have plenty of options that will speak to your personal taste and help you give your home a warm, cozy feel.


Carpet may be the most popular choice for flooring for several reasons.

  • Most kinds of carpeting are soft under the foot and more comfortable when lying on it.

  • Carpet is a great insulator, preventing sounds from drifting up as well as keeping a room warmer in the winter months.

  • It's a great option for individuals on a tight budget.

Some homeowners are turned off by carpet because it can stain easily and look dingy after a short amount of time. Thanks to new innovations and technologies available to carpet manufacturers, today's carpeting is more durable and stain-resistant than ever before.

You can keep your carpeting in top condition by regularly vacuuming it. Vacuuming removes the dirt and dust that can build up in the fibers. Cleaning the carpet can also remove allergens and other airborne particles that may contribute to respiratory problems.


Wood flooring is another flooring choice desired by homeowners. Wood flooring, inarguably, adds measurable value to a home. It is a durable choice that requires little daily maintenance. Unlike carpet, if part of a solid wood floor is damaged, it can be sanded to remove dings and scratches. If you're feeling adventurous and looking for a change, you can even sand the surface and change the color.

As beautiful as wood flooring is, it can be quite expensive due to the higher costs for materials as well as professional installation. Another drawback to wood flooring is that it can be cold and hard, and it can be a conductor of sound from any living areas beneath it.


Another flooring option you have is tile flooring. This flooring gives a home a luxurious feel and can add as much value to a home like wood does. It is great for areas like the kitchen or bath because it is fairly water resistant. Natural stone tiles are indestructible and cleanup on tile floors in general is quick. Ceramic tiles come in numerous colors and patterns that can be mixed and matched to create a unique look. Ceramic tiles also require no maintenance other than sweeping and mopping.

One potential problem with ceramic tiles is they can become slippery when wet and can crack and shatter if impacted by heavy objects. Also, stone tiles need to be sealed every few years to prevent staining. No matter the type of tile you install, it is a labor-intensive project, which adds to the higher overall cost of the floor.

Engineered Flooring

Vinyl and laminate flooring provide the look of wood or tile at a substantially lower cost. They each provide for easy cleanup, and vinyl is the only waterproof choice available. They are also very user-friendly, making them easier for DIY homeowners to work with. There are also numerous colors and styles available that can mimic any wood or tile design.

From natural choices like hardwood or stone tile to man-made options like vinyl or laminate, there are a number of Bradenton flooring options available to match your personal style and your budget. Finding the right flooring for your home just requires a bit of thought and careful weighing of the pros and cons of each product.
