How to Choose the Right Flooring

Home Improvement

Everywhere you step in your home will have some kind of flooring, so choosing the appropriate flooring for the room, the house, and your lifestyle is important. There is a variety of flooring choices and each comes with potential advantages and disadvantages. Find out more about carpet, hardwood, tile, and laminate wood flooring in Blaine, MN, so that you can make the right choice for your home.


Carpet is a popular choice for bedrooms and living rooms in particular. While there is a wide range of prices for carpet, it can be one of the most economical flooring choices. Carpet also offers a softer product underfoot, which can be appealing especially for families with babies and toddlers who spend a lot of time on the floor. Carpet is also a good insulator and can make a room feel warmer. The disadvantages to carpet are its difficulty to clean and its propensity to store dirt and allergens deep in the fibers. Carpet cannot be refinished and patching in new pieces can be difficult and sometimes impossible.


Hardwood is one of the most popular flooring choices and has been for hundreds of years. Hardwood floors are extremely durable, beautiful, and easy to take care of. If the finish begins to wear or there is some damage to the floor, a traditional solid hardwood floor can be refinished and restored to looking brand new without having to replace it. Hardwood is one of the most expensive flooring choices, and because it is natural wood, it will respond to heat and humidity as wood does, causing it to expand and contract. Because of this, solid hardwood cannot be installed over concrete and in basements or below grade rooms. It should also not be used in bathrooms or washrooms.


Tile is a great option for flooring, particularly in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms where there may be a lot of moisture. Tile is very durable, easy to clean, and now comes in more styles than ever. With new technological printing techniques, you can purchase tile that looks like natural hardwood. You can also install tiles now without large grout lines in between each tile, making a tile floor look like a seamless wood floor. Tile can be a fairly inexpensive flooring choice depending on the style you choose. Tile is also one of the easiest for do-it-yourself jobs.


Laminate flooring is popular because of its affordability, ease of installation, and durability. While you may feel wary of laminate because you fear it will look cheap and fake, you might want to take another look at the products currently on the market. Laminate today looks more authentic than ever. You can find laminate wood flooring in Blaine, MN, that looks like real wood for a fraction of the cost. Laminate also has more flexibility as far as where it can be installed. While you should still avoid installing it in bathrooms or other areas where there is heavy moisture, you can install laminate over concrete and below grade level. Laminate also holds up well to wear and is a great choice for households with children and pets.
