Choosing the best kind of flooring for your home renovation project can be a daunting task. What makes it awesome though is that you are in charge of every decision that is made. There are options to consider, colors to choose, and the best part of it all is: you get full reign over picking which is your favorite.
Here are some of the things you will need to focus on when choosing your preferred flooring.
What’s Your Style?
Obviously, the first decision to get out of the way is to decide on the flooring type. Do you have more modern tastes that require a bit more clean lines and sleek texture? Or do you lean more toward the classic wood floor, with a rich depth and soothing warmth?
Having the right flooring installed enables your overall design to better reflect your tastes and wishes. Some of the flooring styles to choose from include:
- Vinyl Plank Flooring: the luxurious look and feel of vinyl plank will give you the quality look at a budget-friendly price; a variety of colors and textures are available, in either a glue-down or click option.
- Engineered Hardwood Flooring: featuring all that is beautiful about natural hardwood with increased durability, more placement options, all at a lower price point, engineered hardwood flooring opens the door for your options.
- Tile Flooring: whether choosing ceramic or porcelain tiles, you get the beautiful look of wood flooring with the modern convenience needed for your kitchen, bathroom or the higher traffic zones in your home.
When Size Matters
The length or width of the individual pieces you choose does make a difference in the overall design of your flooring. With engineered wood flooring, your width options range from 5-7.5 inches and the lengths are anything from 47 to 86 inches long.
There is also the additional option when it comes to engineered hardwood, and that is what is referred to as the ‘wear layer’ which can be either 1mm, 2mm, or 4 mm thick. This layering adds a more stable surface as well as options for installation that otherwise would be dismissed (such as the basement).
Take a Spin on the Color Wheel
Choosing the best color for your design space can make or break a project. Whether you like darker or lighter coloring, there is a wide range of options you can choose from to match your personal taste.
Don’t settle for something you don’t love just because you mistakenly think there isn’t an opportunity for other choices. You have a variety of possibilities! In essence, when it comes to what you put under your feet, the sky is essentially the limit.
