Which Type Of Residential Flooring Best Suits You?


The flooring in your home is very important, of course. Because your home is your haven, you want it to be completely comfortable all the way down to the floor. But what type of residential flooring would be best for you and your needs?

Read on to understand your options…

Laminate Flooring 

Do you have young kids? Young children love to run and play, sometimes inside the house (more than we would like!). These floors work well with children. Laminate floors are scratch resistant. Although they are durable, it is best to install this type of flooring in homes where sharp objects that may scrape the floor are used near the floor at a minimum.

Keep the moisture under control to keep your laminate flooring looking its best! 

Hardwood Flooring 

Hardwood floors are natural and elegant. They require a bit more maintenance than other flooring styles but can last for years if cared for properly. Natural hardwood floors can scratch though, so if your animals (or children) are particularly rowdy, you might consider a floor that won’t scratch.

That’s not to say hardwood isn’t sturdy.  As the flooring choice of old, you can see many 100+ year old floors still looking beautiful in our area.  Just try not to roller skate or drag heavy furniture across your hardwood and you’ll have a floor you can enjoy for many, many years.

Vinyl Flooring 

With vinyl flooring, the choices are endless, as well as the benefits. Vinyl is comfortable on your feet, inexpensive and durable. This type of flooring will work well in any home. The down side to vinyl is that when it is damaged, the whole floor will need to be replaced, so take care with sharp objects.

That said, vinyl lasts for years, comes in many surprising looks and is an affordable and attractive choice that will work in almost any home.  Come see our vinyl selection to get an idea of what styles you like.

Cork Flooring

Cork Flooring is made from the bark of cork oak trees. It has a natural look that a lot of people love, but the soft, cushy feel is what makes cork flooring so special.

Cork flooring has a cushion like feel to it so it is great for people who have pains in their feet, back or hips.  It’s also an ideal flooring material for a child’s playroom, or anyone who likes the softness cork flooring provides.  It’s harvested sustainably, and is great for folks with allergies.

This flooring style can easily be stained if not properly cared for, so take care of it — it will last a long time if you do!
