Flooring types

Hard floors: includes marble, brick, and tiles, slate. They are quiet expensive but they last long and can be easily cleaned.

Greenest floor: it is bamboo flooring, rapid growth rate of bamboo to minimize land use, one of the most underrated aspects of green remodeling.

Wood floors (plank hardwood floorings): can be easily cleaned with a broom and damp cloth. It is long lasting and needs to be polished quiet often.

Tiles: Tiles often represent an especially good choice for areas that experience high traffic. Tiles are durable and have the benefit of being easier to install than stone and so they are often ideal for wet areas

Laminate flooring: Laminate carries the advantage of being one of the most durable flooring types. It is often thought of as a ‘cheaper version of wood’ and it is easy to install and resistant to fading and staining

Designing for each rooms

Kitchen/bathrooms: when choosing floorings for your bathrooms/kitchen you have to bear in mind that flooring has to be safe and must be able to withstand moisture. Best suitable tiling for these areas will be peel and stick tiles or linoleum and vinyl.

Bedrooms: best suited would be carpets as they will keep feet warm, but consider that if the person that sleeps in the room suffers from allergies tiles will be suited.

Living room: Hardwood flooring will be best suited as this gives a very refreshing and attractive and refined look to the room.

Entryways:  the best suitable flooring types for entry ways would be hardwood floors with a rug carpet over them.

Hope these tips will help you choose the flooring type that would be most suitable top your home.
