Your home has floors, what you do with them is up to you, if you have the means to make changes to them anyway. Home flooring is kind of a preferential thing. Some people like carpet and some people don’t But carpet, luckily, isn’t the only option.
You may have a certain preference when it comes to flooring depending on the room you are in as well. Most people wouldn’t want a carpeted kitchen, and many would prefer not having a carpeted bathroom as well. Here are a few flooring ideas to consider for your home.
Epoxy flooring is the stuff they use in stores and other businesses, but it is something you could consider for your home (if you wanted to). It does take some polishing and cleaning and may make little ones slip and fall in your home, though. However, it will give your floor a nice shiny look.
Consider the people coming and going from your home. This is a good lasting option for your floors, but if you want it to stay shiny you’re going to have to put some elbow grease into it. It will hold up well to kids coming and going, just keep it dry so no one slips and falls!
Tile flooring is a normal view in many homes, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. There are numerous different options for tile materials and styles. Tiled floors come with its own cleaning needs as well. It’s not just about sweeping and mopping.
The grout that holds your tiles together can become stained and you may find yourself on your hands and knees cleaning with a toothbrush. The glue can also stop sticking, which will cause lifting tiles that can trip people up and be an eyesore.
If you want a more stylish look, wood flooring is an excellent choice. You can get real wood flooring or stuff that just looks like would but is really laminate. Real wood flooring will need some upkeep as well.
You may want to get a nice polish on your wood floor, to keep it looking nice and keeping scuffs out of it. Put protective coasters on your furniture feet as well, to help protect your floor.
Then there is carpeting. For most people, this is a must for bedroom floors, and often for living room floors. However, some people prefer wood floors in their living room instead. Carpeting gives you plenty of options as well.
You can get carpet that has really short and thick fibers or ones with long fibers (like a shag carpet). Then you have all sorts of color options. You’ll probably want your carpet to enhance the colors in your furniture or of your curtains.
