4 Beautiful and Hardworking Flooring Options for Your Home

Thinking about installing flooring in your new home or replacing the old flooring in your existing home?

You are making a great decision! Today’s flooring options are numerous, with a nearly endless variety of colors and patterns. Besides being beautiful and functional, new floors add tremendous value to your home.

Here’s a quick look at some of the most popular flooring options.

HardwoodHardwood floors come in a wide variety of styles. They are durable, easy to clean and maintain, and give your home timeless beauty. Since each piece of wood has a unique grain, no two hardwood floors are identical.

Carpet–For some homeowners, nothing replaces the feel of a soft carpet under their feet. Carpet is quiet, comfortable, and warm. There are many colors, styles, textures, and patterns to choose from.

Laminate–According to the North American Laminate Flooring Association, laminate flooring is comprised of a hybrid of materials fused together through a unique lamination process:

  • A transparent, protective wear layer is highly resistant to dogs, cats, chairs, and even high heels.
  • The decorative layer provides a high definition, highly detailed image, simulating everything from hardwood to marble to stone.
  • A high-density fiberboard core offers impact resistance, stability, and long-lasting durability.
  • A layer comprised of melamine resin offers additional structural stability and moisture resistance.
  • Underlayment is a requirement for any installation, absorbing minor imperfections in the sub-floor, reducing some noise when walking on the floor, and softening some of the impact. Some underlayments also offer a moisture barrier on one side, which is a good idea for bathroom and wet area installations.
