Refurbishing or replacing the flooring in your home is a monumental undertaking and not an activity that you will likely do again for years. If you have decided to replace worn floors, you have a diverse array of options in flooring and floor covering materials to choose from including concrete, ceramic tile, granite, marble, hardwood, laminate, linoleum, cork, or carpet.

The challenge is in choosing flooring that is the optimum choice for your individual circumstances and not just settling for a flooring material that is currently fashionable or trendy. Choose what is right for you and break tradition.

Lifestyle

Several factors come into play when it comes to choosing the flooring material that is the best choice for your lifestyle and budget. Climate plays a significant role. Will you be tracking in mud, snow, or sand several months out of each year? Will the floor receive heavy traffic? How much maintenance is required?

Do you want to create a warm and cozy ambiance or a cool and relaxing atmosphere? Do you have children or pets? Does anyone in the household have limited mobility? What is your favorite color?

Tile

If you are inspired by the décor of Europe, tile is noted for ease of maintenance. A quick mop down and tile is clean and sparkling. Ceramic, granite or marble tile floors are ideal for entryways, laundry rooms, pet areas, kitchens, and bathrooms. Use your imagination and consider tile for any area subject to spills and tracked-in dirt that would harm carpeting, laminate or hardwood floors.

A hard surface such as tile is much easier to navigate with a cane, walker or wheelchair and does not trap and harbor germs and bacteria the way carpeting tends to do.

If you are ready to swap your old carpeted floors for a new tile floor but worry that tile is cold in winter, thermostatically controlled heat tape, installed under the tile can warm traffic areas that might encounter bare feet in winter. Over tile floors, area rugs showcase a conversation area or add warmth to tiles floors throughout the home.

Hardwood Flooring

When it comes to choices in hardwood flooring, again there are many. The straight lines of hardwood flooring home compliment a contemporary décor. If you have a smaller home such as a condo, the long and wide plank design of hardwood flooring will make the space seem larger. A third style, strip flooring, uses narrow strips to create unusual patterns.

Hardwood flooring comes in a wide range of types of wood and stain color. Light colored wood like oak and birch brighten a dark room or choose the darker shades like cherry or walnut if you wish to make a dramatic statement. The color of your flooring has a major impact on the ambiance of the home.

Carpet

As one of the best flooring insulators, carpeting saves energy and is one of the best ways to reduce your utility bill. Carpeting doesn’t just seem warmer; it insulates up to 17 times better than other flooring materials by reducing the transfer of cold or heat from radiating up through the floor.
