What Is The Best Flooring Choice For You?

When you are building a home or redecorating your current residence, choosing the type of flooring to install can be daunting.  There are just so many choices!  How can you make a wise decision that you won’t regret in a few months?  Following are a few questions that you should consider as you weigh your flooring options.

What Are You Using the Room For?

First of all, you want to think about the room where the flooring will be placed.  In some rooms where specific activities are routinely performed, functionality is a primary issue.  Is the flooring being installed in a bathroom or kitchen? If so, then you probably won’t want to use carpet.  Tile or vinyl are often good choices for these rooms.  You’ll want to remember that floors in kitchens and bathrooms will be exposed to water.  Additionally, kitchen floors are sure to be frequently subjected to dropped food.

What Makes You Feel Comfortable?

There are other concerns for other rooms in your home, like how comfortable you feel.  For example, in your family room, you may spend a lot of time lounging on your floor.  If so, you’ll want to pick something that will be comfortable to sit on.  Carpet may be your best choice in that situation.  For bedrooms, some people also like to have soft, thick carpeting under their feet when they wake up in the mornings.

How Hard Are You on Your Flooring?

Another factor you will want to consider is the impact you (and your family and pets) will have on your flooring.  Some families (especially those with kids and pets) will deliver significant wear and tear to flooring.  Others will be gentle on their floors.  Ask yourself what kind of family you have before you choose your flooring.

How Long Do You Expect Your Flooring to Last?

Typically when you install flooring, you aren’t thinking about when you will replace it.  However, you probably should.  If you want flooring that will last a long time, there are some options that are better than others.  For example, some tile flooring is extremely long-lasting and will serve you well for many years.  Many types of flooring will vary in longevity depending on the quality of materials used, which will also affect the price.

How Much Do You Want to Spend on Your Flooring?

Of course, price is also a determining factor.  In today’s market, there are so many options available to choose from.  These options cover a broad spectrum of prices.  You should be able to find one that fits your budget.  Just remember, as mentioned above, that lower priced options may not be as long-lasting as those that cost more and may need to be replaced sooner.

What Flooring Appeals to Your Personal Taste?

After considering all these factors and narrowing your options down, the final decision will probably be based on your own personal tastes.  Some people love carpet; others hate it.  Some people find tile cold and unappealing; others see it as elegant and upscale.  For some, wood adds a timeless touch to a room; to others, it looks dated.  It’s up to you.  What do you like?  Which flooring works with your décor?
