Design Trend: Flooring
When remodeling or building a new home there are numerous design choices and decisions to consider. We live in a world where everything is customizable and made to fit our personalities, and our homes are no different. The possibilities are endless with ways to make your home feel more like you. Flooring is a major design feature that can make a house a home, and home your sanctuary. With so many types and styles there is something for everyone.
The first option of flooring that has remained the top choice for years is hardwood. Hardwood floors are classic and last for generations. It is the perfect choice for anyone that wants to add a touch of warmth to their home. While hardwood is one of the more expensive flooring choices, the value it adds to a home is unbeatable. The beautiful natural patterns of the wood create a one of a kind look and is a show stopper in any home. There are many different types of wood and stains to choose from, so hardwood works well with any style. The color never fades and the only maintenance it requires besides being swept and vacuumed regularly– is being refinished every so often, depending on wear and tear.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
The second type of flooring has grown in popularity over the last several years and is becoming a go-to choice. LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile) and LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank) are the perfect choice for families with young children or pets. LVT is a vinyl product meant to look like tile or stone, while LVP is meant to look like hardwood. It is super low maintenance, water resistant and easy to clean. It comes in many different styles, colors and textures. It is also very cost effective and extremely durable. LVT can go in any room including basements and, in most cases, can even be laid directly over existing floors.
The next option of flooring is tile. Tile is becoming increasingly popular because you can put it anywhere. It is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms and entry ways. It is highly durable and low maintenance. Most are treated with a glaze and are water and stain resistant. Best of all there are so many design possibilities. You can go bold with patterned tile, keep it simple with a solid color or mix the two and get the best of both worlds. There are also several types of tile that are meant to look like wood or stone if that is the style you want. Tile is also generally cost effective depending on the brand or style that you choose. With tile the sky is the limit.
