How To Pick the Right Floor

What is the appropriate flooring for your space? At Floor Boys, we recognize that there may not be a “perfect” flooring choice, but your selection can depend on several factors. Of course, these will include your personal taste and sense of style, but they should also include factors regarding how the space will be used and the elements it will be subjected to.

That’s why we’ve put together a simple, easy-to-use guide to some common flooring materials and the positive and negative aspects of their use in your home or business.

HARDWOOD

 

Advantages:
• Hardwood is easy to maintain and to clean.
• It resists scratches and dents.
• It keeps its original colors.
• Hardwood adds value and a rich look to any room.
• Even after lengthy use, it can be sanded and refinished to look like new.
Disadvantages:
• Hardwood is expensive.
• It will likely need professional installation.
• It is susceptible to moisture.
• It needs occasional waxing or refinishing.

CARPET

 

Benefits:
• Carpeting adds warmth and atmosphere to a space.
• Carpeting provides sound and temperature insulation.
• Carpet adds decorative elements with texture, pattern, and color.
• Carpeting provides a cushioned surface to minimize injuries from falls and
damage from dropped items.

Disadvantages:
• Carpet easily absorbs stains and moisture and is not good for areas that
retain humidity.
• Carpeting is maintenance-heavy with frequent vacuuming and at least an
annual deep cleaning.
• Carpeting tends to hold dirt and allergens.
• You will not want to use in entrance ways that sustain heavy dirt and
moisture.

TILE & STONE

 

Advantages:
• Long lasting and durable.
• Low maintenance.
• Stylish.
• Excellent for use in high traffic entrance ways.

Disadvantages:
• Heavy and hard to work with.
• Expensive.
• Has a tendency to feel “cold”.

LAMINATE & VINYL 

 

Advantages:
• Inexpensive.
• Easy to install.
• Provide a major improvement quickly.
• Easy to maintain.

Disadvantages:
• Does not add much real value to your home.
• When it gets severely damaged, it will need replacement.
