Renovating Your Flooring

If you are working on renovating your home, it can be a minefield if you don't know where to begin, and even if you don't know your vinyl from your laminate, let's lay down the basics when it comes to picking your ideal floor.

Vinyl

Vinyl flooring is very durable and is suitable for almost every room in the house, and you will tend to find them as sheets or tiles. You can get plenty of information from a vinyl flooring installation company on the benefits of vinyl, but it is incredibly cheap. The types of vinyl you can get include rotogravure ,where the pattern and the color is printed on the finish side only making the texture difficult to clean on occasion. You can also get sheet vinyl which is very popular with bathrooms, kitchens, and hallways, which come in many different patterns and styles. You can also get vinyl tiles, but because they are laid individually, it is more likely you will get dirt caught in between them. And inlaid vinyl is more durable, looks very good and tends to last for many years in comparison to rotogravure vinyl.

Hardwood

One of the main benefits of hardwood is that it can last a lot longer than most of the other options and can be refinished almost an unlimited number of times, and you can also restain them to change their appearance which is handy if you want to change the whole style of your home. The various styles of hardwood include unfinished which gives you unlimited color stain options, but the unfinished flooring needs to be sanded after it's installed, putting that room out of action for a few days. Prefinished is something that many people go for because of it eliminating sawdust and finish vapors. Solid or engineered flooring has two or more layers of woods much like plywood, and while the top layer has a hardwood veneer, the lower tends to be softwood.

Carpet

If you want softness under your feet or something to invoke a more relaxing feel, then this is your best choice. The main rule when it comes to picking a carpet is, the heavier it is, the better it will hold up in the long run. However, you shouldn't pick a carpet just based on the weight, you need to look at the density of the carpets, the height, as well as the type of fiber, but you can pick different strengths of carpets for different rooms depending on the “foot traffic” in each part of the house. If you are trying to cut down on the cost, it's best to pick the heavier product four rooms with the most foot traffic and go for the lower weight ones for rooms such as studies or junk rooms.

Whatever you decide to install, it always needs to be suitable for your lifestyle and it's always best to take into account the durability of the material, how easy it is to clean, how resistant it is to moisture, as well as if you have any particular allergies. There's a lot to bear in mind when picking the right flooring.
