Every room in your house is different and all of them will have unique needs. For example, patios require more durable flooring materials which is why screened patio companies recommend vinyl mats for this area. Living areas can be more relaxed with carpeting as the number one option. There are no rules about perfect flooring materials for every room, but this only makes it harder to decide which material you should use.
Professionals weigh a number of factors when recommending floor materials to homeowners. Here are a few pointers from our experts at Envy Home Services about how to find the best flooring option for any room in your home.
Longevity is the biggest draw of traditional hardwood floors. However, like most wood products, they can be prone to water damage. This is why bathroom renovation companies do not even consider them for use in bathrooms and kitchens. Regardless, these floors can look their best at any time. This material is eco-friendly, sustainable, and, with the right amount of care, long-lasting.
Carpets, on the other hand, are easier and quicker to install than hardwood, which affects its cost, often being leagues below their hardwood counterparts. Of course, you are trading its low price for a shorter life span, as carpets tend to require replacements more frequently. Active families should also be careful as carpets are easily stained. Pets pose a similar risk.
Carpets hide dirt impressively so they don’t need to be cleaned as often. Depending on the material, carpets are also warmer and less noisy than hardwood. While their use is rare in relaxing sunrooms, it’s not completely unheard of by sunroom addition contractors. Regardless, they are an excellent way to promote a cozier and more inviting environment in any room they are used in.
