What’s the part of your home that you are in physical contact with the most? I’ll give you one guess. If you said “the floor,” then you’re absolutely right! In fact, the decision about what material to use as durable flooring for your home is one of the most important as you design your space.
Flooring is expensive and time-consuming to replace, so it’s crucial that you make the right choice the first time. In this article, we take a look at the most durable flooring types and what the best flooring option is for each type of room.
Room X Room Durable Flooring for Your Home
Think about the environment of a kitchen. You have food prep going on. There’s water splashing about when the dishes are being put into the dishwasher. There’s also a lot of activity in the kitchen because you use it frequently to make your meals.
That’s why a hard flooring option is a right call for the kitchen. The most durable of flooring types for the kitchen is no doubt porcelain tile. Porcelain is scratch resistant making mopping and sweeping also very easy.
If you get the flooring installation done right, then you also don’t have to worry about cracks forming where dirt gets stuck.
The bedroom is a very different vibe from the kitchen. You want it to be cozy and conducive to a good night’s sleep.
Carpet is an excellent option for the bedroom, but it is important to remember that carpet isn’t nearly as durable as other hard flooring options. That’s why you can elect to instead have hardwood on the floor and place a rug over it as needed.
⎆ Living Room
Flooring options abound for the living room. The one that you choose will depend on the setup of your room. Do you have tons of natural light flooding in, or are there not enough windows for that?
If the former is the case, then you want to get a flooring option that is heat resistant so that the floor will stay cool to the touch in even the hottest months of summer. Such options as natural stone tile and hardwood will do the job.
However, both of these options are expensive. For the budget-conscious, laminate flooring can be a good substitute.
For the bathroom, it’s hard to go wrong with a simple porcelain tile option. Not only is the tile going to be durable, but it will also be easy to clean and mop up any post-shower drips.
