Here are four flooring choices for you to install at home. There are a lot more but here are a few of them:
Solid Hardwood Flooring is very durable. This makes it the perfect choice for open floor plans. It’s also warmer on your bare feet and easier on your back than tile flooring. It isn’t recommended for high-moisture areas like the kitchen or bathrooms unless the hardwood has been sealed.
Engineered Wood Flooring is a great alternative to using solid hardwoods. Constructed in a cross-grain fashion, this flooring is even stronger than solid pieces of wood. It’s a much better choice for kitchen remodeling and it’s more suitable for bathroom flooring, too. You can even consider this flooring option below grade (basement level). It can be installed directly on concrete without a sub-floor.
Bamboo Flooring is really popular in this Eco-friendly era. It costs more than hardwood flooring but it’s much more durable. It’s okay for kitchens and bathrooms when sealed. Laminate Flooring is the most economical option when you want a traditional look. It’s a good choice for high-moisture areas.
Marble Flooring gives unique results with variations in color and pattern. Marble can be polished to a high-gloss finish. Use floor mats for kitchens and bathrooms; marble is awfully slippery when wet.
