Which flooring is right for you? Is it laminate, vinyl, hardwood, or the new eco-friendly choices like bamboo or cork?

Selecting the best flooring for your home is far more complicated than just finding a floor that looks good. If you are thinking of changing the flooring in your home, then the decision on what floor to use depends on each room’s use. 

This article will guide you on the different flooring for different rooms.

The Living Area

The living area in your house is the most frequently used room, especially if you have visitors often or children. Thanks to hardwood’s durability and warm nature, it continues to be the number one selection for most homeowners.

The key to finding the perfect flooring for your living room is to match the entryway floor as one flows into the other. A hard-wearing floor like Engineered Wood Flooring or laminate gives the room a warm and natural feel. 

Consider putting a rug under the dining table for easy cleaning when spills happen, and they definitely will!

The Master and Family Bedroom

If your master bedroom connects to an en-suite bathroom, then the flooring colours should coordinate. Others invest heavily in hardwood for their bedrooms, but it’s not comfiest for that: select plush carpeting, laminate, or wood flooring for your master bedroom. 

For the other family bedrooms, you can play along with the flooring colours. If the bedrooms are not close to the living room, then you can feed the flooring colour from the rooms’ décor as long as they don’t clash. 

Kids’ bedrooms should have a hard flooring surface like the laminate because of the spills associated with children.

The Kitchen

If you are looking to make your kitchen floor durable and still look good, then porcelain kitchen tile flooring is the best for you.

Between the food spills and dirt, kitchen floors tend to get a little messy and grimy. To reduce the amount of time used on maintenance and cleaning, select those water-resistant flooring materials, easy to clean and not prone to stains. 

These flooring designs include vinyl, hardwood, cork, linoleum, and limestone.

The Bathroom

The set of tones on the bathroom flooring system should be captivating to the eye and show your style.

Some of the top contenders for the bathroom flooring include; ceramic tile, carpet, laminate, hardwood, vinyl, and natural stone. 

Once you have selected the perfect flooring for your bathroom, consider adding a thing or two to compliment it. Add some drama to your shower enclosure, Store and More.

Selecting the best flooring for each room can be difficult. But to make it easy, you can first consult a professional designer for tips and guidance. Look at the top things you need to consider when choosing your home flooring, like price, durability, color options, installation, future challenges, and the maintenance requirement. Also, you should make sure that you commit to flooring that you can afford and maintain in the long run as this can save you time and money.
