How to Choose the Best Flooring for Your Home

Tips for Finding the Right Flooring for Your Home

Installing new flooring can be exciting but also intimidating. The pressure to pick the right flooring can be overwhelming and making the wrong decision can be costly.

Your instinct might be to pick the most expensive or whatever looks the best. However, your flooring is an investment in your home and something you’ll have to live with for years to come. It’s important to take all aspects of your lifestyle into consideration when deciding on a floor.

Where Is the Floor Going?

Floors installed in high-moisture rooms like bathrooms need to be made of a more durable material than floors destined for a hallway or other comparatively dry area of your home. When installing floors in an area that sees a lot of moisture, you’ll want to consider flooring that isn’t porous and can be easily dried and cleaned. These flooring materials hold up best to moisture

  • Concrete
  • Ceramic
  • Porcelain
  • Vinyl

What’s Your Budget?

Your budget might be the first thing on your mind when picking a new floor. There are several budget-friendly options available, such as laminate or engineered wood.

Of course, there are also a few different high-end floors made with unique materials and designs. These are intended to give your home a unique flair. Expensive flooring options take more work to maintain in the long run, though.

Do You Have Kids or Pets?

As an adult, not only will you take the time to maintain your floors, but you’ll be careful not to scratch or scuff them. Kids and pets feel no such restrictions. If you have a lot of traffic through your home or have kids and pets, you’ll want to get flooring material that won’t scratch easily or become damaged by the smallest spill.

Choosing the right flooring involves a lot more factors than you may have considered. Whatever you envision as your perfect flooring, McCarren Supply has a variety of options so that you can find the ideal fit for your home and your lifestyle.
