Consider How You Use the Space to Choose the Best Flooring
The purpose of a space is probably the most important factor to consider as you choose flooring. How does each room in your home get used on a daily basis?
Are the Rooms in Your Home as Functional as Possible?
Different rooms require different flooring options based on how they’re used. For example, if you’re remodeling a space that’s constantly exposed to water—like the kitchen, laundry room, bathroom, or basement—you’ll want to look into flooring types that are more resistant to water damage.
Think about friction, too. Flooring like luxury vinyl tyles and planks (LVT/LVP) have more friction than other types, so you’re less likely to slip if they get wet.
How Much Time Do You Want to Dedicate to Cleaning and Maintenance?
When choosing flooring, maintenance is a key factor to consider. How often do you want to clean the floors in your home? Choosing lower-maintenance flooring types, like LVT and LVP, can help save you time and energy while still making the space look put-together.
However, even high-maintenance flooring can have its benefits. For example, engineered hardwood might take a little more work, but it provides that classic and homey look many homeowners want.
Think About the Property Value of Your Home
As a homeowner, the value of your property is important to you. Someday, you’ll probably be looking to sell, and when you do, you’ll benefit if you’ve taken the time to make your home attractive to buyers. Flooring is a factor here.
Durable and Long-Lasting Flooring Keeps Your Home Looking Like New
For many homebuyers, hardwood flooring is a must-have. In that case, engineered hardwood is an excellent substitute for solid hardwood. The surface layer of this material is still genuine hardwood, so the part you see and walk on will still be real wood. However, the layer of plywood underneath makes this a long-lasting and durable option that’ll still look brand-new even after many years.
The Right Flooring Gives Your Space Character
You can do a lot with flooring to help you change the room into a space that feels great for you and potential future buyers. For example, flooring with larger tiles can really open up a space and make it feel even bigger. This is ideal for gathering spaces like the kitchen. For smaller, more intimate spaces, like a living room, smaller tiles can create a cozy atmosphere.
Lighter-colored tiles can also reflect the natural sunlight from that big window in your dining room and brighten up the space. If you want to prevent a glare on your TV from the skylight, consider a darker-colored floor.
