Three tips for choosing flooring

Three tips for choosing flooring

Decide how your floors will fit into your interior design scheme, and your flooring upgrade is off to a good start.

A floor with a bold and colorful design can be the highlight of the room, or an earthy tone or subtle shade can enhance other elements of your decor. There are many styles to compare at Select Floors, a flooring store that's located in Marietta, Georgia.

1. Waterproof flooring protects you against mishaps large and small.

Flooring that repels water is durable, and thus, it will serve you well for many years. So naturally, waterproof porcelain tile is denser and harder than ceramic tile, which is covered with a glaze to make it waterproof.

Top-quality luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring are one-hundred percent waterproof, while waterproof laminate brands can usually tolerate water for about one day.

2. There’s no ‘right’ flooring material for your home.

New floors are adaptable, which means you can expect them to have a long life if you choose the right type of material.

For example, textured hardwood, luxury vinyl that includes a thick protective surface layer, and highly stain-resistant carpeting are ideal for pet owners and active families.

In contrast, a colorful polyester carpet is best for low-traffic spaces.

3. Natural materials are the most durable.

Stone and porcelain tile and hardwood planks are some of the most durable new floors you can choose, and wool carpeting is more durable than synthetic carpeting.

You can't go wrong by investing in these materials, especially since it's likely that high-end floors will be beneficial if you sell your home. However, if this isn't feasible, opt for a top-quality luxury vinyl brand.
