Whether it’s a lustrous, natural wood floor, porcelain tile, marble flooring, or even linoleum flooring, a new floor is definitely a room-transforming thing that can be the foundation of a good home remodeling design and can be just the thing to put that hard-to-decorate room in order.
With all the many kinds of floor refinishing and the many types of materials to choose from, practically anything is possible. For the living room, for instance, you can have hardwood floors, ceramic tile flooring, marble flooring, laminate tile, carpets, and travertine to mention just a few. This is also true for kitchen flooring and bathroom flooring, where the options are just as varied. However, as floor refinishing is not only a matter of fashion but also of function, not all types of flooring installation are appropriate for every area of the house. For the bath, for example, you would want to choose the most durable materials, such as ceramic tile flooring, marble flooring, and travertine. This endless variety can make purchasing a new floor a complex and confusing process.
When choosing your flooring installation, the first step is to decide on the general category of your choice. If your passion is hardwood floors, there are many standard and exotic woods to fit your personal tastes and design – from pine flooring, which is perfect for that “cabin in the woods” look, to oak flooring that can be stained light, dark, and anything in between and is also easy to design around since there is no shortage of oak furniture. Cherry, walnut, and maple flooring are also great choices to go with, as is bamboo flooring, which is favored and highly recommended by environmentalists due to its positive environmental profile. Tiles can also be a great choice for practically everywhere in the house with a huge variety of colors, sizes, and patterns for porcelain tile, ceramic tile, travertine, and marble flooring to mention just a few.
The bottom line is since, for many interior designers, the floor is the centerpiece to design around and is something you don’t often remodel, think it through with a professional and check what can work best for the kitchen flooring, the bathroom flooring, and other areas of the house. Look at all the hardwood floors available or laminate flooring, which simulates wood and can be a nice alternative. Compare real tile and laminate tile, which is also amazingly effective at imitating ceramic tile, stone, travertine, marble tile, and other materials.
Lastly, for best results with your home remodeling and flooring installation project, remember to find the right floor refinishing and installation company.
