One decision that you will need to make while renovating your house is the type of flooring you want. Some people choose to make individual selections for different portions of the home, while others find that a single flooring throughout the entire house creates an appealing aesthetic. To help you decide, we’ve highlighted the features of some of the most popular flooring choices below.
Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP)
Luxury Vinyl Plank (often shortened to LVP) is one of the most popular choices for flooring throughout the entire home. Providing the look of hardwoods, LVP is more durable and can be used in kitchens and bathrooms without concerns for water damage.
LVP can often be installed over your existing flooring, not requiring demolition, provided they are flat and in good condition. The ease of installation makes them an affordable option that means freeing up more room in your budget for other priorities. People also love LVP because it is virtually indestructible, perfect for families with pets and children in the home.
Tile and Natural Stone
Tile and natural stone requires the existing flooring to be demolished and should be laid by experienced tile workers. It can be more costly and time consuming to install, and can make for louder acoustics and a colder feel in the home, but it a timeless choice that will last for decades. If you are looking for something that will last a lifetime, tile is a great option. Natural stone is similarly timeless, but may require a bit more maintenance to keep it in great condition.
Hardwood floors provide a classic look that is beautiful and warm, and can work in nearly any part of the home. The exception is bathrooms, where standing water or potential for minor flooding can wreak havoc on wood that requires you to replace part or all of the room’s flooring over time. Hardwood flooring can be ordered in a wide range of widths, stains, and finishes to suit the aesthetic of the home, and though not as durable as it’s LVP cousin it can be refinished in some cases when wear and tear begins to show.
Carpet is an obvious choice for a soft, warm look. It is most popular for bedrooms, and some entertaining spaces like theaters and media rooms. Keep in mind that carpet requires more upkeep to maintain its cleanliness and texture, and can be less than ideal if you have a lot of pets or kids in the home. Choosing the right carpet also involves selecting a high quality pad to go beneath it, which can act to provide additional cushions, minimize odors, and more.
Concrete can be finished in a variety of ways to provide beautiful statement flooring. This is a favorite for many people who are in search of a minimal, modern aesthetic. Concrete flooring is one of the most difficult to remove, so keep this in mind as you consider how long you would like the look and feel of concrete. If you are not familiar with this option, take a look at all the different ways concrete can be polished, stained, stamped, and finished to create a unique design.
