Choosing the Perfect Flooring Material

If you are looking at flooring for a room you must first ask yourself what the priories are for that particular room that you are going to be installing flooring material into. Will the room have heavy or light traffic? Will you need it to be easy to maintain or durable? Are you after style or economy?

Once you know exactly what your flooring priorities are you can move on to the next determining factor. Now you must ask yourself if this will be a long term investment or a shorter term. If the long term flooring is what you are looking for then you will want to consider more durable flooring materials. Too many people make the mistake of putting expensive flooring into a home that they end up selling in less than five years.

Once you know what the needs are and how long you plan to benefit from a particular flooring material choice you can move to the next deciding factor. The budget is always one that you must consider, but even if money is tight that does not mean you should disregard nicer flooring options -- you just need to be more creative.

The Most Expensive Flooring Is Not Always The Best Choice.

If you are looking at possibly installing wood flooring you may be able to find a laminated wood flooring material that is much less expensive and does the job just as well. If you are looking at installing flooring material in a room that is not a high priority on your list you may still be able to find some nice high end flooring at closeout prices. The main reason people do not shop for bargains in flooring is because their choices may be limited to one or two styles. This works just fine if style is not as important as value.

As with hardwood floors or parquet floors, the best method for care is to provide preventative maintenance. Parquet or wood floors should be swept often. Dirt, sand and outside debris can easily scratch any type of wood flooring. Keeping the debris off of your wood floors is one of the best ways to maintain the newness to your parquet floors.Avoid water spills and enjoy the beauty of your parquet floor.

Best Regards

I'm agree It always looked to me very beautiful laminate or parquet with a small rug at the center My dining room is with some laminate and looks great to me, but even if it's not a natural wood you should be careful. It's scratches very fast if the quality is not good.

I agree with Marie about the preventative maintenance. It will keep your parquet and hardwood floor beautiful. I would add that it's recommended to keep away your pets. Their nails are very dangerous about it,too.

I have floor boards everywhere except in the bathroom and laundry. I find them easy to keep clean and they look fantastic still even after nearly 10 years of use.

What can you tell me about bamboo floors. Their advantages and disadvantages. I read that they are "eco floors", but couldn't find enough information.
