How to Choose the Best Flooring for Your Home

Flooring can often make or break the flow of a space. Here are four things to consider when trying to decide what would be the best flooring for your home and lifestyle.

How to Choose the Best Flooring for Your Home

1: Space. What areas of your home need new flooring? If you’re choosing flooring for a high-moisture area like a basement or bathroom, your options will be a bit more limited than if you were working on the main living space, since only certain kinds of flooring will hold up well in that environment.

2: For the Whole Family. Do you have small children or large pets? If so, then you’ll probably want to look at the most durable and stain-resistant flooring options available to help ensure you get the most use out of your new flooring before having to replace or repair it. If there’s an elderly relative in the family, a softer option like carpeting may be better as it provides both insulation and a bit of cushion in the event of a fall.

3: Maintenance. Keeping high-traffic areas covered by throw rugs will help reduce wear, but all floors will require at least basic cleaning. It’s important to choose flooring that won’t cause a lot of extra work for you, especially if your schedule is already full.

4: Price Point. The price difference between kinds of flooring can sometimes be a useful tie-breaker. Knowing your price range is often a huge help when trying to narrow down your options. Higher-end flooring if generally more durable, but it can also require much more maintenance than lower-cost options.
