So, which are the best flooring options for every room? I explain below:
What is The Best Flooring Option for Living Room?
The living room of a home is one area where there is more foot movement and traffic. Guests and visitors are often welcomed in the living. Hence, the floor in the room must be tough, durable and stylish. The best flooring option for this room would be cork, linoleum, wood and carpet. All these flooring options are available in wide range of varieties, styles and budget. They can add durability and beauty to the living room. However, I recommend not to install carpet flooring in the living room because it attracts too much dust.
What is The Best Flooring Option for Kitchen?
The kitchen is one area which is too much exposed to moisture, water, oil, and foot movement. Hence, the best flooring option for the kitchen must be resistant to water and scratch and must require little maintenance. The best flooring options for the kitchen are – Ceramic Tiles, Stone and Linoleum. All these flooring materials offer resistance to water, moisture etc. They are also easy to clean and require little maintenance.
What is The Best Flooring Option for Dining Room?
The dining room is an area in the home where people gather and have get-together and enjoy food. It must have flooring that is durable and stylish and must add to the décor of the room. The air quality in the room must be healthy. Hence the floor must be Eco-friendly and healthy. Wooden floors are the best choice for this room. Wood adds natural beauty to the room. Engineered wooden flooring and laminated wooden floors are available in wide range of style and designs and is also healthy and durable.
What are The Best Flooring Options for Bedroom?
Bedroom is one area where people sleep and relax and spend most hours of their life. Therefore, the flooring must be extremely healthy, durable and Eco-friendly. If the bedroom is for adults, install wooden flooring. Engineered wooden flooring’s are available in wide varieties and choices and are Eco-friendly, healthy and durable.
If the bedroom is for children, linoleum is the best choice. It offers resistance from scratch and is easy to clean. Remember, children can create lot of mess in their room. Also use products that are free from VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) for better air quality.
