If you do a search on all available flooring types in market, your search would literally return thousands of hits. That’s because the options on floor types are increasing in numbers everyday. So if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the choices, here are a few popular ones to give you a few ideas.
Carpeting comes in many different kinds like wool, nylon, pile and Berber. I recommend asking a professional interior designer if you’re thinking about which carpet to choose. For places that get a lot of traffic, like the living room, you can go with durable wool. Berber would be a great choice for family rooms. Price ranges between $15 and $30 per yard.
If you’re into sleek designer looks, you can try ceramic tiles. The options for these are also endless. You can have it in all sizes and colors and you can’t go wrong with it. The price for installation varies around $8 and $15 per square foot.
Polished concrete is also growing in popularity. It’s very durable and it’s not very expensive. You can put it in places which get a lot of abuse and you’ll find it’s very easy to maintain. More and more people are discovering this great new look for an old material and loving it.
These are just a few ideas to think about. There’s a lot more to look for and all you have to do is make your choice. But I find it’s always best to ask professionals for help when you’re choosing because you do not want to make an expensive mistake.
