Mid-South Flooring Experts
First impressions are lasting impressions, and flooring greets your family and friends with the first step into your home. What do your floors say? Are they welcoming and well taken care of… or do they need a little attention or complete replacement altogether? Upgrading your home flooring comes with a lot of benefits.
Types of Flooring
True hardwood flooring is made from a single piece of hardwood cut from a tree of your choice. The most popular hardwood floors are oak, cherry, and walnut. Choosing a wood type that matches the amount of foot traffic the room receives is important. Hardwood floors can last a lifetime if taken care of.
A more affordable alternative to hardwood flooring, engineered wood flooring is made by combining a top layer of genuine hardwood with multiple layers of ply plank. Engineered wood flooring looks like solid hardwood.
If you love the look of hardwood, but can’t work the cost into your budget, laminate flooring, also called “floating flooring” is a great choice. The top layer of laminate can look like wood, stone, ceramic, or even stained concrete.
Although bamboo is a type of hardwood, it’s often separated into a class of its own. It’s a sustainable and eco-friendly option that comes with a comparable hardness to oak. A natural bamboo floor has a very light wood color, but it can come in darker finishes as well.
Cork is another environmentally friendly flooring option. The material is harvested from tree bark without killing the tree. It has the same warm appearance of wood but with interesting grain patterns that include speckled and swirling patterns.
Tile floors come in a large variety of sizes, colors, and materials.
• Ceramic Tile – One of the most versatile flooring types, ceramic is made by combining a mixture of clay and shale, which is hardened in a kiln.
• Quarry Tile – Unglazed tiles that get their color from pigments added to the clay mixture. They usually have a rough texture to help prevent slips and falls.
• Porcelain Tile – Available in both glazed and unglazed, porcelain is one of the most durable types of tile flooring.
One of the most expensive, but durable flooring choices is stone. The stone floor tiles are made from many different types of stone including marble, travertine, ledger, granite, slate, and limestone.
Vinyl tiles and sheets are sometimes called resilient flooring. They provide a flexible and cushioned floor that is durable and maintenance-free. Vinyl is one of the most cost-effective choices when it comes to home flooring.
Carpet comes in more colors and textures than you can imagine, and is woven from a large variety of materials. Fiber density count is the best way to determine the quality and durability of carpet. Wool, nylon, acrylic, polyester, and polypropylene are the most common materials used in carpets.
