Unique Flooring Options for Your Home
If you are a homeowner who is thinking about putting down new flooring in your home this year, the endless choices you will be faced with is overwhelming. There are so many forms of new flooring to choose from today. Bamboo, laminate, carpet and cork and just a few of the most popular flooring options among homeowners. And with all the new, environmentally friendly floor covering products that are available at your local home improvement store, there’s even more choices for the homeowner who has no idea where to begin. We all know that having the right flooring underfoot can make a big difference in our home. But making a choice can definitely be daunting at the least, when trying to choose between laminate and bamboo flooring. The key to figuring out what the perfect flooring is for your home is to ask yourself a few questions about the room you’re considering for the new flooring. Questions like what is the room used for, is it a high traffic area? Are there pets? Kids playing?, then pick the flooring that is right for you. Carpet probably wouldn’t be a smart choice for a room that kids are constantly running through and where the family pet is allowed. When you’re redoing your floors, the latest and greatest innovation is the new ‘green’, environmentally friendly flooring. This makes an excellent and gorgeous addition to any room, because it’s stain resistant and easy to clean. Hardwood, bamboo, even Brazilian cherry flooring make very environmentally sound choices.
