Choosing the right flooring is one of the most important decisions you can make when doing Newport News home remodeling. Fortunately, today’s homeowners have a wealth of options when it comes to selecting the right materials. Here’s a look at some of the most popular flooring choices:
- Hardwood is a classic option. It’s available in either thin stripes or somewhat thicker planks. It comes in a wide range of colors and styles to match virtually any taste. It stands up to heavy use and in most cases, requires only occasional maintenance to look its best. However, some people consider it cold and utilitarian. It’s possible to soften this effect somewhat with place rugs, but for many homeowners, the concerns about appearance remain. Also, if you live in a sandy area, then you may need to remove or wash off your shoes before entering the home. Sand-covered shoes can quickly ruin the appearance of a hardwood floor, requiring expensive repairs.
- Laminate is one of those products homeowners either love or hate, depending on their preferences and personal experiences. Laminate comes in a wide range of thicknesses and quality levels. So it’s important to choose a Newport News home remodeling contractor known for using high-grade materials. Like hardwood, laminate offers easy maintenance and durability.
- “Wood” tile flooring is growing in popularity, not only for kitchens and restrooms but also as the primary floor covering throughout the home. It’s especially popular among devotees of modern and contemporary architectural styles. You should know, however, that these floors are not actually made of wood; they’re simply designed to mimic wood’s grain and other features. Nonetheless, if you enjoy the warmth and visual interest of wood but want a more care-free option, this material is worth considering.
