How to Choose Your Flooring, Advice from a Flooring Installation Specialist

Proudly Serving Dallas, Fort Worth & Surrounding Areas For Over 50 Years

When you’re going about choosing flooring for your home, it can easily get overwhelming. It’s much more complicated than walking into a flooring installation store, picking out samples and placing them on your floors. There are all sorts of outside variables that could affect how well the flooring will perform, including the installation process and price of the flooring on top of choosing between two different textures. Don’t fret, Texas Hardwood Flooring has served Plano for years and can offer dynamic feedback and knowledge so that you can proceed with whatever flooring will fit that room best with confidence.

To begin, pick a room that you want to improve and take into account a couple of important factors: the amount of moisture the flooring will endure, its durability, and the cost. There are other factors, of course, but these are the hard and fast rules that will guide you to a fundamentally good decision. In this case, style options are, of course, completely up to you.

Moisture

If the flooring is going to be installed where it will probably experience a fair amount of moisture, that will have an effect on what flooring you should have installed. If you’re furnishing the bathroom, kitchen, or basement with new flooring, you’ll need something like concrete, ceramic, vinyl or porcelain. If you were hoping for hardwood flooring, you can look into the luxury vinyl hardwood. It sounds and feels like hardwood, but has the moisture resistance you’ll need. However, if moisture is not going to be a huge obstacle in this room, the sky is still the limit as far as the kind of flooring you can use.

Pets And Kids

Pets and children are hard on every surface they can get their paws on. However, this goes both ways. If you’re trying to put new flooring in a room that sees quite a bit of abuse, you might pursue a flooring with a high level of durability. Just as much as pets and kids will tax a flooring, using a room such as a gym where you’ll be doing sprints, dragging equipment around, and dropping medicine balls. You might even consider a more durable flooring in a band room. You can easily invest in a flooring material with superior wear resistance, but be sure to look for this on the label, as some flooring will look pretty durable even if it isn’t. While site-finished hardwood is pretty common, if you’re looking for something more durable, you’ll want to pursue prefinished hardwood instead.
