Residential Flooring Choices


Summary: Choosing residential flooring isn’t that hard, it’s a matter of choice and a good sense of style.

With the number of choices available, it would be as you would expect daunting. Residential flooring choices are just too many, stone flooring, brick flooring, hardwood, or even the cool and green natural cork tile flooring. One small gaffe and your going to live with that choice for the rest of your damned life, err… at least until you can get hold of another budget for remodeling.

Choosing residential flooring isn’t that hard. It’s a matter of choice plus a good sense of style, plus keeping in mind the properties you want to have or inherently have. Residential flooring has the choices of: carpet, wood, stone, and brick. Others fall into any category stated. Here are some suggested pointers for residential flooring.

Ecological Enthusiast

Are you a practitioner of Zen? Are a Tai Chi material? Then having an environmental themed residential flooring can bring you more good. I even find those Japanese homes very neat, very relaxing. Speaking of which, why not remodel it the Ecological Enthusiast’s way. Hardwood residential flooring is a way to start. These types of residential floorings are prized since they afford the easiest cleaning, but alert maintaining that is still easy. The surface of hardwood are non porous and they also don’t attract dirt. Grit and dust just skim over the surface, making vacuuming and cleaning uncomplicated. Besides, hardwoods are among the most beautiful floors.

Another fine choice is the natural cork floor. They offer plenty of benefits. Cork are water resistant. Even if placed in areas prone to much condensation and wet, they still make excellent floors; a good choice for bathrooms and wash area. Corks also have the inherent buoyancy, making it an outstanding material to cushion falls and tenderfoots. Putting it in nurseries and playrooms can really use the benefit of cork. And they are also surprisingly hypoallergenic, another reason why they are excellent for children’s room flooring.

Architectural Revival

Manors and villas are eternally enchanting. They speak of permanence, of being there for some time, witnessing the passage. That’s what brick flooring gives. Romanesque, Baroque, Victorian, and Gregorian, homes with architectural revival design complement well on brick residential flooring, another material that exudes timelessness. In fact the more aged the brick gets, the expensive they become. Bricks salvaged from old structures and then resold are quite lucrative businesses. Suffice to say, aged bricks are worth more than new ones.

Brick residential floorings are frequent in places on Europe. Especially on wine and country estates, where well endowed private villas abound, you can see especially timeless homes.
