Choosing Flooring for Your Bonita Springs Remodeling Project
What type of flooring do you want for your Bonita Springs remodeling project?
Sometimes, deciding this can be easier said than done. With so many choices out there, it’s not the easiest thing to decide. Even if you know you want hardwoods, for example, what kind of wood are you going to pick? And what kind of construction method are you going to choose?
To help you pick out your flooring, you’ll need to take into account a few factors:
- Maintenance: How often will you have to clean this floor? Kitchen floors, for example, need to be able to be cleaned regularly thanks to spills and moisture.
- Traffic: How much traffic will you get in a particular area? Carpet wears quickly in high-traffic areas, while hardwoods don’t.
- Aesthetics: Some types of flooring go better with certain design schemes. Carpet may be out of place for your teak-and-marble bathroom, for example. Also, light hardwood may not be the best look for an ultra-modern home.
- Cost: How much are you willing to spend? Solid hardwoods tend to cost more than engineered hardwood, which is more expensive than laminate. Laying expensive tile may be more expensive than either hardwood or carpet.
Each type of flooring has its advantages. For example, hardwood is more durable and resilient than carpet (although not as durable as stone tile). Carpet is warmer and softer, but can look outdated in the wrong home. Tile is great for kitchens and bathrooms, but may be out of place elsewhere in the home.
Take into consideration the above factors and pay close attention to the overall design aesthetic for each section of your home. That will help you select flooring for your Bonita Springs remodeling project that will look great and fit your needs.
