The Best Type of Flooring for Your Home’s Unique Rooms

Posted on September 15th, 2014 by

Your flooring is one of the hardest working parts of your house, so you want to make sure you get the right type for each of your rooms. While some homeowners prefer installing one type of material through the entire home for consistency, picking different flooring materials based on a room’s purpose can promote the functionality of the room. The Carrollton flooring experts offer a few tips which floors to install in the various “specialty” rooms of your home:

  • Nursery – For a nursery, you need something that is durable and easy to clean, but is also comfortable for crawling on. Most parents prefer installing carpet in a nursery which is soft under a newborn’s feet and can give the small room a warm and inviting feel. If you’re concerned about stains or spills in this area of the home, you may also want to consider carpet tiles. Carpet tiles can easily be lifted for cleaning and single tiles can be removed without having to replace the entire carpet.
  • Workout Room – A home gym needs to have flooring that is sturdy and can be easily cleaned, making rubber flooring a great choice. Rubber helps cushion your joints from the shock of exercising, is affordable, and is easy to install and maintain. With the extra cushioning that rubber provides, you can exercise without using a mat and your exercise equipment won’t move around and damage the surface.
  • Office – Hardwood floors are a great option for offices because they offer a classic feel that matches with most existing types of décor. However, some homeowners find that because the floor tends to wear down where the chair is, a more durable flooring material such as concrete is ideal. These floors offer a modern aesthetic and are known to last for years. For a more polished and sophisticated look, you can paint your concrete floors so that it fits in with the décor of the rest of the home.
  • Mudroom – The flooring in a mudroom needs to be durable, moisture-resistant, and easy to clean because it is a high traffic area from the outdoors. Tile is a good option for mudrooms as it is durable, easy to clean, moisture resistant, and nonporous. From travertine floor tiles to more affordable options such as porcelain or ceramic flooring, your options are truly endless.
