Choosing the perfect flooring for your home can seem like a daunting task, and you might be tempted to skimp on materials along the way, but the good news is you don’t have to. There are plenty of options to choose from so that you’ll have an outstanding floor covering, especially with planning and attention to detail.
Flooring is an important decision
Floor shopping isn't something you want to do every day, so it's best to find material that will serve you well for years to come. But you also want materials that cater to your requirements as well.
The most extended lifespans belong to hardwood flooring and porcelain tile, averaging 100 and 50 years, respectively. These materials are durable, offer stunning visuals, and meet a wide variety of needs, no matter which rooms need flooring.
However, you might be best served by a shorter lifespan with materials like laminate and luxury vinyl. Although not as long as hardwood and tile, you’ll find these floors offer about 20 to 30 years, based on the options you choose.
Even shorter lifespans can be helpful, especially if you know in advance, you’ll be changing things in 10 to 20 years. If that’s your situation, be sure to consider options like sheet vinyl or a more affordable laminate.
