Choosing the flooring for your home, whether you’re newly constructing it or renovating it, is a big decision. At Rolling Stone Granite Tennessee, we understand that there are a lot of different things you’ll need to consider, so below, we’ve outlined the main things you’ll want to keep in mind as you review your flooring options.
- Lifestyle: Do you currently have children or pets, or are you planning to have them in the future? Will certain areas of your home see more foot traffic than others? Will some spaces need to be more water and moisture-proof than others? Having a good idea of how you’ll use each area in your home will help you decide between flooring options and choose the ones that will best suit your unique lifestyle.
- Functionality: Although looks are important, you also need to consider the functionality of your flooring. While some areas of your home, such as the entryways, kitchen, hallways, and bathrooms, will likely need to prioritize durability, you’ll want to consider your comfort more for rooms like the bedrooms, office, or living room.
- Maintenance: The level of maintenance and cleaning required for different flooring options varies dramatically, so consider what you’re willing to commit to before making any decisions. Carpet needs regular vacuuming and occasional deep cleaning, whereas sweeping and occasional mopping are generally all that’s required to keep options like vinyl and tile looking their best.
- Noise: It may seem strange at first, but you’ll want to consider how each flooring option will carry sound before making any decisions. Carpet and some vinyl options provide cushioning and sound absorption, whereas tile or hardwood may need rugs or other sound-dampening extras to keep sound from carrying throughout the house.
