Flooring Design and Your Room Remodel

If you are looking to update your flooring along with your room remodel, it is important to first have an idea of what type of flooring replacements would be suitable for your home and where you intend to put them. Not all types of flooring are suitable for every room in your hoame or for every home for that matter. It can depend upon usage and climate factors. Therefore, before getting your heart set on a particular type of flooring, you should understand what types of flooring would be best for your home.

Many people love the idea of upgrading their floors to hardwood flooring and it is an excellent investment in the home because of its great looks and durability. The trade-off between the expense of hardwood and other types of flooring is that this type of flooring can be refinished repeatedly and if cared for properly, could last up to 100 years. Other types, such as laminate or linoleum may only have a lifespan between 10 to 20 years, and if damaged, they will need to be replaced because they cannot be refinished.

The biggest enemy to hardwood flooring is humidity/moisture and for this reason, it is not recommended for rooms where exposure to moisture is a given or even recommended for basements. Moisture can cause warping and swelling of the floorboards, which in some cases cannot be repaired. For these areas, laminate, linoleum or tile flooring replacements are usually more suitable because they stand up to moisture better than hardwood. Today's laminate floors offer a variety of looks, with many mimicking the look of hardwood. This is without the worry that hardwood floors may bring because of its construction. It helps resist moisture and responds more favorably to changes in humidity within your home.

So, before you begin your search for flooring replacements with your room remodel professional, take the time to discover what types are suitable for you. This will help save time, money and disappointment and ensure satisfaction with your new flooring.
