You walk on it all the time. Your kids run around on it, and your dog may even use it for sleeping.  But, does your floor need some sprucing up?

Even though the primary purpose of flooring is functionality, there’s no reason you can’t have something elegant that adds beauty to your home.  If you plan to upgrade the look of your floors, it all starts with choosing the right materials. Then, go over the design to determine if you want something patterned in the kitchen or if a simple plain floor will do.  Will the brick pattern look great in your outdoor dining space or would wooden panels creates a more beautiful outcome?

To help you choose which kind of floor you can picture your house having for the long term, here are some ideas:

  • Hardwood floors – This type of flooring is considered to be a classic and one of the most elegant options. Hardwood floors offer timeless beauty and grace and complement almost all interior designs. However, a downside to hardwood flooring is its vulnerability to water and scratches. However, proper care of your wood flooring and sealing it with good finished (such as the Bona line offered by Superior Hardwoods & Millwork) will keep your flooring in good condition and free of wear and tear.
  • Concrete – It’s strong and classic look that is great for huge houses. A potential downside is that concrete can be cold and hard, so you may want to think twice if you have kids.
  • Vinyl – This is the most affordable type of flooring material you can use for your home. However, take note that vinyl tiles may not be as durable and long lasting as other types of flooring material. Nevertheless, they are easier to install than other materials if you don’t have a lot of time to spend on replacing your floors.
  • Brick floors – If you want a non-slip material, bricks are a great option. Although bricks are usually best suited for the outdoors, you can also use them in select areas of the house like the mudroom. Bricks are also easy to install and a less costly alternative to other types of flooring materials.
  • Carpet – If you want a soft surface for your kids to play on, wall to wall carpeting is the most practical choice. Carpets are durable, and you can even find stain-resistant options. Just keep in mind that it requires very regular cleaning because dirt and dust easily accumulate.
