Hardwood flooring is the best flooring for most indoor rooms of a house with bathrooms, laundry rooms and maybe kitchens being the exception. You need to avoid installing hardwood flooring in these rooms because hardwood flooring isn’t resistant to water which has the ability to destroy it and litter it with mould. Hardwood flooring will not only make a home appear more classy, but can also increase resale value. For best results install hardwood flooring created by the best brands. Some popular brands are Bruce Hardwood, Armstrong Hardwood and Bella Cera.
If you plan to recommend hardwood flooring for your customer’s homes, prepare to inform them on the amount of maintenance it requires.
If your customers are looking for an easy maintenance option resilient flooring would be perfect. As their name suggests, they are resilient, versatile and are also economical. You can even install them in high moisture areas like the bathroom and laundry room. They can also come in a variety of styles, colours and textures. For places like bathrooms you could use resilient flooring with a texture that offers a grip, even when it is wet. For the other rooms of the house you could choose a design that provides a look that is more pleasing to the eyes. Armstrong and Artisek are two popular brands.
Laminate flooring is another affordable option that can be used in most rooms as they can look like wood, tile and ceramic flooring. They are very easy to maintain and install. Some great brands offering laminate flooring are Armstrong, Bruce and Bella Cera.
LVT is another affordable and easy to maintain flooring type that is very similar to resilient flooring. Armstrong and Artisek are two popular LVT flooring brands.
