Potentially the most popular type of flooring with improvement projects, carpets add a nice plush feel to those who walk on it. Coming in many varieties such as nylon, polyester, berber and wool, you will find that there are many pattens and textures to choose from. Another plus to carpet is the price, as some carpets can be purchased wall-to-wall at great prices, especially because every carpet store in your town seems to always be having a blowout sale.

Resilient Flooring

Resilient Flooring consists of rubber, vinyl, and linoleum flooring. Known as flooring to be the best for your dollar, this is a flooring for those who are looking for value. This type of flooring has many patterns and colors. In fact, some patterns look so real, many can’t even tell the difference when standing far away. This type of flooring is generally found in bathrooms, kitchens and basements. It is a good option for rooms that get a lot of hard use. It is called resilient for a reason as it is durable and can survive spills and scuffs for years.

Stone Flooring

Providing your rooms with a natural look, stone flooring can offer that luxury look and feel that you have dreamed about. Available in many forms such as marble and granite, this flooring can also come in limitless colors. Stone flooring is normally a more expensive option, but if you look hard enough their are deals to be found. Also a floor is something you will use day in and out for years so paying for a stone you love with make you happy with your choice and provide you with excellent durability.


Often found in kitchens and bathrooms, tile is available as a ceramic, glass, porcelain or mosaic type. Generally thicker and very durable, tile can come in many shapes and forms. No matter what your budget is, there’s a rather good chance you will find something to suit your room’s overall theme and colors. Plus, tile is a popular do-it-yourself material. Learning how to lay tile yourself will save you money and encourage you to add new tile to the rest of your home.

Wood Flooring

From pine to oak, hardwood flooring will add an elegant flavor to your room. Known to be some of the most durable types of flooring on the market, this is ideal for those who have a higher budget. Commonly found in all rooms of the house, wood flooring can come in a variety of forms such as laminate, veneered and planked.

With so many types of flooring available, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons. Take a look at your budget, your room’s overall theme and ultimate goal. By doing your homework, you’re bound to find flooring that impresses anyone who walks into the room.
