There are many variables to consider when picking out the best flooring for your lifestyle. Make sure to weigh your options before selecting your flooring because they all have their pros and cons based on your budget, high or low traffic, and who lives in your home.
1. Environmentally Friendly
Are you looking to reduce your environmental impact? There are plenty of eco-friendly flooring options at your home. Bamboo flooring is safe, eco-friendly and non-toxic. Bamboo flooring is also water-resistant, adds real estate value and may be within your budget! When shopping for environmentally friendly options for a new hardwood floor, make sure to check and see if it is from renewable sources or is sustainably harvested.
2. Pet Friendly
The most important aspect to consider when choosing the right flooring as a pet owner, is finding a floor that is stain resistant. Wood flooring and carpet can be permanently damaged and scratched up by a cat or dog. Typically, the best pet friendly option is ceramic tile. This stain resistant option is great because it is easy to clean up after a pet accident.
3. Child Friendly
Depending on the ages of your children, carpet may or may not be a good option for your home. Younger children are more prone to messes and accidents. Carpets are a cheaper option than hardwood flooring and can protect young children because it is not slippery and has soft material and cushion. Vinyl flooring or tile options may be a better fit for older children involved in activities because they are easy to clean.
4. Allergy Friendly
If you or a loved one has allergies, carpet may not be the best option for your home. Carpets can trap dust particles, pet hair and mold which can trigger allergy symptoms. Hardwood or tile flooring may be the better option because it is easier to maintain and deep clean to keep harmful irritants out of your home.
