The flooring of your home or office is one of the most important aspects. When making a selection for your home, consider the reasons for installing it.
Prior to World War II, lino was only available in muted, earthy tones. Today, linoleum can be purchased in a wide variety of patterns and colours. It is biodegradable and is generally made from materials such as recycled wood flour, cork dust and limestone. Lino is a great option if you’re interested in “green” building materials. Unlike vinyl flooring, lino is easy to repair should a dropped knife cause a nick. Simply make a mixture of wood glue and fine scrapings of a leftover piece of the original floor and fill in the gash. Prices for linol are approximately the same as those for vinyl.
Vinyl flooring and linoleum are often used interchangeably, but they are not the same thing. Vinyl flooring is man-made and is easy to clean. This type of flooring is available in a wide variety of looks including stone, ceramic, wood and slate. It is a popular option for those who want a waterproof surface.
Ceramic tile is the best option for floors that receive a heavy amount of traffic, as it is virtually indestructible. However, ceramic tile tends to crack if heavy objects are dropped upon it. It can also be hard on the knees if you plan to stand on it for long periods of time. Ceramic tile is often found in bathrooms and kitchens.
Granite tile is a less-common option for a floor than is ceramic, but it is no less useful. Within the granite matrix are flecks of varying shades, giving the tile a stunning appearance of depth and richness. It is durable and scratch- and stain-resistant for many years of trouble-free service.
Marble tiling has an ethereal beauty all its own and is among the most durable of all flooring options. If properly cleaned and maintained, marble tiling will last you for a lifetime. Because it is prone to staining, you may not want to use it in high-traffic areas of your home.
Wood floors hold a timeless appeal for the homeowner, evoking images of the days when wood floors were the norm. Today, wood floors are available in a wide variety of stunning patterns from the richly coloured oak to the toast-coloured bamboo.
Hardwood floors are suitable options for those who suffer from allergies. Unlike carpet, hardwood flooring will not hold onto dust, dirt or pet dander, thereby giving you the benefit of a fresh living space every time you run the Hoover. Hardwood flooring works best if used in areas not prone to dampness such as bedrooms, living rooms, studies and dens.
