Creative Flooring Options Carpet, Ceramic Tile, and Carpet
Are you in the process of renovating your home? If so, you’re probably in the process of exploring several options for each room’s flooring. While some people may choose hardwood floors for their dining room, living room, and bedrooms, others prefer to have carpeting. Ceramic tile continues to be a popular choice in bathrooms, kitchens, entryways, and sun rooms.
A recent Houzz flooring survey showed that 47% of homeowners prefer to have hardwood installed throughout their home. Approximately 34% of these participants’ homes already had hardwood flooring. Since there are different hardwood floor types, patterns, and textures, there are quite a few design options available.
If you’re renovating in order to sell your house, you may be interested to know that many prospective home buyers prefer hardwood floors. The National Association of Realtors reported that over half, or 54%, of these prospective buyers are actually willing to pay more for hardwood floors.
Tile, according to the Houzz survey covered 23% of the floors within the participants’ homes. The survey also reported that 90% of the participating homeowners claimed to prefer tile or hardwood in their kitchens. Tile comes in a variety of patterns, textures, and colors that can blend in with a room’s decor, create a bold contrast or an element of surprise.
Many people continue to prefer carpet in their bedrooms, particularly in the master bedroom. The Houzz survey showed that 38% of the participants were planning to have carpet installed in their master bedrooms. Since there are so many carpet designs, patterns, and colors available, this choice of floor covering can inspire quite a few decorating ideas as well.
In addition to providing comfort, you may be interested to know that there are other benefits of carpet installation. When you choose to have carpeted, rather than hardwood floors, you may also be able to reduce allergens in your master bedroom and throughout your home.
A recent Swedish study compared the difference between carpeted and uncarpeted floors. The results showed that when 70% of homeowners weren’t using as much carpeting, 30% experienced more allergic reactions. While some people are more susceptible than others to interior as well as exterior allergens, this is still something to think about when considering the benefits of carpet installation.
Since you want your home’s interiors to resonate with your lifestyle, having the right type of high-quality flooring is usually at the top of the list. While you’re considering the best type of flooring to have in each room of your home, you may want to consult with an interior designer as well as a professional carpet and flooring installation company.
