What kind of flooring is best for my home?
If you have energetic pets and a busy young family the best flooring for your home may be something like a hybrid floating floor which offers waterproof properties for those inevitable accidents, and a high degree of scratch and stain resistance.
Take the furry menagerie out of the equation and high quality, durable and resilient laminate or vinyl flooring are fabulous options for homes with young families, providing the look of real timber for a fraction of the price.
If yours is a home which receives a lot of direct sunlight, solution dyed nylon carpets offer fantastic fade resistance, and if negating the cold Tasmanian climate is important to you, choose pure wool carpets for the best insulation.
Modern synthetic carpets are manufactured with excellent stain, fade, crush and soil resistance while being as soft as pure wool, so they are fantastic options for many homes. In rural or beachfront properties carpets may not be as easy to keep clean as floating floors or timber flooring, but the gloss finish applied to real timber flooring can diminish and require re-application, particularly in the presence of sand.
That said, robust and resilient timber flooring is highly durable and provides a luxe look to many homes, albeit not always affordable to every budget.
With so many fabulous, high quality products to choose from, it would pay to seek expert advice from the team at your local Carpet Court store. They have years of experience and extensive product knowledge, so they really are the best people to consult.
What is the most durable flooring?
Most types of flooring are durable in the right environment. Authentic Australian or European timber flooring is a high quality option with immense durability, while pure wool and certain synthetic carpets are also highly durable in the right conditions.
Of course any type of hard flooring such as engineered timber, laminate, hybrid and vinyl flooring will offer excellent durability but not every type of flooring has surfaces designed to withstand a high degree of traffic such as high heels, pet claws, frequently moved furniture and more.
Commercial vinyl and carpet floor tiles carry a high degree of durability and are designed to withstand the heavy foot traffic that occurs in commercial environments.
Select the type of floor which best fits with your lifestyle and home or business environment, and you will find it provides you with many years of practical functionality and visible beauty.
How much does it cost to change the flooring in Tasmania?
