Beautiful flooring can change the look of the whole house. It can light up a space and make a room look bigger. Nowadays there are so many different ways you can dress up your floor to make your home look fabulous. We will be looking at a few flooring choices in this article so that you can get an idea of how to remodel your home from the bottom up.

Smooth tile finish

Tile is quite popular among many home owners because of its convenience. It is so easy to clean it and it will last for a long time. It holds up very well against moisture and stains. You can use it in any setting whether it’s a bright spotless kitchen or a quietly understated bedroom. There are many sizes, colours and textures. There is so much variation that you can get a tile that resembles a wood floor, granite, stone etc. It is also a very cost effective option. 

Elegant wood flooring

Wood flooring immediately gives a very austere look to a room. It is natural and fresh creating a very stylish interior for your home. Wood is also quite easy to clean and there is no need to vacuum. But sometimes the wood panels may loosen making for a squeaky floor. There are many variations of wood floorings from the colour, type of wood and also the method used for manufacturing. There are many eco-friendly options as well such as timber flooring Melbourne that is cheaper to install and they are more durable than your typical hardwood floors.

Soft materials

Carpet flooring is ideal for houses in cold climates. It is comfortable on your feet as well. There are many carpet colours, designs, and materials such as polyester, wool, and nylon. Carpets have to be vacuumed frequently and to families with pets and children it may become a bit of a hassle. It’s advised to go for a stain- treated carpet that is highly durable. You can also use smaller carpets or rugs on hardwood floors to prevent the generation of excess sound.

Concrete floors

Concrete floors have also become popular especially among architects. A cut cement floor or a concrete tile floor can give a space a sense of simplicity. Pair this with some elegant furniture and you will be able to create a stylish and tasteful interior. There are many concrete colours and also finishes such as polished, rough and subtle textures. This type of flooring is ideal for places of high wear and tear, given its high durability.

Versatile vinyl

Vinyl even though it is extremely inexpensive can have a large range of designs. It can give the effect of a wood floor, tile or stone with its variation in colour and texture. It is very easy to maintain and can be quite durable.
