How To Choose What Style of Flooring To Install In Your Denver Residence
Are you going to be searching for new floor covering in the upcoming months?
Think about which area of your Denver home it will be put in. Will it be basement flooring, kitchen flooring, backsplash tile, on stairs, bedroom flooring or flooring for a yoga studio? Will it be installed in a baby’s room or another location where Americans with Disabilities Act compliant flooring or particular attention may be required?
What Type Of Subfloor Is Currently Installed?
Is it a gypcrete or concrete subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, Oriented Strand Board (OSB), or Plywood? Will you be putting it over existing slate flooring, engineered hardwood flooring or laminate flooring?
Identify What Are Your Major Goals For The Floor Covering
If your place is in Denver ask these questions…
Does the flooring need to be ecofriendly flooring? Does it need to be a warm floor, a non-toxic, non-outgassing floor? Does it need to be builder direct or discount cork flooring? Does it need to be a quiet floor like rubber tile, cork flooring including cork underlayment, or engineered wood flooring with cork underlayment? Does it need to be appropriate for wet areas like roofing slate or rubber tile? Does it need to be flooring that looks like wood such as reclaimed wood flooring, bamboo floors, laminate floors, hardwood floors, or ceramic tile that looks like wood?
Let’s Take A Flooring Example
Let’s consider flooring for a Denver basement with a concrete slab. If your goals are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for children and occasional guests. Then, our top pick is Eco-friendly Flooring’s cork floating floor planks. This non-toxic cork floor covering offers easy cork installation with its click lock flooring tongue and groove system. No glue or nails are required to install the planks. These warm floors become even more insulating once you add Eco-Friendly Flooring’s cork underlayment to the mix.
Why Choose a Cork Floor for your Denver Home?
One additional key feature of cork flooring that many Denver homewners may overlook—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and pet hair will not cling to the floor. Cork floor upkeep is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The home’s indoor air quality will improve considerably once cork flooring has been laid down in.
Cork floor covering is also very forgiving. This means that pet traffic and kid traffic on the cork can be masked with cork’s texture. Little dents will pop back out over time. This is very different from laminate flooring, hardwood floor covering or discount cork flooring, where the indentations would likely be more permanent.
Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which Denver homeowners will enter making a flooring selection. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is put in, the condition of the subfloor, and top priorities for the floor covering, you will be able to narrow it down to the best fit for your house.
