How To Decide What Category of Flooring To Put In Your Winnetka House
Are you going to be searching for new flooring in the near future?
Think about which area of your Winnetka home it will be laid down in. Will it be basement flooring, bathroom flooring, backsplash tile, stair treads, bedroom flooring or flooring for a yoga studio? Will it be installed in a nursery or another location where ADA compliant flooring or special care may be required?
What Sort Of Subfloor Is Currently Installed?
Is it a gypcrete or cement subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, sterling OSB, or Plywood? Will you be installing over existing slate flooring, click lock flooring or rubber tile?
Identify What Are Your Major Goals For The Flooring
If your home is in Winnetka ask these questions…
Does the flooring need to be ecofriendly floor covering? 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 right for damp areas like roofing slate or slate tile? Does it need to be flooring that resembles wood such as reclaimed wood floors, bamboo flooring, laminate floors, hardwood floors, or ceramic tile that resembles wood?
Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example
Let’s consider floor covering for a Winnetka basement with a concrete slab. If your goals are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for children and occasional visitors. Then, our best choice is Eco-friendly Flooring’s cork floating floor planks. This non-toxic cork flooring offers easy cork installation with its click lock flooring tongue and groove system. No glue or nails are needed to assemble 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 Winnetka Home?
One extra key feature of cork flooring that many Winnetka homewners may overlook—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and pet fur will not stick to the floor. Cork floor maintenance is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The home’s indoor air quality will improve dramatically 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 hidden with cork’s texture. Small depressions will pop back out over time. This is very different from laminate flooring, hardwood flooring or discount cork floor covering, where the indentations would likely be more permanent.
Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which Winnetka people will enter making a flooring decision. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is installed, 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.
