How To Select What Kind of Flooring To Install In Your DuPage County House

Are you going to be looking for new floor covering in the upcoming months?

Think about which area of your DuPage County residence it will be put in. Will it be basement flooring, kitchen flooring, backsplash tile, on stairs, living room flooring or workout room flooring? Will it be installed in a infant’s room or another location where Americans with Disabilities Act compliant floor covering or particular attention may be required?

What Kind Of Subfloor Is Currently Installed?

Is it a gypcrete or cement subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, sterling board, or Plywood? Will you be putting it over existing slate flooring, click lock flooring or rubber tile?

Decide What Are Your Major Goals For The Floor Covering

New, Mache Latte is an elephant Gray colored, matte finished cork. If your home is in DuPage County ask these questions…


Does the flooring need to be sustainable floor covering? Does it need to be a warm floor, a non-toxic, non-outgassing floor? Does it need to be builder direct or a cork flooring sale item? 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 wet areas like roofing slate or rubber tile? Does it need to be something that looks like wood such as reclaimed wood floors, bamboo floors, laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, or ceramic tile that resembles wood?

Let’s Take A Flooring Example

Let’s consider flooring for a DuPage County basement with a concrete slab. If your priorities are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for children and occasional guests. 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 put together 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 DuPage County Residence?

Cork flooring is warmer than laminate flooring, hardwood floor covering and bamboo flooring, as well as ceramic tiles and slate flooring.


One additional key feature of cork floor covering that many DuPage County  homewners may overlook—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and pet hair will not stick to the floor. Cork floor upkeep is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The house’s indoor air quality will improve significantly once cork flooring has been put in.


Cork is quiet and warm… Cork floor covering is also very forgiving. This means that animal traffic and kid traffic on the cork can be masked with cork’s texture. Small indentations will pop back out over time. This is very different from laminate flooring, hardwood flooring or discount cork floor covering, where the dents would likely be more permanent.


Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which DuPage County  people 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 home.
