How To Select What Style of Flooring To Install In Your Baltimore County Residence

Are you going to be searching for new flooring in the near future?

Think about which area of your Baltimore County house it will be laid down in. Will it be basement flooring, kitchen flooring, backsplash tile, on stairs, bedroom flooring or workout room flooring? 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 Sort Of Subfloor Is Being Used?

Is it a gypcrete or concrete subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, sterling OSB, or Plywood? Will you be putting it over existing linoleum flooring, click lock flooring or asbestos tile?

Decide What Are Your Top Priorities For The Flooring

Does the floor covering need to be ecologically friendly 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 floor covering with cork underlayment? Does it need to be appropriate for wet areas like roofing slate or rubber tile? Does it need to be something that resembles wood such as reclaimed wood floors, bamboo floors, laminate flooring, hardwood floors, or ceramic tile that resembles wood?

Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example

Let’s consider flooring for a Baltimore County downstairs rec room with a cement slab. If your priorities are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for children and occasional friends. Then, our best selection 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 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 Baltimore County Home?

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


One added key feature of cork flooring that many Baltimore County  homewners may overlook—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and animal 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 significantly once cork flooring has been installed.


Cork is quiet and warm… Cork flooring 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 floor covering, 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 Baltimore County  people will enter making a floor covering decision. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is laid down, 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.
