How To Decide What Type of Flooring To Put In Your Kings County House

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

Consider which area of your Kings County residence it will be laid down in. Will it be basement flooring, bathroom flooring, backsplash tile, on stairs, bedroom flooring or flooring for a yoga studio? Will it be installed in a nursery or another location where ADA compliant floor covering or special attention may be required?

What Sort Of Subfloor Is In Place?

Is it a gypcrete or cement subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, sterling board, or Plywood? Will you be installing over existing linoleum flooring, bamboo flooring or asbestos tile?

Decide What Are Your Top Priorities For The Flooring

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


Does the floor covering 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 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 right for wet areas like roofing slate or travertine tile? Does it need to be flooring that resembles wood such as reclaimed wood flooring, bamboo flooring, laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, or ceramic tile that looks like wood?

Let’s Take A Flooring Example

Let’s consider flooring for a Kings County downstairs rec room with a concrete slab. If your goals are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for kids and occasional guests. Then, our top choice is Eco-friendly Flooring’s cork floating floor planks. This non-toxic cork floor covering offers simple cork installation with its click lock flooring tongue and groove system. No glue or nails are required 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 Kings County House?

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


One extra key feature of cork floor covering that many Kings County  homewners may dismiss—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 dramatically once cork flooring has been put in.


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


Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which Kings County  people will enter making a flooring decision. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is put in, the condition of the subfloor, and top priorities for the flooring, you will be able to narrow it down to the best fit for your place.
