How To Decide What Category of Flooring To Put In Your Red Hook Residence

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

Consider which area of your Red Hook home it will be installed. Will it be basement flooring, bathroom flooring, backsplash tile, on stairs, bedroom flooring or workout room flooring? 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 Currently Installed?

Is it a gypcrete or cement subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, Oriented Strand Board (OSB), or Plywood? Will you be laying it over existing ceramic tiles, engineered hardwood flooring or rubber tile?

Identify What Are Your Major Goals For The Flooring

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


Does the flooring need to be eco-friendly 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 floor? 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 looks like wood such as reclaimed wood flooring, bamboo floors, laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, or ceramic tile that resembles wood?

Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example

Let’s consider floor covering for a Red Hook downstairs rec room with a concrete slab. If your priorities are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for children and occasional family. 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 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 Red Hook Home?

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


One additional key feature of cork floor covering that many Red Hook  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 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 children traffic on the cork can be masked with cork’s texture. Little depressions will pop up over time. This is very different from laminate floor covering, hardwood floor covering or discount cork floor covering, where the indentations would likely be more permanent.


Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which Red Hook  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 home.
