How To Choose What Type of Flooring To Put In Your New York County Place

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

Think about which area of your New York County residence it will be installed. 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 infant’s room or another location where Americans with Disabilities Act compliant floor covering or special care may be required?

What Sort Of Subfloor Is In Place?

Is it a gypcrete or concrete subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, Oriented Strand Board (OSB), or Plywood? Will you be installing over existing linoleum flooring, bamboo flooring or rubber tile?

Decide What Are Your Main Concerns For The Floor Covering

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


Does the floor covering 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 a cork flooring sale item? 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 suitable for damp areas like roofing slate or slate tile? Does it need to be something that resembles wood such as reclaimed wood floors, bamboo flooring, laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, or ceramic tile that looks like wood?

Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example

Let’s consider floor covering for a New York County basement with a cement 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 flooring offers simple 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 New York County House?

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


One additional key feature of cork flooring that many New York County  homewners may overlook—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and pet hair will not cling to the floor. Cork floor upkeep is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The house’s indoor air quality will improve considerably 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 masked with cork’s texture. Small indentations will pop up over time. This is very different from laminate floor covering, hardwood floor covering or discount cork flooring, where the indentations would likely be more permanent.


Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which New York County  homeowners will enter making a floor covering selection. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is going, 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 residence.
