How To Choose What Kind of Flooring To Install In Your Queens County Place

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

Consider which area of your Queens County residence it will be laid down in. Will it be basement flooring, kitchen flooring, backsplash tile, stair treads, bedroom flooring or flooring for a yoga studio? Will it be installed in a baby’s room or another location where Americans with Disabilities Act compliant floor covering or special 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 laying it over existing ceramic tiles, 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 place is in Queens County ask these questions…


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

Let’s Take A Floor Covering Example

Let’s consider flooring for a Queens County downstairs rec room with a cement slab. If your priorities are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for kids and occasional visitors. Then, our top pick is Eco-friendly Flooring’s cork floating floor planks. This non-toxic cork floor covering 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 Queens County House?

Cork floor covering 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 Queens County  homewners may dismiss—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and pet hair will not stick to the floor. Cork floor maintenance is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The home’s indoor air quality will improve dramatically once cork flooring has been installed.


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. Little dents will pop back out over time. This is very different from laminate flooring, 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 Queens County  homeowners will enter making a flooring selection. 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 place.
