How To Choose What Category of Flooring To Put In Your Highland Residence
Are you going to be looking for new floor covering in the upcoming months?
Think about which area of your Highland home 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 nursery or another location where ADA compliant flooring 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, sterling OSB, or Plywood? Will you be laying it over existing linoleum flooring, click lock flooring or asbestos tile?
Decide What Are Your Top Priorities For The Flooring
If your place is in Highland ask these questions…
Does the flooring need to be green 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 flooring 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 flooring, bamboo floors, laminate floors, hardwood flooring, or ceramic tile that resembles wood?
Let’s Take A Flooring Example
Let’s consider floor covering for a Highland basement with a cement slab. If your priorities are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for kids and occasional family. Then, our top selection 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 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 Highland Residence?
One additional key feature of cork flooring that many Highland 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 home’s indoor air quality will improve considerably once cork flooring has been laid down in.
Cork floor covering is also very forgiving. This means that animal traffic and children traffic on the cork can be hidden 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 floor covering, where the dents would likely be more permanent.
Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which Highland couples will enter making a floor covering decision. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is going, 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.
