The experts at Floor Coverings International Brandywine Valley know that every room needs flooring that serves a unique purpose. Below, we’ve compiled our favorite flooring option for each major room in your home: the kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom!
Kitchen: Luxury Vinyl Planks
We love the appearance of hardwood in the kitchen, but we don’t love the potential water damage. A flooded sink could ruin beautiful hardwood floors overnight, and frequent spills may damage hardwood over time. That’s why we recommend luxury vinyl plank flooring. Extremely waterproof, luxury vinyl planks allow you to achieve the beauty of hardwood in damp and humid areas. Luxury vinyl planks mimic hardwood with photorealistic accuracy. The durable wear-layer of luxury vinyl can also be textured to further match the beauty of hardwood floors. Luxury vinyl plank flooring is also more comfortable than hardwood, being slightly softer and warmer underfoot.
Living Room: Hardwood
Your living room is the perfect place to install stunning hardwood floors. The natural beauty of hardwood provides unparalleled elegance and beauty, making it an ideal option for the primary gathering place in your home. Combine hardwood floors with stylish area rugs to give your living room an extra boost of comfort and visual appeal. Area rugs can also be used to protect hardwood floors from damage caused by frequent foot traffic and heavy furniture.
Cork flooring combines the comfort of carpet with the visual appeal of hardwood, creating a stunning and unique flooring solution. The softer texture of cork will compress underfoot, then spring back up once pressure is removed. This unique texture creates a flooring that’s comfortable, retains heat, and dampens noise. Cork is less durable than hardwood, which makes it better-suited for low-traffic areas such as the bedroom. Cork is also eco-friendly. This distinct flooring is made from oak tree bark, and doesn’t require the full tree to be cut down.
Bathroom: Porcelain or Ceramic Tile
Porcelain or ceramic tile is the ideal flooring choice for your bathroom. Completely waterproof, resistant to mold and mildew, durable, and low-maintenance, porcelain and ceramic tile can be used to create a stylish bathroom that will last a lifetime. If cold tile under your feet bothers you, consider installing radiant heating underneath.
