Our experts at Floor Coverings International® of take pride in helping homeowners in Plano and the surrounding areas find flooring that perfectly fits their needs. For homes with busy families, that means finding flooring that is durable, easy to maintain and fits both the homeowner’s budget and style. With these necessities in mind, here are 3 types of flooring that are great options for busy Plano homes:
There are several reasons why laminate works well in busy homes. As one of the most affordable flooring options available, laminate flooring is great for families that are trying to put away money for college or are otherwise concerned with savings. Its wear layer is durable enough to resist the spills and scratches that are bound to happen in homes with small children. And, it also looks fabulous! Laminate uses a photo-realistic layer to replicate the look of natural wood and stone with surprising authenticity. So, if you want the elegant look of tile but don’t want to spend any of your limited time cleaning grout, laminate might be a good choice for your home.
Like laminate, luxury vinyl is easy to maintain, resilient enough to last for years in the busiest of homes, and offered in a wide selection of styles and colors. But luxury vinyl does have a few advantages over laminate flooring.
First, luxury vinyl is slightly more resistant to water, so it performs better in areas with a lot of moisture, like bathrooms and mudrooms. Second, luxury vinyl is thicker, making it more comfortable to walk on. Finally, Plano residents who expect to move in the near future can rest easy knowing that luxury vinyl can add to your home’s resale value.
Select Species of Hardwoods
Many Plano homeowners love the elegant look of hardwood floor but worry that all the activity in the home might damage the floor. The good news is that some hardwoods are better suited for active homes than others. So, with a little attention to choosing the right species, a hardwood floor can endure long past when your kids have moved out of the house. Many species, like red and white oak, Brazilian cherry, and hickory are all dense enough to stand up to the wear and tear of daily life, especially if you use area rugs to protect places in the home that see a lot of activity.
Hardwood floors are easy to maintain as well. Daily sweeping and mopping once a week is generally all it really takes to keep your floors clean. So along with having superior durability, hardwood floors won’t put a lot of pressure on your already hectic schedule.
