Top flooring choices for a high-traffic area

Installing flooring in high-traffic areas of your home takes some consideration. You want every part of your house to look nice and be easy to care for. Some rooms that need special attention are washrooms, dining areas, kitchen, and foyer as these places see a lot of traffic from family and friends. Below are tips on what types of flooring your Calgary flooring store can offer you for busy zones.

Natural stone

Natural materials are truly special, offering you beauty and durability. Stone flooring in Calgary is made to withstand many elements since it is a naturally formed product. Choosing limestone, granite or sandstone is ideal as they are three of the strongest stone floors available.

Natural stone is water-resistant so when using it in high-traffic spots, you don’t have to worry about wrecking the finish of your floors. This product lends itself well to washrooms, kitchens, and front entrances that are exposed to moisture most often.

Engineered hardwood

Engineered hardwood has the luxurious appearance of natural hardwood but is more durable. If you have pets wandering around with scratchy nails, wear stiletto heels, and have kids running through the house at all hours of the day, then an engineered wood floor is a good choice. These floors are constructed to handle high traffic without getting severely damaged. While natural hardwood can easily get scratched and dented, engineered hardwood is made to withstand a lot of trekking around.

Tile

Are you on a tight budget but want the look of a natural product for your flooring? Not to worry, no matter what style of flooring you desire, tile can offer you a variety of finishes. It can pretend to be hardwood, marble, or slate. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are some of the most versatile and durable flooring options created to withstand the test of time.

Laminate

This flooring option is made up of four layers of material, so it is super strong yet comfy under your feet. Laminate flooring is aesthetically pleasing and very easy to clean. A simple damp mopping periodically will keep your floors in good shape even if your kids are prone to spilling things often. Go ahead, enjoy entertaining in your home. Your freshly installed laminate floors will look gorgeous in the foyer and dining area.

Guess what else? Laminate can be installed quickly by a professional so if you are keen for a remodel, this is the ideal choice!

Carpet

A carpet is a durable option for your home with many new combinations of fibres and designs available from Calgary flooring stores. Carpets are not only plush under your bare feet but are made to withstand a lot of use. Some of the best carpets for durability are woven with nylon and wool. These fibres are strong, so won’t break down as easily as with some other materials. Many carpets are created to resist stains.

There is nothing quite like going to your Calgary flooring store armed with the knowledge of the best flooring types for your needs. Now that you are equipped with this information, you can make an informed decision on your new flooring!
