We get it. It’s a big decision. You need new flooring, but you don’t know where to start. Guess what? You’re at the right place. Our flooring experts at Floor Coverings International Columbia are here to offer an introductory look at the flooring options available to you.
Hardwood flooring is a great option for homeowners looking for ageless quality. Hardwood floors have always been in style and will always be in style. They will also enhance the value of your home. Hardwood floors come in solid wood or engineered wood. Solid wood has thick planks of wood, while engineered wood sits atop a core of plywood. Hardwood is commonly installed in family rooms, living rooms, and bedrooms.
Carpet provides warmth, style, and safety. It is the softest flooring option and comes in a huge array of colors and styles. Carpet is really good for homes with children or elderly people because it’s not slippery and can pad a fall. Carpet is commonly found in bedrooms and living rooms.
Tile and Stone Flooring
Tile and stone are our most popular flooring options for kitchens and bathrooms. Both offer a very low water absorption rate and are highly durable. The variety of colors, styles, and materials are endless and can fit any budget.
Vinyl flooring is part of the resilient category of flooring, meaning it is harder than carpet, but softer than most other surfaces. It tends to give a little bit, making it a good fit for homes with children. Sheet vinyl is among the least expensive flooring options.
Laminate flooring has made huge improvements in recent years with advancements in printing technology. Laminate can offer virtually any look or style for a fraction of the price. Want a marble stone look without the enormous price tag? Laminate flooring might be the option for you.
