No matter your lifestyle, finding the right flooring that suits how you live is just as important as how it looks!
Seems easy, right? But what wears best under those scrambling dog feet? What stands up to the occasional bathroom flood — even if no one knows how it happened? What about a bit more sound proofing — the latest teen playlist isn’t that bad, is it?
Expert advice is priceless
Let the experts at Floor Envy help you decide on the right flooring to suit your lifestyle, budget, and your personal style too.
“Your floor is an investment — no matter what floor you choose, we always recommend high-quality products from trusted manufacturers and we only sell products we would install in our own homes,” says Lacey Kelly, owner of Floor Envy.
There’s a lot of choice out there and it can seem daunting, so talking to someone who knows what should go where, how it will stand up, and what will suit your family makes it all so much easier.
Wood, laminate, vinyl or carpet?
“The big three in the flooring world are laminate, vinyl and engineered hardwood — and what might work best may pleasantly surprise you!” Kelly notes.
If you have a busy home with pets and kids, something that can stand up to a lot of busy feet is a must. Laminate is scratch-resistant and many are water-resistant, too — perfect for those higher-traffic areas like the mudroom.
If you need a bit more water resistance, perhaps in the bathroom, kitchen or laundry room, vinyl is a great option — there are many different finishes and tones to suit your home and it will continue to look good even after the kids have grown up.
The look and warmth of hardwood is popular, and engineered hardwood offers luxury and warmth of natural wood — great for the living room and bedrooms too. Available in a variety of finishes and tones, it can add visual warmth and is a great neutral base for all your other décor.
If carpet is an option you want to consider, especially if you want a bit more warmth or sound proofing, the experts at Floor Envy can help you choose the right carpet and underlay to suit your family’s needs.
