A lack of money does not have to hold you back from improving your Lowcountry home. The following are three trendy flooring options that are not only affordable but top quality.
Laminate wood flooring not only looks good but is also easy to clean. It is available in various hues and styles to make it easy for homeowners to pick the right color and type of laminate flooring for any room of the home. Laminate flooring is also bacteria and mold resistant and can hold up to a great deal of wear and tear. It does scratch and dent fairly easily but homeowners can prevent a great deal of damage by putting protector pads on chair and sofa legs.
Some people use only one color of carpet tile to create uniform flooring while others use a variety of colors and patterned tiles to create a unique atmosphere. In either case, carpet tiles are easy to install and clean and they create a warm atmosphere in the home. Furthermore, carpet is safe for children and the elderly as it is not slippery and provides cushioning to those who fall. Another advantage of carpet tiles is that one or more tiles can be replaced should something spill on them, saving you the hassle of having to hire a professional carpet cleaning company to scrub out stubborn stains.
Linoleum is not only affordable but also eco-friendly. This type of flooring is fully biodegradable and does not emit harmful VOCs. It is available in sheet and tile format, can be purchased in a variety of colors and is easy to clean and maintain. What is more, it can last for decades. However, it is important to note that linoleum is softer than other types of flooring and so it can be easily dented or scratched by pet claws, furniture or young children.
It is a good idea to assess your budget carefully when planning home improvements to determine how much money you can spend on flooring.
