You can choose one of several types of flooring for either room. Luxury vinyl flooring comes in wood-look planks or stone-look tiles. High-tech designs are so realistic, it’s hard to tell the difference between the vinyl and real wood and stone. A transparent wear layer on top of the vinyl guarantees durability. For a DIY project, choose click and lock planks that float over the subfloor.
Laminate, the most affordable type of flooring, will also give you a wood or stone look. While laminate is made of wood, the top coating consists of aluminum oxide. Therefore, it is resistant to fading, stains, dents, and scratches. A product that has an AC rating level of AC3 is durable enough for a high traffic area like your kitchen. Laminate is often installed as a floating floor.
Ceramic tile can last a lifetime. It’s very difficult to crack, and it resists dirt, allergens, and stains. It’s also environmentally friendly and easy to maintain. Grade II tile flooring is sufficient for bathrooms, but it is best to use Grade III tile in a high traffic area like a kitchen. The last option, engineered wood, is an elegant complement to a stylish kitchen. This affordable plank is created with plywood and a top layer of hardwood.
No doubt, you’ll be including area rugs in your kitchen renovation or bathroom renovation. Synthetic rugs provide water- and UV-resistance at a low price. Nylon is a better-quality fiber than polypropylene, but both hide dirt well. Wool rugs are expensive but last for decades. The fibers don’t flatten easily, and they are naturally stain-resistant.
