It is nice living in Florida, but it has been said of Florida, “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes, it will change”. I found that to be absolutely true in my time living there. I can’t tell you how many days started out as sunny, then became unbearably hot, only to have rain fall in the afternoon and cool everything down. Flooring in Daytona Beach needs to be as adaptable to temperatures as possible. It also has to be able to stand up to the humidity and dry air that Florida can dispense with equal frequency.
I also noticed that the trend in flooring in Daytona Beach was toward hard surfaces. It seems that the more heat the sun generates, the more families need some type of flooring that will help keep them a little cooler. That’s why I saw most homes with tile in the main gathering areas with a few area rugs thrown down for a softer surface where needed. Ceramic tile and natural stone flooring will help keep the home cool by adapting to the temperature of the house. In the case of air conditioning, stone and ceramic tile will remain cooler longer and reflect the cooler temperatures back into the room, making the AC work more efficiently.
In the rare case that the heat is necessary, flooring in Daytona Beach also needs to keep the heat in the room. Stone and ceramic tile are once again very efficient at holding the temperature after the initial heat has shut off and will help keep the room warmer for longer periods of time. In addition to their obvious beauty and versatility, stone and ceramic tile flooring in Daytona Beach is also utilitarian.
