The right type of flooring is another detail you do not want to overlook. Remember that floor stains and spills can be messy to clean up and should definitely be something to consider when choosing floor materials. Also, be cautious of the wear of certain materials over time, because not all of them may age gracefully and could alter the look of the room as a unit over time. Carpet is a standard option for many spaces, and varies in color and thickness, but can be difficult to clean and expensive to maintain. Carpets can also become permanently stained, which is something to keep in mind when choosing appropriate flooring. Wooden floors are some of the easiest to maintain and clean. Wood comes in a variety of colors and textures from rich, dark, and smooth to creamier, lighter, and grainier.
Wooden floors create striking contrasts with lighter materials in kitchens, but if the floors and cabinets are similar colors, a peaceful balance is achieved. This material is also very durable and can hold heavy furnishings very well. Remember to maintain your wooden floors as, over time, a gleaming wooden floor can become dull without proper care. For bathrooms, tile is the regular choice but it comes creative in forms that look like natural stone or wood. Italian ceramic tile is constructed with more texture than typical wall tile to prevent you from slipping and falling. If your dream is to feel like you are inside of a spa, choose real, natural stone. You can find large panels of it and it comes in a multitude of colors, textures and waterproof finish.
Vinyl flooring is also an inexpensive solution and provides resistance to stains.
