What is the best type of flooring that you want for your
home? This is the most daunting decision for most home owners because they know
that they will be living with the floor for many years to come. It will really depend on the preferences of
the home owner; it's like buying a car or that particular boutique bag that you
desired to have for a long time. When you bought something that you like, you
will feel good about it. The right flooring will set the right ambience and wow
your guests when they visit your beautiful home.
Now that we understand that selecting the floor is very
important, we need to select one which is easy to maintain, highly water
resistant, able to withstand heavy weights without causing dent or abrasion and
also has high slip resistance.
Especially when you are living in tropical climates such as
Singapore, other than the flooring must look attractive to you; you must also
select the flooring with very high resistance to strong humidity especially if
you are considering laminate flooring. In this way, the chance of replacing
your floor due to warping in less than a year will be zero.
Think of this way, you have already installed the flooring, and
you have started using it every day. What
kind of feeling do you want when you step on it or what problems do you not
want your floors to have. Is the flooring sound proof when you step on it? Do
you have children? You know that when they reach a certain age, your children
will tend to run and run all over the house Right? Is the flooring slip
resistant? Can it prevent scratches or dents that are caused by constant
running on the floor by the kids? On the other hand, is it healthy for your
children? Almost all laminate flooring emits formaldehyde due to its resin
layer. This is especially harmful to children and old folks' heath. Hence it is
very important to choose the right flooring with zero or minimal formaldehyde emissions.
Flooring brands such as Tarkett is one of the top choices for
healthy laminate flooring among home users and child care centers in Singapore
The color selection for your home is also very important.
Consult a flooring specialist or interior designer about what kind of mood you
want for your home. Most importantly choose something that is contrast between
the walls and the floor. A typical modern design home has bright or light
colored flooring with clean white walls. If you want to have a cozy feel for
the home, choose something of a darker tone. At the end of the day, the owner
and his or her family must feel good with the overall look of their homes.
Take some time to choose the right flooring for your home,
do some research on the type of flooring that you want; and last but not least,
enjoy living with your flooring for the years to come!
