Right Flooring for Your Home

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 today.

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!
