If you have children, installing carpet in most rooms might be a good idea. This soft flooring option leads to most comfortable family game nights on the living room floor and brings warmth in the winter months. Worrying about carpet stains is a thing of the past due to new stain-resistant carpet technology and patterns that have been carefully crafted to hide marks. Carpets also act as a giant filter for your home whereas hard floor options force particles to settle on the top.
Hardwood flooring is a beautiful option in any home and is a popular choice for Flagstaff & Northern Arizona cabin homes. This option may seem like it can take a little more of a cleaning commitment but the smooth surface allows for an easy, quick clean, every time. Its distinctive grains and swirling burnished figures add a classic touch throughout your home. Hardwood’s rich character never goes out of style. Hardwood flooring adds a tremendous amount of value to your home and never goes out of style.
Durable, low cost and soft underfoot may sound like an impossible combination but vinyl does just that. Vinyl is quickly becoming the most popular type of flooring because of its versatility and affordable price point. If you are indecisive in nature or like to keep up with interior design trends every few years, maybe this is the best route for you. Vinyl is easy to install, replace, swap out and can all be done at a better price than other flooring options.
Tile is a durable option that might lead to more head bumps with toddlers but offers easy clean up for any spill or mess. There are an infinite amount of options for tile and how you want them laid in your home. You can get anything from hardwood-inspired tile planks to small, hand-stamped tiles. Depending on the design, most tile hides dirt very well, so you won’t be visually triggered to sweep daily. If you live in a hot area like Arizona, tile immensely cools down a home and might be a good idea to have in most of the house.
