Floor maintenance isn’t something we always make time to do. Our daily list of priorities always seem to grow throughout the day and, well, other things end up taking precedence. As a homeowner, keeping the house clean and organized is not the most enjoyable task and gets pushed back until that “must-do” moment. Even if you love to clean, when you’re considering new flooring options, an easy-to-clean and easy-to-maintain floor can save you a lot of hassle.
To help you choose the right home flooring option, we have a listed out a few types of floors that you should consider.
The kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the house. We all spend hours in the kitchen preparing meals, kids come and go looking for snacks, or it’s a gathering place for friends and family.
Whether we use the room to entertain guests and to bond with our family or for some time alone, the biggest messes are in the kitchen. We wouldn’t want carpet or hard to clean material in the kitchen. With the wrong flooring, your kitchen floors won’t last long. So what is the right flooring option? We suggest installing ceramic tiles in this part of your house. Why? It’s because it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. And when it’s clean – it sparkles.
Aside from being low maintenance, ceramic tiles are also water resistant, stylish, and durable – everything you could ever want in new flooring. The only thing that goes into maintaining ceramic flooring is making sure they’re clean! There’s no need to refinish or redo them if properly cleaned and undamaged.
It sounds weird, but stone and concrete flooring are two of the top contenders when it comes to low maintenance flooring. If you are looking for a dependable low maintenance flooring, check out stone flooring.
In the past, we have only seen concrete flooring in restaurants and warehouses. But as people are realizing the benefits of stone flooring, there’s now the booming trend of exposed brick and the industrial look for homes. And we have to say; they’re absolutely gorgeous. There’s a reason why such large commercial complexes use concrete. Not only is it one of the cheaper natural stone options, but it doesn’t require long or heavy-duty cleaning. Just sweep and rush out the door.
We are seeing a significant increase in the number of homes with concrete flooring because of how great they are aesthetically and to maintain. Plus, the availability of a wide variety of colors and finishes makes it an excellent choice for stylish residential homes.
