How to Choose the Right Flooring
Choosing the right hardwood flooring for your home is more than choosing what matches your decor or budget. You need to consider essential factors such as cost, moisture resistance, durability, and ease of installation to guide you toward the best option.
First Class Wood Flooring offers hardwood flooring, laminate flooring, and vinyl plank flooring to meet your needs and budget. If you’re looking for something durable, we have several types of hardwood flooring such as oak, ash, and cherry. For something more affordable, we carry engineered hardwoods and laminate flooring options.
Flooring by Room Function and Element Exposure: High-Moisture, Pets, and More
When choosing the right type of hardwood flooring for your home, here are some elements to consider:
For high-moisture areas in your home, such as the kitchen or bathroom, we recommend waterproof laminate flooring or waterproof vinyl flooring. These flooring types prevent water damage and weakening.
Homes with pets require flooring that can stand up to scratches. Vinyl floor planks and engineered wood flooring are not only scratch-resistant but also easy to clean. If pets are not an issue, we recommend solid hardwood flooring for areas such as living rooms and hallways.
Flooring by Square Footage Budget
If you’re on a budget but still want attractive flooring, waterproof laminate is a good choice. Its price range is:
- $2 or less per square footage
The below price range is where most people find a balance between function and form at an acceptable price. It includes engineered hardwood flooring and solid hardwood flooring made from local hardwood species.
- $2 – $5 per square footage
The premium price tag includes some of the hardiest and more durable species of hardwood. These species add a touch of class to any home. Their price range is:
- More than $5 per square footage
Flooring by Installation
and Maintenance Needs
If you want to install vinyl or laminate flooring, they are easy DIY options. If you prefer hardwood flooring, get a professional to install hardwood floors.
Vinyl flooring is the easiest to maintain, followed by laminate flooring. Solid hardwood floors require professional cleaning and sanding.
