How To Choose The Best Flooring Style For Your Lifestyle In Florida

When it comes to choosing flooring for your Florida home, you need to look beyond the aesthetics and price tag.

You need to choose a type of flooring that will make sense for living in Florida, as well as, your family’s lifestyle.

Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing a flooring.

When You Live With Pets

If your home will also be a home for pets, your best choice of flooring would be tile. Tiles can easily be mopped in the event of an accident and are not prone to scratches from your pet's nails. If you must have carpeting, look for one that has built-in odor eliminating enzymes and is not made from loose piling.

When You Live With Kids

The choice of flooring will significantly depend on the age of your children. If you have a baby or toddler, you may want to have soft carpeting at first to help them avoid injury while crawling and learning to walk. As your children age, you will want to consider resilient flooring or ceramic tile so that it is stain resistant and easy to clean. There are many different options for flooring that you can select from during the various stages of your children's lives.

When You Love To Entertain

Although there are many types of glamorous flooring choices and luxurious carpeting styles, if you really love to entertain, these may not be your best choice. A lot of foot traffic on these types of floors causes wear quickly, and the flooring quickly becomes ugly. You may want to stay with a more flexible type of flooring or tile for your floor choice to ensure that your floors remain looking great for as long as possible.

When You Are Getting Older

After the kids are grown and gone, seniors may find that a change of flooring is in their best interest. A soft carpeting that has very low piling will be much easier to walk on and can be used easily with walkers and wheelchairs. If a fall occurs, a carpeted floor will help cushion the fall, whereas a tiled floor could cause more harm.

Thinking Of Buying New Construction In Florida?
