Choosing Your Floors
Best Laminate Flooring Flemington, NJ
Your floors may not be the first thing anyone sees when they enter your home. But, it is probably the most impactful element of a room. Your flooring provides a solid ground for every other piece and enhancement you add to your home. Because your floors are so prominent in the foundation of your home, choosing the right product for your needs and lifestyle is key. At The Rug Mart Carpet One in Flemington, NJ, we are here to help with that choice. We are available to answer your questions on things like flooring installation or flooring options. Our flooring consultants are very knowledgeable about all things flooring and our products. But in the meantime, we want to help you start the process. So, we have compiled a brief snapshot listing our most popular flooring categories and the features they possess!
Carpet is the most popular flooring product used today in residential settings. Carpet is a great choice for playrooms, bedrooms and more, and can be made out of a number of different fibers. Carpet can provide a good and soft landing space for small children to explore and walk safely. Carpet is not as well-suited to rooms with high moisture levels such as kitchens or bathrooms. Carpet can also stain easily, but we carry a variety of products with stain resistant and soil resistant features.
Hardwood has been around for a while, and we consider it the most classic option. Though hardwood is more expensive than some other flooring, it is a great investment. Hardwood is a long lasting floor and will also increase the value of your home. Hardwood stands up well to foot traffic and heavy furniture, and it is also easy to clean. Best for living rooms, dining rooms or entryways, hardwood can add a formal flare while still being able to absorb the activities of the space. However, hardwood is affected by moisture and the planks can warp, buckle or bow. This means the best way to clean wood floors is by limiting the moisture. Hardwood should be kept out of high moisture rooms like bathrooms or laundry rooms.
Laminate is one of the more affordable products we sell, and this is due in part to the materials that are used to make it up. Interestingly, laminate is made to look like natural materials such as hardwood or stone, but it is actually made from recycled wood fibers. The fibers are formed into a board and topped with a high definition photograph of hardwood and so on. Then the boards are fused together for extra durability and a realistic look! Laminate is versatile in terms of look, but reacts to moisture in a similar way to hardwood. The best laminate flooring has a protective seal which makes it wear resistant and scratch resistant.
Vinyl is a great choice if you are looking for waterproof flooring. Vinyl is installed using a seamless method, resulting in a moisture-proof surface. This makes vinyl a good option for laundry rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and other high moisture spaces. A newer type of vinyl called LVT, or luxury vinyl tile, is made to look like stone tiles, ceramic, or hardwood planks. If you are searching for the look of tile but are on a budget, LVT is a great option. Similarly, you can now have the look of hardwood in your bathroom without having to worry about ruining your floors!
Tile is one of the most popular waterproof floors. More than that, tile can work well for so many spaces in your home including outdoors. Ceramic tile is made out of clay. The clay is shaped into pieces and then fired in a kiln. Tiles are then glazed, which means there are limitless options when it comes to color or pattern. The glaze also makes them waterproof and stain-proof. Plus, tiles are installed one by one so you can arrange them in any order you’d like! Tile is also not just for flooring; you can use it as a lining for your tub or shower, as a kitchen backsplash or even as a fireplace border.
We hope that this overview has provided some more insight into your decision and helped you come closer to the final pick!
