What types of flooring are available?

Shopping for new floors is exciting but overwhelming. However, it doesn't have to be as long as you organize the categories.

There are three main categories of flooring. There are soft, hard, and resilient surfaces.

There are various kinds of flooring within each category. Following is a brief breakdown of each.

Carpet: the soft surface

Carpeting is elegant and comes with countless benefits. The most significant decision you'll make is fiber, the material from which the rug's yarns are made.

The five most common are wool a natural. Synthetics include nylon, polyester, olefin, and Triexta. At our flooring store, you'll see cut-piles, loops, textures, and shags from brands like Masland, Mohawk, Godfrey Hirst, and more.

Hard surfaces

1. Hardwood: This has two versions: solid and engineered. It has natural beauty and adds value to a property.

2. Tile: You'll see an unlimited number of colors, designs, shapes, and sizes here. There are porcelain, ceramic, stone, metal, and glass tiles.

3. Laminate wood flooring: This is an excellent alternative to genuine wood, with the same solid and rigid feel.

Available in both an original and waterproof version, these floors have depth, dimension, and textured looks. Come into our flooring company to see how realistic laminate flooring is.

Resilient flooring: your vinyl options

All types of vinyl, whether sheet, luxury, or waterproof flooring, is trending right now. These floors are durable, waterproof, easy to care for, and stylish.

They have wood, stone, and ceramic tile looks. The floors have depth, dimension, and textured looks and finishes.

Luxury vinyl, instead of sheet, can be cut into planks to mimic hardwood or square tile-sized pieces, mainly used for stone and tile looks.
