Fortunately, we are on the downslide of the winter season for this year. While we are still contending with cold temperatures and snow showers, it is safe to say spring is close. For many homeowners, spring is a season of dreaming about new home improvement projects. If you are looking to revamp any room in your home this year, don’t forget to make responsible flooring choices. After all, you will be living with your decision for years to come.
As we inch into spring and add items to your house to-do list, it is wise to consider flooring options that can stand up to everything spring throws at us. Between the rain and the mud, your floors take a beating in the spring season more so than any other time of year. Here are a few options that can handle spring and its elements.
When it comes to resisting water, it is hard to beat tile flooring. Ideal for a mudroom or entrance foyer, tile is easy to wipe up and clean when things get wet or muddy. Even better, tile comes in a variety of colors, shapes, and patterns which means your foyer or mudroom do not have to be boring to be durable. Try a pop of color or an intricate pattern that your guests will love (and that you will never get tired of).
An excellent choice for high traffic entry areas is vinyl. Before you shake your head as you remember the old vinyl flooring in your great-grandparents house, vinyl flooring has come a long way in the past few decades. Vinyl flooring options have something for every home owner’s style and preferences, and every option can withstand the mud, grime, and water from the spring season. Try vinyl in your mudroom or entry foyer, as well as your bathroom or kitchen. You can find plenty of colors and patterns that will leave everyone feeling pleasantly surprised at how beautiful and modern it looks.
Woods and Laminates
For your high traffic areas, steer clear from hardwood or laminate flooring. While beautiful and timeless anywhere else in your home, these flooring materials cannot withstand your rainboots and dog’s muddy paw prints. Make a better decision and keep hardwood or laminate floors to other parts of the home.
