People often have a vague idea of how their dream home should look, pretty early on in their lives. The number of rooms, the size of the bedroom, the colors of the walls, the shape of the pool…pretty much everything will be selected. With the passing of time and years, those ideas only grow and refine; shaping to suit our present life. One thing most people forget to plan out though, is the floors of their home. The texture, the color, the material…and how our choices will last in the years to come; we need to think of these as well. Here are a few suggestions our experts have to give on it.
For the wettest parts of your home
Without a doubt, these parts will include your washrooms and your laundry room. Though most modern homes have just a common area for both of these, when building a house, people tend to allocate separate areas for these. For both these areas of your home, using porcelain floor tiles Sydney can be very advantages. Even if you don’t go for porcelain, just make sure that your selection of flooring for these areas need to be waterproof, slip proof, and easy to clean and maintain as well.
For the place where your meals are cooked
Modern families tend to make cooking a family event; if not every day, then occasionally at least. Though we agree that installing travertine floor tile can make your kitchen come alive, it’s not very practical. For one, it’s harder to clean and is less shock absorbent; and since the kitchen is one of the most accident prone areas of the house, it should be prepared to face both these issues. Instead, consider vinyl tiles. These are cheaper and more affordable, and you can even install them over an existing floor (in case of remodeling).
For the messiest people at home
Children, no doubt, can be very messy. Be it food or art work, playing with clay or taking their toy cars out on an adventure; it all ends up harming your home—walls and floors. For their playroom and bedroom, our experts suggest you floors that are easy to maintain and clean; like laminate. It looks fairly good, is easy to maintain and is also floor tiles Sydney! And the best part? It also costs less than most flooring and can also be installed over most existing floors. What more can we ask for?
For the places where nights are spent
It’s vital that you have a bedroom you can truly connect and relax with. While the colors of the walls, floors and even the furniture plays a huge part in this, don’t forget that the texture and materials have a say too. Your bedroom floors have to last long; so, they need to be durable. They should look good, as well as be easy to clean and maintain. Our experts suggest solid or engineered hardwood. Though they cost quite a bit, they not only look good, but they can also add to the value of your home in the long run.
