What Works Best Where?
Robert nods. “I bet you’re right, I also kind of remember hearing something about that.” Christina laughs. “Yeah, imagine putting carpeting in the kitchen.” Robert laughs too.
“Well, I guess we should look up the best flooring type for rooms like kitchens and bathrooms, right? Also some remodelers in the area?” Robert asks. “2 steps ahead of you,” Christina says as she unlocks her phone and gets on Google. She and Robert start searching for flooring types.
After a while, here is what they find:
The Best Flooring Types
The best flooring type for kitchens and bathrooms is tile. It’s durable and water-resistant. Hardwood is ideal for any other room in your house. It’s easier to stand on and creates a warm and inviting look. Carpeting is another good option for other rooms as it’s great underfoot.
Tile Flooring Types
Tile, in general, is durable and water-resistant. It also comes in a wide range of styles and colors, even natural stone and hardwood. The problem is it isn’t comfortable to stand on for too long. Many people get around this by putting rugs down. Tile can also crack if something heavy falls on it.
Porcelain is actually a type of ceramic tile. It’s thicker and harder to make, which means it’s more durable and pricier. But it should hold up better than ceramic tiles.
Hardwood And Carpet Flooring
Both have many different colors and styles to choose from too. They’re more comfortable to stand on and create a warm and inviting look.
Neither of these flooring types does well with water. Any spills need cleaning pretty quickly or it can cause damage.
