You walk over it every day, sometimes while barefoot. Being in such close contact with your floor should make you seriously consider the type of flooring material you have installed in your home. Choosing the floor covering for your home depends on many factors. Your lifestyle and home design will help you to choose whether true hardwood or durable laminate is best for your home. We install both here at Sharp Floors & Granite Countertops, your reliable flooring company in Irving.
Hardwood floors are traditional and give your home a classic look. We have a variety of different woods and finishes to create the look you want. The type of wood chosen for the floor determines the look of the floor. Classic hardwood like pine has a light appearance that is great for casual homes. Cherry wood floors give a rich elegance to more formal areas. For a unique appearance in your home, consider exotic hardwoods. Wood floors require special care, but they will last with proper care for decades, retaining their distinctive look.
Laminate flooring comes in a variety of styles, including laminate made to look like hardwood, but laminate wood flooring is more durable and requires almost no maintenance. This is a good option for homes with pets or young children. If you want the look of wood without the work, laminate might be the choice for you.
The only difference will be how the laminate and wood floors feel underfoot. Consider your lifestyle and whether you must have real wood or need the durability of laminate.
Choosing to install a new floor covering in your home is a major decision. Your choice will likely be a permanent fixture in your home for years. We can help you choose the best floor for your home if you need help, and we provide both laminate and hardwood floor installation in Irving, call us at Sharp Floors & Granite Countertops at 214-227-2841.
