Most of them have different things to say about their choices but we would like to share some of the most common reasons that they are using.
Hardwood Flooring ( Both real and fake )
How to Choose between Hardwood vs. Vinyl or Ceramic Tile Floors & what’s The Difference?
Flooring choices are a function of a number of factors. One is cost. Since vinyl and ceramic tile floors cost more, customers tend to choose them when space is at a premium, or when budget doesn’t allow for expensive hardwood floors. Whereas hardwood floors are an excellent choice for a room with a lot of activity and people, or when homeowners want the warm look and feel of wood flooring. And in fact, since wood floors can be refinished time after time (usually every 10-to-12 years), the cost over time is less than for other flooring options.
In some rooms, hardwood flooring cannot be beat. View the following categories and see which is the best option for your space. The purpose of choosing a flooring material is to:
1. Provide your home with warmth, comfort and ease of maintenance.
2. Create spaces that reflect your personal vision for how you want your home to look and function.
3. Make your home more attractive and more valuable.
4. Enhance the appearance of a room and make it easier to clean.
5. Enhance the appearance of a room with flooring that complements other furnishings – cabinets, countertops, etc.
6. Add value and increase resale value of your home – hardwood flooring is likely to add from 10-to-15% or more to the overall sale price of your home!
7. Give your home a unique and stylish look.
Where do you Buy your Flooring Material?
Customers can buy flooring material from many retailers, but the no. 1 reason people choose Floor and Decor is that it has a large selection, including hundreds of samples on display, so customers can pick out exactly what they want. And, most important, if customers like something in the showroom flooring, they buy it. No ordering an expensive sample that might not work in their home. And it works the opposite way, too – because Floor and Decor provides a wide variety of options to choose from, customers can find flooring that is perfectly suited for their home.
People who choose Floor and Decor most often say that the top three reasons for their purchase were: quality, selection and price.
Quality: With flooring, quality is key. And with over 150 brands of flooring in stock at all times, Floor and Decor has a large selection of flooring styles to choose from. Everything from stone, tile, hardwood and laminate to carpet is available at Floor and Decor stores.
Selection: Whether customers are looking for the newest styles and trends or classical looks, customers can find it at Floor and Decor.
Do You Need a Specialty/Premium Flooring Material For Your Concrete Countertops?
The most common type of flooring in industrial, commercial and institutional settings is hardwood flooring. It’s comfortable, durable and easy to install. But hardwoods are not always the best choice for countertops, since they absorb moisture from the concrete surface below. And over time this can lead to staining or warping of the countertops or even discoloring of the concrete. But customers can choose from three options: premium, standard and engineered. Premium floors are thicker than standard and engineered, so more resistant to moisture. So if you’re looking for a premium, solid wood surface, you may want to consider an engineered floor, which is made up of layers of wood veneers glued together. But with either type of premium or standard, solid hardwood floor you’ll still need a finish layer to seal in the moisture and protect the hardwood.
