Basement Flooring Options

Homeowners with basements face a unique set of challenges. Basements are below grade, meaning basement humidity levels are too inconsistent to install solid hardwood floors. However, there are plenty of other basement flooring options from which to choose. Many homeowners opt to install lower cost flooring in their basements. Vinyl, carpet, and laminate can be terrific and cost-effective options for basements. Vinyl and carpet offer added comfort because of their softer composition.

Kitchen Flooring Options

Customers often list beauty and practicality among reasons for choosing kitchen flooring. This is why tile, laminate, and hardwood are popular kitchen flooring options. Tile is among the most water resistant flooring options available. Laminate is highly durable and comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Hardwood can offer a seamless transition from adjacent family rooms and living rooms.

Wood Flooring Options

Hardwood flooring has never been more prevalent or accessible than it is today. Homeowners can choose from a massive assortment of wood species and styles. Birch hardwood, ash hardwood, and pine hardwood are three of our most well liked species. Distressed hardwood, rustic hardwood, and hand scraped hardwood floors are extremely popular styles for homeowners desiring the farmhouse and Pottery Barn look.
