TYPES OF LAMINATE, HARDWOOD AND TILE FOR EACH ROOM

Flooring plays an important role in the home. Not only does it add an aesthetic appeal to certain styles of decor, but the floor you choose will determine the functionality and durability of a room. For example, you may not want to install shag carpet in the hobby room considering the potential for stains and extra wear. Instead, a laminate or tile may work better.

Solid flooring in particular can seem even more complicated, with so many different types of laminate, hardwood, and tile to choose from.

HOW CLEAN IS YOUR CARPET?

However, while carpet is a great choice, finding the right carpet can make or break the atmosphere, usability, and comfort of a room. Installing a less-than-durable carpet in the hobby room, for example, would limit the ways you would feel comfortable using that space.
