6 Different Types of and Uses for Residential Flooring

Modern living brings with it many benefits. Information is available at our fingertips and on demand. Technology continues to make things easier and better every day.

Technology and innovation has also given us more options for our residential flooring, allowing for a wide variety of carpet, tile, and other flooring.

There are so many options these days—from styles and colors to materials and treatments—that it would be almost impossible to list them all. So here are a few main types of flooring available:

  • Hardwood - Hardwood floors are a classic flooring option, which exude sophistication and beauty. Hardwood flooring is also versatile, and can work in just about every room of the house.
  • Carpet - Carpet is the classic soft-surface flooring. Carpet creates an indulgent, warm feel in rooms, and looks great in almost any room of the house.  Affordable carpet is easy to find at your local carpet store and carpet installation takes very little time if handled by professionals.
  • Tile - Tile floors are highly durable and need very little maintenance. Popular as an option for bathrooms and kitchens, tile is also affordable.
  • Slate - Irregular slate or stone flooring is popular for cabins, as well as bathroom remodels. It provides a natural look, and the irregular shapes are very eye-catching. Extremely durable, slate can be tough to install, so consider hiring a professional.
  •  Marble - Marble floors are possibly the ultimate in style and sophistication. They are perfect for lower-traffic areas like bathrooms, although they can be quite expensive.
  • Laminate - Laminate flooring has, over the last 25 years, become one of the most popular flooring options in the world. It offers the attractiveness of hardwood or stone, and is highly durable, at a fraction of the cost. It is also easy to install.

These are just a few of the popular flooring options for homes. There are many more, including porcelain, bamboo, engineered hardwood, and many, many others.
