Flooring Design and Style Elements

When choosing flooring for any room in your home your must strike a balance between style and utility for optimum design. The floors in your home or office should not only look good; the flooring material should be appropriate in the areas where they’re used to withstand the amount of foot traffic in the space.

Space

One of the most important things to consider when choosing your flooring material is the location where it will be installed. Consider if your flooring material will be indoors or outdoors, the amount of air and sunlight exposure and if the area will be exposed to frequent moisture. You’ll also want to consider the room's traffic volume. These factors, will help you narrow down your flooring material choices for functionality and style.

Concrete, ceramic tiles and natural stone are very resilient and most of them are tightly packed. That means they’ll have high resistance against water, shock and weight. This makes these flooring materials great for the outdoors, living rooms, lobbies, production floors and similar spaces. You’ll probably not want to use glass tiles and carpets in very busy and moist spaces to avoid wear and tear. These types of flooring materials usually work best for indoor rooms that serve minimalist purposes. Examples would be bedrooms, ballrooms, music rooms, etc.

Style

After doing your homework on which materials fit your needs from a utility/functionality perspective, it’s time to choose which styles catch your eyes. Since your floors will be part of your home or workplace for a long time, they might as well be aesthetically pleasing to the people who’ll be seeing them frequently. Fortunately, you’ll never be out of options as far as gorgeous flooring materials go.

Wood floors are always elegant and they never really go out of style. Carpets can show off artistic patterns that can be as simple or complex as you want them to be. Natural stone like travertine and marble are chic and timeless, while glass tiles can be spectacular with their brightness and dizzying arrays of colors and hues.

Comfort

Choosing the best flooring also means that your pick should make people comfortable while they’re standing on top of it. Fortunately, a lot of flooring materials are perfectly capable of that.

Carpets are soft, which means they reduce stress on ankles and knees. They also add warmth to your rooms by limiting indoor-outdoor air exchanges facilitated by air leaks in your floor. As far as comfort goes, it doesn’t get any better than a good carpet.

For areas where carpets are not a great option, wood is an excellent choice. While it’s not quite as soft as carpets, it’s usually warmer and easier on the legs than stone, tiles and concrete. Those harder surfaces are good as far as insulation is concerned, but they do make a slight trade-off between durability and comfort.

Foot Traffic

The type and number of people who will constantly spend time on your floors should also be factored in when making this important decision. Will it be a small family or a team of laborers in heavy boots? Are there children on the building or people with special needs? The answers to those questions will have an impact on the durability and texture of the flooring that you should choose. Smaller and less busy populations shouldn’t be a problem if you’re using carpets, linoleum, glass tiles or natural wood. For more heavy duty use, concrete, marble, ceramic or natural stone may be the better options.

Maintenance

Your floor may look nice and serve its purpose, but if you don’t have the knowledge or the resources to maintain it, you’ll be a very frustrated home or business owner in the long run. Different floor types need to be treated differently. Some are easier to maintain than others.

For instance, carpets are lovely but you’ll likely have to get them regularly cleaned by professionals to fully cleanse them and prevent microbe growth. While vacuuming them can take away loose dirt, it can leave marks on the carpet and it tends to leave behind deep-seated particles. Carpets can also harbor moisture when not properly maintained. If the issue gets out of hand, your rooms can develop a musty smell that’s hard to get rid of.

Wood is relatively easier to clean but some wood floor types may be susceptible to termites. You’ll have to get pest control to treat the wood once every few years to make sure that pests don’t end up snacking on your investment.

Stone, concrete and tiles are the easiest to maintain out of all the floor types. Regular cleaning methods will work great here. For best effects on smooth surfaces, polishing and buffing must be done from time to time.

Budget

Last but not the least, there’s the subject of money. It’s important to strike a balance between getting what you want in a flooring material while not breaking the bank. Fortunately, there are a lot of floor styles and types that are offered at friendly prices. If marble, glass or premium wood is out of your budget, you can always look at tiles, concrete or engineered wood as effective substitutes. Your flooring doesn’t have to be expensive to serve its purpose. It just has to do what you need it to do while providing your body some comfort and pleasing your eyes in the process.

Remember, a process of elimination usually works best when trying to choose the flooring material that’s right for you. Exercising due diligence in your research, going to showrooms and reading customer feedback on the flooring options you’re looking at will set you on the right path towards making the best choice.
