Choosing flooring is much more complicated than simply finding the best-looking or best-priced product. There are plenty of other factors to weigh up: moisture, durability, versatility, and comfort. And whether you're updating a room or your entire home, which flooring you choose will have an enormous impact on the overall look and feel. Here's what to keep in mind as you search for your home's flooring soulmate:

Carpet—the King of Comfort

Put simply—there’s nothing like sinking your toes into a deep pile of a luxurious carpet when you first get out of bed on a frosty winter’s morning. Let’s face it: carpet is the king of comfort and warmth and new technology means in-built stain protection. It’s also a great choice if you have kids: it’ll cushion any of their falls and reduce room-to-room noise.

Hardwood—Worth the Price-tag

Perfect for any decorating style or color scheme, hardwood is timeless, versatile, ageless, strong and durable. It's certainly worth the price-tag with its unique character and beautiful grain. Keep in mind that hardwood naturally wants to absorb moisture so areas like kitchens and bathrooms may require further consideration.

Laminate—Looks Like Real Wood

It looks like real wood but without the price tag (or the scratching), it’s easy to maintain, quick to install, and gives an authentic, inspired-by-nature look. It’s also a great DIY option due to the simple click-and-lock installation method and comes in a huge array of textures and patterns.

Waterproof Flooring—Takes a Beating

Got kids or fur-babies? Perfect when you need something scratch and stain resistant, low in allergens, easy to clean, non-slip, and quiet. Plus, did you know that waterproof flooring can literally be submerged in water for days with no ill effect. Incredible, but true.

Vinyl—Flexible & Goes Everywhere

Quiet & cost-effective, vinyl gives you a plethora of color and style options while being water, mildew, and stain-resistant. It’s also super easy to maintain—simply spray, wipe or sweep away spills. Case closed!

Area Rugs—Cozy & Versatile

There’s nothing like settling in on a thick-cut rug with the kids after another long day. Finding the perfect area rug is not only practical, but it also makes your home cozier and can set the tone of the entire room (which is great if you need a budget-friendly flooring solution).
