When it comes to home remodeling, it’s important to think of all aspects of the project, including your flooring material. Your flooring choice needs to satisfy both the aesthetic and functional needs of the room it will be installed in. Carpet, for instance, is not ideal for high-moisture areas. As the leading remodeling contractor in the region, JLR Home Renovation can help you select the best material for your renovation. Here are some choices to consider:
Tile offers a classic look that is perfect for both basements and bathrooms. It’s important, however, to ensure your tile is moisture-resistant. Some types of tile need to be sealed to improve their protection against water. You also need to keep your grout lines tight. We recommend choosing grout with additives that reduce moisture absorption. Stone tiles are popular for their spa-like appeal, but for a more versatile and low-maintenance option, we recommend porcelain or ceramic tiles.
Concrete is a great choice for basement remodeling projects. Contrary to popular belief, concrete is a versatile material that blends in seamlessly in a modern interior. In fact, you can invest in decorative techniques like concrete stamping or staining to make this highly durable material even more appealing.
For homeowners on a budget, we recommend investing in laminate flooring. It’s an affordable and easy-to-install flooring option for kitchens. We advise against using it in basements and bathrooms, however, as water penetration can cause the laminate to swell.
