If you’re thinking you don’t see flooring as regional, stick with us for a minute! There are some reasons that your location should be one of the things you consider when choosing new flooring for your home!
Here in the heart of the Hill Country we have more good weather than bad, more warm weather than cold. Austinites tend to lead very active lifestyles, and while we don’t know the exact numbers on how many dogs live in our city we’re willing to bet it’s above average. Point being low maintenance and durability are key features.
Wood is Still a Winner
Natural hardwood flooring never goes out of style. It is very durable and can withstand being refinished and re-stained several times over its lifetime. Don’t overlook hybrids or engineered wood. Both these options give you natural wood with less maintenance. You also have to worry less about warping due to humidity which is a huge plus in Central Texas! There are so many more aesthetic options than there were just a few years ago. If you haven’t looked at these products recently, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Not Your Grandparents’ Vinyl
Speaking of new products — if the mention of vinyl flooring makes you think of a 60’s era kitchen it’s definitely time to take a fresh look! Luxury vinyl comes in so many different styles that there is something for everyone. Vinyl can cosplay as just about anything. Tiles made to look like stone or porcelain, planks that resemble any type of wood, even rolls printed with a variety of chic designs. It’s also very budget-friendly and extremely durable. Vinyl can stand up to the busiest households and look fantastic in the process.
Tile is Always Good
For low maintenance, durable and timeless you really can’t beat tile. The variety available now means you can install tile to match any style in any room. You can even get tile that looks like wood. There are also a great variety of shapes and sizes. You don’t have to have 12-inch squares to enjoy the convenience of tile anymore!
