Very rarely do we give much thought to the ground we walk on. But when it’s in our own home, we suddenly care a lot about how it looks. With so many options available, it can be difficult to decide which will look and wear the best. Depending on your lifestyle – a house full of kids and pets may take a bit more of a beating than others – selecting the best flooring for your home can be easier than you may think. Check out this list of the 5 best floor types for your home:

  1. Cork and Bamboo Lumping these two eco-friendly flooring solutions together just makes sense. Both offer durability, as well as a natural feel however keep in mind that both options can be susceptible to water damage if not properly sealed and can also be a bit on the pricey side.



  1. Wood A classic option, wood flooring is a selling point for any home. Not only is it extremely resilient to wear but it can be stripped and refinished through the years to change the look. Although wood flooring can be difficult to install, it is an excellent selling point for any home.



  1. Tile Both ceramic and stone tile flooring offer a strong surface, great for a kitchen or bathroom. And since they are tiles, if one is damaged, it’s a relatively easy fix to repair or replace.



  1. Concrete A newcomer to the scene, concrete flooring is obviously extremely durable. It can come in a variety of colorations and is very easy to clean. Maintenance can be a hassle though, as concrete needs to be properly sealed every few years to avoid water damage.



  1. Carpet The most comfortable option, wall to wall carpeting is the most popular idea for living spaces such as bedrooms and family rooms. Not only is it soft, it’s warm and serves the extra purpose of keeping a room well insulated. However, as we all know, spills happen and carpet can be difficult to maintain looking pristine.
