When exploring flooring options for your home, it is important to consider your room's activity level. Certain areas of our homes, particularly kitchens, entrances, hallways and common areas like dining and family rooms, experience more foot traffic than others. So, how do you determine what flooring is best for these high traffic areas?
We recommend that you select a flooring option that is durable enough to withstand constant foot traffic with minimal wear and tear. This month, Foundation Flooring brings you 3 of the most durable flooring solutions for high-traffic areas.
Tile flooring is durable and easy to care for, making it an ideal option for high-traffic rooms like kitchens and laundry rooms. Porcelain tile, in particular, is perfect for individuals who are looking for an attractive but low maintenance flooring option. Unlike many flooring materials, tile absorbs very little moisture, so spills can be easily cleaned up without staining your floors.
Ceramic tile can also be stamped to simulate stone, marble and even wood, making it a great choice for a variety of environments.
Like tile flooring, vinyl can also be printed to replicate the look of a variety of materials including stone and hardwood. Vinyl flooring is another popular choice among high traffic commercial and residential areas due to its durability, affordability, and resistance to heat, humidity and moisture.
However, you want to be cautious when choosing vinyl flooring. When it comes to vinyl flooring you get what you pay for, so pay extra attention to quality. The quality of the vinyl that you purchase will have a direct impact on how well it will withstand busy foot traffic.
Hardwood flooring is increasing in popularity and is one of the most durable choices when it comes to lfooring. Wood flooring is generally strong enough to withstand high-traffic areas and can be sanded down and refinished multiple times, often lasting for decades.
Although hardwood has a reputation for being pricy to install, the added value to the home and durability make hardwood floors a cost-effective choice in the long run.
