Flooring of your home

The primary surfaces that comprise any interior space are the ceiling, walls and flooring. It is in the skill of the designer to blend these in such a way as to leave the viewer in awe, and the home owner with maximum comfort. Flooring adds a lot of value and contributes significantly to the décor and ambience of a home.

Appropriate flooring decides the tone of any place. Today, the market has plenty of different options to choose from. The flooring alone can be used as a form of art to express the creativity of the interior designer or home owner. There are quite a few popular types of flooring available for Indian home such as wooden, marble, cement, mosaic, porcelain, ceramic, vitrified, etc and choosing the right one can be quite difficult with so many varieties. Here are some factors you might want to consider while finalising on the flooring for your home.

Style – If your aim is to achieve a formal and elegant look for your home, hardwood flooring is the way to go. Vice versa, if your home is filled with a lot of people and can get noisy on occasions, carpeting is great option for disguising the dirt and absorbing noise. However, not such a great idea if you have pets.

Comfort – This is by far the most important thing to consider while choosing your flooring. If you spend a lot of time on the floor, or have kids, do make sure you install flooring that you’re comfortable on. Carpet seems to be the most obvious choice here, but ensure that you choose the type that isn’t too rough on the skin. Cork flooring in another option, but might be heavy on the pocket.

Budget – Budget can play a vital factor in finalising on the appropriate flooring. There are plenty of price ranges available for every type of flooring, so do your research properly. Hardwood and marble are at the top of the list where as ceramic and laminate offer a more affordable range. A wide variety is available with carpets as well, but maintenance might workout more expensive in India due to the dust.

Climate – Most places in India is blessed with warm and fairly dry weather all year round. This means that most types of flooring will suit homes. However, before making any investment, enquire which type will suit your requirements best.

Lifestyle – Every type of flooring requires a different level of care. If you lead a very busy and active lifestyle, you’ll need to install something that is effectively low maintenance. Children and pets definitely add to the equation and you’ll need something that can be easily cleaned. With this regard, ceramic or vitrified flooring are the most suitable. Easy to clean, maintain and are available in a wide variety.
