Every home reaches a point when it no longer looks as charming as before. Yours will too. One day, you’ll wake up and start to notice that the walls no longer look as bright as before. The bathroom tiles are no longer sparkling, the kitchen no longer looks magical, the ceiling already has water spots, and most of all, the floors already have that used and abused look to them. This is when you realize that maybe it’s time to give your home an upgrade. You won’t just need a bathroom and kitchen remodel for your Coeur d’Alene, ID home, you will need to remodel your entire home.

Upon arriving on a monumental decision such as this, you will need help in choosing materials for everything. But let’s start with your floors. Your floors will definitely be the most used parts of your home so you need to make sure that you choose a material that’s not just durable but beautiful as well. You can use a single type of flooring for the whole house (except the bathroom, of course) or you can choose different ones for each room. It’s entirely up to you.

Now, here are some materials you can choose from:

  • Timber
    Timber is an excellent material to go for if you’re going for aesthetic appeal and durability since every piece has a different look and it can be very durable. The downside to this is that it is prone to scratches, especially when rearranging furniture.
  • Laminate
    If you can’t afford the real thing, then buy something that looks like it at a cheaper price. Laminate flooring is comprised of a compressed fibreboard plank covered with the image of tiles, timber, or stone. This is beneficial in a lot of ways because you get the aesthetic of a natural-looking floor without the risk of scratching and a lot easier to install.
  • Tile (natural stone, porcelain, or ceramic)
    There are some people who use tile flooring for rooms aside from their bathrooms. But let’s talk about your bathroom for a second. Tiles are best suited for wet environments. It’s only natural to choose them as your flooring for your bathroom remodel. In Coeur d’Alene, ID you will see a lot of bathroom designs featuring many types of tiles. Some of these include natural stone tiles which are more expensive than its porcelain and ceramic counterparts but are also more aesthetically pleasing than the others.

There are many more types of flooring materials that you can choose from such as carpets, cement concrete, marble, and more.
