FLOORING SOLUTIONS FOR DIFFERENT ACCOMMODATIONS
Here are some popular flooring choices in residential house, service apartment, hotel and other accommodation related business for considerations:
Pros: It is a beautiful, warm, long-lasting flooring that goes with any décor. Solid wood flooring can be refinished multiple times.
Cons: Hardwood flooring is susceptible to moisture — it is not for bathrooms, laundry rooms and basements. It requires constant maintenance to retain its looks.
Engineered Wood Flooring
Pros: The laminate construction of engineered wood flooring provides good stability. The top veneer is real wood and so has all of wood’s natural warmth and beauty.
Cons: The real wood surface of engineered wood flooring may scratch and dent, and it cannot be refinished more than once.
Pros: Sturdy laminate construction resists warping; tough plastic wear layer shrugs off scuffs and scratches; can mimic almost any other type of flooring (wood, ceramic tile); can be installed over some existing floorings.
Cons: Super-hard surface feels artificial; can be slippery when wet; can’t be refinished.
Pros: Tough vinyl flooring is impervious to water and its resilient construction feels good underfoot. It’s relatively inexpensive. Vinyl plank flooring can mimic real wood and tile.
Cons: Vinyl is not as natural as wood and stone due to the repeated pattern.
Ceramic Tile Flooring
Pros: Ceramic tile flooring comes in an enormous array of colors and styles — it is a designer’s favorite medium. Glazed ceramic tile flooring is durable, impervious to moisture and resists stains and scratches.
Cons: The hardness and coldness of ceramic tile underfoot isn’t to everyone’s liking. Grout lines require constant maintenance. Plus, mind your step carefully when wet.
