The spokesman for Ambient floors, said: “Our homes have different spaces, choosing the right floor for a particular space should be a process that involves your personal taste with a careful thought of how practical it would be.” He also said, among the many factors that determine the choice of floor you want to use, your budget, the amount of traffic that your floor will experience, and your general lifestyle, should be put into consideration when choosing the flooring of your home

The following tips will help you to decide on the type of floor to use whether you are renovating or building a new home.

The Overall Cost of Flooring

The first thing that should be considered is the cost of the floor. There are different flooring materials such as hardwood flooring, laminate flooring, bamboo flooring, linoleum flooring, cork flooring, tiles, vinyl flooring and concrete flooring. All these flooring materials have different qualities, with some offering cheaper options that the other, and others have low maintenance. Ambient experts advised that speaking with a building contractor on the type of floor for your home will be of great help. It should also be noted that flooring is often priced per square foot/metre and this can add up quickly, so all these are to be considered as well.

The Location

There are different places in the home, and each area has different desirable flooring qualities, for example, the entry section of the home should have a floor that can withstand harsh weather conditions and as well possess a wow factor, here, the desirable flooring materials are tiles, wood or slate. While bedroom floors should be comfortable for the barefoot, and bathroom flooring should be able to resist water.

Your Family Lifestyle

Though every other factor in choosing a floor is important, but the way your family lives supersede every other factor. If you have a family with less traffic in your home, you should consider carpet or rugs, however, if on the other hand, your home has heavy traffic, you should be looking at ceramic tiles, wood flooring or vinyl.
