Types of Flooring

Choosing new flooring can be quite a difficult task as there are so many different options out there. The aim of this guide is to outline the main types of flooring available and their advantages and disadvantages.

One of the most popular types of flooring, especially in bathrooms and kitchens, is vinyl. Vinyl is incredibly cheap to buy and simple to install. In addition, it is easy to clean and available in a range of styles such vinyl sheet and vinyl tiles. However, due to the soft nature of this material it is not as durable as other types.
Hardwood flooring is made from a single piece of timber and is extremely durable. In addition, this type of flooring is easy to look after. However, the most notable drawback of this type of flooring is that it is the most expensive to install and can be damaged by moisture.

Engineered wood is sometimes called composite wood or laminate flooring and features an attractive hardwood veneer atop of several layers of wood. This type of flooring is more resistant to moisture than hardwood and can be installed quickly. However, this type of flooring is not as durable as real hardwood.
