One of the final choices you will make when building your home is the flooring for each room. Cole Val Construction works to build custom homes with multiple flooring options that work for a variety of families. Here is our ultimate guide for flooring options in 2023.
As homes evolve and families change, the flooring options you need may change. Choosing durable flooring will protect your home and keep you cozy and comfortable while showing off your personality.
1- Hardwood Or Reclaimed Wood
Reclaimed wood is one of the most popular flooring options for homeowners in 2023. Hardwood or any type of real wood flooring helps add value to your home while making it more durable. If your budget allows, hardwood can be tailored to fit your home with different wood choices and stain colors.
When you want the hardwood look without the price tag, laminate is the next best option. Laminate is just as pretty and durable but will save you some money for the rest of your home. Laminate also comes in many options to mimic wood and the unique banding that comes from cutting down trees is perfect for kitchens and dining areas.
When you are designing a modern home, a more fitting floor option is poured concrete. Concrete can be left more natural and rough or can be polished for a more modern look. Depending on where you are building or remodeling, weight may be a factor, so do your research on if your space can handle the concrete. Lightweight concrete also is an option for upstairs rooms.
4- Timeless Marble
Flooring options can get spendy when you are putting them in the majority of your home. Marble flooring is getting popular in modern homes and is a classy design choice for those that can afford it. Marble is timeless and comes in very neutral colors so it will last on your floor through multiple owners.
Marble makes the list of flooring options because it elevates the feel of your space while adding texture and pattern to your home. It may seem like more work to take care of marble flooring but it is fairly durable for many homes.
5- Decorative Tile
For smaller areas of your home like the bathroom, laundry room, or office a decorative tile is a unique option to change the vibes from room to room. Using tile in these rooms makes cleaning a lot easier and can improve the feeling in utility rooms like bathrooms and laundry.
Decorative tile can also be placed in strategic places in other rooms with more plain surrounding tile. Create a mosaic in your dining room or add decorative tile just in the entryway. Decorative tile can range from anything with a printed design to just colored tiles arranged in a specific pattern.
6- Unique Carpet Options
Putting carpet in your home does not have to just be the traditional installation. Carpet panels or removable rugs can be a great option to include some softer texture in your home without the cost or frustration of carpet cleaning.
Carpet has evolved from just broadloom carpets and can even be used in outdoor spaces because it is durable. Adding high plush carpets in specific areas is one of the top flooring options for luxury homes.
7- Waterproof Vinyl
Another popular option for outdoor and indoor spaces is waterproof vinyl. Because this material is more man-made, it is more likely to withstand moisture and dirt which makes it great for entryways, mudrooms, and outdoor kitchens.
Vinyl is a great flooring choice for those that like the look of stone or wood but don’t want the maintenance that they require. Vinyl is easier to clean and is one of the cheaper flooring options that still look luxurious.
