A home’s floor coverings set the stage for its interior design. A homeowner doesn’t have to drain his or her bank account to get an attractive looking surface to walk on. Five of the top home flooring options for individuals who are on a budget are laminate flooring, carpeting, tile, hardwood planks, and stained concrete. At D & R Flooring, we have styles, finishes and colors to work with every decorating scheme.
1) Today’s Laminates
Laminate flooring has come a long way over the years. Today’s products look like actual wood, are extremely easy to maintain, and are affordably priced. This flooring material comes in a variety of wood grains, hues and grades. It can be the perfect surface on its own, or covered with area rugs.
Wall-to-wall carpet has been a popular flooring choice for years, and for several good reasons. It is economical, soft to walk on, soundproof, and is warm underfoot on chilly mornings. There are many styles and colors to choose from, and the fibers are virtually stain-proof.
Tile is another classic choice that is durable, attractive, and long lasting. Tiles range from shiny ceramic styles to those with a duller sheen such as Saltillo tile. This flooring product comes in many colors to suit a homeowner’s taste, and prices are reasonable, especially when durability is considered.
4) Hardwood Planks
Today’s hardwood is more easily installed and less costly than the oak or pine planks of yesteryear. Although real lumber is more costly than the alternative of laminate, it can still work for a tight budget. Some wood is snapped into place while other types are nailed down.
5) Stained Concrete
Another fairly frugal flooring choice is stained concrete, especially if a home already has a cement slab foundation. With this option, a mixture of cement, sand, and pigment would be mixed to the correct consistency, and then spread into a smooth layer.
If you are ready to improve the appearance of your home, but want to do it without going broke, D & R Flooring can install laminate flooring or one of the other beautiful and reasonably priced options. Contact us at 972-625-4100 or 940-440-0100 for more information.
