If you are planning to construct or renovate a house, we are quite sure, one question will be there in your mind that is, “what will be good for flooring? Should I install tiled floors or hardwood floors?” both have their own merits and demerits. There are many factors that you should consider when determining the right floor material for you. When you are selecting new floor at home, All Pro Carpet & Tile Care believes that homeowners should consider:
The average price of installing wood floor is at the higher end of the range, approximately $8,000 to $9,000 per 1,000 square feet. Though there are multiple types of hardwood flooring to choose from, they are quite similar with price. On opposite side of the table, talking about tile, it has many variants, so homeowners can select a type that suits both their taste and their budget.
Majority of the people love the look of hardwood floors, but some other people prefers the tile aesthetic. Especially in bathrooms, kitchens and outdoor patios. There are some people, who like the look of the hardwood but they want the advantage of tile too, for those there are wide range of tiles that have design exactly like wood.
Wood-look tile is an increasingly popular option, but many homeowner still prefer the classic tile. There is a large scale for the selection of style, shapes, color and patterns to choose from when it comes to tile flooring.
Hardwoods feels great on the feet than tile flooring, and it is warmer, which is beneficial during the winters. Nevertheless, many people combat tile floors’ coldness by installing radiant floor heating, an invisible, high-efficiency home heating system that works very well with tile floors. Through this people can enjoy the tile floors without the pain of standing on the cold surface – and can save energy in chilled weather.
Hardwood floors can be harmed by water damage, and they can be easily scratched and worn by dropped item, sliding furniture, and even shoes. Tile, on the other hand, is much tougher and more durable, although it can be chipped or cracked if a heavy item is dropped on it.
The best thing about it is waterproof, which makes it ideal for every room where spills or flood damage can happen. The question of durability also affects the construction process; you can install tile floors at any time during the construction, whereas hardwood floors installation near the end of the work to avoid damage.
