We do the majority of our action in the kitchen while we are upright so it is clever to shop for flooring that is unproblematic on the legs. It may sound ridiculous, but while you are in the warehouse try taking off your shoes and test out the flooring in your socks or undressed feet. Do the soles of your legs find the flooring you are trying to be pleasant and snug or too unyielding to march on?
First, you need to know that there are a lot of things to consider before you lay down a certain type of material on your floor. Obviously, different areas need different types of flooring. For example, the basement needs a flooring type that could withstand moisture. So therefore, ceramic tile flooring is ideal for basements. So that is exactly what we are going to talk about right now.
If you still insist on carpeting, please consider not using carpet padding. Not only are you paying more for the purchase and installation of this padding, but you also are shortening the life of the carpet. So there is more material being used, more chemicals, shorter carpet life, and it is harder to clean, since the padding is like a sponge, absorbing and collecting dirt and stains and odors that are almost impossible to reach without using even harsher chemicals.
