Carpet is very popular in most areas of the home. Wall to wall carpeting allows you to have pretty much whatever kind of floor you want-basic tile or sheeting is fine because it will be covered with the carpeting. Colors, textures and softness are among the choices you have in carpet. Stain resistant carpet is a great idea for families with small children just learning to walk. Carpet is especially good for those who despise cold floors in the morning.
Let us start with laminate flooring. There are many different types and most have a wood effect finish but there are ones that mimic ceramic, slate or terracotta and even metals such as copper and brushed aluminium. This is usually installed on a thin piece of foam without nails or glue, which makes installation fairly easy but can create a noisy floor. Laminate floor coverings basically have the following layers:core, laminate and protective foil. The flooring is made from lengths of high density fibreboard (HDF) and they tend to be a locking or tongue and groove versions.
First, you have porcelain tiles. These tiles are made by firing at high temperatures. They are also very dense and moisture resistant. You can purchase porcelain in a variety of shades and colors. Porcelain tiles are the most expensive though but with them you have tile flooring ideas that can mimic stone and other materials.
