Hardwood is more expensive than other types of materials because they are organic, can decay if left unattended and need preserving with special care. If treated well, hard wood can last a very long time and provide quality support underfoot for all the family. Hardwood planked tongue and groove is, without doubt, one of the best flooring materials and provides warmth, durability and a beautifully grained surface suitable for all room types. ore than this, natural timbers mature and improve as they age and are easily maintained and refurbished.

However grout is able to be a bit of a pest when attempting to polish these tiles although not including grout, they are painless to maintain. Also ceramic tiling can be a little solid on the legs so if you suffer from some leg or feet issues you might want to steer clear of this option. Using ceramic tiling can furthermore be a little chilly especially in the winter months so make sure you have on a few thick socks while running on it.

A traditional approach is the most common route people choose. Commonly this means hardwood, or a product designed to look like hardwood. This option is generally considered elegant and classic. Hardwood flooring suits those that like antiques and older homes. It is also good if you like your home to look like a "traditional" home. For some homes, linoleum can also be considered traditional because it was popular in the early to mid twentieth century. Finding flooring ideas does not have to be a mind bending experience. The installation process should be the most difficult process. Most people find that so many choices in flooring is quite overwhelming. The trick to finding the flooring that is best for you is to do some research and figure out what is most important to you: price, environmental friendliness, texture, etc. After answering these questions you will find narrowing down the choices much easier. From there you just have to figure out what is going to go on top of your new floors once they are installed!

However, in many expensive houses, where beautiful custom designed flooring such as tile, marble and parquet is installed, the flooring material is an integral part of the original architectural design, frequently requiring that the color choice of these expensive materials be made early in the design process. There may be some room for flexibility; for example, elaborate mosaic floors are used in limited areas and wood floorings are in natural colors that blend with any color scheme. Natural wood floorings even from the lightest to the darkest can blend with most color schemes and because of their tone become almost neutral with a strong color scheme. Some may even consider this a negative feature of wood flooring, since flooring can be considered such a strong feature of a room, combining the appearance of strength with the ability to blend into the background.

You may not realize it but an Oriental rug can actually add a little something to the room and it is not overly intrusive either. They go well with light colored walls, though they could also work equally as well with red and other warm colored walls.
