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.

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.

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.

It's all about the attractiveness and the functionality of the flooring type. Concrete is usually used for garage floors but one of the best methods to make it look better is to apply epoxy coatings. These are applied by using a brush or roller to apply it over to concrete. You could also use large rubber mats that would protect your floor from different oils and grime that could damage it.
