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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
