Pros of Hardwood Flooring

EASY MAINTENANCE HARDWOOD FLOORS ARE DURABLE AND HAVE STOOD THE TEST OF TIME. HOMES THAT ARE MORE THAN 100 YEARS OLD CAN STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL FLOORING IF THEY HAVE BEEN CARED FOR PROPERLY. THEY JUST NEED SWEEPING OR VACUUMING AND AN OCCASIONAL CLEANING WITH A WOOD FLOOR CLEANER.

VALUE
BUYERS ARE WILLING TO PAY TOP DOLLAR FOR HOMES WITH HARDWOOD FLOORS. IN ADDITION, HOMES WITH HARDWOOD FLOORS TEND TO SELL FASTER THAN HOMES WITH WALL-TO-WALL CARPETING. THINK ABOUT IT: BUILDERS CONSIDER HARDWOOD FLOORING AN UPGRADE. THEY DON’T CHARGE EXTRA FOR CARPET.

MANY STYLES AVAILABLE
HARDWOOD FLOORING WORKS WITH ALL STYLES OF DECORATING, FROM TRADITIONAL TO MODERN. IT IS AVAILABLE IN SEVERAL TYPES OF WOODS, SUCH AS OAK, CHERRY AND WALNUT, AND CAN BE SANDED AND STAINED TO SUIT THE HOME OWNER’S TASTE. WHEN YOUR STYLE CHANGES, YOU ALSO CAN CHANGE THE LOOK OF YOUR HARDWOOD FLOORS.

Cons of Hardwood Flooring

COST
WOOD FLOORS ARE A COSTLY OPTION. MATERIALS CAN RUN FROM $3 PER SQUARE FOOT FOR UNFINISHED OAK PLANKS AT A BIG-BOX RETAIL STORE, TO MORE THAN $14 A SQUARE FOOT FOR MORE EXOTIC TYPES OF WOOD. THE FLOORING MUST BE INSTALLED OVER SUB-FLOORING AND INSTALLATION IS A BIGGER JOB THAN MOST HOMEOWNERS CAN HANDLE. LABOR COSTS WILL VARY.

NEEDS REFINISHING OCCASIONALLY
IN ADDITION TO INSTALLATION, SCUFFED AND SCRATCHED FLOORS WILL NEED TO BE REFINISHED. THE SOFTER THE WOOD, THE EASIER IT WILL SCRATCH AND BLEMISH. HARDWOOD FLOORS IN HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS, ESPECIALLY WHEN THERE ARE PETS OR CHILDREN, WILL BE PRONE TO SHOWING DAMAGE. HAVING HARDWOOD FLOORS REFINISHED PROFESSIONALLY COSTS BETWEEN $2.00 AND $4.00 OR MORE PER SQUARE FOOT, DEPENDING ON THE TYPE OF FLOOR, ROOM LAYOUT, FINISH AND OTHER FACTORS, ACCORDING TO LOCAL CONTRACTORS. REFINISHING ALSO CREATES DUST FROM SANDING AND FUMES FROM THE POLYURETHANE COATING.

NOISY
HARDWOOD FLOORING CAN BE NOISY WHEN WALKING ACROSS IT, AND CAN BE A NUISANCE TO YOUR DOWNSTAIRS NEIGHBORS IF YOU LIVE IN AN APARTMENT COMPLEX. PLACING AN AREA RUG OVER THE FLOOR CAN HELP MUFFLE THE SOUND AND PROVIDES ADDED WARMTH TO THE ROOM. ADDING A RUG IS ALSO A GOOD IDEA FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN OR ADULTS WHO ARE PRONE TO FALLS, SINCE IT ACTS AS A CUSHION.

 

Carpet

All Flooring Solutions Offers All Major Brands of Carpet

ALL FLOORING SOLUTIONS HOW TO BUY CARPETING. WHEN IT COMES TO BUYING WALL-TO-WALL CARPETING, WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW CAN DEFINITELY HURT YOU. CONSIDER THAT COVERING A 300-SQ.-FT. ROOM WILL COST $650 TO $3,400. AND JUST BECAUSE YOU SPEND A LOT OF MONEY DOESN’T GUARANTEE THAT YOU’RE GETTING THE BEST CARPET FOR YOUR NEEDS.

BUYING NEW CARPETING SUCCESSFULLY INVOLVES MUCH MORE THAN RUNNING YOUR HAND ACROSS SOME SAMPLES. THE BASICS YOU NEED TO LEARN: WHAT MAKES A GOOD CARPET, WHICH PADDING IS BEST FOR YOU AND WHAT GOES INTO A QUALITY INSTALLATION.
THE SELECTION PROCESS WHEN SHOPPING, THINK FUNCTION BEFORE FORM. A LOT OF PEOPLE LOOK AT THE FIBER AS A MEASURE OF A CARPET’S DURABILITY. BUT IT’S ONLY ONE PART OF THE STORY. IT’S IMPORTANT THAT YOU TAKE ALL OF THE OTHER FACTORS INTO ACCOUNT. OTHER ELEMENTS TO CONSIDER INCLUDE STYLE AND WEIGHT. THE TRICK IS TO FIND A SAMPLE THAT MEETS YOUR NEEDS AND STYLE WHILE STILL WORKING WITHIN YOUR BUDGET.

THE TYPE OF FIBER USED DETERMINES THE BASIC PERFORMANCE AND APPEARANCE OF THE CARPET. THE FIBER CONTENT IS USUALLY LISTED ON A SPECIFICATION SHEET ON THE BACK OF THE SAMPLE. ALTHOUGH THERE ARE DOZENS OF DIFFERENT TRADE NAMES, REMEMBER THAT PRODUCTS FALL WITHIN ONE OF FIVE BASIC CATEGORIES.
WOOL IS THE LUXURY AND PERFORMANCE BENCHMARK. IT IS SOFTER THAN SYNTHETICS, IS EXCEPTIONALLY DURABLE AND OFFERS GREAT STAIN RESISTANCE. BUT AT $50 TO $100 PER SQUARE YARD, IT’S NOT CHEAP. IT ACCOUNTS FOR ONLY 3 PERCENT OF CARPET SALES.

  • NYLON IS A CLOSE SECOND TO WOOL IN TERMS OF DURABILITY AND FEEL, BUT ON AVERAGE IT COSTS A LOT LESS ($18 TO $55 PER SQUARE YARD). IT HAS EXCELLENT SOIL RESISTANCE, COLORFASTNESS AND RESILIENCE. NYLON ACCOUNTS FOR NEARLY 60 PERCENT OF CARPET SALES. SOME NEW OFFERINGS FEATURE ADDED WEAR AND STAIN RESISTANCE. OTHERS HAVE CARBON-COMPOSITE NYLON FILAMENTS WOVEN INTO THE YARN THAT ELIMINATE SHOCKS. SOME OF THESE ENHANCED NYLONS COST AS MUCH AS WOOL.
  • OLEFIN, OR POLYPROPYLENE, IS BOTH DURABLE AND WATER- AND STAIN-RESISTANT, MAKING IT A GOOD CHOICE FOR BERBERS (LOW, LOOP-PILE CARPETING) AND INDOOR/OUTDOOR CARPETING, AND IN COMMERCIAL SETTINGS. BECAUSE IT IS LESS RESILIENT THAN NYLON, IT IS BEST USED IN LOW-PILE CARPETS; OTHERWISE, IT CAN MAT OR CRUSH. IT COSTS $9 TO $30 PER SQUARE YARD.
  • POLYESTER IS NOTED FOR ITS SOFT HAND, OR TEXTURE, ESPECIALLY WHEN USED IN A LUXURIOUS THICK PILE. IT HAS GOOD COLOR RETENTION AND SOIL RESISTANCE, BUT IT’S NOT AS RESILIENT AS NYLON. IT RUNS $9 TO $40 PER SQUARE YARD.
  • ACRYLIC OFFERS THE LOOK AND FEEL OF WOOL, AT A LOWER PRICE—$10 TO $15 PER SQUARE YARD. BUT BECAUSE THE FIBER TENDS TO FUZZ AND PILL, IT’S NOT TYPICALLY FOUND IN ROOM-SIZE CARPETS. THIS MOISTURE- AND MILDEW-RESISTANT FIBER IS USUALLY FOUND IN BATHROOM RUGS.

Tile Flooring

STEP 1: DEFINING YOUR TILE FLOORING PROJECT. WHICH ROOMS IN YOUR HOME NEED TILE-THE ENTRY, FAMILY ROOM, KITCHEN, BEDROOM OR BATHROOM?  TILE HAS SOME DEFINITE ADVANTAGES OVER OTHER FLOORING OPTIONS.  IT’S DURABLE, EASY-TO-CLEAN AND HYGIENIC.  TILE FLOORING IS ALSO AFORDABLE, VERSATILE AND HEAT-RESISTANT, WHICH MAKES IT A PERFECT CHOICE FOR FIREPLACES AND KITCHEN COUNTERTOPS.  TILE FLOORS OFFER A WIDE ASSORTMENT OF STYLES- SURE TO SUIT ANY PERSONALITY AND COMPLEMENT THE DECOR OF ANY ROOM.

 STEP 2: THE PERFECT TILE FLOOR COLOR. TO BEGIN, CONSIDER THE LARGEST AREAS OF COLOR ALREADY IN YOUR HOME- WALLS, FURNITURE AND CABINETRY.  MATCHING YOUR TILE FLOOR AND WALL COLOR CAN BE A WISE CHOICE IF YOU HAVE OTHER DRAMATIC CONTRASTING FEATURES IN A ROOM SUCH AS A BRIGHTLY-COLORED SOFA OR DARK STAINED CABINETS.  IN MOST INSTANCES CONTRASTING YOUR TILE FLOORS AND WALLS (ONE LIGHT AND THE OTHER DARK) WILL CREATE THE MOST VISUAL IMPACT.  FOR A MORE SUBTLE LOOK, KEEP COLORS IN THE SAME FAMILY, FOR INSTACE A LIGHT BEIGE WALL AND A RICH BROWN FLOOR TILE.

STEP 3: WHAT IS TILE SHADE VARIATION? THE OVERALL APPEARANCE OF YOUR TILE INSTALLATION CAN DIFFER BASED ON THE AMOUNT OF SHADE VARIATION IN THE PRODUCT YOU SELECT. TILE SHADE VARIATION IS THE AMOUNT OF COLOR AND TONAL CHANGE WITHIN EACH TILE AND BETWEEN MULTIPLE TILES.  THERE ARE FOUR TILE SHADE VARIATION CLASSIFICATIONS: LOW (V1), MODERATE (V2), HIGH (V3) AND RANDOWM (V4).  A CERTAIN DEGREE FO SHADE VARIATION IS INHERENT IN ALL FIRED PRODUCTS.  WHILE SAMPLES PROVIDE ASSISTANCE IN CHOOSING YOUR TILE PRODUCT, FINAL SELECTION SHOULD BE MADE AND CONFIRMED FROM USUAL TILES AND TRIM PRIOR TO INSTALLATION.  FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS, PRIOR TO INSTALLATION LAY OUT TILE, BLENDING MULTIPLE CARTONS AND REARRANGE UNTIL THEY ARE VISUALLY APPEALING.

STEP 4: FLOOR TILE AND WALL TILE: BE SURE TO LOOK FOR TILE PRODUCTS THAT HAVE FLOOR AND WALL CONTRIBUTIONS WHEN YOU WANT TO APPLY TILE TO BOTH SURFACES AND YOU’LL FIND PRODUCTS WITH MORE AVAILABLE SIZE AND TRIM OPTIONS.

STEP 5: LARGE OR SMALL TILE? TILE IS OFFERED IN MORE SIZES THAN EVER BEFORE, FROM 20″ X 20″ TO 2″ X 2″ MOSAIC TILE.  SMALLER TILE WILL TAKE LONGER TO LAY AND GROUT.  LARGER FORMAT FLOOR TILE (18″ X 18″ OR LARGER) HAS BECOME A POPULAR TRENDSETTING LOOK, BUT WILL REQUIRE A LARGER SAW, ESPECIALLY WHEN CUTTING FROM CORNER TO CORNER FOR A DIAMOND PATTER.  IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOUR ROOM AND THE LOOK YOU ARE TRYING TO ACHIEVE.

STEP 6: CHOOSING A TILE. IT’S IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER WHICH TYPE OF TILE WILL WORK BEST FOR EACH ROOM IN YOUR HOME.  SEE BELOW FOR THE MOST COMMON TYPES.

GLAZED CERAMIC TILE. THESE PRODUCTS ARE COATED WITH GLASS-FORMING MATERIAL AND CERAMIC STAINS THAT ARE FIRED AT VERY HIGH TEMPUERATURES TO FUSE THE GLAZE TO THE CERAMIC BODY.  THE GLAZING PROCESS ALLOWS THE TILE TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK OF STONE, MARBLE, SLATE AND OTHER VISUALS.

GLAZED PORCELAIN TILE. MADE SIMILAR TO GLAZED CERAMIC WITH REGARD TO THE GLASS-FORMING MINIERALS AND CERAMIC STAINS.  THE DIFFRENCE IS THE PORCELAIN BODY , WHICH HAS <0.5% WATER ABSORPTION.  PROCELAIN BODY PRODUCTS ARE SUITABLE FOR COVERED EXTERIOR APPLICATIONS IN AREAS WITH EXPOSURE TO FREEZE/THAW CYCLES.

COLORBODY PORCELAIN TILE. THE DENSEST OF ALL TYPES.  COLORBODY PORCELAIN HAS A COLOR-THROUGH BODY AND <0.5% WATER ABSORPTION.  IT CAN WITHSTAND TEMPERATURE EXTREMES, HEAVY FOOT TRAFFIC, AND CAN BE USED IN RESIDENTIAL/ COMMERCIAL INTERIOR OR EXTERIOR APPLICATIONS.

INDUSTRY ESTABLISHED TESTING PROCEDURES RESULT IN RATING/VALUES REGARDING THE PERFORMANCE OF EACH TILE SERIES AND RECOMMENDED AREAS OF USE.  THIS ENSURES THAT YOUR TILE SELECTION MEETS YOUR PERFORMANCE EXPECTATIONS FOR IT’S INTENDED INSTALLATION AREA.

STEP 7: PICKING A TILE PATTERN. THE BEST WAY TO CUSTOMIZE THE LOOK OF YORU TILE IS TO CREATE A PATTERN.  THREE THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING A PATTERN: TILE SIZES, OVERALL SPACE ADN INSTALLATION COST.  A MULTI-SIZE PATTERN MEANS YOUR’LL NEED TO CHOOSE A PRODUCT THAT INCLUDES ALL THE SIZES NECESSARY. LARGER PATTERNS WILL REQUIRE LARGER SPACES, IF THERE ISN’T ENOUGH ROOM TO REPEAT A PATTERN FOUR TO FIVE TIMES, THEN EITHER THE PATTERN OR THE TILE USED SHOULD BE SMALLER.

STEP 8: ADDING DECORATIVE TILE. DECORATIVE TILE PROVIDES ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES AND INCLUDES BORDER, CORNER/INSERTS AND ACCENT STRIPS.

STEP 9: USING TRIM PIECES. COORDINATING TRIM PIECES ENABLE YOU TO COMPLETE YOUR INSTALLATION WITH AN UPSCALE AND PROFESSIONAL FINISH.  MOST TILE SERIES FEATURE A STANDARD SURFACE BULLNOSE, OTHERS EXPAND INTO DECORATIVE TRIMS, CONTOURED RAILS AND CAPS, AND ROUNDED CORNER PIECES.  MAKE SURE YOUR CERAMIC RETAILER SUGGESTS TRIM FOR ANY INSTALLATION THAT HAS AN EXPOSED TILE EDGE.

STEP 10: GROUT COLOR AND WIDTH. CHOOSE A SIMILAR COLOR TO MAKE YOUR GROUT JOINTS VISUALLY DISAPPEAR OR A CONTRASTING COLOR TO HAVE EACH TILE STAND OUT.  WIDER GROUT JOINTS HAVE A MORE RUSTIC LOOK, WHILE TIGHTER GROUT JOINTS FEEL MORE REFINED.  REMEMBER TO SEAL JOINTS AFTER INSTALLATION.

Molding

Crown molding is the embellishment of wood beams at the top of your walls, or you can describe that section as the base of the ceiling, to add depth to the top of your wall. It is desirable because it adds an artist.

The Different Kinds of Crown Molding: Crown molding can be found at your local hardware store for reasonable prices. It is also very easy to put up yourself, with a difficulty similar to putting up a shelf. For crown molding made from wood you have the choice between softwoods that are easy to cut to size, or hardwoods which are a little harder to cut but more luxurious and expensive. Medium-density fiberboard (also known as MDF) and high-density polyurethane foam are good substitutes for wood because they are very easy to paint. However, if you are considering one of these two substances you may prefer the foam over the MDF because it is far lighter to work with, only needs adhesive to attach rather than screws, and does not shrink from age and weather like wood is wont to do.

Get Help from the Start: The most difficult part about installing crown molding is making sure your lengths are accurate. Take very specific measurements of your walls and ask the lumber cutting department of your hardware store to make the cuts for you to be precise.  touch to your walls, making your home look more aesthetically pleasing and impressive.
