Best Flooring Type for Each Room

The Best Flooring Type for Each Room of Your Home

  • Posted February 26, 2018

When you’re updating your home, or moving in for the first time, you want to make sure each room makes you feel happy and welcomed. The flooring of a home helps tell the story of each individual room. Different textures, colors, etc. can turn a simple home into one that stands out from the crowd.

When choosing flooring for some of the most used rooms in your home like the laundry room, closets, and home gyms, it’s important to find flooring that not only fits the design, but is practical for the space as well.

Flooring for Your Laundry Room

Flooring for Your Laundry Room

Laundry room flooring ideas start with something that is resistant to water. There is not only a lot of moisture in the laundry room, but, occasionally, you can have issues with washers overflowing, laundry sinks overflowing and more. You want a floor that can withstand a little moisture and can be easily cleaned.

Flooring for Your Closet

Flooring for Your Closet

Closet flooring may be an afterthought, but it’s actually a decision you should take seriously. The right flooring is especially important in a walk-in closet, since you will probably spend time standing on bare feet in your closet.

A good closet floor should look good and be easy to maintain. Carpet adds warmth, while wood and vinyl are easier to maintain. Tile is an option as long as you have a good area rug strategy (at least for those in colder climates).

Flooring for Your Gym/Exercise Room

Flooring for Your Gym

When designing a home gym, it’s wise to start from the ground up and start with your home gym flooring. Whether you are going to install weight machines, or just a few dumbbells and a stability ball, your choice of flooring is important. A cushioned surface will protect the floor beneath, prevent slipping while working out and help protect your body from injuries. Don’t forget these important features either.

According to the experts, rubber flooring is probably the only option when it comes to the best flooring for an exercise room.

For someone who performs only floor exercises or yoga, then vinyl, luxury vinyl tile, hardwood or laminate could work.
