There are so many beautiful options out there for flooring right now! You can literally find just about any type or style to fit in any budget. I want to share my top picks, and what homes they would work best in!
This is probably my absolute favorite look. Such a timeless, classic option. I have loved it every since I saw it on The Lilypad Cottage Blog… she used it throughout her new home and it is stunning! Click here to see it in her new lake house!
Laminate is a good budget friendly option that comes in so many different style. I’m loving this hand scraped look! Laminate is affordable and durable; however, not really the best choice for your wet areas of your home (kitchens, bathrooms, laundry room.) If there is a water leak or spill, it can absorb water and buckle pretty easily!
Porcelain wood tile is another wonderful option. It’s beautiful and extremely durable and of course waterproof. This can be applied throughout the house (wet or dry areas) and creates a seamless look! One thing to keep in mind is that this tile is typically colder and very hard (almost like concrete) and the labor cost is expensive due to the laying process and grout!
Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is becoming more and more popular. Don’t think old school vinyl sheets that used to be applied over original hardwoods back in the day, this is totally different! These planks come in a variety of styles, hand scraped, white washed, etc. They are extremely durable and waterproof, and easy to replace if one gets messed up! Perfect for kiddos and dogs! Also much more affordable and warmer/softer than porcelain tile while still providing durability that hardwoods are lacking!
Let me know your favorites in the comments?! What do y’all think of the LVT?
