Posted by creatingyourspace under Hardwood / Laminate, Tile, Vinyl

Have you ever been curious about your flooring options, but honestly, do not know where to start? As a first-time homeowner, things can seem overwhelming and daunting. We understand that there are a lot of products out there and you want to choose the right one. To help you in search, we created a simple guide with four popular flooring choices, explained. We hope that this helps you in your selection process!

Your Flooring Needs, Explained:


  • We will begin by starting with the ever-so-coveted Hardwood flooring. Hardwood comes in two options: original hardwood (100% solid) and engineered hardwood (top layer is hardwood with solid backing). Both hardwood options have a seamlessly beautiful look, and they are a stunning addition in any space.
  • Original hardwood floors are typically best in rooms that do not produce a lot of humidity or moisture. That is where engineered hardwood takes the cake. Engineered wood has made it possible to add hardwood into areas that you never imagined possible. You can now have it in basements, bathrooms, and laundry rooms.
  • Keep in mind that hardwood is not the most durable flooring choice. Consumers often buy it for its beauty and craftsmanship, rather than its durability. Certain features can help protect your hardwood like hardness and the finishes’ protection level. But with all flooring, you want to be careful not the scratch or dent the flooring.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring.

  • This flooring is more durable than typical hardwood floors; therefore, it would work well in active homes. It is resistant to moisture and everyday wear and tear. Luxury Vinyl Flooring can be installed in moisture and humidity rooms (bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements), quite like engineered wood.
  • Luxury Vinyl Flooring has the look of stone or wood with ease of cleaning and durability. These floors are 100% waterproof to prevent swelling or buckling. This can be the perfect flooring option for families who need a little wiggle room. Plus, with a wide selection of styles, colors, and textures, you can meet any of your flooring needs with this one product.

Engineered Tile.

  • Engineered tile is made up of 70% limestone and 30% other durable materials. Engineered tile is an alternative solution to your traditional ceramic, porcelain or natural stone tile. Homeowners love engineered tile for its long-lasting characteristics as well as being warm and soft to the touch.
  • This type of flooring works well in high-moisture areas, and it even can be a great backsplash to your shower or kitchen wall. This flooring has extreme durability for high traffic areas, accidents, drops, and dirt. In fact, the grout is even stained resistant making it extremely user-friendly.


  • Laminate is a budget-friendly option for homeowners wanting the look of wood or stone. Plus, this flooring is easy to install and works in any room of your home.
  • This flooring has a durability feature helping it to withstand daily wear and tear. It even comes in a wide variety of colors, styles, textures, and looks.
