Do You Want Unfinished or Prefinished Flooring?

To find the perfect flooring for your home, you need to take a number of characteristics into consideration. Is it the right color, does it have the right grain pattern, and can it hold up to wear and tear? There are so many options, it’s understandable if you have a hard time choosing! Before you get into the specifics, though, you should decide if you want unfinished or prefinished flooring. Both can give your home amazing floors, but each does have its benefits. Here’s how they stack up!


Selecting the Right Floor for Every Room

The value of a hardwood floor is well known, but sometimes it just doesn’t stand up to the challenges of every application. Despite the growing shift toward more hardwood surfaces being installed in new construction and in renovation projects, sometimes carpet and tile floors are still preferred for comfort and practicality reasons. Old habits die hard, but with the burgeoning array of flooring options available today, there is absolutely no reason that the beautiful look of wood can’t be incorporated throughout the entire house. The diverse products available from Lumber Liquidators give you the opportunity to choose the perfect style and resilience for every single room!

You’ve probably studied up on hardwood flooring, and maybe even bamboo and tile, but have you given any consideration to cork? This lesser-known flooring option fills a special niche, and perhaps it’s the solution you’ve been searching for. Here’s why homeowners love to incorporate cork flooring into their new builds, whether they use it in key locations or as their primary choice for the whole house.


Waterproof Flooring for the Whole House

With all the extra stresses of today’s world, why install flooring that’ll heap more on? Exceptionally durable, waterproof flooring helps reduce damage concerns and is easy to clean to help contribute to a healthier household, so it’s well worth your consideration! It can even provide the luxurious looks of high-end materials for significantly less cost. Here’s why outfitting a home with waterproof flooring could be the best unexpected investment of your build!


Unique Wood Look Tile Flooring Ideas

Avella Ultra Smoked Whiskey Oak Porcelain Tile

Coveted by many, natural hardwood floors will always be a selling point, but they aren’t ideal for some homeowners and in certain situations. If you’re looking for a gorgeous alternative that you’ll love just as much, wood look tile flooring is the answer. Made of ceramic or porcelain, this tile deceives the eye with authentic wood tones and textures. See why wood look tile flooring could be the perfectly practical and aesthetically pleasing solution you didn’t know you needed!


Muted Flooring Options for Understated Style

When common flooring choices just don’t do it for you and bold ones are too loud for your liking, perhaps you need something muted. A true neutral, gray flooring has gained many fans in recent years, especially among contemporary designers. With a light and charmingly aged appearance, floors that seem faded by the elements are popular with many homeowners. Whether you want your floor to be strikingly or gently undersaturated, here’s what you should know about muted flooring.


Why Homeowners Love High-Contrast Flooring

High-contrast flooring options offer amazing looks, of course, but they also have practical benefits that make them attractive to homeowners. Here’s why you’ll love to banish banality with hardwood that offers a range of hues between and on each board!
