Is your Albuquerque dining room in need of a complete flooring upgrade? With so many options to choose from, the decision-making process can be a little daunting! Nonetheless, it’s an exciting process to find the perfect flooring that best reflects your personality and interior design goals. Plus, new floors always add value to your home. Our design experts at the Poulin Design Center are here to share some of the most popular dining room flooring options below!
Hardwood flooring offers many benefits starting with its timeless classic beauty. Whether you opt for maple, oak, or pine, your floors can maintain their like-new finish up to a decade! Then simply refinish for another decade of classic beauty. In fact, hardwoods can last up to 50 years or longer when properly cared for. They are also incredibly versatile, and will match with various interior design styles in your dining room.
Stylish Ceramic Tile
Perhaps you love the classic appearance of tile flooring in your main living area. Ceramic tiling can be ordered in an endless variety of colors and sizes, ready to match your decor. If you love the look of wood but want more water resistance, ceramic tile is also available in wood-look aesthetics! Other benefits of tile are that it is easy to clean and never loses its luster. We recommend opting for a single style throughout your living area and using an area rug to highlight your dining area.
Maybe you want the look of a wood floor but don’t have the budget for hardwoods. You might be surprised to find that many laminate floors can be installed in just a couple days while costing a fraction of hardwood or tile. They can last for up to 20 years and are water resistant. We love laminate in homes with pets or children for stylish durability.
Another easy-to-care-for option is vinyl tile floors. They are a stain, scratch, and spill resistant flooring solution for busy homes. Plus, they are easy to install over existing subfloors with minimal preparation. Like ceramic, you can find them in a wide range of colors, sizes, and designs able to reflect the look of wood, stone, and even bamboo!
Whatever your choice, your dining room flooring will look fabulous. Ask the experts at the Poulin Design Center for assistance in selecting the best choice for your Albuquerque home.
