What's the Activity?

Mar 12, 2008
When you are shopping for your floor you should remember a few different things. Floors may come in all different shapes and all different sizes; they may be cheap or they may be very, very expensive. But one of the biggest considerations you need to make when you are trying to decide which type of floor it is that you are shopping for is what do you want out of the floor? Do you want a floor which will allow you to slide across in your socks like a real rock and roller? Do you want a floor which creeks and gives so you can hear your children come in late every night? Or do you want a floor which will be both inexpensive and easy to maintain? These are all relevant questions to ask you have answered before you make any investment in a new floor purchase.

What's the Activity?

A good question to ask yourself before you make any final decisions on your flooring is who is going to be using this floor? How much activity is going to be going on this floor? How durable does it need to be? If you have five children under the age of 13 years old who are running around your floor all the time, spilling things, making messes, tripping and falling, and all the other things that children do then this should be factor into your decision making process heavily. However if you are a retired couple and you want a floor which will add beauty and grace to your home and won't be getting a lot of foot traffic then you can afford to get a different level of flooring in your home.

How Expensive?

Then of course the second question you need to ask yourself is how much do you want to spend on this floor? This is the $64,000 question as literally people are able to make or break their floor remodeling experience by making smart decisions in this category. People who have a great deal of need for a durable and long lasting experience should be able to invest the money in a decent quality floor. However if you don't plan on being where you are for very long or if you don't feel like you're going to use the room in which the flooring is in very much and you want to just try to get by on the cheap that you can do that.

You should be aware though that cheap flooring is cheap insulation, in essence. You could get a really good insulation underneath the flooring but even if you have that good insulation there is still moisture and dampness and cold and infestations which can permeate the surface of a cheap floor and really make your whole experience a negative one. For that reason you want to be sure that if you get some cheap flooring you at least are aware of the consequences of that.

Allowing yourself the ability to do nice things in your home is one of the great joys of being an adult; putting in some decent flooring into your whole home will allow your home to appreciate in value and will allow the beauty to shine through.
