One of the things that make a house a home is its flooring. The importance of the right flooring cannot be emphasized enough. Your flooring affects your home’s value. Since the floor takes up so much real estate, it significantly impacts the aesthetics of your home.
The right flooring can make an area look more inviting, cozier, larger or smaller, and more luxurious. Not only does good flooring affect the look of your home, it can have an impact on the way you and your loved ones feel.
Here are some ways that flooring can improve your quality of life.
Around 24 million people in the U.S. have asthma. Asthma and allergies usually go hand-in-hand. Around 60 percent of adults and 90 percent of children with asthma have allergies.
The most common allergens in an average home are pollen, dust mites, and pet dander.
Dust mites reside and breed in furniture, bedding, carpet, and other places where dead skin cells are most likely to accumulate. A dust mite allergy can trigger asthma and even cause eczema to flare.
To help allergy-proof your home, install floorings such as Hardwood or Laminate flooring. These types of flooring do not trap dust and other allergens making it easier to remove them which helps reduce allergen levels and pollen exposure in your home.
Ease of Maintenance
Flooring maintenance is one of the most dreaded household chores, but with good reason. Maintaining a floor involves a great deal of hard work. Many homeowners spend their entire weekends working on their flooring.
Opt for a low-maintenance flooring option such as ceramic tile, waterproof vinyl tiles or planks. These durable flooring options are designed to last for years. They are highly resistant to dents and scratches and are very easy to care for
With a low maintenance flooring option, you will spend less time on maintenance and more quality time with the people who matter.
