What Flooring Option is Right for You?

Flooring can have a significant impact on the interior design of your home. In addition to bringing charm to your interiors, the right type of flooring can help improve indoor air quality and provide a surface where you and your family can make cherished memories. It can also absorb sound, helping create a calm and relaxing environment.

A vital factor to consider when choosing a flooring type is durability. Whether you plan to install new flooring or replace existing flooring, you will want to choose a durable flooring option that can stand the test of time.

To help you make an informed decision, we have put together a list of some of the most durable flooring types we’ve installed in Sonoma that we personally recommend!


Hardwood is the gold standard of flooring types. It is famed for its old-world charm and its ability to be a statement piece. Hardwood comes from slow-growing, broad-leaved trees, and hence, it is naturally more durable than softwood. With proper care and maintenance, hardwood can last a lifetime.

Some other benefits of hardwood flooring include ease of maintenance and increased home value. Hardwood has no grout lines, fibers, and embossing that can trap allergens such as dust and dander, making it the ideal choice for people with seasonal allergies. Some popular types of hardwood include oak, mahogany, and maple. The right hardwood flooring type can transform a room from ordinary into exceptional.


Carpet provides a soft, warm surface underfoot and also has excellent sound-absorbing properties. Carpets manufactured these days can stand up to foot traffic and are more spill-resistant than many popular flooring types.

Thousands of homeowners meet slip, trip, and fall accidents at home every year. Anti-slip carpets can help reduce the risk of slips, trips, and falls at home.

The pile, backing, adhesives, and other components of low-VOC carpets emit fewer VOCs than their traditional counterparts and can help homeowners who choose them to reduce their carbon footprint.


Laminate is made by pressing compressed wood at high temperatures. Laminate is one of the most cost-effective flooring types and is the preferred choice of homeowners on a budget. The uppermost layer of laminate is scratch and stain resistant. Laminate flooring can last 15-25 years or even more, depending on how it is installed and maintained.

Laminate flooring features a simple lock-together system and is very easy to install. Many floorboards feature unique embossing to mimic the appearance and texture of wood. Another benefit of laminate is that it is very easy to maintain.

Resilient Flooring

Resilient flooring is known for its excellent resistance to scratches, scuff marks, stains, and indentations. It does not chip, warp, or lose its color like many other popular flooring types. With proper care, some resilient materials can last upwards of 100 years.
