Gone are the days when people could only choose between two types of flooring – wood or cement. Thanks to modern technology, homeowners can now choose from a wide-variety of floor designs that make their homes quite cozy and inviting. Flooring designs can enhance your home's appeal and even add a dramatic effect to it. Some floors look fabulous because they are designed to have a 3-dimensional effect.

There are many floor types that people can choose from. First are hardwood floors, which are considered as a timeless option. Most people opting for hardwood floors claim that it adds natural beauty and durability to their home. Most homes do look classy when their floors are made from maple, beech, cherry, or oak wood. Another type of flooring is bamboo which is a relatively new type of flooring. Bamboo floors are environment-friendly alternatives to wooden floors. Bamboo is also elegant and comes in honey brown or light tan colors when carbonized.

If you prefer glossy floors then linoleum is a good option. Linoleum is made from linseed oil which gives the material its glossy shine. When linseed is combined with various hues, it gives out a wonderful vibrant-rich spectrum of colors. Unlike wood or bamboo, linoleum is manufactured in rolls and can be installed either by pinning or gluing to an existing floor. Linoleum also comes in different thicknesses.

The most water-resistant floor type is ceramic flooring. Ceramic floor, which is available at Franklin tile flooring stores, can be installed as floor tiles or counter tops in the kitchen. Unglazed ceramic tiles are commonly used in the garage and outside surfaces because they are slip-resistant. You can also choose to have ceramic floors which are matte, glazed or embossed for added style.

Carpets and rugs are floor coverings that are considered for both aesthetic and protective purposes. Although installation and maintenance may be high, carpets and rugs do have substantial benefits when it comes to regulating foot traffic, decreasing noise and controlling temperature inside the house. Carpets can keep the air warm when cold weather abounds. You need not be daunted with installing carpets in your home as flooring Indianapolis professionals can do the job adequately.

Last is the marble floor which gives a clean and elegant appearance to any surface. Marble is manufactured from metamorphic rocks that contain calcium carbonate. Marble floors are ideal for homeowners who want their homes to have a rustic appeal. Visit your Franklin flooring stores to find out more about marble floors.
