Function Always choose a flooring that is more convenient for the space you are decorating. A carpet isn't ideal in a kitchen due to the likeliness of spillages and it would prove almost impossible to keep clean, a carpet in the bedroom however can add comfort and warmth. Hard floors are more practical in bathrooms and kitchens and many porches, as it is easier to wipe after dirty shoes.

Stone and tiles are tough and durable but will lose the shine eventually through being worn.

Installation and Warranties When choosing a floor it is also important to consider how it will be fitted. Wooden floors and tiling are the most difficult to do so and will need a professional to make it look their best, which can also be costly.
