No matter what you are decorating or renovating, choosing the right flooring options for each room is vital to ensuring the longevity of your floors.

No matter what you are decorating or renovating, choosing the right flooring options for each room is vital to ensuring the longevity of your floors. No one would ever dream of putting carpet in the bathroom, but beyond that many homeowners are sure which type of floors are best suited for which rooms in the home. Use this guide to help you decide the type of floor to fit any projects large or small.

Redecorating the Bedroom, Den, Family Room or Living Room

The family room and living room are all going to be considerably used by all members of the family. For this reason, you may want to consider laminate flooring that is easy to maintain, and won't bend, bow, or fade like cheaper floors than. It's also highly scratch resistant and looks as beautiful as authentic wood floors. Because the living room is the highlight for many visitors, you may want to consider having traditional hardwood floors installed. As one of the most cherished flooring options available, real hardwood can last for decades with proper care and maintenance.

If you're on a budget, it's hard to beat the fresh look and low-cost of new carpet. Having that vital softness underfoot is a welcome touch too cold feet on a winter morning. It also helps insulate a room and reduces airborne allergens by trapping them between the carpet fibers. Plus, regular vacuuming is all it takes to keep your carpet looking new -- a must-have for any busy, on the go household.

If you're concerned about slips and falls by younger or older members of the family on your wood or laminate floors, you may want to consider putting down hallway runners or area rugs to help cushion falls and provide a no slip barrier between foot and floor.

Renovating the Kitchen or Bath

An updated kitchen or bathroom can potentially add thousands of dollars to the value of your home. And whether you're selling or not, these two rooms are likely to see their fair share of steam, humidity and moisture. That's why it's important to invest in flooring options that are highly moisture resistant. Ceramic tile in the kitchen is one of the most popular choices and is easy to clean and care for. Tile in the bath is also one of the most common flooring options. Your new tile will need to be professionally installed, so keep this in mind when considering the cost.

For even greater moisture protection, you may want to consider vinyl flooring - also called resilient flooring. It's superior moisture resistance and low cost makes it a favorite for bathrooms and basements as well as entryways. You can even put it down yourself in as little as a day with the proper tools.

By keeping these flooring options in mind during your renovation or redecorating project, you'll be able to buy the flooring that best suits any room in your home without breaking your budget.
