Flooring Options

We like to say “there’s a flavor for every flooring taste.” What this means is that there’s more flooring options available today than there’s ever been before. For example, the sheer variety of hardwood types and species available to the average homeowner is astounding. Feel free to browse our hardwood page to get a feel for the options we have. Don’t like hardwood? Our tile and stone offerings are extremely popular, especially for kitchens, entryways, and outdoor spaces. Laminate flooring is one of our emerging flooring types, offering an insane amount of variety for a reasonable price. Vinyl and carpet flooring draw interest from homeowners who desire a softer surface.

Basement Flooring Options

Speaking of vinyl and carpet flooring, those are two of our most frequently purchased flooring options for basements. That’s because vinyl and carpet can be affordable options for homeowners who don’t want to spend a lot of money on basement floors that may not get a lot of foot traffic. We also recommend laminate flooring for basements because of its strength and aforementioned variety.

Kitchen Flooring Options

Unlike basements, kitchens are some of the most visited rooms in the house. Because of that fact, we recommend tile, laminate, or hardwood flooring. Tile has one of the lowest water absorption rates among all flooring options. Laminate is one of the strongest flooring surfaces available. And hardwood is not only strong, but can be a seamless transition to adjoining rooms.
