How To Select The Right Flooring or Tile for Your Space

Subway Tile

Hi, I’m Lauren, Brunswick Tile and Flooring’s Tile and Flooring Design Specialist and I’d like to share how to select the right flooring or tile products for your space.

This is an important decision that can have a significant impact on how much you love the space after installation, how the space functions for your family, and ultimately the value you bring to your home.

Here are several key factors I recommend clients consider when making a selection.

  • Budget: Determine how much you’re willing to spend on flooring or tiles. Options are available at various price points, so establishing a budget will help narrow down your choices.
  • Location and Function: Consider the location where the flooring or tiles will be installed. Different areas of your home may necessitate different types of materials due to traffic, moisture, and wear. For example, bathrooms and kitchens may need more water-resistant options.
  • Durability: Think about the expected wear and tear in the space. High-traffic areas will require more durable materials. Consider factors like resistance to scratches and stains.
  • Style: Flooring and tile choices play a significant role in the overall design and style of a room. Consider the color, pattern, texture, and overall style that will best suit your space.
  • Maintenance: Some materials require more maintenance than others. Think about how much time and effort you’re willing to invest in cleaning and upkeep. For example, carpets may need more maintenance than luxury vinyl plank.
  • Comfort: Consider the comfort of the material, especially for areas where people will be standing for extended periods. Carpet can provide more cushion and warmth compared to harder surfaces like tile or hardwood.
  • Dander and Dirt: If you or your family members have allergies, you may want to reduce dander and dirt by choosing flooring that is easy to clean, such as hard surfaces rather than carpets.
  • Our Brunswick County Humidity: Our area’s humidity can affect your choice. You may want to avoid materials that can warp or absorb moisture.
  • Longevity: Think about how long you intend to stay in the property. If it’s a long-term investment, you might want to select high-quality materials that will last for many years.
  • Installation: Consider the ease of installation and whether you’ll be doing it yourself or hiring a professional. Some materials are more DIY-friendly than others.
  • Resale Value: If you’re planning to sell your property in the future, think about the flooring and tile options that will appeal to a broad range of potential buyers.

Remember that each space and project is unique, so the importance of these factors will vary. If you’d like personalized advice and recommendations on your product selections, call 910.754.5500 and schedule a free consultation. I’d love to help you bring your project to life!
