About Me

creating a kid-friendly basement play space

I wanted to finish my basement in a way that was bright, fun, and easy to keep clean. My plans were to create a space that the kids could do whatever they want in and not cause any permanent damage. I have done all that I can to protect the walls, but was still left with the difficult choice of what to use to cover the concrete floors. Did I want carpeting that would be more comfortable for them to sit on or did I want hardwood floors that would be easier to clean? I went back and forth for a few weeks and finally talked with a flooring professional. So, what did we do? My blog will tell you!


Affordable Flooring Options To Help You Remodel Your Kitchen

If you are looking to remodel your kitchen, but you are on a strict budget, you know that every single decision you make in the process is an important one. One wrong choice could completely derail your budget and make it difficult to complete your project. The kitchen flooring that you choose is an important decision in your kitchen remodeling process. The right flooring can bring your entire room design together and make everything complete. But the wrong flooring, whether due to style or budget, can destroy your project entirely. Get to know some of the best affordable flooring options for your kitchen remodeling project. Then, you can be sure you make the right choice for your new kitchen. 

Laminate Flooring

When it comes to choosing a flooring option for your kitchen remodeling project that fits in a strict budget, you couldn't do a whole lot better than laminate flooring. Laminate flooring is a synthetic flooring material that is fused through lamination (hence the name).

The great thing about laminate flooring is that it comes in a wide variety of color and style choices. Basically, it would be impossible not to find what you are looking for. From tile to a wood flooring finish, laminate flooring has it all.  

In addition to the style benefits of laminate flooring, it is also scratch-resistant, moisture-resistant, and can stand the test of time, even if it is in heavily trafficked areas. All of these benefits make laminate flooring an ideal option when you are remodeling on a budget as it can also save you money in the long-run. 

Vinyl Flooring

Another affordable flooring option for your kitchen is vinyl. Vinyl flooring is also a synthetic material. Like laminate flooring, it comes in a wide variety of color and style options. Vinyl planks, tiles, and sheet vinyl (one continuous piece of vinyl) are all options you can choose from depending on your style and installation needs. 

Vinyl flooring is durable and can withstand the heavy foot traffic that your kitchen might endure. It is also a flooring option that is very comfortable on the feet which can be nice when you are standing at the stove for long periods of time. However, unlike laminate flooring, it is not as scratch-resistant. Gauging and scratching are issues can occur. 

Knowing these options to help you get your new kitchen flooring while sticking to your remodeling budget, you can be sure that you make the best possible decision for your project. Then, you can continue your project and get the new kitchen you have been hoping for as soon as possible. Contact a company, like Brothers  Floor Covering, for more help.
