Timeless Flooring Options
31st Jan 2023
If it's time to upgrade the flooring in your home or business, finding the right flooring can seem impossible. How will the flooring look in a year? How will it look in five years? While there's no shortage of trendy flooring styles on the market and being showcased online, sometimes choosing a more timeless look is the way to go. If you're searching for flooring that will stand the test of time and look as great in five years as it does today, Georgia Carpet is here to help with a handful of timeless options to inspire you.
Hardwood flooring is the ultimate option when you're looking for something timeless, long-lasting and durable. Hardwood flooring is a true classic and when maintained properly, the flooring can last for 25 years or more without needing replacement. While hardwood flooring is more costly than other types of flooring on the market, it also has a longer life and a warmth that simply can't be replicated. At Georgia Carpet, we recommend choosing a classic material like oak, maple or cherry with a natural or warm finish. Avoid grey colors and distressing, which are both very trendy and will make your floors look dated when styles change. Hardwood has some limitations and isn't great for wet areas. If you're planning to install the flooring in an area that could see moisture, we recommend going with a waterproof engineered hardwood to get the look of real with, but with better moisture resistance.
For soft flooring, carpet is the obvious choice. Choose a neutral color and avoid patterns to ensure you get the most life out of your carpet. Solid neutrals look great with any decor and are easily updated by changing the furniture or accents in a room. When shopping for carpet, choose an artificial material like polyester or nylon to get the most life and the least maintenance. Stain-resistant carpet like Anderson Tuftex carpet is a great choice for families with kids or pets. While you're shopping for carpet, don't forget to order a new carpet pad, which will help increase the life of your carpet and improve the softness of the flooring.
Get the look of wood or stone with less maintenance and better resistance to moisture by choosing luxury vinyl planks or tiles. While the material itself hasn't been around as long as other flooring types, the durable, family-friendly flooring comes in a wide range of style that mimic hardwood and natural stone, offering a timeless appearance coupled with modern convenience. Cleaning luxury vinyl plank flooring is extremely easy and the range of styles coupled with the affordability of the product making it a great alternative to real hardwood. As with traditional hardwood, avoid grey vinyl flooring and opt for a more natural color.
