Different Flooring Pros and Cons
At Academy Floor, you can find many different flooring options and products that help you with your projects! Along with different products and great brands, we also share with you different types of floors such as hardwood, bamboo floors, and more. In this blog post, we will share with you the pros and cons of each floor, to better help you get an idea of what you are looking for!
Pros Vs. Cons
Let us first cover bamboo floors. These types of floors are unique looking and have great benefits. For one, they have a more striped look (regular wood is more subtle) which gives your home more attentive details. A great reason why people love bamboo floors throughout their homes is because they do not scratch as much as other flooring types. Wood is sensitive, but this type of wood is much stronger and more resistant to scratches, cracks, and dents. You do not need to worry about placing heavy items or dragging items along the floor. Lastly, bamboo floors are simple to maintain. A simple damp mop once per week will have them looking shiny and sleek.
Aside from all the great qualities bamboo floors offer to properties, a con that some people struggle with is finding the proper decor to go with it. Not any types of furniture will match it, and it may take some digging and researching to find what does.
Engineered wood is also a very popular type of flooring. Aside from its stunning look that would fit beautifully in your home, it actually reduces moisture. Other types of floors can be much more susceptible to moisture which can cause problems in the long run. With engineered wood, you don’t need to worry. Another great benefit is that this flooring offers extremely low maintenance work for property owners. The only con that many people can agree with is that they are a little more pricey than other types of wood floors.
Lastly, there are the famous hardwood floors. The great thing about wood is that it acts as an insulator so it keeps the floor temperature comfortable for you and your family members when walking through the home. Also, their pure beauty and elegance makes them look great with any type of decor that will last you for a long time. A con about hardwood floors is that they are susceptible to moisture, so you need to be more careful with kitchen spills, using too much floor cleaner, etc.
