      Types of flooring

      Flooring can make a huge difference in the aesthetic of your home and improve its overall value. To choose the right flooring for your home, start by evaluating each room and determining what type of flooring will best fit the space.

      hardwood floor

      Hardwood

      Hardwood is a classic flooring choice that can bring warmth and natural beauty into a space. It’s a highly customizable flooring option with many species, stains and features to choose from. The number of hardwood floor features available can be overwhelming, so here are some popular customizations to consider:

      • Wood species: There’s a variety of tree species used to make hardwood flooring, including oak, walnut, ash and maple. Exotic woods like Brazilian cherry or teakwood, mahogany and tigerwood may be harder to access and more expensive.
      • Plank size: Plank sizes used to be fairly straightforward, with 2- to 3-inch widths, but current flooring trends lean toward wider planks (anywhere from 4 to 6 inches, depending on the style and size of the space).
      • Grain pattern: The grain of your floor is determined by the sawing method used to cut it, as well as the species. There are four different sawing methods used to slice hardwood floor planks: plain sawn, quarter sawn, rift sawn and live sawn. Each method results in a different grain pattern, so compare the styles and confirm that your flooring company offers the method you want before committing.

      If you’re interested in hardwood flooring but want a more affordable option, consider installing engineered hardwood. It has the same look and finish as true hardwood floors but typically costs less for both materials and installation. While it’s generally cheaper, engineered flooring does have a shorter lifespan than true hardwood flooring, which may make true hardwood a better option if you’re looking to invest in flooring that will stand the test of time.

      Best uses

      Living rooms, entryways, bedrooms, dining rooms and offices are all great places to install hardwood floors. Spills might deter you from installing hardwood floors in your kitchen. There’s also the risk of nicking your floor by dropping pots and pans or other heavy objects, but hardwood is still a popular option if you’re willing to handle the upkeep. Exotic hardwood flooring is popular among upscale buyers with large budgets who want a statement-style, enduring flooring option.

      Cost

      $3 to $6 per square foot

      Pros

      • Classic, long-lasting
      • Large variety
      • Easy to customize
      • Simple maintenance requirements

      Cons

      • True hardwood is pricey
      • Engineered hardwood has a shorter lifespan
      • Requires maintenance

      Hardwood flooring FAQ

      Do engineered wood floors scratch easily?
      Engineered wood floors have a top layer of solid wood, so they are as susceptible to scratches, markings, dents, scrapes and everyday wear and tear as solid wood floors.
      Are there different grades of hardwood flooring?
      Yes, there are different grades of hardwood flooring, including:
      • Clear hardwood flooring is the highest grade of hardwood flooring. It tends to be the most uniform in size and appearance.
      • Select and better hardwood flooring has uniform color and few visible imperfections.
      • #1 Common hardwood floor has a higher chance of showing imperfections and varies in board color and length.
      • #2 Common hardwood floor has notable color variation and imperfections like knots and pinholes.
      • Cabin-style hardwood has a rough-hewn appearance with checking and unfilled knots and wormholes.
      • Shorts have the highest concentration of color variation, imperfections and other visual characteristics.
      How long do engineered wood floors last?
      On average, engineered wood floors last around 30 years. Thinner engineered wood floors with a top layer 1 to 2 millimeters thick last 20 to 30 years, while thicker floors with a top layer thicker than 6 millimeters can withstand use for up to 40 years.
      How much does it cost to install 1,000 square feet of hardwood floors?
      The average cost of a hardwood floor installation is approximately $5 to $8 per square foot, so a 1,000-square-foot installation costs anywhere between $5,000 and $8,000. The cost can vary depending on the type of hardwood floor you’re installing.
      What’s a good wear layer for engineered flooring?
      The top ply of your engineered flooring, also called a wear layer, should be 3 to 4 millimeters thick. Many homeowners sand and refinish the wear layer to remove scratches or dents in the flooring, and a thicker wear layer gives you more material to work with. 
      laminate floor

      Laminate

      Plastic laminate can be laid as a floating floor — no nails or glue required — for quick, easy installation. Each tongue-and-groove plank has a dense fiberboard core topped with resilient, scratch-resistant plastic laminate. It comes in many different faux finishes and colors that resemble natural wood and stone.

      While laminate is definitely a more affordable alternative to hardwood or tile floors, it doesn’t have the long lifespan of other floor types because it’s prone to chipping. If you’re looking for a flooring option that can stand foot traffic from visitors, kids and pets for a solid 20 years, laminate flooring is definitely worth considering.

      Best uses

      Laminate flooring is a great option for homes with pets or kids — it’s durable, easy to clean and inexpensive. It’s susceptible to moisture damage, though, so you may want to avoid installing it in moisture-prone areas, like laundry rooms and kitchens, unless you invest in a waterproof or water-resistant option.

      Cost

      $1 to $5 per square foot

      Pros

      • Inexpensive
      • Works well in many spaces
      • Simple installation, a good DIY project

      Cons

      • Not as durable as natural flooring
      • Prone to chipping
      • Some varieties don’t handle moisture well

      Laminate flooring FAQ

      How long does laminate flooring last?
      Laminate flooring has a varied lifespan. It lasts somewhere between 10 to 30 years, depending on its quality and how well it’s cared for.
      Is 12-mm laminate better than 8-mm?
      12-millimeter and 8-millimeter laminates have their own advantages and disadvantages. Decide which is best for you based on:
      • Price: 8-millimeter laminate is more affordable.
      • Durability: 12-millimeter laminate tends to be more durable.
      • Feel: 12-millimeter laminate has a foot feel similar to hardwood floors.
      • Environmental impact: The manufacture of 12-millimeter laminate has more of an impact on the environment per square foot.
      Is there such a thing as waterproof laminate flooring?
      Not all laminate flooring is waterproof, but there are waterproof and water-resistant styles available. If you’re planning to install laminate flooring in a room where moisture is common, like a laundry room or kitchen, make sure you choose a waterproof or water-resistant style to avoid swelling or premature damage.
      tile floor

      Tile

      Tile comes in many forms and styles, from natural stone options like marble and limestone to decorative styles like cement or glass tiles. Each type has benefits and common uses, and some tiles are better suited for certain spaces. Some types of tile and their popular uses include:

      • Cement tile is a popular modern flooring choice due in part to its repeated appearances on home renovation shows like “Fixer Upper” and “Home Town.” Typically, ceramic tiles feature art or designs with Mission- or Morroccan-style influences, making them a great choice for small spaces like laundry rooms or entryways.
      • Ceramic tile is an affordable alternative to porcelain tile. However, ceramic tile isn’t as durable as porcelain. It’s also more porous, so installing it in a moisture-prone area like an outdoor living area isn’t advisable.
      • Glass tile has a light-reflecting effect that can add airiness to a space, making it a great option for bathroom floors. It comes in an array of colors and patterns, including classic subway styles and intricate mosaic designs.
      • Natural stone tiles are luxurious and fit a variety of spaces, from bathrooms to kitchens. Because they’re made of an all-natural material, they tend to be more expensive than other types of tile. Popular options include marble, limestone and slate.
      • Porcelain tile is dense and less porous, so it’s popular for bathroom floors. Many porcelain floor tiles are manufactured to mimic the look of natural stone and wood, so it’s a durable alternative to flooring types that may not be suitable for high-moisture areas.

      Best uses

      With so many materials and styles to choose from, tile is a great flooring option for almost every room and space. For buyers who want to customize their flooring, tile offers variety and flexibility other flooring types can’t surpass.

      Cost

      $3 to $6 per square foot

      Pros

      • Hard and durable flooring
      • Withstands wear and tear well
      • Some varieties are less prone to stains

      Cons

      • Some varieties require regular resealing
      • Some tile types are prone to staining

      Tile FAQ

      How much does it cost to install 1,000 square feet of tile floors?
      Installation costs for tile range from $5 to $15 a square foot. If you’re installing a tile that only costs $2 per square foot, you’ll likely spend more on labor and installation than the tile itself. Installation will take up a huge chunk of your budget, so make sure you factor it in when deciding how much to spend on other parts of your renovation. Overall, the installation cost for tile varies depending on the company you’re working with and how difficult the tile is to lay.
      Is tile flooring expensive?
      Tile flooring prices start around $1 per square foot and go up depending on the type and quality of tile. Overall, we consider it an affordable flooring solution, especially if you go with a ceramic or porcelain style.
      Does tile flooring increase home value?
      Yes, updating your flooring can increase your home’s value. Replacing your existing flooring with a modern, simple tile is a great renovation to take on if you’re trying to sell your home.
      How can I tell if my tile is ceramic or porcelain?
      Porcelain tiles are denser and therefore heavier than ceramic tiles, so you can often tell which type of tile it is just by holding it. If you can’t test the weight of the tile, take a look at its edges. Porcelain tiles will have the same consistency and finish throughout, while ceramic tiles tend to have a glazed finish.
      carpet floor

      Carpeting

      Carpet is one of the most popular flooring materials. Fabric twist is a better indicator of carpeting quality than weight — uncut carpet piles are good for high-traffic areas and resist stains well. Some retailers also sell carpeting that can be used outdoors.

      Best uses

      Carpet is a great flooring choice for bedrooms, closets and living rooms. Unlike hardwood, carpet absorbs sound. The installation is typically fast, and you might be able to get a good deal through a wholesale or discount carpet company because it’s such a popular flooring choice.

      Cost

      $2 to $15 per square foot

      Pros

      • Brings warmth to a space
      • Absorbs noise
      • Simple and quick installation process

      Cons

      • Stains easily
      • Traps allergens and dirt

      Carpet FAQ

      What is the most durable carpet?
      Nylon is the most durable indoor carpet material, which means it withstands general use and cleaning better than other options on the market. However, nylon is also susceptible to staining. Be sure to find out if your nylon carpet includes a stain-resistant treatment before buying.
      How can you tell the quality of carpet?
      Use the following factors to determine carpet quality:
      • Face weight: The weight of the carpet pile per square yard, measured in ounces.
      • Density: How close the fibers are stitched into the carpet backing.
      • Type of fiber: The natural or synthetic fiber used in the carpet’s construction.
      • Fiber twist: The number of times the fiber strands are twisted together.
      • Style: Common styles include Berber, frieze, saxony and cut-and-loop.
      How much does it cost to carpet a 10x12 room?
      Carpeting a room that’s 10 by 12 feet costs around $240 to $480, based on the national average of $2 to $4 per square foot.
      How often should you replace carpet?
      Carpet can last anywhere from five to 15 years, depending on how well you care for it and the overall quality.
      vinyl floor

      Vinyl flooring

      Vinyl flooring is waterproof and comes in a variety of looks and styles, including wood and tile lookalikes. There are even scratch-resistant varieties, making vinyl a great flooring choice for heavy-traffic rooms. It has a long life span — up to 25 years, if properly cared for. Vinyl flooring can be purchased in a variety of forms, including:

      • Sheet
      • Plank
      • Tile

      Best uses

      Because it’s waterproof and easy to clean, vinyl flooring is great for laundry rooms, kitchens, game rooms, living rooms and other areas with a lot of foot traffic.

      Cost

      $1 to $5 per square foot

      Pros

      • Low-maintenance
      • Wood and tile lookalikes
      • Waterproof

      Cons

      • Sensitive to sunlight
      • Manmade, not very environmentally friendly

      Vinyl flooring FAQ

      Do you need underlay for vinyl flooring?
      It depends on the current flooring you have. Most of the time it’s a good idea to have an underlayment installed beneath your vinyl flooring; this helps prevent moisture from gathering over time.
      What thickness of vinyl flooring is best?
      Vinyl flooring comes in a wide variety of sizes, generally ranging from 2 to 8 millimeters. You should determine the thickness of your flooring based on how tall you want your floors to be and the amount of money you want to spend. In general, the thicker your vinyl floors are, the more expensive they’ll be.
      Do you have to glue vinyl flooring?
      Thin vinyl planks (around 2 millimeters) have to be glued, but thicker planks (4 millimeters) can have a click-lock system that doesn’t require gluing.
      How long does vinyl flooring last?
      Vinyl flooring has a long life span and can last up to 25 years when properly cared for.

      How to choose flooring

      1. Determine your budget

      While some flooring and carpet companies specialize in discount products, others position themselves in the upscale market. When determining your budget, be sure to understand all pricing considerations.

      • Seasonal sales: Smart shoppers can take advantage of seasonal sales to purchase materials for less.
      • Measurements: Be aware that carpet was traditionally priced by the square yard (there are nine square feet in one square yard), but in recent years many retailers are advertising square-foot prices. When shopping, make sure all products are priced with the same square-area calculation.
      • Resale value: Solid hardwood floors, if maintained in good condition, typically add more to the resale value of a home than any other type of flooring. Natural stone tiles are also highly desirable to homebuyers.
      • Energy bills: Most flooring has little insulation value, so it won’t dramatically affect your energy savings. Carpeting has an R-Value of about 1.0, but when installed over dense polyurethane-foam padding it can triple the insulating value to about 3.0. Stone and tile feel cool underfoot in summer and will hold and radiate heat in winter if installed over a radiant-heat system.

      2. Take home flooring samples

      Flooring samples let you see the color, thickness, construction and quality of the flooring before purchasing it. Samples are especially important for customers who shop for flooring online.

      • Price: Flooring samples are free from many companies, while others charge a nominal fee — usually less than $5. Of course, you can view and handle flooring samples at flooring stores and home improvement centers, and some retailers will let you take samples home if you promise to return them.
      • Analysis: You should consider texture, style and color when comparing samples; you can also test them to see how easily they scratch, dent and stain.
      • Availability: Most retailers have flooring samples on hand for you to take home, while manufacturers and online sellers will ship samples to you.

      3. Compare flooring material options

      Some manufacturers make just one or two types of flooring, while others offer a broader range of products. And although there are retailers who focus on one product category — tile, for example — most stores sell and install virtually every type of flooring.

      • Hardwoods: You can sand and refinish solid hardwood floors so they don't have to be replaced. Engineered hardwoods are easier to install and come in more wood species and colors.
      • Ceramic, porcelain and stone tile: These materials are extremely durable and, when properly installed, waterproof. Tile is most popular in bathrooms, kitchens and foyers.
      • Carpet: Carpeting offers soundproofing, insulation, affordability and a soft, cozy feel for bare feet. It also goes down quickly with a minimal amount of mess and disruption to your home.

      4. Consider custom flooring

      Homeowners increasingly have the option to design their own flooring, but expect to pay more for this privilege.

      • Design floors yourself: Online tools and in-store design help can assist in custom-designing the style, color and pattern of your new floor. Just be sure to check the flooring samples before ordering.
      • Have a company design your floors: Several dealers customize flooring using photos, sketches and artwork provided by homeowners.
      • Best materials for customizing: Carpet tiles and ceramic and porcelain tile are ideal for customization. This is done by placing the tile in unique designs, patterns and colors.

      5. Compare flooring installation options

      Several companies offer free flooring installation as part of a deal, while others subcontract the job to third parties. Never assume a seller will take care of the flooring installation; get it in writing and ask about the following:

      • Insurance: Installers should be insured and bonded to show homeowners they meet minimum standards and have coverage in the case of a faulty installation or worker injury. Being bonded offers protection if an installer fails to finish the job.
      • Fees: Be sure to ask about any additional charges for delivery, moving of furniture or removal and disposal of old flooring.
      • Warranty: Many installations come with warranties. As with all warranties, these provide varying levels of coverage for various lengths of time. For example, if a homeowner makes an alteration to the flooring after installation or improperly cleans it, they risk voiding their warranty.

      6. Decide if you should finance

      Dealers frequently offer financing through specialty credit cards. Others provide financing through loans — either their own or through local banks.

      • Interest-free offers: Interest-free offers are a good idea if you know you can pay off the bill before the term expires; otherwise, expect hefty interest charges.
      • Interest rates: Local flooring and carpet companies often charge higher interest rates than national companies, so read the terms of the loan carefully.
      • Requirements: A down payment from 1% to 10% and a minimum purchase amount are common prerequisites for financing through a loan; store credit cards tend to require minimum purchase amounts but no down payments.

      Flooring FAQ

      What is the most durable type of flooring?
      Most flooring types are designed to have a long life span while withstanding wear and tear. Depending on the look and style you want, certain flooring may fit your aesthetic more than others. If you’re looking for a durable floor that can handle moisture — like in the laundry room or kitchen — porcelain tile or vinyl flooring might be better than hardwood.
      What type of flooring adds the most value to a home?
      Overall, hardwood flooring adds the most value to a home. It’s a classic flooring choice that can easily be sanded, stained or altered to fit various styles.
      What’s the most low-maintenance type of flooring?
      Vinyl tile is a very low-maintenance flooring option. It’s waterproof and very resilient, making it easy to care for. Plus, it has a relatively long lifespan.
      What’s the best flooring for the money?
      Though it’s expensive, hardwood flooring is a classic choice that can improve your home’s value. If you’re trying to sell your home or increase its overall worth, hardwood flooring is definitely worth considering.

        Bella Cera Flooring

        Based in San Francisco, Bella Cera is a brand of flooring owned by several large flooring distributors. Its mission is to "add beauty to the world, without compromising its health."

        • Eco-friendly: Bella Cera hardwood floors use eco-friendly stains that have met several certification standards, and California has some of the strictest environmental policy measures in the nation. Bella Cera also uses an ultraviolet drying process rather than a formaldehyde process.
        • Hardwood: The company's hardwood manufacturer focuses on individualistic floor production, using old-world processes such as artisans to carve the wood. Bella Cera offers several hardwood species of flooring, including acacia, cherry, walnut, maple and birch. The company sells both solid-hardwood and engineered-hardwood flooring.
        • Offerings: Some Bella Cera retailers also carry carpet, laminate, tile and bamboo. Contact information for these manufacturers is available at local retail stores.
        • Retail partners: Bella Cera flooring is found in retail locations across the United States. Each retailer sets pricing for flooring and installation, so smart shoppers can often find Bella Cera flooring at lower prices at some stores than others.
        • Finishes: Bella Cera partnered with Valspar to develop finishes that are super-clear and that allow nuances in color and texture to shine through.
