Top 8 Durable Floorings

Looking to install durable flooring in your home or office space? We are here to help you do just that! We know you are not only looking for durability in flooring but attractive design. Below are eight floorings that are highly durable and attractive!

1. Concrete. Yes, we said concrete. Concrete is very durable flooring. To make concrete attractive, you can typically request it to be stained to order in just about any color! It will not only look great but it is easy to repair and great for basement areas!

2. Natural Stone. Travertine and a range of natural stones are just as durable as concrete and look stunning in any scenery! However, be careful with marble. Marble can wear down faster than you may expect!

3. Resilient Flooring-Sheet. Sheet vinyl is 100% resistant to moisture and has one seam. This makes it great for moist areas such as kitchens and bathrooms.

4. Resilient Flooring-Tile. This is a very close second to sheet vinyl because of multiplicity of seams. Seams in vinyl tile matter only if you have long standing water. This is rare.

5. Ceramic and Porcelain tile. These two tiles are very durable against scratches and spills! Great for kitchen flooring! Just be sure not to drop a jar of pickles on these types of tiles. The tiles will most likely crack under this circumstance or similar circumstances.

6. Laminate Flooring. Laminate flooring is becoming very durable. Manufacturers have improved the wear layer and base of laminate flooring. Now, you can even buy waterproof laminate flooring!
