Apartments in New York City come in all shapes and sizes – and with all kinds of flooring too. A floor’s appearance, durability, and its ability to insulate your space contributes to your apartment’s appeal and comfort.
It is important to consider different aspects of flooring installation – such as the type of flooring, strict housing boards’ regulations, and the room where you want to install the flooring. Some flooring types will suit your bedroom more than it would suit your kitchen, and vice versa. For example, for wet and damp surfaces that experience frequent spills – experts advise installing porcelain tiles rather than hardwood.
Moreover, flooring renovation costs can vary based on the type of flooring you want to install. Flooring is a specialist’s task, and using the help of one would further enhance your chances of installing the perfect match for your apartment – both aesthetically and structurally.
There are endless options available when it comes to flooring variety. Some of the most common flooring options available in New York City include the following.
While not as warm as carpets, hardwoods are still warmer than other options while maintaining an edge over all other flooring types for elegance and appeal.
However, hardwood flooring is prone to squeaking and cracking if done improperly. Also, hardwood floors are prone to absorbing water on the floor; so frequent spilling or water overflow can cause problems later on.
Wood laminate is increasingly being used as a cost-effective alternative for hardwood. Not only does it resemble hardwood, it also resists stains and scratches better than hardwood.
Made from melamine resin, modern laminate floors are detailed to look exactly like hardwood. Some older laminates are not slip-resistant so make sure to check their surface coat beforehand.
Ceramic tiles possess an expansive variety of designs, sizes, and finish quality. Kitchens and bathrooms make great use of ceramic and porcelain tiles, as they are well-equipped to deal with frequent spills and water contact.
However, they are not just limited to kitchens and bathrooms and look just as good in the dining and bedrooms. Tiles also cool down fairly better than other flooring types which can be good in the summer, but you might want to put down some rugs with the arrival of winter.
