A Guide To Flooring Systems

Flooring systems include any permanent covering of floors and the process of covering them. Flooring is both functional and decorative because of the wide variety of flooring and modalities in which it is applied.

Main Types Of Flooring

There are a lot of types of flooring depending on what you are looking for and what kind of room or space you want to floor. The main type of flooring and the most common one is tile flooring. There are also stone flooring, wood or timber flooring, marble chips or terrazzo flooring, mosaic flooring, PVC flooring, and glass flooring.

Tile Flooring

Tile flooring is the most common type of flooring applied nowadays in the construction and renovation industry. For the tiles, the most used are ceramic or porcelain, which give not only durability, stain and water resistance, but also a nice and stylish feel to your spaces, as they come in different colours and textures. There is also stone flooring, which is used mostly for outer spaces as it has a higher resistance to very high or low temperatures. Style-wise, it creates a very sharp look, which for exterior green spaces creates a beautiful contrast.

Wood Flooring

It is an ancient kind of flooring that will never be out-of-date. It is practical and stylish, and it keeps the spaces much warmer than tile flooring. If properly maintained, wood flooring can last for years and still look as good as new.  There are also different types of wood flooring, for example, hardwood flooring, which can be used in all the spaces of your house except those spaces that have high levels of moisture.  These include the bathroom and the kitchen. Secondly, there is engineered wood flooring, which is a mix of plywood and solid wood that can be installed even in kitchens. Lastly, there is laminate flooring, which is a synthetic kind of flooring that does not have the feel of natural wood but is very practical and cost effective. It cannot be used in kitchens or bathrooms.

PVC Or Vinyl Flooring

PVC flooring is a synthetic kind of flooring that has a smooth, shiny surface and a rough underlayer, which helps in gripping to the existent floors. It is a convenient kind of flooring for spaces that are very prone to getting wet, such as kitchens and laundry rooms.
