Wall to wall carpet can be installed over any other flooring. You have so many choices to choose from in carpeting texture, softness and color. Stain resistant carpet is a great idea for families with small children just learning to walk. If you hate stepping onto a cold hard floor in the morning carpet is perfect for you.
Let us start with laminate flooring. There are many different types and most have a wood effect finish but there are ones that mimic ceramic, slate or terracotta and even metals such as copper and brushed aluminium. This is usually installed on a thin piece of foam without nails or glue, which makes installation fairly easy but can create a noisy floor. Laminate floor coverings basically have the following layers:core, laminate and protective foil. The flooring is made from lengths of high density fibreboard (HDF) and they tend to be a locking or tongue and groove versions.
With advancements and innovations in home design as well as expanding creativity and style, tile flooring ideas now go beyond the bathroom and the kitchen. In the more traditional days, tiles were only used in rooms with a lot of moisture, traffic, rough and tumble. Now, you can use tiles to beautify your living room, make your bedroom more dramatic and so on. With tiles having so many different textures, colors and designs, the possibilities are also endless for tile flooring ideas.
