How to Choose Flooring

Tips From Top Industry Professionals


Every aspect of a home plays an important role in your comfort. You want your home to reflect your personal style, as well as meet the needs of your daily routine. Choosing the right flooring is a huge part of that.

So, how does one choose the right flooring? Should floors be lighter or darker than the walls? Should every room have the same flooring? How often do you want to clean it? Read about the different types of flooring and find the answers to these questions below.

Once you know how to choose flooring for your home, Footprints Floors is here to provide professional installation. Contact Footprints Floors today for a free estimate!

Types of Home Flooring

There are many different kinds of flooring to reflect every kind of style. Choosing flooring for your home - or even a particular room - depends on a number of lifestyle and environmental factors. Here is a brief overview of five different kinds of flooring:

Solid Hardwood


Hardwood is a classic for a reason. Adding hardwood flooring to your home can add to your home value, potentially increasing the resale price. It’s hypoallergenic and easy to clean. If you want to change the color at any point, hardwood can be sanded and refinished - something Footprints Floors can take care of for you.

Hardwood floors come in a variety of colors and finishes for every style, and offer different levels of durability depending on where they’re located in the home (and whether or not you have, say, toddlers or pets running around). Hardwood floors can be glued directly to concrete and have some insulation properties that may help lower energy bills over time.

Laminate


This material is budget-friendly, easy to clean, stain and scratch-resistant, and super durable. It can be installed over most existing floors if you want to change up the look of your home without having to rip out old flooring. This material is a great option for sunny rooms because it resists fading from UV light.

Engineered Hardwood


If you live in a place with high humidity or greatly varying temperatures throughout the year but love the look of solid hardwood, consider engineered hardwood instead. Engineered hardwood expands and contracts less than solid hardwood, meaning it can even be used in a basement and with radiant heat. It’s available in a variety of colors and finishes, and it costs less than traditional solid hardwood.

Ceramic, Porcelain and Stone Tile


Tile is waterproof so it's the favorite for use in kitchens, bathrooms and basements. Tile is low maintenance and can increase your home’s value. From the material to the look, tile provides tons of options for style, color and textures - even tile that looks like wood if you like the look of hardwood but want something different. It can even be installed outdoors on a patio, or in direct sunlight, and it’s easy to repair.

Luxury Vinyl Plank or Tile


Vinyl is making a comeback. It comes in a variety of colors, patterns and textures; it’s durable, attractive and affordable. Vinyl is a great option for homes with lots of pets or kids because of its durability, and it’s also a quieter option than ceramic or hardwood floors (no click-click-click of heels or dog toenails). Vinyl can be installed over most floors, so if you want a change you don’t need to remove existing flooring. All vinyl is water-resistant and some of it is even waterproof, making it a great option for bathrooms and kitchens. It’s easy to clean and stain resistant.

If you’re someone who loves to cook big meals, vinyl is more shock-absorbent than other flooring, making it good for standing for long periods (or accidentally dropping dishes. It happens).

The Right Flooring For You


When you’re wondering what flooring to choose, there’s always the big question: Should you use the same flooring throughout your home? The answer? You can if you want to. However, some rooms require different flooring based on moisture content. For example, even if you love the look of hardwood, it’s probably not the best choice for your bathroom.

You should keep the look of your flooring consistent in one continuous space, but feel free to change it up at naturally existing barriers like walls or doors. If you feel strongly about having the same look throughout your home with your floors, picking something like laminate or vinyl that works in every room is a great option.

As for colors, darker floors next to lighter walls can help make a room feel more spacious. However, if you have low ceilings, a floor that is lighter than the walls can create an illusion of height. In the end, it’s up to your personal preference, and what you think will look best with already existing decor.

Now that you know more about different kinds of flooring, it's also time to consider your lifestyle. How often do you need to (or want to) clean? Do you have young children or pets that make messes?

What Our Customers Say

Very pleased with Footprints Floors. We had our oak floors refinished by Dan Satchel’s crew. Johnny was great, the work was done on time and looks beautiful. Strongly recommend this business and crew to anyone who is considering work on hardwood floors.
Le'Ann Key 05/25/24 — google
Dan and his team did a wonderful job at our house. The wood floors were in desperate need of help due to previous damage and mistreatment. We decided on a satin finish and they came out great. The team was very efficient, got the project done in a timely manner, and were very communicative throughout the process. 100% recommend.
Sarah L. 05/12/24 — google
Dan (his son Conner and the lead guy Jonny) did an amazing job with our project. We hired them to get rid of the carpet on our stairs and install hardwood to match our floors. The work was exceptional and the team was very friendly and communicative. We would recommend them to anyone with a flooring project!
Natalie Schneider 05/10/24 — google
After speaking with several contractors Footprint Flooring was the way to go. Not only was Dan the most knowledgeable and experienced, but also reasonably priced. He was very kind to fit us into his schedule before family were coming into town. The on site crew, Abednego and Felipe, make a great team. Both worked long and hard. They are very skilled at what they do. So impressed with Footprint from start to finish. Floors look AMAZING!

Dan, Connor and crew did great job. I am very pleased with my new floors.
Peg Panariso 03/18/24 — google
Our dog had destroyed right below the banister on our floors and Dan and Luiz were able to take our spare wood pieces and make it look like the rest of the flooring. We were not ready to put down an entire entire new floor so we are so grateful to have a temporary fix that looks 100% amazing. thank you for getting us in so quickly and for making our home whole again.
Sarah Fisher 02/9/24 — google
Dan from Footprints Floors did an outstanding job repairing, sanding, staining, and finishing our 30+ year old hardwood floors. After decades of use and some damage from pets over the years, it was time to get rid of that yellowed stain on our white oak floors. Damn did a great job reviewing the work with us and we really liked that they let us see 4 different stain samples on our floor before zeroing in on the one we liked. If we went with our first pick from the brochure, we would have regretted it. This was a major step in the process that led to our happiness with the job, not to mention the equality of work was great!
Dave Gustafson 02/8/24 — google
Our floors are BEAUTIFUL!! Dan was great to work with, and Abednego (his lead guy on our project), had a great attention to detail and making the floors look incredible! Then they installed new baseboards which was the "icing on the cake". I highly recommend Dan with Footprints Floors!!

Marsha Kromer 05/30/23 — google
Dan and his crew did an excellent job on refinishing our floors. The floors turned out great and I believe greatly contributed to the sale of our home. Dan and Johnny were both very nice to work with and completed the job in the set budget and timeline that we were told from the beginning. We would definitely recommend Footprints Floors.
Allie Gahan 03/31/23 — google
Dan and his entire footprints crew have been amazing from the start. Communication is always very quick and easy and setting up our flooring, even with delays in our funding was painless. We were able to start the exact day that we wanted. My husband and I also were constantly saying how hard the installers were working to get things done timely. Everything was done with great skill as well. Our floors look amazing and were done within timeframe given to us to start with! Highly recommend and will be using for any future flooring needs.
Cherokee Hammond 02/28/23 — google
Dan at Footprints was great and came out to bid the job fast! Luiz installed the floors within the same week and they look amazing! Highly recommend this company and will be using again in the future!
Patrick Harris 10/7/22 — google
Used Dan with footprint floors to finish our floor project installing laminate on our stairs. His crew did an amazing and fast job with a complicated install. We will be using his services in the future for any floor jobs we need done. He got us a quote and got the job done very quickly.
Eli Levenson 08/22/22 — google
I had a great experience with Footprint Floors and Dan! I had a pretty strict timeline and Dan made sure to accommodate me! His crew showed up on time and did a very good job, even checking in with me throughout install to make sure everything was up to my standards. We are in love with our new floors and are very thankful we found Dan!
Isabella Marconi 08/17/22 — google

Dan and Keevin were professional, overly communicated and did a great job refinishing our floors! We were picky with the stain mixture and they put in the extra time to make sure we liked the finished product. We are loving our new floors!
Christy Conant 02/10/22 — google
Footprints Floors refinished my 30 year old hardwood floor. Even though we had water damage they refinished it and it looks new! Great job! I highly recommend Dan. Very good experience.
