Put Your Best Foot Forward: Flooring Options for Active Families

Posted on 12 Dec, 2019

Modern heartfelt living is all about spending time with family and friends – so the less time you can spend cleaning and maintaining your new home’s floors, the better. And what’s more, today’s contemporary flooring options combine the practical convenience of easy care with fresh looks.

You can make your new home at Centennial uniquely yours by choosing flooring that best meets your family’s needs and lifestyle. Here are some things to know to put your best looks underfoot.

It’s the warmth and comfort of carpet.
Carpet has been many homeowners’ go-to flooring choice for several reasons. This flooring mainstay is known for comfort and durability. Many of today’s carpets are stain-resistant, hypoallergenic and environmentally friendly. If you want a plush, luxurious look, opt for high-pile carpeting. Going for a more contemporary vibe? Try one of the blends or wool shag carpet styles. Carpeting is a good option for bedrooms and stairs for sound absorption, added insulation, easy maintenance and softness underfoot.

Choose the durability of vinyl.
When vinyl first hit the market, it was relegated mostly to kitchens and baths. Not any longer. Vinyl is a tough and versatile flooring friend to active families. Today’s designs so closely imitate the appearance of ceramic and hardwood that it can be hard to tell them apart. Vinyl floors also mimic stained concrete and stone in abstract and color-blocking designs. Forget spending your days cleaning floors; with vinyl, you get a modern look with the bonus of easy care.

Try eco-friendly and tough tile.
Fighting allergies? Consider tile for your new home. Not only is it beautiful and durable, but tile also is hypoallergenic and emits no harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). And don’t think tile only goes in the kitchen or baths. Today, ceramic and porcelain tile’s crisp, distinctive finishes are giving a modern, refreshing look throughout the home. Because of its easy maintenance and stain resistance, tile is a great choice for active families like the ones who live at Centennial.

Love the natural beauty of wood.
Who doesn’t love a wood floor? With a growing number of both natural and engineered wood products to choose from, wood offers something for every design style – from rustic to sleek and elegant. If you want the real deal, opt for solid hardwood flooring in oak, cherry, hickory, maple, birch or another wood. Engineered wood flooring is a practical alternative with the pizazz of solid wood. Wood holds up to the most active lifestyles with easy maintenance.
