Modular homes are built in factory environments before being installed in their permanent foundation. It is popular because it reduces construction time. Floating floors, also known as laminate or engineered wood, are usually preferred for modular homes to reduce the risk of damage during transportation. There are many available flooring options to choose from. However, it can be difficult to choose one that looks good and suit your lifestyle at the same time.
Engineered Oak Flooring
Engineered oak flooring is made to look and feel identical to hardwood flooring. It gives your living spaces a warm and 3-dimensional look. Even though it is low maintenance, it can be easily damaged and scratched by hard objects as oak is a soft surface. It is not advisable if you walk around your home in high-heeled shoes or have children’s toys laying around.
Vinyl planks are available in a variety of colors and textures for you to choose from to match the furniture and style of your home. It is durable, inexpensive, easy to clean, and recommended for high-traffic areas. It is only available in a matte finish and may not look luxurious. For a glossy appearance, you can opt for a hardwood or bamboo finish instead.
Carpet is a popular and timeless choice to create a cozy and warm look in your home. It is also one of the most affordable options. However, without proper maintenance, it can be easily stained and dirty. It is probably not the best idea if you have young children or pets. If you like the look that carpet provides, you can choose to install it only in specific areas of the house, such as bedrooms or lounge areas.
Tiles are preferred for wet areas around your home, such as kitchens, restrooms, and laundry rooms. It is available in various colors, designs, and materials – ceramic, porcelain marble, and more. While it is tough against water, it is not recommended for large areas of space as it can be challenging to clean. Dirt, debris, and bacteria get trapped easily in the grout.
