Knowing and choosing the right floorings for your Home

There are many flooring options in the market. But what makes some flooring options more sough after than others? And would the options suit you? Many homeowners face this dilemma at the start. Fret not as our designers have done the ground work and are here to lighten your anxieties. Read on to learn more about the best flooring options in interior design Singapore and why they may suit your interior design style.



Vinyl

Achieving the wooden look without the termites, Vinyl is an affordable material if you are looking for a material that's resilient and waterproof. However, it’s far from being the eco-friendliest option on the market.



Engineered Wood

Looking for something that is durable and resistant to moisture? Engineered wood may be a great choice.

Engineered wood mainly comprises compressed plywood. That means it’s very durable and doesn’t warp as easily (yes, you can use it in the kitchen and bathroom)!


For those wanting to replicate the look of natural wood: High End Resilient Flooring (HERF).

Manufactured from virgin pulp, HERF does not contain the more poisonous chemical, phthalates, that increases the flexibility and lifespan of plastics (i.e. those found in your typical vinyl options).



Laminate

Laminate is affordable and has a similar look to hardwood floors

Composite wood slabs are pressed together and finished with a top layer of ‘photographed wood’ covering. Because it’s constructed this way, it can mimic any wood pattern. However, it must be noted that the grains are uniform! So, if you clad a large area in laminates, it’s very telling and can come off looking synthetic.



Tiles

A durable, non-porous yet easy to maintain flooring, tiles is best when it comes to high traffic or moist areas. Tiles can be made of either ceramic or porcelain. They come in a variety of designs and finishes, including the HDB-approved homogeneous tiles. In general, tiles can be used in high-traffic and moist areas in the home. Strong and non-porous, the tile is resistant to liquids, making it harder to stain than its counterparts.


Despite how hard-wearing it is, the grout in between the tiles is susceptible to moisture and stains. That’s why these lines have to be sealed regularly for increased protection, or you might find mould growing there!
