Between sleepovers and birthday parties, your Southport home is full of activities. You need a floor that can stand up to the hustle and bustle of your busy life. The experts at Floor Coverings International Shallotte are here to help. Here are the best flooring options for your busy family.

Natural Stone Tile

Natural stone tile would be the perfect addition to your Southport home. Besides its stunning appearance, tile is durable and water-resistant. Slate tile would give your home a rustic feel, while marble tile will add a layer of luxury.

While it’s not as affordable as tile alternatives, like vinyl, the beauty of natural stone is unmatched. If you want a low-maintenance flooring option, with long-term benefits, then natural stone tile is right for you.

Engineered Hardwood

Do you love the look of hardwood floors, but are nervous about potential scratches and scruffs? Consider installing an engineered hardwood floor. Engineered hardwood has a strong core, making it a great option for busy Southport families. The flooring can stand up to the constant stream of activities occurring in your home.

Although engineered hardwood is more expensive than laminate, it is more affordable than traditional hardwood floors. As a byproduct, it will add value to your home, but can not be refinished as many times as traditional hardwood floors. At Floor Coverings International Shallotte we think it’s a great middle-ground flooring option, perfect for busy Southport homes.

With advancements in flooring technology, laminate has become an amazing alternative to hardwood floors. From cherry to oak, you can get the hardwood aesthetic Southport homeowners love, without the price. Laminate floors are extremely durable, making them perfect for busy Southport homes.

The experts at Floor Coverings International Shallotte love laminate flooring and we think it’s a great option for many families. However, if you decide to install it in your home, you should know that it cannot be refinished. Regularly maintaining your laminate floors will prevent any scratches and scruffs from occurring.
