Flooring: Choosing the Right Type
Choosing the right flooring type for a living space can be a tricky decision. Does the area receive a high level of foot traffic? Is there the potential for water and moisture in the air or on the floor? What kind of footwear is most prevalent by the people using the space? Read on to gain a better understanding of characteristics for different flooring types and their best applications to a living space.
Kitchen & Bath Flooring
Talk about high traffic areas! For most people, the kitchen area has more foot traffic than any other room in your home. That’s why luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring are a very popular choice. You can achieve a near identical look to ceramic tile with LVT and hardwood plank with LVP. Once installed, these flooring types are quieter than ceramic tile and hardwood, and they have the added benefit of being waterproof! Keep the ceramic tile for your backsplash, but go with LVP or LVT for your flooring. These flooring types will provide many years of durability, noise reduction, and waterproof resistance for your kitchen area.
In the bathroom, LVP and LVT have enjoyed tremendous popularity for the same reasons as noted above – affordability, durability, style, and water resistance. The looks and styles are practically endless.

Bedroom & Living Room Flooring
What rooms in your home, other than the bathroom, do you most enjoy going barefoot or wearing just slippers? If you think of your bedroom and living room, you’d be right on target. That’s why carpet is a favorite flooring type for these rooms. Plush, stain resistant carpet can feel great for tired feet, and provide a layer of warmth during colder months. Be sure to go with a quality padding under your new carpet investment. The right padding can add comfort and years to the life of a carpet installation. Here on the coast, where sand and salt are plentiful, folks do like the easy-to-clean attributes of luxury vinyl plank. Often, with those flooring types, an area rug can still add the comfy feeling that you want in these intimate living spaces. Williams has one of the largest area rug collections in Wilmington – ready for you to select and take home in the same day.
