It’s a highly sought-after type of flooring that is durable and can be refinished multiple times. However, it can be susceptible to moisture, which makes it less than ideal to have in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and basements.
Hardwood is best for main living areas, hallways and kitchens.
Tough vinyl flooring is impervious to water and the construction of it feels good underfoot. This flooring can mimic real wood and tile. However, vinyl still gives off that synthetic look and it is not exactly eco-friendly.
Although bamboo is not wood flooring, it has a similar warmth and beauty to it. It has hard flooring, but you can look for the best quality types to ensure its durability. It is also environmentally friendly since it is renewable. The cheaper varieties of bamboo are prone to dents and scratches.

Ceramic tile flooring comes in a wide variety of colors and styles. It can be durable when the ceramic is glazed, and it is also impervious to moisture, stains, and scratches. To some, the hardness of ceramic tile is not their preference, and the grout lines do require constant maintenance.
Ceramic tile is best for kitchens, bathrooms, and sunrooms.
Cork flooring is a renewable product, which makes it eco-friendly. It has a warm and vibrant look and it is naturally resilient, making it feel good underfoot. It can come as tiles or planks, depending on the preference of the owner. However, sharp objects can tear it, and it needs to be refinished with sealers on a regular basis. It is also susceptible to moisture, so keep this flooring out of bathrooms and laundry rooms.
