When it comes to making any decision in the world of construction and interior design, at the end of the day, only one thing matters: the cost. When embarking on the journey that is picking a new floor for your home or business, it is important to find something that not only looks good and meets your specific needs, but is also affordable. Even in a place like Nashville and the middle Tennessee area, with all of its millionaires and larger than life figures, it is rare to find someone for whom price is not a concern. Luckily, the professionals here at Ozburn-Hessey are here to help. They know the ways to find something that works for you, and will not break the bank in the process. There are many ways to achieve this, and these wise flooring sages will show you the way.
Walk the Plank! - Laminate Plank Flooring Options
The first thing you need to decide when looking for something cheap and affordable is to figure out what your price floor is, so to speak. What are you willing to pay, and what are you willing to save? There are a lot of cheap, low quality options out there, but you are going to pay for it in the long run when you have to replace it in a few years anyway. That does not mean every cheap option is a cheap floor. For example, one of the cheapest flooring options is also one of the most versatile: laminate plank flooring. As long as you don’t want carpet, laminate flooring can be made to mimic just about any other look you could possibly want. It is usually a good deal cheaper than every other flooring option, and is surprisingly durable as well. It’s not waterproof like its cousin, vinyl plank flooring, but if you want something that is going to look good and won’t kill your budget, you would be hard pressed to find something better than laminate plank flooring.
Tiles on the Floor - Carpeting Floor Options
If you do want to go with some nice residential or commercial carpeting, then look to modular carpeting. Although it has been around for a couple of decades, modular carpeting has only recently received any kind of public attention. It is a shame, because modular carpeting, which consists of a series of carpet tiles that can be arranged in a variety of patterns and styles, is a great way to have the cushiony comfort associated with carpeting without sacrificing on cost. On average, you are looking at something in the neighborhood of $1.50 per square foot, which is a pretty great deal when you think about the versatility and color options you will be able to choose from. Another benefit is that if you do have an area that gets damaged, you will able to just replace the offending tiles, not the whole floor.
