How to Choose the Perfect Floors for Your Home

Posted January 11, 2015

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if house designs could incorporate one flooring type that works perfectly for everyone? Unfortunately, what works for some people may be completely wrong for others. Depending on your family situation and lifestyle, different flooring options will be more suitable for you. Here is information on some common flooring materials (from your family home builder in Perth) to help you decide which flooring solution is best for you!

Vinyl Planks and Tiles

Vinyl is a very popular and inexpensive flooring solution. Many vinyl products are a simple “peel and stick” installation, and it’s very easy to replace one or two damaged planks or tiles. Vinyl is also highly resistant to scratching and abrasions, which is perfect for high traffic areas or homes with pets in them!

Ceramic Tiles

Ceramic tiles are very durable and long-lasting, making them perfect for areas which experience high levels of foot traffic. They are also very easy to clean which is important for big families and homes with pets. Ceramic tiles also come in a huge range of textures and colours, allowing you to customise your home design.


Carpet is ideal for the bedroom, as it provides a nice soft surface. Carpet can be made from solution-dyed nylon or wool, which have stain and spill resistant properties. However, carpets can are more difficult to clean than other flooring options and are not ideal for homes with pets in them!


Wood is a natural material that looks beautiful and wears well. However, it needs maintaining, and it can be scratched and damaged. If you have pets or small children, it may be worthwhile considering a hardier option in the high foot traffic areas of your home!
