Flooring Materials for Your Home

Do it Best offers all types of flooring materials for every area of your home. How do you select the right one for your project?

Kitchen flooring materials can include vinyl, laminate, or wood. Bathroom flooring materials are usually tile, laminate, or vinyl. Other rooms in the house may be best suited for carpet. Below we explore the various flooring materials and the benefits of each.


Hardwood is one of the most expensive flooring options. Hardwood flooring material is made of solid wood and is beautiful, strong, and long-lasting. It can be refinished multiple times. It requires maintenance to keep it looking nice and is susceptible to moisture damage. 


Vinyl flooring is water-resistant, fade-resistant, and very durable. It is more expensive than laminate. Vinyl provides the look of wood planks, tiles, or other more costly materials at a much lower price point.


Laminate flooring is cost-effective. It is easy to install as a DIY project and also easy to clean. It is scratch-resistant and waterproof.


Tile is a traditional floor covering and comes in endless sizes, colors, and materials. It is very durable and waterproof. Prices range greatly depending on the type of tile, and it is harder to install than other options. 


Carpet is usually the most affordable choice for floor covering. Carpet is soft underfoot, warmer than other flooring types, and noise-reducing. It can be harder to clean and sometimes show stains, making it a less desirable choice for families with children and pets.
