The holidays are full of beautiful images. A glistening turkey pulled fresh from the oven; steaming pies with flaky, buttery golden crusts; and family gathered around the table in their holiday best. Each of these moments is worthy of a photo that will last forever.
As you prepare your home for all of this holiday cheer, it may be time to take a look at one of the rooms that takes center stage during the holidays: the dining room. Whether you have an only-on-special-occasions formal dining room or one that’s a central hub of activity for your family, it may be time to reassess this important gathering space.
If it’s time to considering redoing your dining room flooring, we can help you decide. First, consider closely how you use the room. Is it a highly trafficked area? Or is it only used a few times a year? Do you typically have kids’ spills or pet accidents to contend with in this space? Whatever your needs are, there’s a flooring that’s just right for you.
Hardwood is, as always, a classic choice. Sumptuous hardwood in the dining room will make for a beautiful and long-lasting choice, one that generations of family will remember holiday after holiday. It’s one of the most durable flooring choices out there. As hardwood ages it can be easily rec-coated or most types can eventually be sanded and refinished. Hardwood today is offered in an unlimited array of styles, stains, widths, and lengths that can transform a ho-hum dining room into a resplendent space.
Resilient flooring is really having its moment right now. Not only is it incredibly versatile and stain-resistant, some styles are quite affordable, like luxury vinyl tile (LVT). LVT encompasses several types of resilient flooring but virtually all types capture the textures and colorations of natural wood and stone. And resilient flooring can come in planks or tiles, to suit your dining room décor. Additionally, they don’t easily scratch or dent – great for high-traffic holiday meal times and everyday living.
Yes, it’s a unique material, one that’s often used under flooring, but consider the benefits of cork and it may wind up as your flooring of choice. Cork is a soft material; more comfortable underfoot than many other hard surface flooring products. It holds up to intensive foot traffic patterns. And cork is great for spills and dirt because it’s anti-microbial which means it is resistant to mold and mildew. Cork comes in a variety of colors and styles and in plank and tile formats so you can get creative with the design.
