Flooring in a home carries all the footprints, all the furniture, all the movement, so when you are thinking of flooring it is important to think of durability – something that will last and be able to withstand the traffic it carries. Whether you have just bought a new home, renovating to sell, or you simply need to redo the flooring in your home, here is a list of cost-effective flooring options that won’t break the bank.


Vinyl flooring that looks like wood is a great cost effective and hardwearing alternative to wooden floors. Vinyl floorboards give you the look and feel of wood and are pet and child friendly. Where wood may be easily scratched from paw prints running around, using vinyl flooring is a great alternative. They are also easy enough to install by yourself.


Laminate is another option for inexpensive wood-look floorboards. Despite looking and feeling very similar to vinyl flooring, there are a few differences between the two. Laminate flooring is cheaper than vinyl – however you do get low and high-end products in both products. Laminate flooring is installed with its interlocking mechanism, whereas vinyl is glued down. Laminate flooring is also very durable, water resistant and easy to clean.


Tiling is a great durable way to floor your home, it is highly durable if you choose the right tile (as you get indoor and outdoor tiles), it is easy to clean and can bring a modern look to your home depending on the tile you choose. Tiling is susceptible to cracks and chips if you drop heavy objects onto the floor. It is also recommended to use a professional contractor to lay the floor to ensure it is level.


Carpets tend to be inexpensive per square meter, and many people have a misconception that carpets can look cheap. However, carpets have developed and are made up of different fibers, meaning they are not a one size fits all. You will be able to choose a high-quality carpet and with the right care it will last. Carpets also bring a lot of warmth to a room, saving on electricity bills during the winter. It is also important to remember to choose a carpet of neutral tone to ensure it doesn’t date – as trends come and go in style.
