Growing up in a house full of girls, I unofficially took on the role as my father's only son. So when the time came to fix a leaky sink or change the oil in the family car, it was me that stood by my father's side. Thanks to him and everything he taught me, I am now able to take care of myself and my children in a way that not everyone can. I have tried over the years to engage my own daughter in the same way my father engaged me, but she's currently more interested in playing with dolls than fixing potholes. After my father passed away last year, I vowed to find a way to pass on everything he taught me, this blog is my way of keeping that promise. I truly hope that you learn as much as I have over the years.
Upgrading your flooring is a great way to improve your home as a whole, as well as give it a new look. However, you might not have the funds to change floors throughout your entire home and instead want to focus on a single area, especially when the bare flooring of tile is involved due to its ease of cleaning and modern look. A viable alternative to reflooring your entire home with tile is to choose areas that are commonly used to achieve the greatest effect, and deciding to install tiles in the entrance hall and living area is the most effective way to accomplish this goal.
Avoid Changing the Rest of Your Floors
When you change the floors in these areas, you do not feel the need to make changes to the rest of the home. It is important to feel this way because a flooring change can be rather out of place when it is not carefully planned out beforehand. So, you need to find places that fit in with minor changes, and both the living area and entrance hall are two ideal locations for these adjustments to be made.
The main benefit of focusing on just these two areas is the amount of high traffic they have and the benefits of being able to keep the spaces clean without much effort.
Take Full Advantage of Tile Qualities
Tile is one of the strongest types of flooring that you can get in your home due to its durability and protection against scratches. Fortunately, with how much foot traffic your living area and the front entrance can receive, it can withstand years of constant use and still look incredible as long as it has been properly maintained from the beginning. Luckily, maintenance is typically as simple as wiping down the tiles and cleaning the grout from time to time.
Enjoy an Affordable Upgrade
It is tough to find a budget friendly upgrade when it comes to flooring, but only changing part of the flooring in your home is the easiest way to minimize the amount of money you need to spend. When tiling only a small part of your home, you'll likely be able to afford a nicer quality tile floor and won't need to spend as much money due to the limited square footage covered.
As you look into the selection of tile flooring available, you can move forward with getting just the living area and entrance hall covered for a clean and inviting look.
