When it comes to fresh and engaging Los Angeles home design, quality always makes the difference. For this reason, NB Construction always chooses to use the best materials. Whether we are building a room addition for a home office or creating the ideal patio we never compromise on the quality or value of the materials used. This helps ensure that homeowners can enjoy their remodeling choices for many years to come instead of just a handful of seasons. Flooring in particular has to be high quality in order to stand up to the demands of the modern family.
A Closer Look At Your Flooring Options
There is a wealth of flooring options that can bring elegance and distinction to your living space. These are just a few of the options that we can offer:
Beloved hardwood floors are both beautiful and highly durable. Choose between slender panels or wide planks, with various arrangement possibilities including decorative chevron or herringbone styles. Whether you choose a bright oak or maple or a darker wood such as black walnut, you also have options for the stain and finish. You can achieve a more rustic look or a glossy effect depending on the cut of wood and the treatment. Wood floors are generally easy to take care of with simple wood cleaners, but some need less care than others. Most any wood floor can be refinished numerous times. Many renewable options are available for eco-friendly designing. We can help you source wood flooring certified for sustainability by a recognized group.
Comfort and beauty come packaged together in a wide variety of engineered wood flooring. With real, whole wood on top of a base of plywood or recycled wood fibers. This allows for a perfectly even feeling throughout your floors, while still having natural texture and looks on the surface. Engineered wood floors handle humidity well and are easily maintained. They are perfect for kitchens and basements but look wonderful anywhere in the home.
While often considered among wood options, bamboo is actually a grass and has enough unique attributes to deserve its own category of flooring. Highly sustainable thanks to its fast regrowth rates, bamboo offers great appeal for natural homes because of its aesthetics as well. Light and airy in color, bamboo can be used in flooring as flat panels or in a more textural woven format. Bamboo is easily cared for with mild cleaners and may or may not need bamboo oil, depending on the coating of a particular product.
Another eco-friendly and natural choice, cork comes from tree bark and is sustainable as sourced from well managed forests. Warm and natural textures of cork give an organic backdrop to the room. Cork is soft and comfortable under the foot, making it a great choice for kitchens or any well-trafficked area. Many sealants help cork keep out moisture and last for years.
Technology helps laminate flooring look and feel better than ever. Extremely easy to clean and maintain, laminate can also be easily installed with floating tile construction. Laminate gives you a perfect look or wood, stone, or other surface, with a comfortable feel underfoot.
Linseed oil and cork construction makes linoleum one of the most environmentally friendly flooring solutions. If you want custom colors or a special design or pattern in your flooring, linoleum should definitely be in your mix of options. Easily installed and maintained, linoleum handles heavy use well and lets you explore color and pattern creatively.
Made from clay and shale, ceramic offers a variety of texture and finishes and comes in a variety of hues thanks to the pigment dyes to give it signature colors. Choose from more rustic varieties like terra cotta, or a glossier, glazed surface. Custom designs and patterns can be brought to life with ceramic tiles, making it a perfect flooring solution for kitchens and bathrooms.
The most gorgeous choice for flooring in many people’s opinion, versatile stone options are very desired with good cause. Natural in their beauty and feel, yet able to punctuate any décor theme from rustic Mediterranean to mid-century modern. Available in many colors and textures, with equally as many price points, stone especially looks wonderful in California homes. The cool touch of stone is both refreshing and invigorating in our climate. Softer stones include limestone and sandstone, which feature texture well-suited for kitchens and bathrooms and pleasing appearances for anywhere in the home. Harder stones like granite and marble have been adored throughout history due to their timeless grace and luxurious, iconic image. When choosing stone flooring, be sure to weigh options of texture and sealing and cleaning needs, making sure to invest in the perfect stone for each location in your home.
Get the surface appearance you want along with a cushioned, foam padding underneath with vinyl flooring. In addition to easy installation and cleaning, you can count on quality vinyl to last for years while providing comfort for your feet.
Perhaps the most versatile and accessible flooring solution, there’s no end to the choices of color, pattern, and texture of carpeting. From the simple joy of a dense wool berber to the luxury of hand-carved or custom-inlaid designs, carpet offers the ultimate in warmth and feel against the skin. Wool carpeting is generally the best feeling and most desirable, but a great range of olefin, acrylic, and other synthetic options can be long-lasting with great stain resistance. Look for density ratings to be a general guide to a carpet’s thickness and durability. While deciding on flooring solutions for a remodel or new construction, remember how both aesthetics and comfort will determine your enjoyment of the floors. Flooring lets you bring together your décor or make a style statement all its own.
Your choice of flooring impacts the look and feel of the finished room. We can help you determine which option is best for you based on foot traffic, ease of care, price point, and other considerations.
