									       Flooring: a Essential Part of
            House Decoration
The term ‘Flooring’ can be described as a permanent wrapper
of floor. In other words the process of installation of cover to
the floor is known as flooring. Through flooring, essential
materials are introduced to the floor in order to cover it with
a better interface, making the surface comfortable for walking
purpose

For floor covering there is large number and types of
materials like: wood, vinyl, linoleum, stone, ceramic tile etc.
Sometimes area rugs, carpets are also included in the
material list. Here ‘Sub floor’ is another important term which
means the base of covering. Sometimes Sub floors also serve
the purpose of flooring (solid cement floors).

Now the selection of flooring material depends on different
factors like: endurance, cost, moisture, noise insulation,
comfort etc. For example, hardwood or laminate flooring is not
appropriate for damp places.

Depending on these materials flooring can be classified into
different categories. These are as follows:

   •   Soft coverings: In soft covering mostly carpets or rugs
        are used. They may be permanent or not. Generally this
        type of covering done on the solid floors. These carpets
        or rugs are made from soft fibers. That’s why these
        coverings are so comfortable.

   •   Wood flooring: Different types of woods are used in wood
       flooring. Mainly they are classified into two categories:
       Hardwoods and Softwoods. Obviously the first one lasts
       long. For hardwood Calgary Flooring is very popular.
      Now there are different type’s wood floorings. Some of
      them are: Bamboo flooring, Laminate flooring, Cork
      flooring.

  •   Hard flooring: Here mainly stones and tiles are used for
      the flooring. They are designed into different sizes and
      styles. Stones and tiles are used lot in flooring because
      of the durable nature. Ceramic tiles are also used apart
      from the stones (specially marble and slate) and for
      ceramic Calgary Hardwood Floor is also well known to
      all. These tiles are of small pieces they are joined for
      covering of large places.

  •     Resilient flooring: Elasticity is the main quality of
      resilient flooring. It includes different types of elastic
      materials like: vinyl, rubber, linoleum etc. This covering
      is used for some different purposes like athletics, dance
      etc.

Now floors have become the most essential part of a house
decoration. And wooden floors are the most beautiful ones.
But the wooden surfaces suffer from several problems. Wooden
surfaces pass sound, especially heavy footsteps. Also it is
vulnerable  to  insects.  So    these  wooden     floors need
maintenance. With proper maintenance floors can be last for
long time.
