Learn more about the benefits of engineered and carpet flooring

Energy efficient Magruder Homes-01Designing a remodel or new-build is no easy task, but as a Bryan-College Station home builder, we  at Magruder Homes understand that critical decisions regarding the aesthetic and functional qualities of your home are important and worth counsel. Flooring is one of the most foundational decisions that is made when remodeling or designing a home and can greatly affect the value of your investment. Contrary to what is often believed by our clients, comfort and design are not mutually exclusive when it comes to flooring. Both your lifestyle needs and your design dreams can be met when choosing the type of flooring to be installed in your home, and both hold their own in today’s trends. When it comes down to it, there are just some simple points to be considered, and today we’re breaking it down for you.

Hailing for Engineered Hardwood:

  • Engineered Hardwood floors, when cared for properly, can be easily repaired.
  • Engineered Hardwood floors are easy to clean. A simple vacuum and wet mop takes care of dust, dirt, and pet hair easily. Try a Zoomba to save you time from sweeping daily pet hair.
  • Engineered Hardwood flooring is less expensive than real hard wood flooring.
  • Engineered Hardwood flooring is versatile with so many different styles and colors to choose from. Accenting and updating a room’s design is easily accomplished by adding new rugs and accent pieces.

Championing for Carpet:

  • Carpeting is cheaper and quicker to install than hardwood flooring.
  • A yearly shampooing or steam cleaning can extend the life of a carpet.
  • Carpet disguises dirt more effectively than hardwood flooring; a weekly vacuum is more than enough to keep a room looking freshly tended.
  • Carpet is quieter and warmer than hardwood flooring, and can be safer for tumbles that toddlers often take!

Though both options offer attractive attributes, it is critical to consider the level of activity that your lifestyle calls for. Whether you have pets in the home, young children experimenting with markers and paints, or a quiet and tranquil atmosphere, your flooring will take all of the brunt. Don’t flounder in the hundreds of flooring options on the market today!
