The 5 materials for a perfect floor

When renovating a house, do you have to choose the furniture or the floor first?
It depends on the type of renovation and how much you want to intervene. Generally, if the style of the house is clear, the choice of the floor must take place first and now I will explain why.

The floor unlike other accessories such as fixtures, furnishings, lighting, etc. it is necessary to complete the home environment and above all it is the background of the house panorama, so pay attention to the choice! There are various types of flooring, first of all the primary choice starts from the budget available for the purchase, from the lifestyle of those who live in the house (if practicality and resistance are sought in the material or just aesthetics) and from the size of the house. For example, if you live alone or in a couple, any floor could be fine, if otherwise you have children or animals, the choice will be towards a more resistant and especially easy to clean material.

We know the main types of flooring together.

A timeless covering, an authentic material able to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It is mainly used in the most delicate areas of the home, such as the bedroom and living room. The main advantage of this material is the ease of combining with any type of furniture, ranging from modern to classic. In addition to having an excellent aesthetic impact, it is also a material with considerable technical characteristics: it is cool in summer and warm in winter, it is an excellent thermal conductor and acoustic insulation. Also in the laying of the material the eye wants its part and already from the most ancient times it "played" with the disposition to attribute to the floor a different aesthetics. Even today we find the classic horizontal or diagonal poses, or for the more creative ones, the propeller, herringbone and coffered poses.

A 100% natural material, derived from the processing of clay. Sturdy, warm and material, we often find it in country houses or rustic homes. But not only that, if combined with other more modern materials, it can be easily inserted even in contemporary solutions. Rediscovered and re-evaluated, as it gives a "lived" and characteristic appearance to the house. It hardly undergoes variations during the course of time, but if this should happen it is to be considered a merit and not a defect because the natural aspect of the material would be more evident. Its colors range from yellow, to rosé to red, with smooth or grainy surfaces.

Porcelain stoneware is the type of floor currently the most popular in interior design. It is a simple material to maintain, very resistant and is able to imitate any type of finish (wood, marble, concrete). It is used in all areas of the house, kitchen, living room, bathroom but also bedrooms, thus obtaining the same aesthetic rendering over the entire surface. Depending on the size of the tiles, different effects can be created: eg the large sizes such as a 60x60 cm are ideal for large-sized rooms while the smaller ones (available in square, rectangular or hexagonal shape) for bathrooms or kitchens, where you can indulge in special colors and designs.

Elegant, versatile and easy to clean material. It is known mainly for its continuity without leaks and for the various colors available. It is a liquid compound able to create a thin and self-leveling film, used in most cases above old flooring to avoid the removal of the floor. The resin makes it possible to create highly suggestive modern floors. It is also possible to apply the same material to the wall, giving continuity to the environment, thus increasing the perception of space.

High-quality and precious material, rich in colors and unique veins. There will never be a second copy of a marble floor, just like wood, unlike instead of porcelain stoneware. The brilliance of the marble gives, in a natural way, the splendor of the stone and reflects it on the surrounding environment. The colors are variegated, from classic white, pink and ocher to bright colors such as malachite green, lapis lazuli blue or damask red. In this case the material is much more delicate and difficult to maintain.
