Sweeping, vacuuming, and maintaining your floors should be the least of your worries when you’re trying to get the most out of the time you have. That’s why we’ve picked out the 3 most low maintenance flooring options, so that the next time you need new floors, you can choose the ones that will cause you the least amount of headaches.

Concrete Flooring

Far and away, concrete is the winner when it comes to floor coverings that will take little effort to maintain. While you might think of basements or industrial spaces when you think of concrete flooring, this style is making a splash in plenty of residential homes. Concrete doesn’t have to look cold and boring, there are plenty of ways to spruce it up and make it match with other styles. You can paint concrete floors, acid-stain them to create uniquely beautiful patterns, or even stamp them to make intricate and custom designs. Concrete floors are very hard, which means that even high traffic areas are suited to them. You don’t need to worry about vacuuming, and even sweeping is easy with concrete floors, which tend to resist dust and dirt naturally. Cleaning when you do need to is a breeze, as concrete floors are waterproof and don’t require finicky specialty cleaning.

Ceramic Tile Flooring

Ceramic tile flooring provides many of the same low-maintenance benefits as concrete flooring. Ceramic tile floors are hard and durable, so they won’t scratch or dent, and they’re resistant to water as well, so they can be easily cleaned and are perfect for kitchen and bathrooms. Ceramic is very stain resistant, so you don’t have to worry about set in spills, and you’ll be sure to find a ceramic tile flooring that matches your style, since tile is one of the most versatile flooring options on the market.

Luxury Vinyl Tile

Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT, is a form of vinyl flooring that brings together the cost-effectiveness of vinyl, with the look and strength of tile. Vinyl flooring is easy to maintain and requires no special care or maintenance. This is another floor covering that would enable you to trash the vacuum, as regular sweeping will be enough to keep your vinyl flooring looking just like new. Vinyl is water and stain resistant as well, so feel free to use it in rooms where spills might be more common.
