As a Clearwater homeowner, you know firsthand that it is a city unlike any other. With sunshine and gulf coast beaches, our weather is hard to beat. But the climate we love also influences the type of flooring that works well in our homes. Here are the best flooring options for our warm and humid Clearwater climate from the experts at Floor Coverings International® of Largo.
Engineered Hardwood or Laminate
If you love the look of wood, engineered hardwood and laminate flooring are great options. They are excellent at withstanding moisture and provide you with the color and grain options found in real wood products. Traditional hardwood floors require careful attention in our Florida climate as the humidity can cause them to expand or contract, leading to gaps between the planks and possible warping.
Ceramic or Porcelain Tile Flooring
Ceramic and porcelain tile flooring are popular with Clearwater homeowners. Tile flooring is strong and durable, unaffected by humidity, and easy to care for. Ceramic and porcelain tile comes in a variety of sizes and a wide array of color options allowing you to customize your floor to match your design needs.
Vinyl flooring has come a long way from its origin in the 60s and 70s. Today it is a modern and trendy option for homeowners looking for a budget-friendly material. It is versatile in color and design, making it a great fit for a variety of decor. Vinyl is inexpensive, easy to install, and easy to clean and care for.
Our final flooring suggestion for Clearwater homeowners is concrete. Polished, stained and/or acid-etched concrete floors are becoming increasingly popular with Clearwater homeowners looking for a sleek, modern, design aesthetic. Once it installed it will offer easy maintenance and durability for a lifetime.
