No need to worry – we’ve put together a list of our favorite low-maintenance flooring options. These tough styles won’t have to be buffed, waxed or professionally cleaned. Most of the time all they’ll need is a quick sweep!
You know that neighbor who just put in beautiful wood floors that only took a day to install? Well, those were probably vinyl floors! Vinyl has a somewhat dated connotation, but nowadays this durable flooring can be made to look like hardwood stone or ceramic floors at a fraction of the cost. Vinyl should be swept often and mopped with warm water as needed. That’s it!
Like vinyl, laminate flooring can take on a wide variety of disguises. This makes it a versatile option that works in a variety of rooms. Touch-up kits for laminate are available, so if any small scratches happen they are easy (and inexpensive) to fix. Sweep regularly, and use a laminate floor cleaner to get dirt and grime off the floor.
One of the things people love about linoleum today is its eco-friendliness. It’s made with linseed oil, a natural, renewable and biodegradable material. Linoleum also resists stains and is surprisingly durable for something that will eventually become a part of our natural world.
- Ceramic Tiles
Ceramic is impervious to moisture penetration, which makes it a great option for rooms that have a lot of moisture like the bathroom or kitchen. Plus, it has a sophisticated look similar to natural stone tile that’s a great addition to décor. All it needs is a sweep, vacuum or damp mop when you feel it’s needed.
