Renovate your home with modern flooring options

Posted 27 June 2014 by Team Hudson

Do you have carpeting in your home that is looking worn and dingy or linoleum that is dated or curling at the edges? If so, it may be time to update the flooring to something cleaner, more modern and more durable.

Marmoleum and pre-finished hardwood flooring are great options for modernizing a home – and there are endless colors, patterns and styles available for both options.

Marmoleum is a bio based product that is highly durable, non-toxic and very easy to maintain. It’s thicker and more durable than the old school linoleum we all grew up with in our kitchens and bathrooms…and, as we like to say around here, it’s “tough stuff”.

This solid surface flooring product is ideal for use in bathrooms, laundry rooms and mud rooms, especially because it is so easy to clean.

Marmoleum has become a favorite product for interior designers because it comes in a variety of patterns, from those that look like marble to others that look like concrete or even wood. The product also is available in sheets or tiles in a rainbow of colors, from subdued shades of brown to bold shades of red. Because of all of the available styles and colors, Marmoleum is an ideal option for homeowners looking to update flooring without having to redecorate an entire room.

Pre-finished hardwood floors

Pre-finished hardwoods are beautiful and have the added benefit of being fairly quick to install (when you know what you’re doing). Crews at Hudson Remodeling can often have pre-finished hardwood flooring installed in one day.

One real benefit to installing pre-finished hardwood flooring is that it doesn’t have the mess or fumes that can occur when installing traditional wood floors in a home. It also tends to have a longer warranty – 15 to 25 years – as opposed to raw wood flooring, which may only have a 1-year warranty.

Like Marmoleum, pre-finished hardwood flooring is available in many styles, so homeowners can choose from a grain of wood that they are drawn to or a stain of wood that matches their room’s décor.
