Local tile, hardwood and carpet options that will floor you

Posted 30 October 2019 by Team Hudson

Upgrading your flooring is an amazing way to change the look and feel of your home. From the classic look of hardwood to the cushy comfort of carpet, flooring can be chosen to match your intended style or set an ideal mood.

But how do Whatcom County homeowners know which options are better quality? How do you know which products will last into the next generation?

One way to ensure that you’re getting your money’s worth in flooring is to buy local. Doing so gives you access to a team of experts who know their craft inside and out. When homeowners work with a design/build contractor like Hudson Remodeling, they essentially are tapping into our team of vendors, each of which is an expert in its own area. These Whatcom flooring professionals know what brands will wear well and what options are a no-go for our Pacific Northwest climate.

If you’re looking to refresh your home through upgraded flooring, let’s dive into some of the options:

Hardwood flooring: High-quality hardwood flooring is typically the most expensive option for flooring, but there truly is nothing like it. While there are excellent products out there that come close to mimicking the look and feel of hardwood, many customers still choose actual wood flooring for its durability and timeless look. As you can see from this recent project, hardwood floors can contribute to a stunning overall look for your home. For hardwood flooring, Hudson Remodeling often chooses Bellingham’s Robinson Hardwood & Homes on Grant Street.

Carpet: When underfoot softness is what you want, there really is no substitute. There’s simply nothing like wall-to-wall carpet for increasing the overall comfort and coziness of a room. As with any flooring option, though, it’s important to install good-quality carpet that will resist stains and wear so that it still looks good 10 or 20 years down the road. For great carpet, Hudson Remodeling chooses The Color Pot on North State Street in Bellingham.

Tile: With its large variety of styles, materials and uses, floor tile continues to be a popular option for homeowners. One bathroom Hudson Remodeling renovated recently received gorgeous black and white tiles with a pattern reminiscent of styles common in Spain and Portugal. Another was outfitted with 12-inch-by-24-inch ceramic tiles. For floor tile, Hudson Remodeling works with Aqui Esta Tile on Grant Street in Bellingham. Some customers’ tile is also sourced from The Color Pot.

Vinyl and linoleum: Luxury vinyl plank flooring (not that cheap stuff you might remember from your childhood) is a beautiful option that is seeing a big resurgence these days. Linoleum, which is one of the most eco-friendly flooring options you can buy, also is seeing a comeback. The materials used to make linoleum are cost-effective, natural, biodegradable and renewable. And the reason for the growth of vinyl flooring? Advances in technology have made it cost-effective to produce plank-style vinyl flooring with surface designs and embossing that help it emulate real wood or even stone tile. For great linoleum and vinyl options, Hudson Remodeling prefers Mobile Floor Coverings on Hammer Drive in Bellingham.
