Flooring is a general term for permanent floorings such as any floor woodwork or other formwork in the building.
Floor covering is a term used to describe any finishing material covered floor structure to make sure a trafficable surface for pedestrians.
Both terms are used interchangeably. Typically, floor covering refers to a loose-installed material. These materials that are classified as floor coverings include parquet, engineered floor, hardwood floorboards, marble, carpet, laminate, tile, and vinyl.
To choose the most suitable floor covering for your project, you should think and combine all the most important elements – functionality, visual aesthetics, and style.
The floor covering is one of the most important elements in your home that needs special attention. It is probably the second element of the house that we see as we walk through the door. Entrance doors, floors, and stairs (if the house is multi-story) are probably the most important elements by which the value of the house is assessed.
Niggardly attention paid to the floor base, and especially the sub-floor preparation work is the most commonly overlooked detail that later brings pain to your wallet. It is easy to change the cabinet, paint the wall or ceiling. However, a renovation of flooring can force you to evacuate all your belongings and occupants for the time is needed to renovate or replace your flooring.
Your money saved in the initial stage of floor woodwork may require three to four times as much cost in the future. Floors, depending on their type, equipped according to all requirements and rules will allow you to enjoy them peacefully for a minimum of 25 years.
