choosing sunroom flooring floor expo new york new jersey

There are very few rooms in your home or office space with the versatility that a sunroom affords. A sunroom can be an oasis after a long day at work, a place to relax on the weekend with friends over coffee and stories, or it can be a great place to “be” outside when the weather is too cold to actually do so. Sunrooms can be places of magic for kids, making great areas all their own to build castles and forts alike. As such a versatile and unique room in your home or office space, it can be a challenge to find flooring for your sunroom.

Consider Value Added to Your Home

Any time you invest in home improvements, you need to make sure you are going to at least get out what you are putting in for value in your home. Wood flooring and high-end tile add the most value to your home in the long run due to their durability, popularity, and aesthetic value. However, if you think your sunroom will just be a magnet for dirt and water from your plants, then it may not be worth the extra money and care involved. Carpet tiles by Floor Expo could be a great option. They are durable, easy to install, are low maintenance, and come in many different colors and styles to suit your taste.

Consider Ease of Cleaning

Sunrooms run the gamut from prim and proper to fun and fantastical. Odds are, your sunroom will probably be used by every member of your family, including your fur babies. When considering flooring for the long-term, you need to consider how easy it will be to clean. Do you want a room that you can just vacuum once a week? Or do you want a room where if things spill, it’s no big deal, and you can just wipe it up. Also consider what extra tools you will need to clean up your new flooring. Floor Expo notes that some cleaning tools are easy to use and cheap to purchase, such as mops and brooms. However, if you choose carpet or carpet tile, you may need special carpet cleaners to get the job done. Furthermore, carpet will need to be professionally carpet cleaned regularly to ensure its longevity, aesthetic value, and overall cleanliness.

Consider UV Protection on Your Windows

With a room as big and as bright as a sunroom, the sun will be streaming in and hitting your flooring for a good portion of the day. Many flooring types, , such as hardwood floors, can exhibit sun damage with that kind of exposure. You may want to consider the sun when choosing your sunroom’s flooring. However, there are steps you can take to mitigate the sun’s effects, such as UV protection on your windows and certain stain treatments for your hardwood floors if you are installing them.
