If you live around near the coast in Florida and frequent the beach, there is no doubt you probably struggle with sand in your home. While the beaches give many Jacksonville and St. Augustine residents a place to cool off and relax, it, unfortunately, follows you home (and not in a good way!). Whether you own a beach home or your permanent residence is near the coast, there are several ways you can make your beach clean-up experience easier—it starts with your flooring.
There are different types of flooring that are better than others when it comes to cleaning up fine particles such as sand. Below, the experts at Speedy Floor Removal have compiled the three best types of flooring for any Florida beach home.
Best Types of Flooring for Coastal Homes
Luxury Vinyl Plank
Luxury vinyl has come a long way in the past several years. What used to be very expensive is now affordable for most and best of all, easy to clean. Because hardwood flooring can be easily ruined with sand, luxury vinyl gives homes that hardwood flooring look without risking expensive damage over time. Vinyl plank is also waterproof which helps it last longer and stay durable.
There is a reason why many homeowners put tile in kitchens and bathrooms; it’s because it’s easy to clean! Tile flooring in a Florida beach home is no exception to this rule. While tile typically isn’t found in living areas of the home, many flooring companies offer tile in a variety of styles and colors and often doesn’t look like traditional tile found in baths.
Concrete flooring has become a huge trend in the last few years. Giving many homes an industrial look, concrete is durable and can withstand just about anything. Some flooring companies are now offering dying and coloring techniques where you can change the color from the dark, industrial look to a modern, one of kind colored or textured finish. Concrete flooring is easy to clean and maintain which is perfect for coastal properties.
One disadvantage with concrete flooring is how hard the floor is. However, with area rugs and a frequent vaccum, concrete can be a durable flooring perfect for a coastal home.
