When building a house in Ghana, it is important to pick the right type of flooring that will best suit you. Here is a list of different types of flooring along with their pros and cons.
If you’re looking for an extremely durable and long-lasting flooring solution designed for high traffic areas and fits your lifestyle, then Laminate Flooring is an excellent choice, especially for homes. If you can get your hands on good quality laminate flooring it can last you up to 15 years.
It’s stylish, long-lasting and due to its versatility, laminate flooring is suitable for virtually all room types. Laminate gives the look and feel of real wood.
Vinyl flooring comes in either tile or sheet form. One of the least expensive forms of flooring, vinyl is very popular amongst homeowners because it offers great value.
Available in a wide range of colours, designs and styles, vinyl tiles are easy to cut and install by yourself, especially when the tiles come with self-adhesive backing.
Offering a strong, sustainable alternative to traditional hardwood, strand-woven bamboo floors are ideal for home and commercial environments.
Bamboo floors offer a few distinct features as opposed to laminate flooring which have made them a popular choice for a wide range of buildings.
Ceramic and porcelain floor tiles are a very popular flooring choice in Ghana. Not only does it look clean and classy, but it’s extremely durable for our climate.
Ceramic tiles are made from clay fired in a kiln. Then a coloured glaze is added, and the tile is fired again, making the colours stand out. Ceramic tiles tend to be slippery, so they are usually treated with an abrasive if they are to be used as floor tiles.
Porcelain tiles are clay tiles fired at very high temperatures. This creates a dense tile that is quite resistant to moisture. Porcelain tiles are also extremely strong and long-lasting and are great for heavy traffic.
