LIVING ROOM FLOOR OPTIONS FOR YOUR ORLANDO HOME
Installing Laminate Flooring – There are lots of options for the flooring in your family room. If your carpet has become worn out, now is a good time to consider your options. Here is a list (in no particular order) of popular floor options for Orlando homeowners.
Hardwoods – Hardwoods are a bit more expensive than laminates but they offer great resale value to your Orlando home and are quite stylish. Like tile, they can be loud to walk on. Throw rugs can help make the floor quieter. Family rooms receive less foot traffic than hallways so this makes it easier to take care of the floors through the years.
Wood Laminates – Wood Laminates are normally much cheaper than hardwoods and they do not scratch easily. They are also easy to clean. Some manufacturers are making laminates so well that is hard to tell the difference between the laminate and a hardwood or ceramic tile.
Carpets – The pricing on carpet can vary quite a bit based on the carpet’s quality. Carpet is a good choice for your living room because it is soft and provides a comfortable look. It also helps reduce noise and echoing in a home. Over the years, carpets have become more stain resistant due to advances in technology. However, if you or a family member suffers from allergies, you may want to consider other flooring options.
Ceramic Tile – Ceramic tile is a favorite of Orlando homeowners. Tile is water-resistant, very durable, and does not scratch easily. Tile comes in a variety of styles, materials (travertine, marble, granite, porcelain) and colors and is easy to clean. Tile can crack or chip if the condition of the caulking and grout are not maintained properly. Besides that, it is fairly easy to maintain.
Vinyl – Just like carpet, vinyl is easy on your feet and quiet to walk on. It is very affordable when compared to other flooring options for your living or family room. Vinyl can look like tile or wood. The downside to vinyl is that it can be damaged easily so you will want to be careful about moving heavy furniture across it and even maybe with pet claws.
WHAT TO DO WITH THE FAMILY OR LIVING ROOM WALLS IN YOUR HOME
We offer lots of options when it comes to your family or living room walls. Here are just a few:
Paint – Paint is one of the most cost effective ways to update the look of any family or living room. New paint wakes up a tired looking room.
Remove and install wallpaper – Although wallpaper sounds easy remove when reading instructions or tutorials, properly removing it from your walls is a whole different story. We make sure that your wallpaper is removed the right way in your Orlando home, with minimal to no damage to walls.
Other wall options we offer for your living or family room include:
FAMILY OR LIVING ROOM WINDOWS FOR YOUR HOME
Do you have a family or living room window or other home window that is sticking, hard to open, won’t stay open, or not working at all? Would you like to install eco-friendly energy efficient windows? At Handy Andy’s Handyman & Sprinkler Repair, we service window repairs as well as install new windows.
Windows that are not working properly can cause frustration and increased energy bills. Windows often do not work correctly and need repairs because of uneven settling, old paint, the sticky Florida humidity, and poor construction. Before recommending a new window, we will do all we can to repair your existing window(s).
Some people still choose to upgrade their windows because replacement parts may be hard to find, their windows look old and dated, or the windows are inefficient and costing the homeowner money each month. We also install new windows when the homeowner complains that the neighbors are too noisy or they are hearing too much traffic. New replacement windows can help seal out those sounds while improving energy efficiency.
