Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best flooring for basements, kitchens and bathrooms?

When installing flooring in your home, keep in mind that some materials are better suited for certain rooms while others are not. Use this guide to help you make the best decision for your home.

Best Flooring for Basements

Basement flooring should be highly resistant to moisture, as many basements are below grade. Choosing the best flooring for basement spaces depends on what they’ll be used for. For example: 

  • An epoxy basement floor is a durable finish for concrete.
  • Vinyl basement flooring is generally waterproof or water-resistant. 
  • Laminate floors can be an affordable option, but they’re often not 100% waterproof.
  • Ceramic tile floors are also water-resistant. 

If your basement isn’t moist, carpet tiles are also an option — just make sure to use a moisture barrier.

Best Flooring for Kitchens

Kitchen flooring does more work than almost any floor in the house, so you’ll want to choose a durable floor. The following are among the best flooring types for kitchens:

  • Porcelain tiles can be fashionable, moisture-resistant, and cost less than stone or wood to install.
  • Vinyl flooring can withstand dents, is generally inexpensive and it’s easy to install.
  • Linoleum flooring can be durable, easy to maintain and affordable. 
  • Wood flooring could be damaged by dropped pots and pans, furniture and pets. However, hardwood and engineered wood floors in kitchen spaces are still popular among homeowners.

Best Flooring for Bathrooms

Bathroom flooring must withstand high moisture levels while also being comfortable on bare feet. Here are some of the best flooring options for bathrooms: 

  • Porcelain tiles are generally comfortable, waterproof, stylish and less costly than stone or wood. 
  • Vinyl flooring is waterproof, cost-effective and can imitate wood convincingly.
  • Natural stone can be expensive, but it’s typically hard and durable.

Reach out to a flooring installation and repair professional near you to see which type you should install in your home.

What is the best flooring for dogs?

Waterproof or scratch-resistant flooring is typically the best flooring for dogs. This includes: 

  • Vinyl: Vinyl may not add much to the value of your home, but it is resistant to scratching, stains, dents and accidents. Plus, it’s an affordable option.
  • Tile: Tile is generally water-resistant and scratch-proof, and more affordable than hardwood or stone.
  • Laminate: Laminate is not truly waterproof, but it is tough and often more scratch-resistant than other wood floorings. 

Remember that solid hardwood is susceptible to damage, including dents, scratching, licking and accidents. But if you want to install wood floors, the best hardwood floors for dogs are typically made out of maple, Brazilian walnut or bamboo.

For more tips on choosing the best flooring for dogs, talk to one of the best flooring installation professionals near you.

How much does it cost to install flooring?

The national average cost to install flooring is $5,500, with prices ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 . Your cost can be much lower or higher depending on the type of flooring you select, the square footage of the project, and other important variables like demolition and repair work needed.

Here are some examples of floor installation costs, depending on the material:

Is it worth it to hire a professional flooring specialist?

Unless you have plenty of experience installing the type of floor you want, it is worth it to hire a professional flooring specialist. 

The first reason is tools — pros have them, and they know how to use them. Without the proper experience, there is a high risk of injury with nail guns and power saws. A good pro also works quickly, saving you time that you could spend doing other things. 

Finally, a pro gets you past options paralysis by helping you decide the best flooring for different rooms and areas of the home.

They scheduled my floor install job just days after we discussed the quote, and they did a great job. They cared about the quality and aesthetic of my floors, as they helped me make decisions on several different areas. The floors look great, and I’ll likely be using them again for a bathroom remodel in the near future

I was looking for someone to install vinyl plank flooring and wanted it done as soon as possible. I reached out to Jose on a Monday and he was able to come look at the project the next day and then completed the project on Wednesday (it took one day). Jose and his crew did an excellent job of installing the vinyl floor and baseboards (approx. 350 sq feet). They arrived on time and were extremely professional. The quality of their work was awesome and i would definitely hire him again for future flooring projects. I highly recommend Jose!

Yong did a spectacular job installing hard floors on our main level (550sqft)! It was an easy decision to use his services based on his past projects and his unbeatable pricing. He provided high-quality workmanship and completed the project within 24 hours. Needless to say, I would highly recommend Oak Floors! We will be using them again to hardwood our stairwell. 10/10!

I am so happy with the quality and finished look of my new flooring. Very pleased to work with Joan, Josias and Juan(I think). Before the project started they were very responsive and helpful when it came to the selection of the type of flooring that would work for my space. Great recommendations and feedback when I sent the options I was looking at. I felt very comfortable every step of the way. They are great at what they do. I already gave a referral.

We hired Mr. Chun to replace our carpeted basement with vinyl plank floorings (about 300 sq. ft). He came to our home today to finish the installation within 9 hours. We really appreciate his professionalism and his meticulous craftsmanship. So happy that we just decided to hire him again to install the same flooring in our parts of the home. I think that’s enough said 😊 Accurate measurement Competitive price Excellent work Happy customer

From the initial scheduling of the estimate to the little details, Martin and his team were excellent. When we agreed on a price, and scope of work, he pointed out that I might be happier with the alternative of removing existing hardwood (that was severely damaged in some spots) and installing all new hardwood so that the factory finish and plank width throughout my home matched (rather than having one color/finish wood on the basement, refinished smaller plank wood on 1st floor, and new wider plank wood on 3rd floor). I agreed and he worked with me on the price so that cost was not too much of a factor. Tae and Martin kept me informed throughout the entire installation process and took care of the smallest details that I didn't even think about until it was finished. I highly recommend KNN Flooring.
