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.

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.

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.

I asked in the beginning for a quote to install about 420 Sq ft of laminate flooring, 15 Sq ft of hardwood, and baseboards. I said that we would provide all the materials, we just needed labor and carpet removal. He came out to quote and he said his price would include labor to install it all. I confirmed that we would have all materials ready to install. He quoted me to install 470 Sq ft even though we had about 405 Sq ft (I was just being generous at 420. I told him I would pay him for what he installed. He arrived the day before my job was scheduled to start telling me he needed contract and 30% deposit. He got to my house and started getting rude, telling me he never said be would install baseboards. He said no, he would install shoe molding. I told him that wasn't on the quote. I said that is what I asked you to quote and he threw someone else's quote at me and told me to show him. This was after we rented a Home Depot truck and spend $150 in baseboard. He agreed to take back the wood from me and me to not pay him for the pieces I couldn't take back. He also said he would buy the shoe molding. Says he wants to go to Home Depot 1st thing in the morning. Then he has me write him a check for 50% of the job and an extra $100 for shoe molding. I didn't want to argue anymore so I wrote the check. He shows up to install and says nothing about the baseboard that need to be returned. He asked where he could cut the pieces and I let him know the back patio. He removes the carpet and piles some in my neighbors yard and some on the curb for the trash people. He was gonna leave the carpet under the rails for the sliding closet doors and the poles that were in the closet until my husband in screwed them and showed him how easy it was. He works the day and then leaves and doesn't even tell me when he would be back the next day. Later that day I found him cutting wood upstairs in the house so there was dust everywhere. The next day he shows uplease and again nothing about the baseboard that need to be returned. He finishes the upstairs and didn't even try and clean up some of the dust from using the saw upstairs. He starts the small closet on the main floor and he is running his compressor which is quite loud in my house for my kids. I show him the plug right by the front door and ask him to put the compressor outside and plug in there so it isn't so loud. He saus okay and keeps working like I never said anything. It was like he assumed I was going to move his compressor for him. Anyway, he finishes the work and tells me he is all done and ready for payment. I ask him if he is going to help me get that baseboards back to Home Depot like he agreed and he told me no. I told him then I wasn't paying him for it then and an additional $20 which is what I need to rent another truck. After 10 mins of going back and forth he agreed to take it back and take him payment minus the pieces I couldn't return. Originally he quoted me 470 Sq ft but I measured just over 400 Sq ft. I purchased 438 Sq feet and there was 1 box unopened. I told hime even though it was 400 sq feet they use 426 Sq ft so I was willing to pay for 430 Sq ft. He to yell so I told him to go measure. He walked up stairs with my husband to measure and he was trying to say the room was a foot or so longer than it was. After being very irritated that we had even measured on our own. He finally agreed on the sq footage and I wrote him a check. He loaded the baseboard in his car, dropped them at the curb at Home Depot and them drove away. Doing the wall through of the house before we moved he didn't even install the shoe molding correctly. There is almost nothing holding some of it in place. He also wanted my husband to reinstall all the closet doors that he took down because we didn't have a chair in the house for him to use as a stool even though he knew a head of time that our house would be completely empty. Although the floors look good (which has a lot to do with getting rid of the old carpet I will never use or refer this company ever.
