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.

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.

My husband and I contacted Darel for last-minute vinyl flooring installation in the Madison area, and he made himself available the next day. He was punctual, responsive, communicative, and very professional. He completed the floor in just a few hours for a great price. I would highly recommend him.

Martin and his crew were quick, efficient and the final product was absolutely beautiful. They were able to complete the job in a very quick turn around. I think I heard back from Martin within the hour of me posting on thumbtack, was able to schedule a meeting in under 24hrs of me posting and the project, which was installing hardwood floors upstairs, started the following Monday and was completed by Thursday! I'll definitely hire Old World Wood Floors in the future when I need my first floor needs refinishing.

Petr was good to work with. We had flooding in our basement and he came out very quickly and assessed the damage to the flooring and provided a quote to replace it. They got the materials ordered and were able to schedule the install within a matter of a couple weeks. We were very happy with the result. They were busy but they worked late to get the project done before the weekend so we could move our things back in and enjoy the new floors. I would recommend Petr and Perfect Renovation for a flooring project (they installed luxury vinyl and ceramic tile for us).

Josh is just top notch. He installed 1300 square feet of solid hickory flooring in our home. Anyone who has worked with hickory knows how difficult it is—harder than even oak. The floors are gorgeous. I’ve already hired him to do more projects — trimming down a break front from the 1880’s to fit into our new home, etc. He is so talented and I know he could do many and varied jobs. You will not go wrong hiring him!

Darel - where do I begin? My sister and I recently bought a house & discovered some horrible flooring mishaps by previous owners that needed to be corrected before we could really begin unpacking our belongings. We’re not from the Madison area so we weren’t sure where to begin looking for professionals for the various projects we needed or how soon they might be able to assist us. Not 5 minutes after I posted about our flooring job, Darel reached out, sent pictures and video of his past work and walked through the project with us. He did a virtual walkthrough of the space via Video Call, and let us know how much product to order and what additional items he would need. Then it was all a matter of waiting for the flooring to arrive. Meanwhile Darel was stain matching some pieces he would need for our stairs. When we were finally ready for them, Darel and his assistant John arrived promptly at 9 am - following a 3-hour drive to our home - and immediately set to work. They work amazingly fast, finishing about 1,000 square feet of our home (including stairs) in 3 days. And their work is incredible. They figured out tricky spots where previous flooring was askew and had virtually no waste. When I ordered material, Darel assured me I wouldn’t need to order 10% overage for waste. “I average about 3%,” he told me. As they were finishing the last rooms, my sister and I were mildly uneasy. Would they have enough product? They finished with half a box of material left. 😉 Darel knows his craft well to be that spot on with estimating from a video consult and client measurements. What we envisioned for our new home had come to fruition, we weren’t sitting on a lot of excess material, and the project was well within our budget. We price-shopped both material and installers before buying product or choosing Darel. His prices are competitive, helping us keep our project at less than half what a major retailer wanted for the same work. Just as importantly, the value for that price was stunning. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. If you’re lucky enough to book Darel for your next project, do so. You won’t be disappointed. (Forgive the dusty floors, that’s me being eager to post this review before we finished mopping our new floors.)

Dylan did a great job installing LVT in our four bathrooms. He was super flexible with the timing, showed up when he said he would, and was extra quiet around our new baby. He was also very responsive to emails. The workmanship is excellent. My wife and I are super happy with how nice the flooring looks! Would definitely recommend.
