In last post, we compared pros and cons between luxury vinyl flooring and laminate flooring.
Today, we expand our searching to give you a wide comparison across 5 types flooring materials commonly chosen in Singapore, i.e. Tille, Stone, Wood, Vinyl, Laminate, and Concrete Screed. Let’s start one by one:
The most popular is the homogeneous ceramic tile especially for areas that require waterproofing such as bathrooms and kitchen. However, one drawback is that tile is not easy to maintain as grout lines gathered dirt over the years and requires frequent cleaning to keep it looking its best.
Vinyl flooring becomes increasingly popular due to its rapid abundance of design patterns, ease of maintenance, affordable price. The material itself is resilient enough to free your worry from scratching.
Concrete Screed was unacceptable in the typical Singapore home as it feels “work in progress”. It is getting some more adoptions these days as young couples choose to adopt simpler lifestyle. With a concrete sealer to top it off that not only minimise the feeling of dusty at home, but also a smoother finish, concrete screed is a real bank saver.
