If you are the proud new owner of a lake home, cottage or cabin, you’re probably wondering about the best options for flooring materials. It’s likely that the retreat came with flooring already in it, but part of adding your very own personal touch is adding things that truly make it yours, like flooring.


One of the most common factors in lake homes is the level of humidity and moisture that the flooring will be subjected to, which can lead to the value of waterproof flooring. With this product, your worries about water damage are well taken care of and can certainly be placed in just any room. Flooring types you’ll have to choose from include tile, luxury vinyl and even laminate now comes in a water resistant option.


For cottages and cabins, many people choose carpet, simply because it is provides a soft, underfoot feel for those wonderful vacation weekends or extended stays. Since these areas are often only used part time, and not constantly put through rigorous wear and tear, carpet can easily reach its proposed life span and beyond.


Still another excellent option for these homes is hardwood flooring. You have the option of either solid wood or engineered wood, with engineered wood being a better choice for humid areas where temperatures are apt to change often. Wood floors give an elegant look to vacation homes like these and it’s not a choice that homeowners often regret. The life span alone makes it a great option, as it’s likely to be the last floor you ever have installed in these homes.
