determined by the type of floor it has. In contrast to walls that can be
repainted and re-installed, floors are a more long-term and most often
permanent feature. Three main factors determine what type of floor is most

third, your budget. If you live in a humid area, wooden floors may not be the
best plan. For rough and difficult uses, hard substances such as granite are
the best choice. Budget, of course, is important for obvious reasons. Here are
