There are many types of floor coverings available on the market. Each part of a house would have individual floor requirements. It is imperative to note that some areas would require a more durable surface that is easily maintained. These would include kitchens, bathrooms and garages. Normally, garages do not have a covering, but the screed is hardened and left smooth, making the surface more durable and easier to clean. (Grano)

The different types of floor coverings would include vinyl tiles or sheeting, fitted carpets, carpet tiles, natural fibre mats, wooden block flooring, wooden decks, marble, granite, slate and ceramic tiles. The different types of flooring would vary in durability. Products such as marble, granite, slate and ceramic tiles would generally last a life time, whereas carpeting and vinyl flooring would have a limited life span.
