Unusual Types of Flooring
Along with the options already mentioned, there are more unique options, too. These are found here.
While rubber for flooring may sound odd, there are several situations where it may be beneficial. If you want a flooring option that will absorb sound, then rubber is a smart option. You can also use this in a home gym or similar space. Home gyms are becoming more and more popular these days since many gyms are still closed.
If you want a rustic, farmhouse vibe from your flooring, then plywood may be a smart option. Not only does it look great, but it is also affordable and durable too. Also, if a single board goes bad, you can fix it quickly while maintaining your floor.
Once the plywood is installed, you can also finish it based on what you want for the space. This means you can create a look that suits your home and your needs.
