Choosing an interior floor can be easy. But, normally, a previous search is needed to select the floor covering that best suits your needs.
Before starting with the types of interior floors, it is very important to investigate your options in time and compare the information. And think about the impact it will have on your day-to-day life, the climate of your stay or the available budget.
Local climate: Although climatic conditions mostly affect the installation of exterior flooring, they also impact interior flooring. Extreme temperature changes and humidity will condition your decision when choosing one type of floor or another.
Use of the floor: The type of floor will depend on the use that is going to be given because if you plan to install flooring in offices or hotel rooms, you will require a more resistant material that can withstand the passage of many people and, therefore, a greater budget.
Develop a budget: From a small room to complete interior renovations or projects, a budget is very important when choosing the material and type of flooring. Create an achievable and measurable budget adapted to your needs, so you will decide on the best floor covering option according to your pocket.

Laminate flooring is a great alternative to parquet flooring as it does not require a high budget for its installation. Among its characteristics, we find its economical price, ease of cleaning and imitation, to perfection, of the realistic and natural aesthetics of wooden parquets.
The suitable place for its use is in areas of domestic and commercial use, for example, living rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, corridors, offices or small shops where you can count on a resistant floor for years.
An alternative to parquet and laminate wood flooring is vinyl or PVC flooring. Vinyl offers very interesting benefits for our home since vinyl flooring is an excellent conductor of heat, resistant to humidity, acoustic insulation, hypoallergenic (especially important for people with allergies) and resistant.
Vinyl flooring is very versatile, and its imitation of wood is very successful, being possible to imitate it in other materials, such as stone, concrete or fabrics. If you are looking for a quick makeover in a certain room, vinyl flooring is very simple and quick to install.
If we compare it with other materials, vinyl flooring is less resistant and requires more care.
Suitable place for its use according to the type of installation: It can be installed on planks, tiles or rolls. To install vinyl flooring, there are four options:
- Vinyl floor in the click: Wet rooms, bathroom and kitchen.
- Self-adhesive vinyl flooring: Living rooms, children’s bedrooms
- Self-supporting vinyl flooring: Small areas or action areas,
- Vinyl floor to glue: Damp rooms, such as the bathroom and the kitchen..

Among the advantages we find in the marble floor is that it is very easy to clean and gives a certain feeling of cleanliness. They are also easy to maintain. We find the sensation of cold ground when stepping on it. If the quality is not good, they may break if a heavy object falls on them.
Suitable place for use: Marble flooring is widely used in kitchen and bathroom renovations.
Although carpet is not one of Spain’s most popular floor coverings, it indeed offers excellent performance.

In addition, it is thermally insulating, an advantage if you are looking for interior floors for bedrooms or living rooms as an alternative to ceramic floors. On the other hand, if you are allergic or have asthma, the carpet will be your best ally, as it acts as a passive filter for the air and retains dust particles and mites in your room.
Among its disadvantages, we can find its installation, since you will need skills and experience. Otherwise, you will have to ask a professional for help.
Suitable place for use: The carpet can be used for various purposes, such as home use, in bedrooms, living rooms or corridors, commercial use, and in offices and hotel rooms.
