Functional Flooring for Your Farmhouse and Homestead


Kacey BradleyWhether you're starting new construction or want a modern update, there are plenty of flooring options that can add functionality to your homestead. From durable to stylish, the best option will depend entirely on your wants and needs.

Look through the following five farmhouse flooring choices to see which will work best for you.

1. Tile

If you want a flooring option that will make your farm or homestead look great, consider tile. Tile flooring is easy to install and extremely resistant to wear and staining. It's also cost-effective, as it is around the same price as other flooring materials but can last much longer, around 75 to 100 years if cared for properly.

Ceramic tiles have a protective glaze on the surface to make them water-resistant, the perfect option for rooms which might get wet or humid, such as the bathroom, kitchen or laundry room.

Installing tile can also increase the resale value of your homestead, should you ever choose to put it on the market.

2. Linoleum

The most significant benefit to choosing linoleum flooring is the price. Compared to options like tile and hardwood, it's much cheaper. Be aware linoleum will not last as long as other materials, typically needing a replacement after 10 or 20 years.
