Comparing 5 Main Types Of Flooring For HDB & Which Is The Best For Your Resale Or BTO

Best types of flooring for your HDB flat

You’ve gotten the keys to your swanky new HDB flat, and now it’s time for the fun part: decking out your pad. Aside from the furnishings and walls, you must also pay attention to the types of flooring and ensure they are built to stand the test of time. 

But with so many different materials available, which one should you deck out your floor with? We look at 5 popular types of flooring and why you should consider top grade vinyl flooring from the likes of Evorich for your home.

1. Vinyl – Durable with plenty of design options

Durable, waterproof, easy to install and maintain, and most of all, stylish — what’s not to love about vinyl? It has become one of the most popular go-to’s for today’s homeowners. Vinyl also takes the cake with a wide array of colours and designs to suit any aesthetic, ranging from basic wood and concrete to complex decorative tiles and marble.

Getting started with vinyl flooring for your home is easy too. Look no further than Evorich, whose unique brand of Evo HERF vinyl flooring is 100% tested and certified to be low TVOC for good air quality, slip-resistant, and safe for children and the elderly. 

And if you’re thinking of doing a Japanese Zen theme with wooden flooring, Evo HERF is the perfect fit with its range of simulated wood designs. The best part of these designs? No trees are harmed in their construction, meaning you get to build your dream ryokan without harming the environment.

2. Laminate – Affordable option

Laminate flooring can also replicate the look of wooden floors.

Laminate flooring is created by compressing multiple layers of fibre before topping it off with a photographed image of wood. As it’s not real wood per se, laminate flooring is thus light on your wallet and easy to install.

However, laminate flooring isn’t the most waterproof. Leave spills alone for too long and you could find the joints swelling and distorting — definitely not an ideal option for your kitchen and bathrooms.

3. Marble – Unique & luxurious look

Marble flooring gives your home an atas touch with its smooth and glassy texture. As marble is a natural stone, you can also expect your flooring to feature a one-of-a-kind design that’s unique to you

The downside to marble? It tends to be expensive, with prices ranging between $40-$70 per square foot. Marble is also a pretty fragile material, which means scratches and stains are pretty noticeable. Expect to be especially rigorous with your maintenance if you pick marble for your floors.

4. Ceramic – Easy maintenance & durable

A classic favourite, ceramic is well loved as it requires low maintenance, on top of being highly durable. Impermeable by nature, ceramic resists water and moisture, preventing the growth of germs and mould.

Despite its advantages, ceramic can be tricky to install. As ceramic is heavier and harder compared to regular tiles, it can be difficult to cut and fit your home’s configuration. 

5. Parquet – Classic old-world charm

Parquet is one of the most beautiful flooring options you can find, its signature blend of wooden blocks arranged in a mosaic pattern adding a cozy vibe to your abode. Depending on the style of your interior decor, you can opt for dark or light parquet, or even a classy mix of shades.

The beauty of parquet comes at a pretty penny, and it also requires regular polishing and sanding to retain its shine. You’ll also want to protect your parquet flooring from direct sunlight, as its colour will fade when exposed for too long.
