Flooring & Countertops
Floors and Countertops are subjected to a lot of wear and tear from constant usage so when considering materials to be used for flooring and countertops, durability is one factor that should be given more than enough consideration. It does not make sense to pick an aesthetically pleasing material that cannot withstand the wear and tear as it would get damage quickly and cost more to replace. Durable materials like hardwood, concrete, natural stones can be used as they are both aesthetically pleasing and durable for use.
