Some of the top-of-line stuff is very nice and can be hand in patterns
that look like tile or hardwood. It's also a lot cheaper and easier to
maintain. Have it professionally installed.
Spend all the money you save on some nice oriental rugs - from Iran.
Don't buy rugs made in China or India or Pakistan.
Thanks for the suggestion. I have linoleum in the basement bathroom and it looks very much like real tile. I would imagine it has the same sonic qualities of wood or vinyl. Certainly worth considering.
Well, I am not sure of the difference between Linoleum and Vinyl Tiles, except that one is in the form of little squares that are easy to install oneself.
I am also not sure that the self-stick vinyl tiles are long lasting or not, as our garage seems to get some water infiltration during heavy rains, so had to re-glue the tiles down, which is not recommended procedure.
The garage is one of the better sounding rooms, though. The concrete floor helps greatly, as well as the pitched ceiling. That was two pluses, but I doubt if the flooring over that makes much of a difference, except that I DO NOT care for wall-to-wall carpeting. A throw rug is a far better choice both aesthetically and sonically.
