Part of Delaware is covered by coastland, which makes for a unique setting. Coastlines typically have more moisture and can experience extreme weather. However, Delaware typically experiences a mild climate with a long growing season. Because of the milder climate, Delaware residents have a fair amount of flexibility when choosing floors. Delaware does experience temperatures that fall below freezing during the winter, so some residents choose carpeting to keep their living room and bedroom floors warm underfoot. On the other hand, more modern products like luxury vinyl tile and laminate make great additions to kitchens and bathrooms that are easy to maintain. Natural stone and hardwood also do well in these types of climates.
Much of the architectural identity in Delaware comes from preserving the historical buildings already existing. A lot of “revival” architecture exists throughout the state where buildings were designed to mimic Greek, Gothic and Roman styles. These types of buildings typically have natural stone floors throughout them. There is also a lot of Queen Anne architecture derived from styles originating in Great Britain. Some of the more famous buildings in Delaware include the Dover Legislative Building featuring brick and stone as well as the Amstel Colonial House.
