Oregon’s climate is influenced by it proximity to the Pacific Ocean, which regulates the weather a great deal. Despite this, Oregon’s climate remains somewhat varied. Some areas of the state see as much as 200 inches or rain each year, while there are deserts along the eastern section of Oregon that see as little as 8 inches of precipitation. Because of the varied climate it is important to invest in a floor that can withstand a great deal of damage while also being easy to clean. If you live in an area that sees a great deal of precipitation you may want to invest in tile floors that will hold up nicely against a lot of moisture. Hardwood and laminate will buckle under a great deal of water exposure, so choose a floor that is virtually impervious to a great deal of damage.
