How To Choose The Right Flooring For Your Home.

There’s now more flooring options to select from than ever. However, it’s important to ensure that the flooring that you select is perfect for your home. With all of these options to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start. So, we’ve made It that little bit easier for you with our guide to choosing the right flooring for each room of your home.

The most popular options are carpet and wood/wood-effect hard flooring. A good way to narrow it down is to the start with the practicalities: consider what area of your home you are wanting new flooring for and work from there. Here’s some points you may want to consider though…

What & Why?

One of the main points to consider is what room you are renovating and why you need a certain type of flooring. For example, if you’re covering a high traffic room or area, you want to make sure your flooring will truly stand the test of time.

For Bathrooms, Kitchens & Washrooms, it’s important to consider that there’s going to be a fair amount of water usage and these rooms, so perhaps selecting carpet isn’t the best option. Although, consider what you want, there’s no right or wrong when it comes to your own style.

For Living Rooms, Hallways & Landings, laminate can work best, as it’s sturdy, easy to clean and can handle high footfall.

Once you know what type of flooring you want for each room, now you can move onto the fun part…
