Getting the interiors right in your home is one of the most important early day factors when moving in somewhere new. Your flooring is key, and it’s vital that you get it right depending on the environment it’s in, and what room it’s fitted in.
Hardwood flooring is probably the most popular on the market and it’s incredibly easy to see why. It’s incredibly durable, and had impressive waterproof qualities depending on how the wood has been finished. It’s incredibly important is is allowed time to sit in the room it will be fitted in to allow it to adapt to its surroundings. Engineered wood flooring has the ability to have underfloor heating installed underneath, however solid wood doesn’t due to the fact it may expand and contract under high levels of heat.
Another recommendation is vinyl tiles, possibly the best alternative to hardwood on the market, whilst still maintaining all the good qualities that solid and engineered wood possess. Made out of polyvinyl-chloride (PVC), it’s very durable and has fantastic longevity, as well as being soft underfoot. It’s an incredibly water resistant material, and probably the beat around, so is ideally fitted in bathrooms and is the best flooring for kitchens. They come in a variety of colours, so the darker the colour the warmer the aesthetic, whereas bright colours can make a room look larger and more open plan.
The final flooring we’re going to look at is laminate. Probably one of the cheapest on the market, and another alternative to hardwood. Laminate flooring is made up of a number of different layers with the main layer made of high density fibreboards, a durable material that provides excellent resistance to heavy traffic and high levels of footfall. It’s very reliable and we would highly recommend this flooring if you have a slightly tighter budget!
