Guide To Your Flooring Options

Picking the right flooring for your home is about achieving the right balance of style and functionality for your budget. It is important to familiarise yourself with your options before making your final decision so you can be sure the end result will be both well coordinated and last as long as possible. Every home and individual is different, choose your flooring based on how you use your rooms and your personal style and get to grips with the terminology.

Solid Wood Floors

Solid wood has always been one of the most popular flooring options because of its unique beauty. Solid wood is one of the more expensive types of flooring but with it you get a host of benefits: it is strong and durable while being easily repairable in the case of damage through simple sanding, it is exceptionally versatile and suits any style of décor and it is unique, the grain of the wood is like its finger print so you have the benefit of knowing your flooring is like no other. Solid wood is often not suitable in more humid conditions or moisture rich environments as it can be prone to warping so take this into consideration when planning your rooms.

Engineered Wood and Laminate Flooring

These are great flooring options that suit any budget, their versatility allows them to suit any room in your house and they retain the stunning look of natural wood while remaining a fraction of the price. One great benefit of laminate and engineered wood is they’re easy to maintain (no need for expensive polishes and varnishes) and the ease with which boards can be replaced if they become damaged.

Vinyl Flooring

Many people have misconceptions about vinyl flooring, it conjures up images of dated 1960′s lino, but modern vinyl tile is both gorgeous and affordable. There is huge variety in the price and quality of vinyl tiles on the market and luxury vinyl makes a stunning addition to any room, they also offer fantastic comfort and are easy to stand on for long periods of time so are becoming an increasingly popular choice for kitchens.
