Choosing the right flooring for your home is very important. Replacing the flooring in your property can be a big investment, so you want to get it right and make sure that you are choosing the most suitable type of flooring for you. Below we breakdown three different types of flooring and why they may be the best option for you.
- Wooden flooring
Wooden flooring is particularly popular due to its beautiful finish. Incorporating wood into any area of the home adds a touch of luxury – from rich mahogany to an exotic teak finish. Wooden flooring complements any interior, from old traditional country houses to sleek, contemporary city apartments.
High quality wooden floors can last for decades and are generally easier to clean than other types of flooring; a light vacuum or brush will keep it looking fresh. If your children or pets walk mud through your home, a damp cloth will easily remove the dirt.
- Vinyl flooring
Vinyl, because of its waterproof properties, is the perfect flooring option for areas of your home that tend to get wet, such as your bathroom or kitchen. Vinyl is long lasting and does not require much maintenance, making it ideal for big families and homes that experience high levels of foot traffic.
Vinyl does not stain easily and can be quickly cleaned using a vacuum, a brush, a mop or general cleaning product. You can choose from a wide range of different designs and colours, making it a versatile option for every home and room.
Fitting carpet in your home adds a touch of luxury and comfort coupled with added warmth and insulation. In fact, it can help to retain heat and therefore save energy within your home. While carpets require more maintenance than other types of flooring when it comes to spills and stains, they typically cost less to buy and fit.
Carpet provides a non-slip surface ideal for young children and absorbs sound, meaning that if you accidentally drop something, you won’t be met with the jarring sound of it crashing down or breaking.
