When it comes to choosing new flooring, you’ll need to consider your options properly to make sure that what you choose is perfect. We’ve rounded up the most important things to make sure that the flooring you choose is perfect for you.
Where’s the flooring going?
Firstly, think about where in the house the new flooring is going to be installed. Is it for a bathroom, kitchen, basement, or other high moisture area? Or space where moisture shouldn’t be a major concern, like the living room?
Vinyl is a very popular choice for high moister areas, like the bathroom or the kitchen. Easy to wipe and clean, very good value for money and softer underfoot than tile, the other common option, it’s easy to understand the popularity of vinyl for these rooms.
However, if your new flooring is going in a room such as the living room or the bedroom, then you’ll want something a bit more warm and comforting. For these rooms, a hardwood floor or carpet is the best option, with Karndean wood providing warmth and a natural feel, and carpet being the softest choice along with also providing a warm atmosphere.
Who are you living with?
Another important consideration is the impact that the occupants of the house will have on your choice of flooring. If you have young children or pets, then hardwood could become scratched, so carpet or even vinyl flooring would be a better option.
If you’re looking for a hard floor and aesthetics are your main concern, then Karndean stone is the perfect flooring. Beautiful, stylish, warmer underfoot than traditional stone and easy to clean, it’s also durable and not susceptible to breaking or scratching, making it perfect for a stylish look even if you have little ones or pets running around the house.
