Our Guide to Finding the Perfect Floor

1- What type of floor do I want?

This is the most important thing to solve first. Different floorings will suit different types of rooms. Vinyl and LVT floors are water and stain resistant- making them perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. Carpets work well on stairs and in bedrooms. Whilst laminate floors are great for living rooms and hallways.

2- What is my budget?

This is good to think and plan around when choosing your floor. Low budget options include vinyl and laminate. Remember, cost is often dependent on the thickness or pile of your floor/carpet. LVT is a slightly more costly option. However, it comes with the advantage of being high quality and almost indistinguishable from traditional wooden or stone floors.

3- What style do I want?

Different styles and colours suit different rooms. For example, if you have a small room, a lighter coloured floor can make it feel bigger. Large rooms with high ceilings can be made to feel cosier with darker walls and floors.

Traditional wood-style floors give a timeless look to any home. You can get wooden-style floors in vinyl, LVT and laminate. This is a great idea if you want the look of a wooden floor but don’t want the hassle of intense maintenance.

Tile style floors are also a classic option. They look great in kitchens and bathrooms. Choosing a vinyl style tile floor means you can get the look of tiles without worrying about cold feet and slipping.

In general, choosing a lighter coloured floor means that dirt and dust will be disguised. This means you won’t have to be going over with a hoover all the time. Darker coloured floors can look modern and look great in living rooms.

If you are considering carpets, keep in mind the area they are going in. High traffic areas (like hallways) need durable carpets with a closely knitted pile. Lower traffic areas like the bedroom can have a softer footfall.

4- Match your décor to the floor

This is crucial to bring the whole room together. Wood-style floors can look modern with black, metal furniture. Bring personality to a room by adding funky rugs and paintings. If a patterned floor seems too busy, try adding a plain rug to tone it down.

Top tip: Make sure you put down entrance mats. This will stop dirt from getting on your floor and help it last for longer.
