Where to Lay Different Types Of Flooring

Looking for a new floor for your kitchen, bathroom living room or bedroom but no idea where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Like anything, we want our homes to reflect out style and what we feel comfortable with. A lot of the time we can decorate and design our homes to our heart’s content, however when it comes to flooring we have to consider practicality a little more than other interior choices. The good news is that you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to flooring. Let’s dive into some possibilities…

Impress with Parquet Wood

Solid wood is one thing, solid parquet wood is quite another. If you’re wanting to create a bespoke and luxurious look to your home, then there’s no better way to do this than with parquet wood. It shows off natural beauty that has been used for years and we certainly can’t see it going out of fashion any time soon. We’d especially recommend this gorgeous product in your hallway to give a grand first impression to guests to your home. Once more, solid wood is very durable and the pattern of parquet can help disguise scratches and stains. Perfect!

Let Go with Luxury Vinyl Tiles

Anyone that has vinyl in their home will know how practical and useful it is, especially if you come from a busy family home! It is completely scratch, stain and waterproof as well as being highly resilient, perfect for the bathroom or kitchen or anywhere that might see high exposure to these. You don’t even have to sacrifice the look of natural products either, with LVT coming in very convincing imitations of real wood and stone. It is also anti-slip and compatible with under-floor heating. On top of all this it’s also a lot cheaper than many alternatives – we’d say that LVT is virtually faultless!

Save Your Pennies with Laminate

If you’ve fallen in love with real wood’s natural charm or LVT’s practical qualities are too good to turn down, perhaps something a little more in the middle would be more suitable. Like LVT, laminate replicates natural products very convincingly and comes with fantastic practical qualities. It is resistant to scratches, stains and water, so we’d perhaps recommend it in rooms such as the dining or living room as it’s not great when it’s exposed to too much water and can scratch. You can also install under-floor heating and can get certain laminates that are soundproof. Laminate is probably the most affordable option too, perfect for first time buyers or indeed anyone on a tighter budget.
