An Expert Guide on Flooring: Begin Updating Your Home Today

Are you looking for a way to renovate your property? Flooring is a great way to start. Here is a quick guide to help you understand the best flooring options for you.

What do you need to consider when choosing flooring?

There are a number of things to consider when deciding on the best type of flooring for your room:

  • How is the room used?  If you have children or pets, it can be best to choose flooring options that are durable and easy to keep clean. Click here.
  • How much traffic will there be through the room? Hardwearing options are best for high footfall areas.
  • Is it in a room where water is used? Bathrooms and kitchens may need waterproof flooring.
  • Is the room exposed to bright sunlight?  This can fade brightly coloured carpets.

It’s also important to consider what flooring you have in other rooms in the house in order to maintain a flowing scheme.

How much flooring will I need?

The amount of flooring you will need depends on the type you have chosen and the size of your room.  Take accurate measurements for your room along with you when purchasing flooring and always allow a little extra to cover any mishaps or errors in your measurement.

If in doubt, ask an expert to measure your room for you. More information.

Do I need a professional to fit my flooring?

Although some types of laminate and vinyl flooring may be easy to fit yourself, it’s always best to get a professional to fit carpets or wooden floors and to tackle rooms that are complex shapes.  We recommend Carpet Right for your floor fitting service.
