Flooring for Living Spaces
Think Beyond the Living Spaces
Living spaces can flow directly into other spaces so it is important to consider a ‘bigger picture’ plan for your flooring. New technology allows for hard flooring such as hybrid to flow from living areas to wet areas as it is 100% waterproof. This increases the opportunity for you to create a seamless look throughout the whole home.
You can complete your space with the look of real hardwood without stretching the budget. Laminate flooring utilises cutting edge photographic technology to simulate the stain, graining, and texture of wood for a fraction of the price, whilst being very durable.
This cost-effective option is easy to maintain and is hard-wearing, even in high traffic areas. Vinyl comes in individual pieces, which also look very much like timber boards. Perhaps the stand-out feature of the vinyl system is the ability to easily replace vinyl planks in the event of damage. Unlike click-together boards (hybrid and laminate) vinyl planks easily pop out individually to be replaced, as opposed to replacing the entire area of flooring.
If you would prefer carpet, for a high traffic area you can choose one that is particularly durable in terms of the fibre such as synthetic fibres. Formal spaces or less-used living areas are not as restricted, opening up the options even more for you so having the luxury of wool carpet in living spaces needn’t be as scary as it sounds. There are also many benefits of wool carpet, with it being natural product wool just feels better and provides warmth during those cold winter months as it has natural insulating properties. It is also naturally fire resistant and kind to the environment as it is sustainably sourced, a renewable resource and is also biodegradable.
