WHICH HYBRID FLOORING OPTION DO I CHOOSE?
To be able to answer this question there a few important factors to consider. At Carpet Connect we have a large variety of hybrid flooring options available to choose from. When discussing options with a customer a lot of time is taken to explain the differences between the hybrid flooring brands and their ranges. Below are the factors that I believe should be considered when choosing the most suitable hybrid flooring brand for your home.
Size of Planks –
There are three available sizes of hybrid flooring in the market: 1.2, 1.5 and 1.8 metres roughly. Large hybrid planks are the new trend. Larger planks in any size room gives an aesthetically pleasing, uncluttered look in both residential and commercial applications. Rooms are left with less joins, thus creating a more streamlined look.
Type of Click System –
There is no need to use glue during the installation of hybrid flooring which makes it easy to install and reduces the cost of installation. The best click system for hybrid flooring especially when the width is more than 180mm is 5G as it will lock the boards regardless of the external pressure direction.
Embossed Effect (Real EIR) –
Hybrid flooring not only has some embossed texture but you can feel what you see such as the knots and the grain of the floor to create a realistic feel. This would need an extra stage at the manufacturing process to emboss the design on the hybrid flooring surface very accurately.
Colour Consultation –
The final step after considering the above factors is the colour choice which can be the quite overwhelming when there is a wide range of colours to choose from. With each consultation we give our customers a visual experience of how the flooring will appear in their homes.
