Decisions about carpets and flooring are often overlooked and left until the end of the work. Yet your floors have a major role not only in the look of your home, but type of floor, design, texture and colour will have a big impact on your living experience.

Your floors are the first thing people see on entering your abode, they cover the largest area of each room and are the most costly to replace in the future. This means careful consideration is required before choosing which flooring you will have. They are the foundation for your home’s design style and once you have settled on the perfect flooring for you, you are free to make other decisions. These choices are made easier when you know your proposed type and colour of floor, such as style and colour of furniture, lighting and general theme.

Flooring is ideal for creating the desired atmosphere from luxurious, cosy and decadent to elegant, pristine and sophisticated. Some love the softness of a carpet especially under bare feet, noise reduction and warmth are also factors to consider when making these choices. Carpeting nowadays is increasingly hard wearing, stain resistant and pretty easy to keep clean.

If your lot are heavy on carpets, like to wear shoes indoors, eat wherever they please or your pets keep forgetting they are house trained, you might think about vinyl, wood or laminate flooring.

Vinyls and LVT, which can cleverly replicate the look of stone, marble and wood, come in a vast array of colours and finishes and are a great flooring option. They recreate the look of materials which are extremely pricey, yet LVT is affordable, warmer and quieter. It is also tough and a dream to clean, highly usable in just about any room of the home, giving beautiful and impressive results.

Wood or laminate flooring comes in many shades, effects and finishes and has many practical advantages. Modern laminate is robust and is available in a range of cutting edge designs. Plus versatility is added by the placement of rugs, which change the whole feel of a room. Call Wood Street Carpets to book a FREE consultation on 01245 358900
