Which floor this Summer?

Summer is a great time to upgrade your flooring, whether you're looking for a cooler, more refreshing option or a durable and low-maintenance one. With so many different flooring options available, it can be tough to decide which one to choose. In this blog post, we'll explore some of the best flooring options to consider when shopping for new floors this summer.

  1. Hardwood flooring: Hardwood flooring is a timeless classic that can add warmth and elegance to any room. Hardwood floors can also be refinished multiple times, making them a durable and long-lasting investment. One drawback of hardwood flooring, however, is that it can be sensitive to moisture and temperature changes, which can cause warping and cupping. For this reason, it may not be the best choice for areas with high humidity, such as basements or bathrooms. Our Vita Engineered wood floors offer huge choice and quality here, including extra- wide and very fashionable 260mm plank widths.

  2. Laminate flooring: Laminate flooring is a popular choice for those who want the look of hardwood flooring without the high cost. Laminate flooring is also durable, easy to clean, and resistant to scratches and stains. It can be a great choice for high-traffic areas such as hallways and living rooms. However, it can be slippery when wet, so it may not be the best choice for areas such as kitchens or bathrooms. Egger laminates is our choice here.

  3. LVT - or Luxury Vinyl flooring: Luxury Vinyl Flooring has come a long way in recent years and is now available in a variety of styles and colors. Vinyl flooring is moisture-resistant, making it a great choice for bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. It's also easy to install and low-maintenance, making it a great choice for busy households. However, it can be prone to scratching and denting, so it may not be the best choice for homes with pets. We would recommend Amtico inshore.

When it comes to choosing the right flooring for your home, it's important to consider your needs, your lifestyle, and your budget. By considering these factors, you can choose a flooring option that will be both practical and beautiful for years to come. So, whether you're looking for a classic hardwood floor or a modern vinyl option, there's a flooring choice out there that's perfect for you in our store on 34-38 Commercial Street, we're open Tuesday to Saturday and we can come and measure your space and get you grounded. 01423 569825.
