How to choose the right floor product for you and your family.

Wood flooring

Choosing flooring is far more complicated than just finding the best-looking floor product.

There are other factors along with design such as, moisture control, durability, sustainability, ease of installation and price to name a few factors to consider before you make your final decision.

Maybe you decided it was time to freshen up your home with a new interior design project, or it could be that you have some office space that needs a subtle design touch for it to become a more productive work place.

If you’re about to buy a beautiful floor with professional installation then you’ll want to make sure that you see a return on your investment and that it adds value to your home. Plus, your floor must be easy to maintain and scratch resistant.

How you and your family live and use your home is the most significant factor in which flooring you choose. If your family has heavy traffic in particular areas, pets to deal with, and kids running around then you should consider resilient flooring, such as vinyl, laminated or man-made wood flooring.

For example, flooring that is in the hallway should have a “wow” factor, but at the same time be durable high footfall and the outdoor elements. Flooring in bedrooms, and kid’s rooms should be comfortable for bare feet.  Flooring in utility, laundry and bathrooms needs to be water resistant to avoid warping.

Follow these steps in order help you reach the flooring decision that is right for you and your needs.
