If your floors are looking a little jaded, there are indeed many options, with both natural and composite solutions, and before making a selection, there are a few things to consider. Rather than settling for what you already have, here is a brief rundown of the flooring choices we have today.
- Hardwood Flooring – If you want the best, dig deep into your pockets, as a hardwood floor is never going to be cheap. Yes, it will last for years, and with a sanding every few years, the floor will maintain its charm and character.
- Luxury Vinyl – If you love the look and feel of real timber, but are not impressed with the high prices, luxury vinyl is for you. Search online for a flooring company in Birmingham and they will have a wide selection of stunning designs that look like the real thing. Oak, pine, mahogany, they have it all, and if stone is your thing, luxury vinyl comes in stunning marble and travertine finishes.
- Laminate Flooring – Hardwearing and waterproof, laminate flooring offers the same great finishes as luxury vinyl, and with special cork backing, the silent walking experience has a softness about it.
- Engineered Flooring – Very popular with UK homeowners, and for good reason, as engineered flooring looks and feels like solid timber, with a thin veneer of real timber that has a composite core. It even has an advantage over solid timber, as it is completely waterproof.
Whatever you choose, make sure the supplier is established and has experience installing floors, and with a professional installation, you can look forward to many years of trouble-free use.
