Thinking about new flooring for your home in time for Christmas? Changing your decor can have a huge impact on your room. Flooring is not something we tend to buy very often, yet we walk on it every single day, so it is important to choose the right type to suit your home and your lifestyle. New carpet offers warmth and cosiness; wood creates a contemporary and stylish edge, while vinyl can add colour and texture. There are a few things to consider when making your choice.

Things To Consider

First of all, which room are you looking to cover? This will help you to decide on the type of new flooring to buy. For example, a bedroom will not suffer as much wear and tear as a hallway or a stair carpet.

Colour scheme is something else to consider. Do you need to match your current colour scheme? What is your future decorating plans? Natural flooring such as wood and stone are very neutral and will look great with a variety of interiors, and for a more purse-friendly option, LVT – or Luxury Vinyl Tile – replicates the look of both perfectly. If a carpet is what you are after, a plain carpet will give you more flexibility to use pattern elsewhere in your room, whereas patterned carpet has more colour options for you to choose from. There is a lot to think about and it is a good idea is to take samples home so that you can see the flooring that you like in-situ with natural lighting.

Finally: longevity. Are you the kind of person who likes to change your decor quite often or do you want it to last for a long time? This will also influence your buying decision.
