If you’ve been planning to re-floor your home from top to bottom, at Frank’s we have the best range of flooring to choose from. With a visit to your local store, we guarantee to have something for every room in your home, always for the best prices.

With so many options to choose from, you might be wondering how to possibly narrow down the decision-making process. That’s why we’ve put together a list of helpful hints to make the process of selecting floors for each room in your home that little bit easier. 

That being said, we always encourage you to think about what you personally like in terms of style and decor choices, so that your home has its own individual stamp on it.


Often, hallways and entrances to a home will see the most wear and tear compared to other parts of your property. Snow, rainwater, mud and dirt are all likely to get trampled inside at some point, especially with a household of kids and pets.

Therefore, we don’t always recommend carpet for this area because it can easily become worn and stained. Hardwood is another choice that can begin to warp and age quickly as a result of wet footprints.

Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are a fantastic choice for hallways. With the ability to mimic real wood, offering a high-end appearance, it is considerably more hard wearing and also waterproof; offering up a much better solution.

Living rooms

While many households prefer carpet for their living spaces, it can easily become worn over time due to how often the area is used. Similarly, the quality of hardwood can diminish as a result of heavy traffic.

However, if you do choose carpet or hardwood for a living room, consider adding rugs or padding to the feet of furniture to reduce damage caused.

Alternatively, laminate can prove a more long lasting and affordable alternative. Designed to resemble real wood boards, it is durable and much easier to maintain compared to carpet and hardwood. 


Unfortunately, sometimes kitchens have to contend with water spills. Therefore, ideally you need a flooring solution that won’t warp or rot with accidental water damage.

If you are on a budget vinyl flooring is cost effective and, at Frank’s, is available in a wide range of colours and designs to suit your kitchen decor. However, if you are able to spend a bit more, then LVT is a like-for-like product with the ability to last even longer.

Laminate flooring is an option if your kitchen doesn’t see much heavy use but is not as waterproof as vinyl, nor as easy to clean and maintain.

Dining room flooring

When it comes to flooring for dining rooms, there is a balance to be had between style and functionality. 

Laminate flooring offers up an impressive aesthetic that mimics real timber and is easy to keep clean, especially when food and drink is around.


Due to the purpose a bathroom needs to serve, the flooring must be completely waterproof and easy to clean. 

LVT is an excellent flooring choice for bathrooms because it is waterproof, simple to maintain and is available in a huge range of designs. Achieve the look of porcelain tiles or natural stone without the hassle.

Bedroom flooring

Generally, bedrooms experience the least wear and tear compared to many other areas of the home. That’s why carpet is a forever popular choice because after all, who doesn’t love the comfort of stepping out of bed and placing your feet into an inch of plush, deep carpet?

For a room that is designed for relaxation, wall-to-wall carpet is a perfect choice. 

Home office flooring

Ideally, the flooring you choose for your home office must suit the office equipment you have. For example, if you have an office chair on wheels you won’t want this to scratch wooden boards or cause indentations on new carpet.

Choosing laminate flooring or LVT will provide a hard wearing surface, so it won’t matter whether you’re moving around on the wheels of your chair because you’ll have flooring that can take a hit.

For added warmth and comfort, thick underlay can be installed underneath your flooring of choice or rugs can be added.

Pop down to your local Frank’s and we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect flooring for your home.
