How to Choose the Perfect Flooring

Kura Collection by Amtico

When it comes to creating the perfect “look” for your home, flooring is one of the most vital ingredients. The type and style of flooring that you choose can make or break the other design elements of your space, so getting it right is key to perfecting the interior you’re looking for. With so many options available these days, selecting the right material and style can be overwhelming, which is why we have put together a few tips to remember which will help you choose the right floor for your next interior design project.

Which room are you focusing on?

Whichever room you are looking to decorate, it’s a good idea to first think about how the space is used. For example, hallways and kitchens have lots of foot traffic so selecting a hardwearing material for these spaces makes sense. Hardwoods such as the Spanish Cherry Parquet above can cope with high volume traffic, while linoleum provides an inexpensive yet easy to clean surface in hundreds of designs. Both are available at our stores for fitting throughout the Somerset area.

Long gone are the days when carpet was the first choice for a bathroom. As these spaces tend to see a lot of moisture, stone and ceramic tiling are a wonderfully functional choice to avoid any mould or mildew build ups. While the world is your oyster for which flooring to choose for the living room, remember that stone and wood can be cold on the feet, so if you prefer your lounge to be a cosy space you may want to think about wool rich carpets such as the Abbeyglen Fermanagh Plaid design from Brintons below.

What style are you aiming for?

Using sites such as Pinterest to create mood boards of your favourite styles and colour schemes will give you an overview of which kind of styles you are after. Nothing quite beats seeing the samples in person though, as you can get a feel for textures and how easy it will be to maintain the product. Our dedicated team in Weston-super-Mare will be able to help you select the right style and material for your intended room. 

It is worth noting that choosing a classic design will ensure the longevity of your flooring, meaning that you will not have to invest in a new one when you decide to change the colour scheme further down the line. Black and white tiling will never go out of fashion and is easy to update with colour pops when you grow tired of the existing colour scheme.
