Flooring Options

Our floor gives us visual appeal, warmth on our feet and adds character inside our home.

When we think about what floor we use we first think of the area the floor goes in and the characteristics it should have. Sure, any type of floor can in theory be installed everywhere- when we temporarily lived in the UK we had in the property we rented carpet in the bathroom. Possible yes, but I am not sure it was the right decision.

But outside those basic principles of avoid carpet in the bathroom there are other things to think about. Where if anywhere do you walk barefoot? What is the maintenance requirement? How environmental are the products out there? How do you heat your home? Underfloor heating is best with tiled floors for example. This and more we explore in our flooring section.

Timber Flooring

Timber floors add character and a natural feel to your home. Here we look at tongue and groove, cork and engineered timber floors.

Tile Flooring

Tile floors are very robust. Tiles can be made out of ceramic and stone for example. Tile floors last a very long time and work very well for areas with underfloor heating.

Carpet Flooring

Carpets can be made of many different materials. Carpets are warm to walk on and can be made from sustainable and natural materials.

Linoleum Flooring

Linoleum floors tend to be made from linseed oil mixed with cork dust, pine resin and wood flour. Lino flooring is a eco friendly flooring choice that is available in a range of colours.

Earth Floor

Earth floors are the oldest type of flooring we used. A sustainable and environmentally friendly choice that does not get as dusty as you might think.

 

Laminate/Vinyl/PVC Flooring

Laminate, vinyl and PVC flooring are cheaper and artificial produced floors compared to the above options.
