Choosing The Right Flooring
There are four main considerations to take into account when
choosing the flooring for your self build project. These are
lifestyle, budget, style and degree of use.
Lifestyle is an important factor in your choice because
different types of flooring require varying amounts of care.
Hardwood is easy to clean but requires periodic refinishing and can
be damaged by spilt liquids. Laminate flooring requires less
maintenance and is easy to clean, whilst a tiled floor is easy to
take care of, but it does need sealing about once a year.
When it comes to budget, hardwood is the most expensive option.
Although it will cost you more than laminate, it's more durable and
requires very little maintenance so it may well prove more
economical in the long term. The other option is engineered wood
flooring, which has a real wood top layer but is cheaper and easier
to install than solid wood flooring. Tiling is usually easier to
install so you could save money by reducing labour.
The style of your house can also determine the best flooring for
you. If your project is formal and elegant, hardwood flooring will
add to this look. Both ceramic tile and laminate, however, are at
home in nearly any type of build.
The final factor that you should take into consideration is
degree of use: what kind of usage will the flooring receive? If
it's a very high traffic area, it may be wise to choose a flooring
material that will stand up well to heavy use. Laminates usually
fit the bill here, as can ceramic tile, whereas hardwood is not
such an ideal choice for these types of areas.
No matter what types of flooring you decide upon, Jewson can
provide you with exactly what you require. And as a leading
