Laminate floors are a nice balance of aesthetically pleasing along with being reasonably priced and very versatile. They are suitable for most areas in your home and you tend to choose a laminate that suits the area that it is going to get fitted into. For high traffic areas such as a hallway or living room then a thicker, higher quality laminate is better. But for a bedroom or study then the high durability isn’t as important.
One of the big advantages of all wooden flooring is that it doesn’t cling to dust and pet hair which really helps if anyone in your family suffers from allergies. Also, some kinds of wood flooring can be using with underfloor heating which makes a really comfortable and relaxing surface to walk on.
Wooden floors require very little maintenance apart from an occasional sweeping or vacuuming. Over time wooden floors can acquire small dents and scratches but, the better quality flooring you install, the less you’ll have to worry about these. They can add character to a floor and do not detract from the overall look especially for the real wood flooring.
Carpets are the more traditional flooring of choice. They are immediately warm and inviting and are soft under foot and very nice to sit or lie on. A carpetted room is also better at absorbing sound so if you live in a flat with close-by neighbours then it can be a much more neighbour-friendly choice of flooring.
