If you think of your floor as the canvas on which you’re going to design your entire home décor around, you realise how important choosing the right flooring really is.
Not only will it be a decision you’ll be living with for many years to come, the colours and materials will set the mood and the tone for the rest of the house.
The good news is, there are many flooring options now available that are quick and easy to install and even better, easy on the back pocket. So which style will floor you?
Designers love timber flooring for its ability to add character, warmth and texture to a room. Working with solid timber floorboards can be expensive and time consuming, which is why floating timber flooring is a very popular option. Unlike traditional floorboards or parquetry, Carpet Court’s Quick-Step® Readyflor wood planks simply click together and ‘float’ across a floor, and can be quickly and easily installed. So easy and quick in fact, you can walk on it immediately.
Bamboo is one of the hottest looks on the market, and is a real favourite with eco-conscious designers. This is a great choice if you’re looking for a more distinctive look that’s also incredibly hardwearing and versatile.
Interior design maverick and Carpet Court ambassador Darren Palmer features a beautiful Strandwoven Bamboo in his exclusive Provincial Lane range. A do-it-yourselfers dream, it has an amazing Unilin Locking System that ensures easy, gap-free installation.
Laminate has come a long way in terms of design and durability, and now offers a huge palette of styles and colours to choose from. If you’re after the look and feel of real wood at a fraction of the price, Laminate is definitely your go-to flooring choice.
Vinyl planks and tiles are ideal if you want to recreate the luxe look of a true timber or natural stone floor for a fraction of the price. Carpet Court’s Laneway Collection also has the advantage of being water and scratch resistant, so it’s perfect for kitchen and dining areas. And with soft cushioning underfoot, vinyl flooring feels as good as it looks.
