Choosing the right hard flooring options for you

Hard flooring is one of the most versatile flooring options. Whether it be timber, laminate, bamboo, vinyl, or the classic tile, there is a vast range of options and looks to choose from to suit any decor. Being solid, hard surfaces are extremely easy to clean and maintain, and are perfect for families. Hard floors provide excellent value as they last a long time.

Floors often play a major role in the design and décor of a space and it is important to pick the right material, style and colour of a floor. “The secret to a beautiful home? It all starts with the floor!’ says Carpet Court ambassador Darren Palmer.  If you’re worried about the look and feel of a hard floor, they can easily be softened with a rug, to give the best of both worlds with hard and soft surfaces.

Carpet Court offers a wide range of hard flooring options. Here’s some tips to help you find the perfect hard flooring surface for your space and style:




Timber floors offer a classic look combined with a natural warmth and beauty. A favourite with designers, it helps to add character to a space, with an endless number of styles and grains. Available in a range of installation options, timber floors are also versatile, low maintenance and easy to care for.




Coming a long way in terms of design and durability, laminate combines the look and feel of a timber floor with an affordable price. Giving a look you’ll love for many years to come, laminate is also very easy to install. Combined with a scratch resistant and easy to clean surface, laminate is low maintenance and hygienic.




Bamboo is one of the most popular trends at the moment, helping to transform any space with a low environmental impact. With an individual look different to any other hard flooring, bamboo is a real style statement and offers a distinctive finish and texture while incredibly hardwearing and versatile.




Setting the record when it comes to choice, vinyl offers a number of installation options and an even larger number of styles. Vinyl can help to recreate natural flooring materials such as wood or stone at a fraction of the price, and is available in a number of water and scratchproof options.




Today’s floor tiles preserve the splendour and artistry of their Roman roots to help create a truly timeless look. Versatile and available in a wide range of colours, styles and sizes, they are perfect for the whole house, especially open plan homes, helping to create a canvas that seamlessly blends with any décor.
