You know you want new flooring for your home but you don’t know exactly what you want, or perhaps what you need. After all, there are many types of flooring including laminate, vinyl, solid timber/hardwood, bamboo and engineered flooring. So what should you consider when choosing the most suitable flooring product for your home?
The Type of Property You Live in
The type of property you live in is going to have some say in the best choice of flooring. Do you live in a townhouse, a house, villa or an apartment and is the property owned by you or are you renting?
If you are living in an apartment you might want to bear in mind that you will not be able to choose a solid timber floor. As you will need to pre-drill holes into the concrete slab. By pre-drilling holes into the concrete slab, as common property, it would potentially change the building structure. If living in an apartment or a unit your best choice of flooring is to install a floating floor. The same might apply if you are renting the accommodation. And you might not remain in the same accommodation for very long. Glue down flooring cannot be taken up and taken with you. If you are only living in temporary accommodation. But you want to install a new floor then laminate, bamboo or engineered flooring are the best choices.
On the other hand, if you own your own home and are planning on remaining in it for a lifetime. You can have basically any type of flooring you desire. This means a choice between laminated, bamboo, Vinyl, solid timber hardwood or one of the many premium engineered flooring types on offer.
What Is Engineered Floating Flooring?
The engineered floating flooring is a great choice and a popular one for those who live in an apartment or unit. Where noise needs to be kept to a minimum during installation. But what is a floating flooring system you might be asking? Including Artisan and Terra-Mater and a choice of the click system or the tongue and groove system. All floating floors come with the fitting of underlay to ensure only the best in comfort. And to keep the noise down to a minimum when walking on the floor.
