Choosing Your Flooring

Not sure what to choose? Here are our top tips when deciding which flooring to go with:

  1. Consider the room – how much do you use the room? Some rooms will receive more wear than others i.e. hall stairs and landing.
  2. Are there any particular fabrics or existing décor that needs to be matched? We suggest choosing your flooring first and installing it last.  Remember it is one of the most expensive furnishings of a room. 
  3. What type of flooring do you feel is suitable for your floor? A wood floor, a tile, a plain or patterned carpet, a twist or a texture?
  4. How long do you want the flooring to last? Is it a long term investment or a quick fix?
  5. What is your budget? Our costs are competitive and we cater to all budgets. Remember to take into consideration the cost of underlay, fitting, moving furniture and uplifting existing flooring and other materials.
  6. Let us do the measuring. Accuracy is an essential part of the process. We have a team of experienced measurers/estimators who can come out to your home to accurately measure your flooring for that perfect fit!
  7. Samples are a great way to see the product in your own environment and in its natural lighting and can make a huge difference in the long run. We can provide you with samples of the flooring you are considering.
  8. If you are purchasing carpet, ensure you also purchase a new underlay. A new underlay will prolong the life of your carpet by up to 40% as well as providing extra comfort.
  9. Protect your investment with a stain inhibitor. Intec stain inhibitor forms an invisible shield around the fibres of the carpet, keeping them looking good and making it easier to clean and care for your carpet. Intec is also environmentally friendly.
  10. Buy what you can afford, but try not to substitute on quality. As with everything in life, you get what you pay for and flooring is no exception to the rule!
