It’s been decided. You need new floors. It’s always been at the back of your mind, but now is the time to act upon it. But, as easy as it is to say “I’ll go out and buy new floors today”, there are a few things you need to consider before actually purchasing the floor. In today’s blog post, we are looking at the top 6 things you need to consider before purchasing your new flooring.

6 Steps for Choosing your New Floor

1. Space 

The first thing you need to consider is probably the most important; where do you need your new floors? Is it the kitchen, bathroom, living room, or dining room? The question of the size and shape of the room need to be thought of as well. Does the room have a lot of natural light or is it quite a dark room? Depending on the answers to these questions, they will assist you in picking out the right type of flooring you’re looking for.

2. Type of Flooring 

Now that you know what room in your home you need new flooring for, it’s time to think about the type of flooring you want. Are you looking for solid timber flooring, floating laminate or maybe even cork flooring? Check out our products of flooring to help you choose the floor that’s right for you.

3. Look

Knowing the look you want to achieve in your home will also help you choose the type of flooring you’re after. When considering the look of your home, think about the style of your home, and what you want your new floor to say about you.

4. Colour

What colour do you want to incorporate into your new room? Think about the colours already featured in your home and make sure that your new floor will balance those pre-existing colours out.

5. Practicality

Is your new floor going to be in a busy area of your home? Will there be a lot of foot traffic? Will there be possible food and drink spills? If this is a possibility for your floor, then you need to install a durable floor. Bamboo flooring is a great option for not only its durability and aesthetics but also because it’s an environmentally friendly option.

6. Needs

When considering your new floor, you need to consider what you need the room for. Is it the busiest room in your home, or the quietest? How much foot traffic will this room see?
