How To Choose What Type of Flooring To Install In Your London Place
Are you going to be shopping for new flooring in the upcoming months?
Consider which area of your London house it will be laid down in. Will it be basement flooring, bathroom flooring, backsplash tile, on stairs, living room flooring or flooring for a yoga studio? Will it be installed in a nursery or another location where Americans with Disabilities Act compliant floor covering or special attention may be required?
What Type Of Subfloor Is In Place?
Is it a gypcrete or concrete subfloor? Is the subfloor made from particle board, sterling OSB, or Plywood? Will you be putting it over existing slate flooring, click lock flooring or asbestos tile?
Decide What Are Your Top Priorities For The Floor Covering
If your house is in London ask these questions…
Does the flooring need to be sustainable flooring? Does it need to be a warm floor, a non-toxic, non-outgassing floor? Does it need to be builder direct or a cork flooring sale item? Does it need to be a quiet floor like rubber tile, cork flooring including cork underlayment, or engineered wood floor covering with cork underlayment? Does it need to be right for wet areas like roofing slate or rubber tile? Does it need to be something that looks like wood such as reclaimed wood flooring, bamboo floors, laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, or ceramic tile that resembles wood?
Let’s Take A Flooring Example
Let’s consider floor covering for a London basement with a concrete slab. If your goals are having a warm, comfortable, durable, and quiet floor suitable for kids and occasional guests. Then, our top choice is Eco-friendly Flooring’s cork floating floor planks. This non-toxic cork flooring offers simple cork installation with its click lock flooring tongue and groove system. No glue or nails are required to assemble the planks. These warm floors become even more insulating once you add Eco-Friendly Flooring’s cork underlayment to the mix.
Why Choose a Cork Floor for your London Home?
One extra key feature of cork floor covering that many London homewners may miss—cork is anti-static. This means that dust and pet hair will not cling to the floor. Cork floor maintenance is easy with simple sweeping and vacuuming. The home’s indoor air quality will improve dramatically once cork flooring has been installed.
Cork floor covering is also very forgiving. This means that animal traffic and children traffic on the cork can be hidden with cork’s texture. Small depressions will pop up over time. This is very different from laminate flooring, hardwood floor covering or discount cork flooring, where the indentations would likely be more permanent.
Ultimately, there are a lot of different perspectives from which London couples will enter making a flooring selection. Hopefully with some careful thought about where it is put in, the condition of the subfloor, and top priorities for the floor covering, you will be able to narrow it down to the best fit for your house.
