The family home is a place of magic, it’s where we spend our time watching people growing up, or growing up ourselves. It’s incredibly vital that we ensure our home is just right, and the floor is one of the most important areas.
Flooring comes in many different shapes, sizes and materials. We’re going to show you a few of the options you have in this blog, to help you find the best match for your home.
Engineered wood is one of the most popular family flooring options on the market, it doesn’t only come with an impressive and classy design, it’s also incredibly practical and durable, making it perfect for families. Oak is probably the most popular type of wood, and comes with different finishes and appearances. It has its pro’s, it is incredibly hard wearing, making it ideal for homes with heavy footfall. The only downside is it can damage quite easily, especially with a lacquered finish. Brushed & Oiled is slightly less easily damaged, whereas lacquered is far more water resistant.
Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) is another flooring type with a lot of advantages. It is similar to wood in its design and durability, its upper layer is scratch resistant making it almost impenetrable and child toy proof. It is probably the most underrated flooring type out there, especially for a family home, its practicality doesn’t take away from its style, and it is a very attractive floor. It comes in all shapes and sizes, and comes as individual tiles so you can choose how you want to lay them, and create a number of different designs and aesthetics.
