An Introduction To Flooring
There are so many floors out there, and we understand that choosing the right one can seem overwhelming. That’s why, to help guide you through the process, we’ve created the easiest, clearest introduction to flooring on the internet!
The Room Compatibility Chart
First, let’s start with the room you’re covering. In practice, most floors can go in most rooms, but some need to be looked after more than others. To explain this, we’ve created the grid below. Simply pick your room(s) and see which floors are best for you!
Good to Go!
Mop up spills quickly, or use one of our range of Quickstep waterproof laminates which offer a fully waterproof laminate floor.
Lacquered floors offer more protection than oiled floors, but all spills should be dried as quickly as possible.
Only Coir and Sisal should be used on stairs, whereas Jute and Seagrass should be avoided.
Our Range Of Floors
Not sure which type of flooring is right for you? Read our guides to find out the key differences between each type of flooring.
Solid Wood Floors
Solid wood floors are cut from a single, beautiful piece of timber. This makes for a pure, simple and authentic wooden floor. Because of their sensitivity to moisture and heat, they aren't suitable for every room but, given their ability to be sanded many times, they can last for generations.
Laminate floors look just like real wood or stone, but the image you see is actually a photo. This means that they can come in a wide range of visually stunning designs which can be shaped as planks or tiles. These floors are highly resistant to splashes and scratches which makes them fantastically versatile.
All of our carpets are made from completely natural, renewable materials, making them incredibly environmentally friendly. Natural carpets are softer than our solid floors and much tougher than synthetic fibres. They have a uniquely rustic look, and look fantastic in a range of homes.
