What Should You Consider When Installing New Floors?

When you’re planning to transform your flooring, there are many factors to take into account to ensure that you choose the right type of flooring for you and your family. From checking its durability to ensuring that it reflects the style of your home, here are some questions that you should ask yourself before you install new flooring.

Should you choose carpets or flooring?

One of the first questions that most homeowners ask themselves is whether they should choose carpets or flooring within their home. After all, each option has its own benefits. You should install carpets if you want soft and warm flooring that your family can use without injury and if you’re going to give your family home a comfortable atmosphere that deflects noise. The carpets that we provide at A Flooring Boutique come in a range of bright colours that can rejuvenate the appearance of your home and turn your rooms into relaxing and creative spaces.

However, if you want your home to be more of a professional space, you should consider swapping your carpeting for wooden, vinyl or laminate flooring. Not only can this flooring look luxurious, but it is also easy to clean and maintain over its lifespan. Wooden flooring is also the best option if you intend to have underfloor heating and can even increase the value of your home when you come to sell it.

How will you fit your flooring?

Although some homeowners decide that the best option is to fit their carpets themselves, you should consider booking a carpet fitting, as this will help you avoid many of the common issues that crop up when installing your flooring, such as uneven treads. Additionally, instead of spending a lot of money to rent out equipment for the duration of the project, hiring professional carpet fitters enables you to access all the correct equipment to fit your carpet and integrate this seamlessly with the rest of the flooring in your home. They will also be able to sand and re-varnish your floor to a high standard, as well as provide you with the care instructions that can help you to maintain the appearance of your flooring in the future.

How can you choose durable flooring?

Flooring is usually one of the first parts of your house to get damaged because it is used every day. To ensure that your floor lasts for a long time, you should choose durable materials.

How do you keep your floors clean?

However, it is essential to ensure that you install flooring that is easy to keep clean at all times. Wooden flooring is one of the best options when it comes to floor care, as all you have to do is to wash it with soap and water and leave it to dry. You can also invest in different types of floor cleaners to help you to maintain your wooden flooring for many years to come. That said, the carpets that we offer are just as easy to clean: all you have to do is vacuum them regularly and deep clean them twice a year, and they’ll look as good as the day we installed them.
