Flooring to modernise your home

If you are looking to modernise your home this summer or change the décor you need to think about all the different flooring options that are now available to you.

Carpet seems to have been thrown onto the waste pile in recent years as people have opted for hardwood, laminate or tiled flooring.

The consumer has moved away from carpet as it is less hygienic and it can be ruined if something is spilt, especially if it is light in colour.

These days it is very rare to find carpet down as flooring for a bathroom or kitchen however, where hardwood or rubber flooring has been used people often like to add a rug as a feature.

Depending on the style of your kitchen there are many options available for both the colours and materials.

Sisal and Jute fibres are often a good choice on hard flooring surfaces because they are less likely to slip. These fibres are also best for use within a kitchen as they do not hold dirt. Another good tip would be to use an anti-slip underlay to stop your mat from slipping.

  2. That is actually a very good idea...wood maintenance is much easy against a carpet maintenance...with children in the house wood sounds like a relief.But expensive isn't it?
