The right kind of floor covering is an important decision, adding the perfect final touch to your building project. A good balance can be achieved between beauty and practicality these days with modern products, designed to look good while delivering excellent performance. Your flooring will always be the thing that grabs the attention, especially near an entrance, and your choice in this area will ensure an immediate impact for visitors.

Apart from the look, things like underfloor heating suitability, and safety should be considerations. For instance, shiny, highly polished floors might look amazing, but can be treacherous where there are youngsters or older people.

Flooring choices include:


Vinyl has been the ‘go to’ flooring solution for many years, with the early version linoleum or lino gracing many a kitchen and hallway. Loved for it’s functional and versatile edge, the vinyl of today is far superior, with hard wearing textures and gorgeous designs and colours. It can perfectly simulate stone, wood and other expensive materials, and the affordable price means you can chop and change as often as you like.


Carpet has never lost it’s appeal, mixing warmth, luxury and comfort with stain resistance, good looks and durability. Synthetic carpets or man made/wool blends are very popular, as they are long lasting and easily cleaned. They also come in an array of textures, colours, treads and designs.

Wood flooring

You can’t beat wood for a timeless, natural feel, and a variety of styles exist including parquet and Scandinavian-style blonde wood. Timbers like oak, ash, maple, cherry and walnut, all have their own individual qualities and will enhance your home no end.


Easy clean, pocket friendly and low maintenance, laminate flooring is great for busy homes and is smart and hassle free. Laminate is suitable for most rooms in the home and will transform living rooms, dining rooms and hallways.

Marble, Granite & Stone

These natural materials look extremely elegant in any home, although they are pricey, and do have a reputation for being difficult to maintain. While they are long lasting, they can be damaged or chipped, and frequently hold onto stains. However, they age well, and are a viable option if properly sealed and resealed regularly.
