When you’re planning which sort of flooring to put in any space, often your first thought will be aesthetic. How is that particular design going to look in my home or my place of work, and will the colours available fit in with my existing décor? |
The thing to remember with floors though, is that they have to put up with a lot of abuse. Things will get spilt and dropped, there will be mud walked into it, and there will be a lot of people walking through there, in all sorts of different footwear. While many people try and enforce a ‘no shoes in the house’ rule, these often become hard to keep up, especially as the floor gets older and you become less conscious of how it’s being treated.
You should think about which room you’re flooring, as this will dictate and limit some of your choices, at least to a degree. While Flotex flooring and vinyl is often suitable for most rooms, hardwood and carpet certainly are not, so it’s important that you’re able to make an informed decision. In a bathroom or a kitchen for example, the flooring will have to be able to deal with a moist and warm environment. Kitchens are often high traffic areas, with people walking around preparing food, socialising, or just walking through into your home. It’s important to choose flooring which is up to the challenge, and which won’t scratch or mark easily.
Hallways can be particularly tricky because they’re walked through constantly, and are often the first place people will walk through. This means that even if you’re very careful with the no shoes rule, there’s bound to be a few incidents. Choose something like Flotex flooring which is easy to clean as this is the best way of getting a finish which will consistently look fantastic. Flotex flooring is guaranteed for up to 20 years so if you have any problems you can replace it without a quibble. It’s definitely a good option if you’re not totally sure it will be up to the challenge of your home.
Flotex flooring is one of the few products that you can use throughout your home and business without a problem. It can be wet cleaned thanks to its waterproof backing, and it just needs the hover run over it once a week to keep it looking as good as new.
