4 Types of Residential Flooring Options

If you’d like to make meaningful changes to your home, your flooring is an excellent place to start. The industry of flooring and wall covering has a £3 billion market value today. 

That means no matter what flooring type, there are plenty of material and design options that you can choose from and no shortage of professionals that can do the work for you. You’re in for a treat no matter what type you’re interested in. 

Below we’ll explain your options so you can do what’s best for your home. 

1. Hardwood Floors

Hardwood flooring is one of the most popular options that people choose when they need to breathe life into an old home. It’s also a sought-after amenity for people buying a new home. 

Buying new floors during a home remodel can improve your property values, make your home more energy efficient, and much more. Hardwood floors are an excellent option because they:

  • Transform your home with a beautiful new appearance
  • Clean easily and are low-maintenance
  • Are among the most durable options available
  • Provide cost-effective flooring
  • Are versatile for any style or interior design

You’ll also have plenty of hardwood options to choose between, including cedar, oak, cherry, and pine. 

2. Cork Flooring

Cork flooring is another popular option for homeowners. These floors are safe, fire-resistant, and durable. UK flooring professionals can stain or colour these floors to match any decor option. 

With cork, you’re getting flooring that is also resistant to termites and mould, making it one that you can use in your household for years to come. 

3. Stone Flooring

Nothing beautifies your home floor and decor and adds elegance like natural stone. Stone provides some of the most durable flooring that you can have for high-traffic areas. It’s one of the hardest materials that you can use in your home, and the stone can be cut and styled however you’d like. 

Stone goes particularly well in kitchens and bathrooms, which are the most high-value rooms in your house. Here are some of the different types of natural stone that London flooring pros can install:

  • Marble
  • Sandstone
  • Quartz
  • Granite
  • Slate

Make sure to find out the best ways to take care of the stone flooring that you choose. 

4. Laminate Flooring

Laminate is an excellent option when you need to buy new flooring in London. Laminate floors consist of different types of synthetic materials that are fused together. It’s engineered into different layers and provides an inexpensive option for homeowners. 

You can buy laminate floors that look just like wood flooring, without the same level of upkeep required.
