Choosing the best flooring for your conservatory

The addition of a conservatory to your home can add value and style – not to mention a great place to bask in the summer sunshine. But are you making the most of your conservatory with the best flooring?

 

At WJD Flooring, we specialise in high quality flooring for the home and office, working with some of the biggest names to offer you variety and quality no matter what you’re looking for. So, when it comes to fitting your conservatory with perfect flooring – you’ve come to the right place!

 

What are the benefits of adding a conservatory to your home?

 

Whether you’re looking to add a dining room, a playroom or a study – conservatories are versatile spaces that can be used in a multitude of ways. However, once you’ve decided on how you want to use this space, it’s important that the flooring you choose will be fit for purpose.

 

The right flooring can add value, taking a ‘good’ room and transforming it to your favourite part of the home – but how else can flooring enhance your conservatory? Here’s just a few benefits:

 

  • Improve the overall aesthetic of the room
  • Add comfort and warmth
  • Durable and hardwearing
  • Modern and stylish
  • Easy to maintain

 

So, what are your best options when it comes to conservatory flooring? Today, we are talking about three of the most popular options to help you decide which is best for your needs.

Carpet, Choosing the best flooring for your conservatory

If you’re looking to create a warm, homely space – then carpet is likely to be your best bet. Depending on how you intend to use your conservatory, a good quality carpet can be a relaxing, soft and reliable addition. Other benefits include:

  • Lots of variety in colour and texture                          
  • Neutral
  • Sound-proof
  • Comfortable
  • Hardwearing
  • Low-cost

 

However, it is also important to consider the downsides to fitting carpet in your conservatory. If you have pets or children, it is important to bear in mind that carpet is much harder to keep clean compared to vinyl and laminate – so these are certainly things to think about when making your decision. It’s also important to remember that, whilst carpet is a great addition to add warmth during the colder months, in the summer a carpeted floor may result in a less comfortable space.

 

The best conservatory uses where carpet makes the perfect match:

  • Family room
  • Extra living room
  • Home office

Vinyl

 

Vinyl has long been a popular flooring option in residential properties thanks to its versatility and hardwearing properties.

 

But why is vinyl such a trusted flooring solution? Here are some of the main advantages of fitting vinyl in your conservatory:

  • Vinyl reflects light, so it is a great way of brightening up a small or dark conservatory
  • Easy upkeep – vinyl is incredibly easy to keep clean and tidy
  • Safe and non-slip
  • Plenty of choice with a variety of colours and finishes
  • Hardwearing
  • Affordable
  • Highly moisture resistant

 

There is one major downside that can occur when fitting vinyl into your conservatory which you should consider, and this is that UV rays over time can cause vinyl flooring to fade. If this is a concern, there are things you can do to combat this, such as fitting blinds to prevent direct UV from reaching the floor during the day.

Laminate

Last but by no means least is laminate flooring. Laminate is easy to fit, looks wonderful and is simple to maintain – making it a popular option for those looking to fit a long-lasting flooring to their home.

When it comes to fitting laminate flooring for your conservatory, you can choose from an array of colours and finishes, and enjoy a host of other benefits, including:

 

  • Modern and stylish
  • Cost-effective
  • Easy to clean
  • Easy to install
  • Replicates the appearance of real wood flooring, at a fraction of the cost
  • Heat and UV resistant

 

Of course, there are certain limitations with laminate flooring which you should consider. The main one being that laminate is not very water resistant so excess moisture can easily seep into laminate flooring and cause swelling. It is also quite slippery and so could pose a risk if care isn’t taken.
