Being a first-time homeowner is exciting and overwhelming in equal measure. Between collecting samples and creating mood boards, organising moving dates and budgeting – it can seem like a whirlwind that doesn’t let up until you spend your first night in your new place.
The chances are, you will want to make your mark on the new house, whether that means a full renovation or just adding some personal touches here and there. But where do you begin? At WJD Flooring, we believe that there’s no better place to start the redesign of a room than with the floor. From luxurious fluffy carpets to stylish sleek vinyl, the choices are vast and there’s certainly a lot to think about – but that’s where we come in!
Why should flooring be the first thing you think about?
We understand that flooring might not seem like the most important part of your new home – but trust us when we say that the perfect flooring can stand alone as a feature or enhance the other design elements you’ve got going on in your space.
Our team of experts can guide you in picking the perfect floor for your room size, décor, and lighting. –We also offer a fitting service, giving you one less thing to think about.
How are you going to use the space?
If you’re lucky enough to be moving into a home that’s already kitted out with your ideal flooring – then congratulations! However, the likelihood is that you’re faced with the last owner’s taste in flooring, and for you it’s not quite fitting the bill.
It can be all too easy to let your imagination run away with you as you picture all the different things you could do with your new home – but we recommend that before anything else you consider first how you will be using the space.
Is it going to be a children’s nursery or your home office? A dining room or living room? These things are really important factors when it comes to guiding you towards the ideal flooring, and it can also work as an effective way to compartmentalise all the things you want to do with the house.
Have realistic expectations
The excitement of owning your first home and finally having the freedom to decorate exactly how you like is one of the best parts of becoming a homeowner. But it’s important not to get carried away when it comes to big investment pieces such as flooring.
If you have your eye on a luxurious white carpet for your front room, that’s great – but have you considered the durability of such a feature? Whilst it may be the perfect addition right now, in a year or two, will it still be the right fit?
Do you plan to grow your family in the near future? If so, consider how your flooring will hold up against sticky hands and unexpected spills. Likewise, a family with pets may prefer to opt for wooden or vinyl flooring which will be easier to maintain and keep clean.
Perhaps the most important thing that you will consider when redecorating your new home is budget. Afterall, we can only live within our means – and flooring is often one of the biggest investments you will make in your home.
That’s why we offer a huge variety of affordable and luxury flooring options, at highly competitive prices. So that no matter what your particular budget is, you can still come away with your dream floor.
