What’s the first thing you notice when you enter a room? Often considered a décor afterthought, flooring has taken a backseat over the years as elements such as wall colour and lighting take precedence. But, as a significant feature of any room, it pays to pay attention to your floor.
At WJD Flooring, we specialise in helping our customers pick the perfect flooring for their home or office. Over the years we have seen first-hand how pivotal the right decision can be in tying together a space – but what makes the floor so important when designing a room?
Don’t underestimate your investment
If you have bought flooring before, then you will know that it is often the most expensive investment you make for your home. So why do so many of us overlook this crucial part when it comes to planning our interior designs?
We get it, deciding on the colour of your living room walls is important, and getting that perfect shade can take a lot of deliberation – it’s exciting! But picking the perfect flooring doesn’t need to be boring – especially with so many varieties to choose from, and our experts are on hand to guide you through the pros and cons of each flooring type available.
The wrong floor can ruin your interior design strategy
The space, and what you’re trying to achieve, will determine what type of flooring will work best. Rush the decision and go for the wrong type, and you can see all your careful planning and investment go to waste.
There’s no such thing as a ‘bad’ floor, but it’s certainly true that not every type of flooring will suit every type of interior. Are you aiming for a cosy, warm and family-friendly space? If so, then you’re unlikely to achieve the same desired effects with hardwood flooring as you would with luxury carpet tiles.
There’s more to it than colour
When it comes to selecting the perfect fixtures and fittings for your space, the first thing most of us look at is colour. This is often deemed as the most important element of any project, but there’s so much more to consider when it comes to the perfect flooring.
At WJD Flooring, when we work with you to choose the right floor, we look at a number of considerations, including the following:
- Space – are you trying to make your room look bigger or smaller? The space available, and the desired effect will determine which flooring works best.
- Lighting – not every room will be a perfect canvas, and some space will require a little extra help to brighten up. Picking a light flooring can help, but ensuring it is the best material can also help utilise what natural light you do get into the space.
- Purpose – if you are looking for commercial flooring then you may require something hard-wearing, whereas a bedroom floor can benefit from carpet tile or luxury vinyl.
- Requirements – if you have animals, or children then you may require specific things from your flooring. Is it easy to clean? Does it offer an element of soundproofing?
