4 key things to consider when planning your flooring renovation

News Banner
Planning a home renovation is a big thing and that includes a flooring renovation. After being in the carpet and flooring industry for years, we’ve picked up some handy hints and tips about what to consider when planning a flooring renovation.

So here are our top 4 things that you will need to consider when planning out your new flooring!

  • Budget

This is the first place you should start when thinking about any home improvement works. Creating a budget means you know the price range in which you can start looking in. And it also means you won’t have any unexpected costs at the end of the projects.

  • Usage

Another key aspect when it comes to choosing the right flooring type is the usage of the room. Do you want the room have a warm, cosy feeling? Are you going to step onto this floor straight from the outside world? Does it need to be stain resistant eg for a kitchen or play room? These are all things you need to think about when picking your flooring for that specific room. Each room has different needs. For example, you could have a really thick, heavy pile carpet for your bedroom, then choose something like a hard wearing laminate for your dining room and kitchen. You could then bring this style of flooring into your living areas but make them feel warmer with rugs.

  • Design

Depending on your current home interior and your flooring plans, you may need to keep in mind that your flooring could clash with the rest of your decor. However, most flooring tends to be neutral. The majority of it comes in wood tones which means it goes with nearly every colour scheme out there.

  • Installation

If you’re having your flooring installed by professional then this point may not be as prevalent to you as the others. However it’s always important to have good communication with your fitters, especially if you’re having different flooring types in different rooms so they know what is going where.

If you’re planning to fit the flooring yourself, then you might want to look for a flooring style that you will be able to install easily and safely.
