Your living space

Your living room is one of the most commonly used rooms in your home. You spend considerable time reclining on your favourite settee sipping tea, while your children might be using it to fulfil their adventurous games. At the same time your living room is ideal for hosting parties and different events. With much to look forward to, it is very important to spend time to understand what kind of flooring should be used for when sprucing up your living room.

Teckwood have chosen 4 tips to assist you in choosing the right flooring for your living room.

Durability:This is a probably a one-time investment and the decision to buy the right flooring is imperative. For this reason it’s best to consider the durability of the flooring you are considering, taking into account your investment capabilities and your budget.

Maintenance: Before you invest take into account the maintenance costs associated in keeping your flooring intact. If the maintenance cost is too high, you may want to reconsider your decision. If the budget permits, then why not go for the best? Maintenance is not a one off, so you need to keep this in mind at all times before you invest.

Colour: Depending on the theme of your living room you may want to consider what you think will be the perfect fit. Neutral shades go well with existing decor and our wood tones help to bring the outdoors indoors.

Footfall: This is your last but probably most important consideration. The living room is the hub of your very busy home and as such the footfall will probably be high. If you have children and/or pets those little accidents can be expensive. A more durable water proof option may be the solution.

These are some of the tips which can help you in making that difficult decision become so easy. The type of flooring you eventually decide upon will have a long term impact on you and your family’s home so choose wisely. Contact Teckwood’s friendly sales team for advise on 0800 799 9082.
