Ad: Choosing the right flooring for your home

 Choosing the right flooring for your home

Owning your own home comes with its stresses and strains and obviously can be expensive if you want to renovate and update. But my goodness it can be pretty cool when you get to decorate, furnish and style your own place. Choosing the style of your home can of course be tricky but also a way to add your mark to your own space, so it really reflects you and your family and the way you live. That includes colour schemes, furniture styles and of course flooring. It's not just about the look although of course that is important, it's things like do you want to enhance a small room and create an illusion of space or cosy up a large room, making it feel homely, and of course practicalities like is it suitable for the way the room is used.

For me although my home is fairly modern being only 25 years old, we don't have large rooms or high ceilings and the rooms can be dark. That has meant after a trial and error situation we have kept the colour scheme light and bright, with shades of white, throughout the house meaning the rooms flow into each other giving the illusion of space. Furniture is also light in colour with white and pale woods, colour, interest  and personality has been added with photos, prints and soft furnishings. 

Flooring is a big investment and I think can make or break a scheme. Like I said we have learnt through trial and error, and the error for us has been our dining space that although painted in a pale grey/white still feels poky and dark and that I think is because we choose the wrong flooring several years back. The dark floor doesn't flow well with the light flooring in the kitchen and seems to suck all the light from the room.  

The dream flooring for me and that room is an Engineered wood flooring in a pale white oak, taking it throughout the downstairs living space, it would open the room and whole ground floor in terms of light, and is hard wearing and practical.

Of course if you happen to be lucky enough to have large rooms that can take statement colours, the world is your oyster in the terms of colour schemes, but flooring is still important do you want the rooms to flow with the same practical flooring throughout or make a statement with each room. Wood flooring is a practical surface choice great for family homes and those with pets, and can be zoned with furniture, rugs and other furnishings to make it feel cosy in winter.

So in essence when choosing a flooring for your home, Engineered wood flooring is a great choice, and adds character and practicality to your home and comes in so many shades there is bound to be one that fits your style, whether you like light and airy or dark and homely.
