Carpet vs Wood Flooring: Which to choose?
Updated: Feb 2, 2018
When it comes to designing a home, many people struggle when deciding which type of flooring to choose. Whether you opt for wood flooring, carpet, laminate, vinyl or something from our unique range of tiles; having the right flooring is vital, and makes a huge difference to the comfort and feel of a room.
While there is a wide range of flooring options available, carpet and wood flooring are probably the first two to pop into your mind, and each has their own list of pros and cons. As an interior designer, it’s imperative to understand what your client is looking for, before sourcing the flooring most suited to their needs for the best possible price.
It's a good idea to first think about how you use your space. One of the many great things about hardwood flooring, is its ability to clean far more easily than carpet, (though lots of carpets these days are actually bleach cleanable) which makes it more appealing to customers, especially those with pets or young children! Aside from the convenience, the right wood flooring is effortless and elegant, and has the ability to transform your space.
Is your home a period property? Period properties can often suffer with draughts, and in this case, a stylish carpet will help to create a cosier feel. While there is a huge variety of wood flooring available these days, carpets are extremely versatile when it comes to colour and design, and may be what you need to give your space the ‘WOW’ factor it needs.
Our range of flooring colours should provide you with just what you are looking for, but in order to ensure the floor perfectly matches your interior ideas we also offer a bespoke colour matching and finishing service, allowing you to be as creative as you want. Whichever flooring option you choose, we won’t just sell you a pretty floor, we will also make sure it is practical and is a correct choice for you. Take a look at some of the examples of our flooring installations.
