The best flooring options for cold homes
As we have moved into a new year, lots of us will be looking around our homes and wondering how we can revamp them for a fresh look in time for spring. You don’t have to spend a huge amount of time or money to give a room a makeover; for example, one quick and relatively affordable way to do this is to replace the flooring with vinyl. If your idea of vinyl flooring is the ugly brown stuff that was so popular as a kitchen floor covering in the 70s, think again. Vinyl has come a long way and is now much-loved as a versatile and stylish flooring option.
Here are some of the top vinyl flooring trends for 2020:
This has been around for a while, but technological developments mean it is now more realistic than ever. Have you always fancied parquet flooring but could never afford it? Why not opt for an ultra-realistic vinyl version instead? Vinyl is hardwearing and durable, so it is perfect in almost all rooms in the home. Are you longing for a wooden floor in your kitchen but know it is just not practical? Vinyl could well be the answer. If you are dubious about how closely vinyl can resemble wood, visit our flooring showroom and see for yourself. It is almost impossible to tell apart from the real thing, even close up.
One of the ways in which manufacturers have improved the appearance of vinyl flooring in recent years is by working with different techniques to create the perfect texture. While you might want completely smooth vinyl in some rooms of the home, such as in a bathroom or utility room, textured vinyl can often be the way to go if you want a warmer, more homely and more rustic finish. Whether you favour wood or stone effect vinyl, the texture is key in making it look authentic.
Do you love the look of intricately tiled floors but budget constraints mean there is no chance of recreating the looks you see on Instagram in your own home? Don’t worry, as vinyl could come to your rescue. There are some stunning vinyl flooring options on the market these days and you will find every pattern, style and colour combination you could imagine. You can choose anything from pretty pastel patterns to bold monochromatic designs to finish off your room to perfection. Even better, vinyl is easy to fit and many homeowners will be able to do it themselves without specialist tools or knowledge.
