The average family home is usually anything but average! As flooring specialists with heaps of industry experience (and heavy-footed families of our own!) we here in the Nagle Flooring studio are happy to use today’s blog entry for a little timely advice on what flooring is best to last through the lifecycle of your home.
Taking into account things like durability, investment, cost of unexpected repair etc, the two best options tend to be wood floors or laminate flooring. Of course, stone floors are always on the table, but they can be very costly to replace, cold and tough on little knees when they trip over their shoelaces (especially when – aged twenty-two – they should know better!)
Natural and engineered wood floors are a great way to add warmth and a classic homey feel to the family household. The floors of most homes suffer a barrage of abuse over the years, and oak wood floors etc are great at resisting damage, never going out of style and fitting with a multitude of different decor styles.
Laminate flooring is a wonderful option for folks who perhaps don’t want to invest in wood flooring for whatever reason. Maybe you don’t intend to live in the house too long, maybe your budget is a little tight, and so on. We only stock top quality laminate flooring that meets our own stringent performance criteria covering durability, finish, long-term damage resistance, replacement cost, ease of fitting and hygiene.
Your home is special. It should be the place where you feel most comfortable, and so should be decorated to your own particular tastes. If decorated well, your home can say a lot about you, and reflect the best of your personality, to create a truly personal space.
One of the most important features of your home is the flooring. Of course on a practical level flooring is very important, and is designed to create a durable surface with can withstand the wear and tear of daily life. However, great floors are also about aesthetics, and a high quality floor can really enhance the quality of a living space.
The best choice of flooring will depend on how your home is decorated, as well as your own personal choice. There are loads of options for flooring out there, and so there is a floor to suit every kind of home, from family homes to bachelor pads.
You first choice is whether you want a carpeted floor or a wooden floor. At Nagle Flooring we love wooden floors, and offer all kinds of floors for all sorts of home. The benefits of wooden flooring are numerous, and they are both visually stunning and easy to care for.
