 How your Choice of Flooring Affects the Look and Feel of a Room 



When it comes to creating your perfect home getting the interior right is vital. Whilst outdoor living is becoming more popular, the majority of us still spend most of our time indoors. Therefore, getting the look and feel of the inside of your home right is a priority.


A big part of doing so is choosing the right type of flooring. Your floors are a big feature of your home, so this is something that you simply cannot afford to get wrong.


Flooring affects how big a room looks

One of the biggest impacts your choice of flooring has on the way your room looks is that it affects how big or small a room looks. For example, if you select narrow strips for a wooden floor, that are less than 3 inches wide, the room will seem far smaller than it would if you choose planks ...

 Absolutely Flawless Flooring 



Are you looking for an affordable way to bring new life to your floors? Then vinyl flooring might be the solution you have been waiting for. Tough, durable, easy to clean and even easier to fit, vinyl flooring has many advantages. 

With vinyl flooring bathroom spaces can have a waterproof base. Likewise, with vinyl kitchen surfaces are easy to clean in the event any spillages occur - simply wipe down and it looks good as new. Vinyl flooring tiles are easy to lay and stick down, allowing you to cover large spaces for little expenditure. Alternatively, sheet vinyl flooring is simply cut to the required size with little fuss.

However you want your floors to look, whether you fancy a traditional or contemporary style, there is a vinyl type to suit.

 How to maximise the beauty of your Home with Wood Flooring 



Most of us would agree that finding the beauty in our homes can be tough. Often we find ourselves living in homes with uninspired architectural design, and it's left to us to find the touches that can make it special and unique. Ensuring the exterior and interior are pleasing to the eye can become a full-time job in some properties. Sometimes we need to remodel as well as redecorating to make an ordinary house into a beautiful home.


Choosing a flooring material depends on the room you want to redecorate. For example, a carpet would be ideal in the bedroom and living room, tiles in the bathroom and kitchen, laminate wood flooring in the hallway, dining room, kitchen etc.  I love the latest trend; porcelain tiles that looks like floor boards - this way you can use tiles in the kitchen and wooden flooring in the dining / living room - ...

 Top tips on exterior wood care

Washing

A wide variety of cleaning agents are available for everything from maintenance washing and algae removal to strong facade cleaners which will effectively dull old paint in preparation for fresh paint coats. We recommend wetting the surface with a garden hose first to prevent cleaning agents from absorbing into exposed wood. Never use high pressure washers as they can damage the wood or shoot water into joints. A garden hose with a scrubber attachment is a great tool for facade maintenance.

Protection

Always cover windows, gutters, foundation and plants around the house before washing and painting facades. Sikkens Cetol Filter 7 Plus is highly durable with a medium build for a translucent, satin finish that brings out the natural beauty of the grain underneath. It will preserve your timber against the damaging effects of sunlight and weathering too. Sikkens Cetol HLS Plus is a low build, solvent-based, semi-gloss woodstain, it is ideal for using on exterior softwood ...

 Vinyl, Low Cost and Lovely 


php/Vinyl-flooring-289.jpg

Sure, you love the look of natural stone and ceramic tile in the bathroom, but you don't love the cost. If you want an alternative that's easy on the budget, low-maintenance, and comfortable underfoot, turn to vinyl. Water-resistant and antimicrobial, vinyl is available in hundreds of colours, patterns, and designs. It's fairly easy to install (chances are you can do it yourself) and today's styles offer enhanced realism. It's warmer to the touch than tile, a plus for winter mornings, and has a cushioned feel that reduces leg fatigue. And if you knock a vase of flowers off the vanity, it probably won't break. Most manufacturers offer unique features for stain protection, cushioning, durability, and antimicrobial properties.


Types of Vinyl Flooring

Choose from three basic types of vinyl floor options for the bath:

Sheet vinyl. This seamless option is a favourite for high-traffic baths that tend to get ...
