PURFLEET, England, September 23, 2011 -

Choosing the right type of flooring is an important part of any interior design project. You need to ensure your flooring choice suits your individual needs, lasts a long time and - most importantly - looks good. If you achieve this, your new floor will provide you with the perfect foundation for whatever else you have in store for your room. 

So what type of flooring should you choose - a luxury carpet, hardworking laminate or functional vinyl flooring? Your choice should depend on what room you’re decorating. 

Choosing a New Carpet 

If you want to feel something soft, cosy and warm underfoot then nothing beats carpet. The feeling of warmth and comfort offered by a new carpet makes it the perfect flooring solution for a bedroom, living room and stairway. The wide range of colours, patterns and styles also mean a new carpet is sure to fit into any existing or future décor. 

When shopping for a new carpet, you should also consider carpet remnants as they are a popular and cheaper solution if you have an odd-shaped room in your home. Visit your nearest Carpetright store  to find carpet remnants and offcuts. 

Opting for Vinyl Flooring 

Certain rooms in your home need practical flooring capable of withstanding a substantial amount of traffic or wear. That is why vinyl flooring is perfect for the kitchen and bathroom. 

Capable of withstanding stains, heavy footfall as well as every day wear and tear, vinyl flooring is a perfect match for anyone wanting a practical flooring solution in their home. Vinyl is also water-resistant, making it the perfect for withstanding the effect of water spillage and steam. 

Going for Laminate Flooring 

Laminate flooring is becoming a more popular option for floor buyers. Suitable to multiple rooms in the home, laminate can give your room a modern and stylish look whilst also being practical and durable making it perfect for the kitchen, bathroom, hall or living room.
