Nothing will give your London home that “wow” factor like beautiful wooden floors. Yet those good looks come at a cost; wooden floors can cost up to three times as much as carpet per square metre and up to nine times more than vinyl flooring.
Yet while the initial cost may be higher, wooden floors can increase the resale value of London property; research shows that home buyers around London are willing to pay more for homes with hardwood flooring. Wooden floors are reasonably easy to clean and maintain. They can also be refinished and sanded multiple times, which makes them longer lasting and a great investment.
Having worked with housing developers and estate agents in and around London, we understand that houses with wooden floors not only sell for more money, but are also easier to sell and are generally sold much faster.
The most attractive feature of carpet to many of our London clients is that it is soft. It feels great beneath bare feet, with a padded, comforting feeling. As carpet suppliers and installers, we often install carpet in living room areas, as a way of promoting an atmosphere of comfort and relaxation.
Carpet is an insulator, which makes it warmer than wooden floors and vinyl flooring; something that is especially welcome on chilly winter mornings. Carpet acts very much like a blanket for your feet.
Vinyl flooring is a great option for all tastes and budgets in and around London. It is the least expensive option of the three types of flooring mentioned in this article. Yet, in addition to being highly affordable, vinyl also offers style and durability.
When paired with the proper subflooring, vinyl flooring is extremely resistant to scratches, dents and stains. Taking pride of place in our vinyl flooring range are a number of premium, eco-friendly Amtico flooring solutions.
