Flooring for Entryways
Entryways see a lot of foot traffic, so durability is critical here.
Laminate flooring is an excellent choice for entryways, as it stands up well to high traffic and dirt tracked in from outside. The ultra-durable melamine coating found in our laminates makes them exceptionally easy to clean, with a damp cloth usually enough to mop up any spills or debris.
Additionally, with laminate’s scratch resistance, you’ll never have to worry about keys or bags scuffing your entryway floors.
Go for neutral laminate colours like light oak or grey, to really tie in the culmination of your home’s decor, and opt for shades and textures that will mask the appearance of dust and surface-level mess.
Flooring for Hallways
Like entryways, your hallways experience their fair share of footfall, but unlike your entrances, they will rarely need to withstand the grind of outdoor dirt or footwear.
For your hallways, we recommend engineered wood floors. They are still durable, with a thick top layer of real wood that provides a classic look and dampens noise between rooms but can be refinished over time in high-traffic zones where years of constant movement down corridors or over stair landings has worn away the original finish.
Like your entryways, opt for stylish and neutral wood or grey-toned engineered woods to complement your existing decor.
Flooring for Living Rooms
For living rooms, comfort and aesthetics are the most important considerations. This is where you and your family will be spending the most time, watching television, hosting gatherings, and more.
Parquet flooring provides an engaging and inviting look with more durability than most other options. The traditional edge of herringbone parquet, for example, makes a refined statement with its rich timber patterning.
Another great option for living rooms is cork flooring. Naturally soft underfoot, cork absorbs sound and provides insulation at the same time. Style-wise, cork ranges from organic textured looks to convincing wood prints, and like laminate, stands up well to pets and children.
Flooring for Kitchens
Your kitchen demands floors that are durable, water-resistant, and easy to clean.
Engineered wood flooring is a top choice for all of the above. Its layered construction makes it more moisture-resistant than solid hardwoods alone, and its natural hues will easily match any contemporary kitchen interior.
The pure oak found in our range is a great choice for kitchens, as its tannins make it naturally antiseptic. Just be sure to wipe up spills promptly to maintain the hardwood surface over time, and only wet clean once a week using a pH-neutral cleaner to keep the wood in great condition.
Oiled wood floors are a great choice for kitchens, as they can be regularly re-oiled to keep the surface fresh and enable them to stand up to the rigours of a busy kitchen
Laminate flooring is another great option, with its durable melamine coating resisting scratches, stains, and moisture. We recommend opting for laminates with water-resistant locking systems like Natureffect Aqualock for an added level of protection.
Light oak laminates keep an airy, modern vibe. Or pick classic stony wood looks for a more traditional kitchen.
Flooring for Bedrooms
When styling a bedroom with new flooring, warmth, comfort, and noise reduction are go-tos.
Cork flooring excels in all these areas, making it an ideal flooring for your bedrooms. Cork has a softly cushioned feel underfoot, providing comfort whether you’re walking barefoot or jumping out of bed in the morning.
Aside from no cold feet in the morning, cork flooring also offers natural insulation for your home and absorbs noise between floors, helping you to maintain an optimal calmness level at home.
Flooring for Bathrooms
It is no surprise that bathroom floors need to stand up to water and humidity.
For this reason, cork flooring is a great choice, with its durable PVC-free coating and tight 2G locking system that keeps out unwanted moisture. Just be sure never to leave water to stand on the floor for too long, as this can depreciate the finish over time and increase its susceptibility to moisture penetration.
