A modern twist to your flooring, with WKND decor tips

Are you unsure which flooring is best for your home? Here’s your guide to figuring out which materials are right for your house, as well as what you’d use on a daily basis.

Let’s start with the basics: wood. Hard wood, parquet, vinyl, melamine, and several other forms of wood flooring are available in a variety of styles and colours. Wood is one of the most well-known products used in homes for kitchens, bedrooms, dining rooms, bathrooms, and other areas. There are various types of wood that can be used depending on your needs, budget, and what is best for a specific room. Wood flooring is a safe investment for your home because it is durable and suitable for everyday use.

Your bathroom is one of the most critical areas because it needs water-resistant flooring so that you don’t have to replace it every few years. As a result, ceramic or porcelain tiles are recommended because they require little maintenance, are cost-effective, and are water-resistant. Ceramic tiles, on the other hand, are available in a variety of colours and patterns. If you want to give your bathroom a more modern look, you can use two different styles of flooring — one for the vanity and toilet area, and another for the shower area.

Marble is a very rich and luxurious looking flooring. Adding marble flooring to your room not only gives it a rich appearance, but it also gives it a cooling effect and modern look to your space. Using light colours for your marble flooring will help make your home appear larger and more elegant. The living room, dining room, and bedrooms are the right places to use marble flooring. Calacatta marble is one of the most elegant marbles available, with a polished appearance.

Porcelain tile is a good outdoor flooring choice that looks different and unique from turf and wood decking. It can be used for your drive way flooring. They are available in a variety of colours, textures, and patterns. This tile will give your outdoor space a clean appearance. Porcelain needs very little upkeep; it is usually cleaned or mopped. If you want to change your outdoor flooring more often, porcelain tiles are a good choice because they last for years.

We all know that living in a house with an outdoor space necessitates grass flooring, but it can be difficult to keep up with. As a result, turf is a viable choice due to its resemblance to grass in look and feel. The best part about turf flooring is that it does not fade with time. It’s a very cost-effective solution. Turf helps you to build a lovely look for your outdoor space and balconies.

As your flooring is one of the largest surfaces in your house, it is a good idea to invest in it because it is something you can use every day and can provide you with comfort. It should also give the room a sense of style and aesthetics.
