Between tiles and lino: Which is Better?

Posted on February 16, 2017 at 12:00 am

When one is constructing a bathroom floor, there are two main options to choose from. The ceramic tiles and the linoleum. We haven’t included wood because it’s often avoided due to being expensive and susceptible to damage by water.

To choose between the two, one has to consider the benefits for each.

Ceramic Tiles

They last longer compared to the linoleum type and rarely crack unless on impact with a very hard object.

They also have a higher elegance magnitude compared to the linoleum type whilst they are available in a variety of colours, sizes and patterns.

Linoleum

They are comparatively cheap, easier to install and very easy to maintain as they only require regular mopping and sweeping. They are also comparatively softer on feet. That said, linoleum floors do not last for long like the ceramic tiles and that’s why it’s a cheaper product, so if your budget allows, we’d recommend you go for ceramic.

Concrete indoors for your flooring

Posted on November 21, 2016 at 4:19 am

A new up and coming interior look for your kitchen or even hallway is a quirky flooring of concrete. Yes! concrete flooring is taking over by storm, polished concrete of course. This is a really reliable flooring solution.

Polished Concrete flooring is durable, lasting many years without the maintenance of other types of flooring such as wooden floorboards needing regular care or carpets wearing thin.

Another great reason to opt for this style of flooring is that it’s easy to clean, it doesn’t get those stubborn stains that carpets soak up, or chips and dent, laminate flooring can acquire. Simply mop and vacuum as regularly as needed, and it really doesn’t require any more maintenance.

Just remember once it is down it is a pretty permanent flooring choice. Getting it removed would require chiselling up the solid flooring.

Polished concrete is a unique look for your home, pricing can vary but is definitely not a budget flooring option.

There are a number of wood flooring choices in the market today, but oak seems to be the most versatile out of all the timbers available in the market. Oak floorboards can brighten a house, by adding to it warmth, charm and colours. It has also been used for many centuries in the British flooring industry and today many companies specialise by offering limitless options of oak flooring. The following are some of the top advantages for people considering investing in oak floorboards for their home.

Attractive appearance

Oak flooring provides a warm and beautiful appearance, that can improve the overall value of a home. Moreover, it blends easily with a number of different decorations and it is also resistant to wear and tear. There are a number of varnishes, stains and finishes that are available in order to match every taste, and the colour of oak naturally deepens with age. Unlike carpeting, these special kinds of floors do not collect and conceal any dust or dirt and homeowners can clear very easily their surface. In addition, it doesn’t need to be replaced every 5-6 years, as other kinds of floors. (more…)
