Flooring For the Heart of the Home

When you are building or renovating your home The Flooring Room is on board for advice and planning tips. We know it can be confusing sorting through the swathes of information out there about the best flooring and carpet, and we want to help you make the right decisions. It’s important to get your flooring choices right the first time – and to make sure your flooring or carpet gets laid when it’s most appropriate – you don’t want to be dealing with a brand new damaged floor after your tradies leave the reno!

What’s Cooking!

One of the most important rooms in the house when you are choosing flooring is the kitchen. We love to spend time together cooking and chatting and eating, and when we entertain it’s great to be able to invite family and friends into a room that looks modern and streamlined while keeping that warmth we want for the heart of the home. Your kitchen choices are ones you want to carry you through for years, so it’s well worth consulting a professional about your flooring – figuring out what’s going to last and still look good is key.

Timing Is Everything

Kitchen jobs are quite specific, and when you are planning this room there certainly needs to be quite a bit of forethought about the placement of appliances and sinks and about accessibility for less mobile folks. You must also take into account the fact that this room can get messy and hot, and that you are often times dealing with liquids and fats. All of these factors can add up to very particular flooring requirements, and a really targeted idea of the best time to actually get your floor coverings down to accommodate dishwashers and fridges.
