Choosing the flooring for your new construction home can be so exciting. With a plethora of great options to choose from, and an opportunity to customise the look and feel of each room to your exact liking, starting from scratch is rewarding.

Laminate Flooring supplied and installed by Phoenix Flooring Limited, Bristol

Is Laminate Flooring the Right Choice for You?

Laminate floors provide the look of various flooring materials, including hardwood, stone, and brick, but at a fraction of the cost.

They are available in more textures, patterns, styles, and colours than traditional flooring, and they are more resistant to scratches, dents, and stains. However, you still need to take care to prevent spills and clean up liquids instantly to avoid warping and discoloration.

You should use a soft mop when cleaning the floor as it will help prevent hard particles from scratching the surface. You should also only use gentle cleaners diluted in water to clean the floor, which also helps protect the floor’s surface.

Vinyl flooring, which is available in floor tiles and vinyl planks, provides a sleek and modern feel for a new construction home; this is suitable for a wide range of decor schemes. Vinyl floors are also available in various colour combinations. And because they are waterproof and damage resistant, they provide a durable choice for high-traffic areas.

Regularly sweeping the floor and thoroughly rinsing the floor after mopping it can help keep vinyl floors free of detergent and dirt build-up, which can cause them to become lackluster over time.

Vinyl floors are also vulnerable to scratching, so avoid dragging heavy objects across the floor.

Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) fitted at Bloor Homes Evesham by Phoenix Flooring Limited, Bristol
Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) - is different from other vinyl goods in the way it’s manufactured and in its overall aesthetics. It can precisely replicate the character, graining and look of real hardwood. It is the fraction of the cost of real wood and stone flooring. LVT meets safety requirements for flammability, slip resistance and many other codes.

LVT is an affordable alternative, bringing luxury designs to your home for significantly lower prices. Durability – designed from extremely robust materials, it is built to withstand pressures of a commercial environment. Excessive traffic, flame resistant and exposure to moisture; there is not much this cannot endure. Warmth – Unlike tiled and wood flooring, LVT provides a warmth underfoot whilst the thickness of the tile feels cushioned under your feet. LVT is compatible with under floor heating. LVT is significantly quieter than tiles and laminate. LVT – simple cleaning with a damp mop will suffice.  If a piece of LVT gets damaged, it’s much easier to replace, you do not need to replace the whole floor.

Finally, when is Carpet the Best Choice?

Carpet is a common choice for homeowners who want warmth and coziness in their space; it is available in a range of fabrics and colours to suit various tastes. Carpet provides noise reduction, which makes it an excellent choice for upper-level floors, hallways, and play areas.

To care for carpet flooring, you should first begin with a quality carpet, which helps ensure it wears well. Regularly vacuuming carpet will help the fibers from accumulating dirt (which can cause the rug to become dull and dank) in high-traffic areas.

You should have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once annually. This will keep the carpet in pristine condition for years to come.

In the end, when selecting flooring for your new construction home, you should be sure they complement your lifestyle. Also, they should go well with your decor. Ensure that you end up with stylish and functional flooring that you can be happy with for years.
