When deciding on the décor for any room, it’s essential to get the fundamentals sorted as these will provide the basis you need to create your perfect room. No matter what your budget is or the size or shape of your property, when it comes to planning your rooms, start from the bottom up and establish the perfect canvas for your interior styling; without doubt, a good floor is absolutely vital. Get that right and the rest will be easy!
Laminate flooring is a great alternative to both carpets and floorboards in any home. Whether you're kitting out your kitchen, revamping your bathroom or going to town on your lounge, thinking about and investing in great-looking flooring will set the pace for your overall scheme and really tie your design vision together. It doesn't have to break the bank either as Carpetright offers a wealth of quality laminates in a range of fantastic finishes that will suit so many styles and shapes of room.
Stylish & Practical
The varied amount of choice on offer means you can go for any look you like. Be bold and go for a dark oak design for a sleek, ultra contemporary kitchen or lounge – the overall effect makes a stunningly glamorous statement. Lighter oak laminate flooring has a rich and warm feel that is ideal for welcoming hallways and convivial social spaces such as dining rooms. While the aesthetic appeal for both styles is obvious, this choice of flooring also serves a practical purpose as laminate has easy-clean properties that make it ideal for these hardworking spaces. It provides the durability of hardwood without the necessary maintenance and expense of upkeeping the natural materials.
Embrace your inner interior designer when it comes to flooring and be confident. For example, that a-la-mode bleached blonde wood style isn't just for the hipsters. In fact, if you opt for a nearly white, limed oak, white wash or loft white finish you too can get a super cool designer look. These neutral tones add a bright yet calming effect to your rooms and you'll also be safe in the knowledge that the laminate's robust surface can take spillages and other mishaps – ideal if you love your style but have little ones or animals who like to cause mischief.
Great For Bathrooms
While a wood finish is lovely in communal spaces, create the ultimate spa retreat vibe in the bathroom. Again, this is where laminate can be your friend – instead of forking out on expensive cold marbles and hard stone that is difficult to clean and may crack, go for a lightweight, wipe-clean option with a cool stone appearance and the latest thin contrast grout effect for the last word in relaxation chic.
So if you're looking for a wealth of inexpensive options both in terms of design and durability, give laminate a go – you'll be amazed at the results.
