When thinking of ways to brighten up your living space, it is often a good idea to consider using rugs. They come in all different shapes, sizes and colors so it should be relatively easy to find something to suit your needs. Often the contrast in color between the rug and the floor can look perfectly fitting and it adds a little touch of homeliness into the room.
Do you like your floor? Do you want to change your flooring material? Would you prefer your flooring be more environmentally friendly? Do you wish it was easier to clean? It is important to consider these things before starting construction on your new home or remodeling your current one. By researching your options for flooring material you will be able to find what best suits your needs and wants for your new floor. Of course, first you need to figure out what you need and want. Use the following tips to help you decide on the ideal flooring for you.
Let us start with laminate flooring. There are many different types and most have a wood effect finish but there are ones that mimic ceramic, slate or terracotta and even metals such as copper and brushed aluminium. This is usually installed on a thin piece of foam without nails or glue, which makes installation fairly easy but can create a noisy floor. Laminate floor coverings basically have the following layers:core, laminate and protective foil. The flooring is made from lengths of high density fibreboard (HDF) and they tend to be a locking or tongue and groove versions.
