The task of renovating or upgrading your home flooring shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s important to take time to carefully think about your lifestyle before jumping into flooring choices, for instance. Ask yourself questions such as whether you have time to clean and polish your flooring on a regular basis. And do you actually like doing that anyhow? What about the pets and the kids? If you are planning on renovating your flooring anytime soon, take a look at our tips:
Carpets v tiles: which to choose?
Carpets add warmth to your home and are super comfortable and luxurious. But they do require a lot more cleaning and TLC than tile flooring. They need to be vacuumed, washed and dried and even deep cleaned whereas tiles can do with some basic sweeping and mopping. If anyone in your home is suffering from allergies, then carpets are out, really. Having said that, tiles really can’t beat the luxurious feel of a thick, white carpet in the bedroom. So why not restrict carpets to bedrooms and areas where there isn’t a lot of traffic?
Ceramic tiles – the easy cleaning flooring
When it comes to a tile floor, there are no tiles as easily forgiving, durable and great looking as ceramic. Tile flooring is low maintenance, easy to clean and looks smart once it’s been given a quick wipe-over with the mop. Therefore, just think about all that extra time you’ll have on your hands you would normally have spent cleaning.
The best of both worlds
You could actually have the best of both worlds – a tile floor’s quick and easy cleaning and the warmth of carpeting but investing in a loose rug for your tiled floor. It would be easier to clean than a carpet and, if you only use it during the winter months, won’t even need that much cleaning anyway.
