Wooden Flooring Ideal for Durable Homes
Homeowners need to regard their floor as a kind of “sixth wall” and place as much importance to it as they would the others. That is the considered opinion of Marc Atiyolil of Postmedia News who, while writing for Canada.com at the time, gave advice that applies to homes all over the world, including in the United Kingdom.
Atiyolil believes that the choice of flooring can “make or break” the overall look of a room, but that homeowners also need to take into careful consideration how “well trafficked” the area is going to be and ensure that the kind of flooring they choose is durable enough to hold up to the task in the long term. Wooden flooring is highlighted as a particularly good idea for durability, even for floors that may need some wood floor restoration.
“When shopping for floor covering, be sure to ask for the average lifespan of the product. You should also consider products you won’t tire of after the first couple of years. The wonderful thing about wooden floors is that their colour is usually fairly neutral,” Atiyolil explains, “which makes them adaptable to so many different colour schemes.”
Atiyolil’s advice is well timed, given the comments made recently by the editor of Build It, Anna Marie DeSouza, who believes that home improvements are going to be all the rage with householders once spring arrives in the United Kingdom, while Stefan Zachary of Zachary Designs has tipped wood flooring to be the big trend of 2011.
