The first and most important step in your floor-buying journey is to measure the space correctly. If you make a mistake here it could end up being a very costly error as you could end up ordering far too much flooring. A great solution to this is to book a free, no obligation home consultation with one of our flooring experts to make the whole experience that bit easier.
This makes a difference. For example, there’s no need to buy the highest grade laminate or the most hard-wearing carpet for a room with minimal traffic like a bedroom.
It may be that you can reduce the price of your chosen floor by replacing engineered wood with a less expensive laminate which could give you the look you want at a fraction of the cost. Also, vinyl flooring and luxury vinyl tiles are available in so many designs that you may be able to replicate a stone or wood floor with a vinyl alternative.
Remember to budget for underlay. It’s an absolute must and many of us forget this element when budgeting.
Whilst we strongly advise that all flooring is installed by a professional fitter, if you are adept at DIY it may be possible to fit it yourself. We have created some fitting guides to help you should you choose this route.
Always keep an eye on the price of your favourite flooring. Wait for the next sale or promotional period and see if its cost goes down. You could make a substantial saving.
If you have set your heart on some flooring that is maybe a bit pricier than you originally wanted to pay, why not spread the cost by paying monthly? With no interest added you really can have the floor you dream of without breaking the bank.
