Here are lots of reasons to have them not just for their modern appeal:
- Many people find it can be cold underfoot. Of course underfloor heating can solve this but not everyone can afford it or wants to install it.
- Real wood can be expensive to refurbish, and original floor boards can be draughty, increasing your heating bills.
- Painted or stained floors do look good but often, especially with young children and their toys in the house, it can get chipped and scratched very quickly.
- If you live in a flat or apartment you won’t appreciate the tenants above you if they have noisy wooden floors.
Whatever you choose to do, make sure your flooring is the right choice for your home and your family. And have fun making it part of your home interior designs.
