Choosing a new floor for your own house is very exciting and making the right decision as to the type of floor you choose is very important.
There are so many designs and types of surfaces available that it can make the process a little confusing.
To help make it as easy as 1-2-3, go through the key criteria below for selecting flooring for your room
Floor for your entrance
Hardwearing: the soles of your shoes carry sand and tiny stones from the outside that can be very damaging to the floor, a reinforced surface treatment is what is needed
Easy cleaning: In Malaysia, you may have to clean the entrance daily. There are no self-cleaning floors, however there will have floors that are easier to maintain than others
Looks: You never get a second chance to make a first impression
Floor for your living hall
Acoustic: As this place is a place where we gather most of the time, we may want to consider the flooring's acoustic properties to help reduce the noise.
Resistance: We will us this room most of the time, so select a floor that will stand the test of time and not wear out too quickly
Looks: It is a place where we gathers and entertain, thus, choose a floor that we will enjoy for a long time
Floor for your bedroom
Quiet: Your bedroom is your cocoon, make sure that your new floor provides a good acoustic insulation
Comfort: You want your bedroom to feel cosy so check the thermal properties of the floor
Serenity: Soothing designs and soft, neutral colors will provide a restful environment
Floor for your kitchen
Hardwearing: The Kitchen is a busy room and things dropped occasionally causing damage to the floor, thus, choose a floor that is durable and impact resistant
Stain Resistance: Select a surface that is stain resistant so that you can clean the stain away more easily
Looks: Today's kitchen has became part of our 'daily living' areas and thus need to be more than simpy functional.
Floor for your playroom
Hardwearing: Playing, creating and discovering are all things that children should be doing. To a floor that translates to scratching, staining and denting. Make sure your new floor will be able to stand up to these challenges.
Clean: Small children spend a lot of time crawling around on the floor so you want to make sure that their environment is as clean and dust-free as possible. A smooth floor that is easy to clean is the best playground for any child.
Comfortable: Most of the children play will be on the floor so consider both the acoustic and thermal properties of the floor.
