How To Choose The Right Flooring

Patterned or plain? Bold or neutral? How to choose the perfect flooring shade for your room
Unless you’re an interior design expert, choosing your new flooring is likely to leave you with a twinge of doubt. What looks great in the showroom, when actually fitted, might show dirt, seem gloomy or bland or just ugly. A sample that might look great, when sized up to fit your living room, doesn’t always gel. So what guidance is there to ensure you end up with the right flooring surface for your home? Our brief guide

Choose The Right Surface

The last thing you want is to fit a new carpet that then becomes worn or dirty. The difference a more durable flooring surface can make to high-traffic areas over the years truly makes them worth considering. Hallways, kitchens, bathrooms and other areas that experience high foot traffic as well as spills, stains and scuffs will remain brighter and more attractive in the long term the more durable a surface you use.

Pattern For Space

Large and small spaces alike benefit from a sense of light and space, though the exact impact you want to achieve depends on the room. Smaller rooms, such as bathrooms, utility rooms and kitchens, always depend on features and furnishings to achieve a welcoming sense of space. This can often be a challenge to combine with the placement of functional features such as appliances. The best approach for these is to use patterns such as grids and ceramic tiled patterns to open up a room. While also fitting the functional theme, a ceramic tile pattern such as the classic black and white chequered ‘chessboard’ flooring lends your floor an optical illusion that provides a striking impression of space.

Colour For Light

Very light or very dark colours can both provide a sense of light. By carefully working light and dark shades, you can produce a great brightening effect in otherwise dingy-feeling rooms. A very dark floor can bring out the light in a room with white fittings and walls, while a lighter floor can create a broad neutral feel that accentuated décor features and accents.

Consider The Bigger Picture

Your entire house, throughout the entire day, will be a wide range of shades and atmospheres, as natural light moves and changes. Neither will you be in one room all day- so factor in the feel of a flooring as part of the whole.

what our clients say

I contacted Pyramid Carpets to supply and fit Karndean to my new refurbished narrow-boat based in Daventry. The estimator Paul and the fitter Mark carried out a magnificent job to a tight budget and within a short timescale. I am highly delighted with the finished floor. 

I wanted a new carpet for my lounge and found Pyramid carpets on the internet. I booked the choose at home service. The estimator arrived and provided me with a range of samples and ideas which I chose and had fitted within a couple of days. A very fast and efficient service from Pyramid Carpets, thanks. 

We chose Pyramid carpets to fit new carpets to our bedrooms and Hall, stairs & landing. The service was good and the fitter was very proffessional and did a great job. I will certainly be using Pyramid carpets again in the future. 

Fantastic service from start to finish, I would highly recommend Pyramid carpets.
