A few years ago, we decided to change all of the carpet in our home to laminate flooring. We thought it would look better and easier to keep the house clean and tidy. Also, it was useful to do this because I suffer from allergies and now Bella also has asthma and eczema, so whilst carpets are great for your home, especially when it is colder, for people with allergies they may not be the best idea. Having wood laminate flooring was the best decision for us. But what about when we move from the flat?
We live in a 2 bedroom flat and currently it feels too small for us. Bella and Sienna share a room together but as they get older, we know they will both need their own space. This is one of the reasons we would love to move to a house. One of our ideas is to move to an older house so we can then refurbish it one room at a time to put our own stamp on it as we make it our home.
One of the main things I would love to do when we move is to have real wooden flooring throughout the ground floor. I was recently contacted by Lifestyle Flooring who specialise in a range of flooring options, from laminate to vinyl and real wooden flooring and carpets too.
Linton Engineered Wood Flooring
They have recently launched their Linton Engineered Wood Flooring range. Aesthetically pleasing and extremely hard wearing, the Linton wood flooring comes with a thick wear layer. This means that when the flooring is laid down in your home, not only can it withstand heavy traffic, but it can also be sanded down many times to keep it looking fresh and new. They can last for 40 to 80 years so you know they will last with your family as it expands for many years to come.
One of the features that appeal to me over the real wood flooring is that it is resistant to mould, damp and insects meaning it will be better for both mine and Bella’s allergies too. It is also eco-friendly too as it is made up from old, discarded or burnt wood that might not otherwise be used.
If you love the look of wooden flooring but don’t want to have full wooden floors or even carpets, you can choose from one of Lifestyle Flooring’s range of vinyl and laminate flooring options to give your home the same look without having to have full wooden floors.
You could also opt for Karndean floors which is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of luxury vinyl tiles and is a popular brand here in the UK. Available in myriad sizes, colours and designs, Karndean floors are waterproof and highly durable. Karndean flooring is perfectly suited for every space including kitchens, toilets, master bedrooms, living rooms, busy office spaces and more.
Gradus Carpet Tiles
However, If you are unsure of changing over to real wood flooring or this isn’t an option for you, Lifestyle flooring has other wooden floor options for you to choose from. If you love the feel of carpet under your feet to keep you warm on a cold winter’s day, you can choose from a wide of carpet colours and styles, including carpet tiles for your home.
So as you can see there are many different possibilities when choosing new flooring in your home. It is all about your needs and likes of course. I hope you find what suits you the best!
What type of flooring do you currently have? Are you thinking of changing your flooring? If so, what type of flooring are you looking to get?

The wooden laminates look fabulous. We are slowly eliminating carpet from our home as we find it impractical with pets and children. Much prefer wood, wooden laminate and wood-effect laminate.
Yes definitely much better to eliminate the carpets. For us that have been much better for us 🙂 x

Presently have carpets, with linoleum in kitchen , hall and toilet. We had laminate in the living room, till renovation works last year. The housing did not provide option of laminate, which if available would have been our choice.
Wooden floors may be ideal, as have found laminate much cleaner, and easier to clean than carpet. Also such an upheaval when new flooring is required, that having flooring which is long lasting can be a bonus.
Yes I agree! Definitely wooden floors are easier to clean than carpets.
