Flooring Types

The primary function for any floor covering is to protect the subfloor and withstand years of heavy foot traffic but in today’s modern society it seems design and ascetics take priority when choosing flooring for a project. The problem with this is people are left dissatisfied with their stunning new floor when it becomes apparent the choice sold to them wasn’t fit for purpose.

At The Floor Design Studio, we live up to our name by balancing both beauty and function when creating your floor - we really are a design studio.

Be it a new build home, busy commercial office or 16th century English manor, we can guide you through all the suitable products to meet your specifications ensuring you will be left with a beautiful AND functional floor.

Solid Wood

The Floor Design Studio

Solid Wood

Wood floors are a lifetime product which add value to your property. They increase in value as your home does. Hardwood floor products are one of the most sought after hard surface flooring in remodelling and new home construction. Engineered wood is a more popular choice than solid hardwood as it is much better at dealing with moisture. Engineered wood has a plywood base that is dimensionally stable which means it warps and flexes less easily upon contact with moisture than solid wood.

Made popular by companies such as Karndean and A mtico, luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is now the UK’s fastest growing market for floor coverings.

When you look into LVT it is clear to see why it is so popular, it is an inno vative design of vinyl flooring used as an affordable alternative to wood, stone and ceramic tiles.

The realistic look of either wood, stone or ceramic tile is extremely hard wearing and resilient to daily wear and tear. It has a scratch resistant surface and is waterproof making it ideal for any room.
