Finding the right floor to suit your room, lifestyle and budget requires thorough research if you don’t want to keep replacing it. With real wood you are investing in something which will last a lifetime. Boards come in different thicknesses – you can lay thinner boards directly onto existing floor while thicker ones need to be nailed to joists. Real wood is a quieter choice than laminate and it’s warm underfoot so is good for a living room. Just avoid real wood flooring in areas where there is a danger of it getting wet or where there are great changes of temperature, as it can shrink. Laminate is a great option for a kitchen, where the floor is prone to suffer spills and marks. Laminate flooring now looks very much like wood flooring, but comes at an affordable price.
