How To Choose Flooring

Today there are many styles, colours and fibres to select from, it can be hard to know what is right for your home. The following information shows some different types of flooring to help you make the right decision for you and your home. As designer James Treble says, “I choose flooring first with my clients. I liken it to a good pair of shoes, they take the wear and tear, they have to look good, but they have to be functional, and then you can work out the rest of the outfit.” Wise words!

Which Carpet Is Right For Me?

Everyone loves the feeling of carpet underfoot. From plush pile through to contemporary low-pile options, the thought of walking across carpet is synonymous with luxury, comfort and style. Carpet also can mean a relaxed space. Think about how carpet feels for the whole body, sitting on the floor reading, watching TV and playing board games is much more likely to occur if there is carpet or rugs involved.


Like any interior design decision however, there’s a lot to consider before deciding which style and design is right for your home. How do you live? What are the spaces to consider? How do you want it to look and feel? What are the existing features of the home? These are just some considerations that may help you to make the right decision for you and your home. Once you have pondered your answers the best you can, take this information with you when you visit your local Flooring Xtra store, and this will help the team help you.

Dunlop Flooring and Flooring Xtra are proud to be supporters of this initiative, and to demonstrate our commitment we proudly donate $1 from every roll of Envirotred sold, towards National Recycling Week.
