Step #1: Outline Your Timber Flooring Scope & Requirements
The first step you need to do is outline ALL your requirements. You should be asking yourself some questions, such as:
- What is on-trend at the moment? Do I want to stick to what’s on-trend or try something new?
- What style do I want to achieve? Contemporary? Traditional? Timeless? Minimalist?
- Do I live in a humid climate?
- Will the timber flooring have a lot of traffic from kids, pets, toys and more?
- How large is the area that needs to be installed with timber flooring?
- What is my budget?
With a wide range of timber flooring available, it’s always important to consider your specific requirements. This way it’ll be easy to eliminate options once you do a bit of research about the available products and their features.
For example, if you’re looking to put timber flooring in your bathroom, you will need to consider an engineered flooring option that is suitable for wet areas.
Step #2: Research Your Timber Flooring Options
If you want to get the most out of your timber floors, why not take that extra step and do some research about all your options? This way, you’ll know you’re choosing a floor that suits YOUR needs. Some things you should research…. durability, maintenance and ALL the options.
Think back to step one when you asked yourself: “Will the timber flooring have a lot of traffic from kids, pets, toys and more?”
If you answered yes to this question, then durability is a big thing you should be considering when looking at all the options. Every timber flooring has different durability, so do your research. Or, give us a call and we can help.
Maintenance is another big thing. Different timber flooring has different maintenance needs.
You need to know what needs to be done to protect your flooring from wear & tear, moisture and humidity.
And on top of this, you should do your research on the cleaning products and processes that would be needed for your specific flooring.
After researching durability and maintenance you then get to explore all the timber flooring options.
This is the part where you get to delve into the style and look you want to go for (while still taking into consideration your durability and maintenance requirements).
A quick tip: visit a timber flooring showroom. This will provide a visual for all your timber flooring options.
