Flooring For Your Dream Home

Flooring For Your Dream Home

When it comes time to renovating your dream home, one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make is what type of flooring to use. And for most homeowners it’s not an easy decision. At Carpet Court our professional award-winning sales team will help make that decision easier.

Consider not just looks, but also practicality. How will the floor feel on your feet, and how will you clean it? What flooring type should be put in each room? Will it stand up to pets, kids and spilled red wine? And how much do I want to spend?

Nothing finishes your renovation or dream home like the right flooring. It’s a great investment for your home – an investment that you will be thanking yourself for many years to come.

A popular design trend is to use the same flooring throughout the public areas. That makes the rooms look bigger and provides a unified look. Hardfloor is becoming increasingly popular in New Zealand particularly in the kitchen, bathroom and dining areas because of its stain, scratch and waterproof protection properties.

You also need to consider comfort. Carpet, is more comfortable to stand on and provides more warmth, this option is particularly popular in the likes of bedrooms and lounges.

With so many flooring options available, it can be confusing to figure out which decisions are the right ones to make. We’ve included some of our go-to ranges below that will make your house your dream house and for more info or a free measure and quote get in touch with us.

Carpet for your dream home

Carpet is the common choice in bedrooms, lounges and family rooms because it’s soft and warm and gives you that cozy feeling. It also keeps the noise down and is easy to install. Keep in mind that carpet needs to be cleaned more frequently than other types of flooring and by a professional to ensure it doesn’t harbor pests, dust and allergens.
