In any case, we are happy to offer you our best advice to choose the best floor for your home , new or to be restored.
The necessary premise, not to be forgotten, essentially concerns the importance of choosing floors . This piece of furniture, a functional element but also of style, actually plays a fundamental role and is destined to last for many years, and for this reason it must be carefully evaluated. It will then represent the basis for proceeding with the entire furnishing of the rooms.
The first question to ask , when choosing a floor, is: what is the lifestyle that I lead? How many people will live in the house? How many children? Will there be animals? These are fundamental data to establish, for example, the resistance that the floor must have to specific stresses. Likewise, the adjacency of certain areas with the outside , such as the garden, will also influence your choice, which will necessarily have to be oriented towards anti-scratch floors and products with materials that are very resistant to any type of aggression.
The same type of approach will have to be on the other hand destined to particular environments of the house , such as the kitchen or the bathroom , by force of thing subjected to humidity and destined to necessary and repeated cleaning operations. Therefore, it is better to leave particularly delicate solutions such as parquet and to avoid absolutely any non-water-repellent flooring. On the contrary, in more intimate and peaceful settings – like the bedrooms or the living room – you can leave more room for imagination and be less conditioned by obvious functional necessities.
Our second piece of advice goes some way to the first and is about the budget . Do not skimp , and avoid, if possible, the choice of particularly economical floors: often the quality-price ratio leaves much to be desired, and it will not take long to realize the obvious shortcomings of this type of product. They will immediately stain, easily flicker, they will turn out to be porous and unable to oppose the humidity and the joint, they will show halos after washing.
Do not think that a low price necessarily corresponds to a deal, indeed! When it comes to floors and walls , a price that seems to be very advantageous can go hand in hand with a collection of unexploited floors , or that have long remained in stock because they were unsold , or even obsolete and not very performing . Imagine how even the most beautifully furnished apartment could be impoverished by the look, with a poor quality flooring ! There is nothing worse than getting into a well-maintained house with a scruffy floor.
Therefore oriented on products that really know how to guarantee an excellent quality-price ratio , and for many, many years you will no longer have to worry about your floors.
Regarding the criteria for choosing a flooring for the home , technical ones will be evaluated before the aesthetic ones . Once you have defined the brand or line that suits you in terms of functionality and quality, you can dedicate yourself to the choice of color , material and finishes .
