Posted: Aug 31, 2018
Looking for cheap flooring? Well, you’re not alone – there are thousands of homeowners in the UK who want elegant looking wood floors, the only catch is that they are looking to get it on a very tight budget. If you too want to give your flooring a revamp but want to do so without burning a hole in your pocket, then this article should make for an interesting read. It will highlight 3 ways to get a cost-effective flooring solution.
1. Make the right choice.
When it comes to cheap flooring, you could always go for laminate/vinyl flooring. It looks like wood but isn’t and can be sourced at very low costs and can even be installed by the homeowner without much expertise in wood floor installation. However, this is not real wood and will exude a cheap, rather fake feel when installed in your home.
That’s why it’s always better to go for real wood flooring. However, solid wood floors are far from cheap and can cost you a sizeable amount to source and fit. Luckily, you can go for engineered floors which are made from multiple layers of soft/plywood and finished with a real hardwood layer on the top.
Since the entire floor is not made from real wood, it’s much more affordable to installed engineered wood floors. The top layer of real wood is sure to look elegant. Mover, by virtue of its multilayered installation, the engineered wood floor also handle weather changes much better and are also much stronger and durable than wood floors.
2. Thick is the new thin.
Wood floors come in varying thicknesses. The most service provider will offer you a range between 2mm and 20mm. The thickness of the floor determines how many times it can be re-sanded and re-finished to keep it looking brand new. A floor that’s 2mm thick can be re-sanded not more than 2 times whilst a floor that’s 20mm thick can be re-sanded multiple times to keep the floor looking new for year and yea and years.
However, the thickness of the floor also plays an important role in the price of the floor - the thicker the floor, the higher the cost. So if you want cheap flooring, you can keep the thickness to a bare minimum. Considering the vintage looking things are in these days, your floor will only look better in time.
