Flooring and Interior Design

Flooring can make up a major part of an interior design project. So, we thought we’d give you some guidance on the different material options for your flooring and the different properties they bring it a room. This should help you make a decision that will complement the design of the room that your flooring is being fitted in.

All of the materials listed below are high-quality and each have their own advantages when used as flooring. The trick is choosing the one that suits your preferences and interior design style.


Carpet is a soft, plush material that feels nice and warm underfoot. This can add a touch of luxury and comfort to a room. It is a popular choice for living areas where comfort is a priority. Carpet is available in a wide range of colors and patterns, so it can fit with a variety of interior design styles. It is not suitable for wet rooms as it can easily become water damaged.


Hardwood is a popular flooring choice that also provides a sense of luxury. Rich wood colors, especially, can give a real warm and luxurious look to a room. Hardwood flooring is a durable choice that is used in a variety of rooms in modern homes and is thought to increase the value of a home.


Laminate is a flooring type that imitates hardwood flooring at a lower cost, so it has a similar aesthetic appeal to hardwood. It is also available in a variety of colors and styles to match a range of interior design needs, making it an impressively versatile choice of flooring.


Tiling is a durable flooring option that is generally waterproof and easy to clean, so it is a popular choice for bathroom floors, especially. Unlike some of the other materials listed here, it does not add much comfort to a room as it a colder and harder flooring choice. Tile is available in a variety of materials, with popular ones including ceramic and porcelain. You can choose from a range of colors and styles to suit the design of your room.


Vinyl is another highly water-resistant flooring material, but it has the added benefit of being slightly softer and warmer underfoot compared to a lot of tile. As it is a synthetic material, it is extremely customizable to meet your interior design preferences.
