Flooring materials 'are seeing greater variety'

Flooring materials 'are seeing greater variety'Flooring materials that suit the purpose of the room in which they are fitted have grown in popularity in recent years, reports the Press and Journal.

The news provider notes an end to the trend for properties to be fitted with the same flooring materials in every room.

For example, before the turn of the millennium the publication suggests that many homes were carpeted in all areas, including the bathroom.

Subsequently, this was replaced by a tendency for every room to have laminate flooring.

However, people are now adopting a more utilitarian approach to flooring, with carpet in some rooms but hard-wearing wood elsewhere.

Bathrooms, meanwhile, are often now found with tiled floors, the article notes.

Readers are told that this is a consequence of the choice of suitable materials to achieve a cosy sensation in comfortable areas while ensuring durability in more practical spaces of the house.

The newspaper previously advised that a 'modern touch' can be achieved through the use of oak and slate flooring.
