Which flooring should I have in my conservatory?Conservatories
The type of flooring in your conservatory is like the flooring in your house, entirely your personal choice. However, there are a number of pros and cons for each choice.
A highly popular choice for your conservatory is tiled flooring. Perhaps for versatility, range of colours, designs and patterns, perhaps for the ease of cleaning or maybe even the cool factor during summer. There are a number of reasons that people choose a tiled floor. In the summer months, many tiled floors will remain cool even in the heat, helping you to keep cooler. However, they can be quite cold during the winter months, this can be rectified by introducing a rug to warm the space in winter.
There have been many debates over the effectiveness of laminate flooring in conservatories. This is due to the fact that many laminates expand during the heat, which can be increased in the summer due to the glass. However, there are a number of laminates that this does not affect, making them a great choice. Alternatively, fitting the laminate flooring so that it has expansion space at the edges can limit the issues that expansion can cause.
Many people consider vinyl flooring to be somewhat outdated. However, we disagree! Vinyl flooring is a great, cheap, versatile option that is available in a range of designs and colours. One of the biggest attractions that we find to laminate flooring comes if you have children. You can install good quality underlay to increase how soft your vinyl is, reducing the pain caused by trips and falls on usually hard floors, and they are also easy to clean, making spillages or the slip of a felt tip easy to wipe up. And generally, any damage that is done, the flooring can be replaced without a great expense.
There is a selection of customers that use the conservatory as an additional room to their home. So laying carpet, usually makes the space feel like part of the main house. This can also help to increase the warmth in the space, especially if it is used all year round. However, if you are considering carpet, and the space and garden will be used by children and animals, it may not be as easy as alternatives to keep clean.
Ultimately, the choice is yours.
