Whether you’re overhauling the flooring for one room, or flooring your entire home, we know it’s one of the bigger investments you can make in your home’s value, decor and your personal comfort too boot. As the best flooring company in Pietermaritzburg we’re here to guide you, whether you choose laminate, vinyl, ceramic tile, engineered wood, solid wood, linoleum, carpet flooring or anything else. Here are some of our pointers:
- Consider using a cheap flooring option as a wall decor option. Cheap flooring options often don’t look the part, and may be a good alternative to expensive wall tiles or wall cladding, especially in small spaces such as the bathroom. This is especially true if you already have a decent floor in that same space.
- We always recommend opting professional installation. In some instances, there is some pre-prep you can do yourself though that will save you thousands of rands. Chat to us.
- You can look for half-used boxes of tiles or tiles with slight cracks or chips. These are usually more inexpensive at the manufacturer’s warehouse. Use these for trim, even if they are not an exact match for your main tile. Or, use them in a place where the defects won’t be obvious. It’s all about being creative!
See how you measure up
If you measure incorrectly, it will cost you. It’s one of the most common mistakes we have to contend with as the best flooring company in Pietermaritzburg. Too few tiles and you’ve got a serious design blunder on your hands. Too many, and you’ve overspent for nothing. To find out what you need, measure the square meterage by multiplying the room length times the room width. But seven to 10 percent extra to allow for mistakes, retakes, hidden sample defects and waste.
Keep it consistent
This applies to real wood and engineered wood in particular. But all the flooring you need at the same time or as close to the same time as possible as variations can occur from batch to batch. By contrast, use boards from various boxes as you lay laminate floors to avoid monotonous repetition.
Be sample smart
As the, we always advise you to take home samples of what you want to install as floor coverings. The investment in buying a piece of carpet or a few tiles and laying them out where you envisioned they’d be when you purchased them, proves invaluable. There have been quite a few times when, after a few days or even a week or two of contemplation, clients return to report that what they actually need is a shade lighter or darker, or something else altogether.
