  • Minerva Collection Porcelain Tile Luxury Floor and Wall Tiles

      When you plan the look of your home, your floors and your walls are two of the biggest decisions you’re likely to make. They are the two things that’ll create the backdrop to everything else you add to your interior. Walls thankfully are easy enough to change, but floor decisions tend to be for the long term – or at least for more than a decade or two in the majority of cases. Whether you choose, wood, tile, carpet or laminate will depend on the look you’re hoping to achieve and the budget you have. Until relatively recently, tiles have tended to be thought of as more of a south European choice for anything other than bathrooms. But when under floor heating became affordable for all of us, more and more people started to rec ... READ MORE >

  • Laminate Flooring Thickness Guide

      Laminate flooring comes in several thicknesses including 7mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and even 15mm; but what exactly do the different thicknesses mean? Are they a guide to quality, durability, price or any other factor that might be really important when making your choice? The bottom line when it comes to laminate flooring is that how it is made doesn’t change depending on the thickness of the board. Laminate flooring production is a clever process that involves four different layers. There’s the core layer, the backing layer, the décor layer and the wear layer. The core layer, as you’d expect is what gives the board its strength and stability. The backing layer provides support, the décor layer is what gives the floor its great ... READ MORE >

  • Lino Flooring vs. Wood Flooring - How the Two Compare

        Lino, the term commonly used to describe linoleum is a floor covering that’s made from a whole host of renewable ingredients. Often confused with vinyl flooring, lino is actually quite different in its make-up. The main thing that vinyl and lino have in common is that they come in a single sheet and are known for being very pliable – which means that they restore their shape quickly. Lino flooring has seen a bit of a rise in demand recently and some clients are asking us about how lino flooring and wood flooring compare. So, in this article we’d like to explore the 5 key points that help people make their decision when it comes to choosing the right floor for their project.
