What does the room look like? Is it large and airy with a lot of light or is it small with few windows? There are two questions to keep in mind when laying a new floor. A light floor means that the room is often perceived as larger.
Which floor you should choose obviously depends on what your needs are. If you have small children at home who sometimes live robbers, it is good to think about having a durable floor that can withstand more moisture because you probably need to dry it more often and the risk of scratches can increase.
If you are laying a new floor in a bedroom, it does not wear as much as a kitchen where sharp objects can end up on the floor or in a hall where a lot of gravel and dirt accumulates.
Since the floor is the part of the room that is most visible, you not only want it to be practical and durable, but it should also look nice together with the rest of the room.
Think about what color you have on the walls or what color you plan to have if you do a complete renovation so that the floor matches the color.

Below we have listed some floor types that are popular in many homes. Something that suits you?
Tile floors are usually used for kitchens, halls and bathrooms, but can also come into their own in other rooms. The good thing about tile floors is that they are very durable and can withstand wet, which makes it easy to keep clean and tidy. If you are someone who often freezes if your feet, tile floors are very suitable for heating coils due to their thickness.
Like all other floor types, there is also a jungle of different tile floors. There are smooth, textured, solid color, multicolored or patterned. A trending surface treatment is what mimics natural stone. The advantage of not choosing real natural stone is that the tile floor is easier to maintain.
In bathrooms, white tiles are both timeless and give a fresh and tidy impression. The risk that it would age prematurely is not so great either because white is classic and rarely looks out of date, but if you want to take the turns, there are a lot of other colors to choose from. Due to the risk of slipping, the tip is to lay small tiles, which means more consumption of sealant but reduces the risk of slipping. Which floor you should have is a matter of taste, but the tip is to keep in mind that it should be easy to maintain while you think it is nice.
Linoleum flooring is a durable floor that also protects well against cold and sound. Thanks to these properties, this is a floor that is often laid in public environments where you would like sound-absorbing floors. We should not forget that it is a classic floor that has long existed in our homes but which for a period was a bit forgotten in front of plastic floors.
It is made from renewable raw materials such as linseed oil, cork and wood flour and can therefore be classified as an environmentally friendly alternative. Now that we live in a world where we talk a lot about thinking about the environment, the linoleum floor has therefore received a boost again.
Linoleum floors are available in many different colors and patterns, it is your imagination that determines what color you should have. The fun thing about linoleum floors is that you can mix different colors and create your own design in your home.
Something that is good to keep in mind is that linoleum floors do not withstand water and moisture to the same extent as, for example, tile floors and can therefore not be laid in wet areas. But apart from that, it is easy to care for and keep clean.
For you who want a high comfort factor and who like a soft feeling under your feet, carpet is a very good alternative. It is perfect to put in the rooms where there are cold floors, for example in the basement. In a bedroom, it is also nice with a carpet, it gives a cozy and cozy feeling in the room.
If you live in a home with two or more floors, it is practical to lay a carpet in the stairs. This makes the stairs safer because it reduces the risk of slipping, which is very positive from a safety perspective.
Now it is also really trendy as well and then it can be extra fun to keep up with that trend. There are a whole host of different colors to choose from, choose a color that you like and that fits well into the room it is meant to be in. You may need to think a little about what environment it should be in, is it in a bedrooms where there is not as great a risk of stains, you can of course have a light carpet, but if it is to be in a room with a lot of traffic, it is a smart move to choose a darker carpet where stains are not as clearly visible.
The parquet floor is basically a real wooden floor. If you choose a parquet floor, you get a floor with a long service life, it can last as long as half a century if you take care of it correctly. It is a very classic floor that fits well in most rooms, it exudes a feeling of luxury and warmth.
Since it is a wooden floor, there are many different types of wood, widths, thicknesses and patterns. When you choose a parquet floor, it is good to look at that it has a good surface treatment, is a hard wood that can withstand a lot of wear but also look at the wear layer, it talks about how abrasive the floor is and you want a floor that can be sanded to maintain the exclusive feel.
What you should keep in mind when choosing a parquet floor is that it is more sensitive to water, which when cleaning means that you should use as little water as possible so as not to damage the floor. Which cleaning agent you should use when drying the floors is also important, it is recommended to use something that is PH-neutral, green soap can then work as a good alternative.
Laminate flooring is an option for you who want a floor that is practical, durable and durable. Suitable for families with small children who play tough games where it can easily get scratched if you have a wooden floor. Previously, it was said that the laminate floors would look plastic, but today’s laminate has developed and today it is hardly possible to tell the difference between a wooden floor or a laminate floor.
The difference with laminate is that it is not a real wooden floor, which also means that it is not possible to sand. When it is worn, you need to lay a new floor, but a laminate floor of good quality can last up to 20 years, which is a long time.
The laminate floor is also available in a plethora of different patterns and colors. It can imitate any type of wood, or if you want it to look like concrete, stone or clinker, you will find it too.
Many new buildings today use laminate flooring because it is so durable but also because it is a sound-absorbing floor. This is a good thing to keep in mind, especially if you live in an apartment where you like to avoid as much noise as possible in order to maintain a good neighborly relationship.
