Hints & Tips
Utilised as second living rooms, dining rooms, office spaces, you name it, a conservatory has multiple uses. And your flooring choice for it completely depends on how you want your conservatory to look and what you intend to do with the space.
There are numerous conservatory flooring options available and it’s worth considering them all to ensure you make the right choice. After all, a conservatory is a long term investment. Here we’ve highlighted the most popular:
What flooring types are available for my conservatory?
If you’re going to be using your conservatory predominantly as a main walkway to get out into your garden then laminate flooring is one of the best options available. Being easy to upkeep and staying cool throughout the year, it’s ideal if you plan to have muddy shoes or paws coming in and out as well.
Additionally, laminate panels are highly resistant to UV rays. So if you have a conservatory that does get a lot of sunlight it won’t wear as easily as other types of flooring. It’s also extremely versatile and comes in a variety of different colours and designs.
If you’re looking to use your conservatory to kick back, relax and chill out then carpet could be the choice for you. Carpet will help keep your conservatory space cosy, warm and it’s the perfect choice if you want to entertain guests. Do keep in mind that if you are going to have a lot of ‘foot traffic’ outside then it might not be the best choice as it would require a lot of cleaning.
Low maintenance, easy to clean and stylish, vinyl flooring is an ideal option for your conservatory, especially if you have a busy household. Interestingly, vinyl flooring can have an illuminating effect because it reflects the sun due to its glossy surface, which can make the colour you choose pop.
It’s also important to note that vinyl is one of the safest flooring options for your conservatory as it’s essentially non slip.
An engineered wood floor provides all the beauty of a solid wood floor together with a stable and durable construction. Made by bonding together several types of wood, engineered wood is a popular choice for those with a conservatory. It’s likely your conservatory will face a variety of different temperatures and engineered wood’s durability when facing these temperatures is much better than real wood.
As you can see, the list of conservatory flooring options is a very long one. Ultimately, it’ll depend on your budget and how you intend to put your conservatory to use. But it’s important to remember the decision on your conservatory flooring is one you’ll live with for some time, so do make sure to consider all options and factors.
