Home Living : May 10th 2011
2 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, May 10, 2011 Floor covering important » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING The right floor covering will be the main factor in deciding how comfortable your house is each season. Comfort aside, when changing floor covering, keep in mind durability and its placement in the house. A popular choice in recent years for home owners has been timber flooring, which is not only an excellent choice for durability but looks stunning. Today, timber flooring is available in a wide variety of colours, styles and wood species and at prices to suit all pockets. Their advantages are great: Easy cleaning: Spillages can be simply wiped away, cutting down your floor cleaning time. Antiallergic properties: Families with kids suffering allergies often pick timber which is relatively low-allergenic. Eco-friendly: If you are looking for a green alternative in flooring, then timber provides an ideal solution. Timber floors particularly look good in living rooms and treated ones are a favourite for outdoors and decking. When choosing timber floors, do your homework. There are many stores that specialise in timber floorings and are happy to help. Once you're the owner of a house with timber floors, don't forget its after-care. To keep them looking good, try to keep it away from direct sunlight. It's also important to keep your floors dry. Vacuuming or sweeping is best. Preferably don't use detergent and use water sparingly. Use protective pads to stop furniture scratching the floor. Next week: Why tiles have their place.
