Traditional and cosy or bright and modern? Carpet is the traditional choice for living rooms, but laminate would create a contemporary look; with parquet, marble, or wood effect designs. If you're still not convinced, check out our guide on styling wooden flooring in your living room
Bedrooms: Carpet vs laminate in your bedroom needn't be a tricky decision! You can’t beat the feel of a plush carpet pile on bare feet when you step out of bed, so you can opt for a whole floor of carpet, or give your bedroom a modern twist with laminate and add a rug for comfort!
Kitchens: Carpet works best in low traffic areas where spills and moisture are less likely, and does a great job of cosying up a sectioned-off, chill-out area for reading or watching TV. Laminate is a hard-wearing option and a great way to create a variety of effects, from traditional tiling to contemporary stone.
Hallway: Easy-clean laminate is a practical option, and you can match it to any design scheme to create a great first impression. Carpets are soft and welcoming, for sure, but it’s better to add easy-clean rugs at the front doorway, so everyone can wipe their feet.
Dining rooms: We recommend laminate over carpet in dining areas, as laminate is very laid back when it comes to maintenance, and you won’t have to worry about stains or spills!
As a rule of thumb; choose laminate for practicality and affordability and carpet for comfort and luxury.
