The results

Mostly A’s – Carpet

Carpet is one of the most popular flooring materials for homes across the UK and with great durability, unrivalled underfoot comfort and a huge variety of style choice, it’s not hard to see why. Carpet works well in any room of the home and is a great choice for those with young children. 

Mostly B’s – Real wood 

You prefer style and sophistication over practicality which is why real wood floors would work well for you. Unrivalled in their attractiveness and timeless elegance, real wood floors come in a range of different looks and offer a long-lasting flooring solution. 

Mostly C’s – Vinyl

Practicality and cost-effectiveness are your chief concerns when it comes to looking for new flooring for your home. Vinyl offers easy cleaning and a wide range of choices in gorgeous styles, including imitation wood and stone, but at a more affordable price than hard flooring.
