5 questions for finding your ideal floor

1 – Where will you install the floor?

Every room has specific needs. A living room longs for the charm of authentic wood, while bathrooms and kitchens require floors that are waterproof and easy to clean. Looking for a floor for your bedroom or nursery? Then you’ll want one that feels warm and soft, with an underlay that reduces reflection sound.

2 – How will your floor be installed?

In a new house the thickness of a floor won’t be an issue. But if you’re renovating, it’s good to know that a Quick-Step floor can be installed over an existing one. Are you installing it yourself or hiring a professional? Either way, to reduce installation costs you’ll want a method that’s quick and easy – like the Quick-Step Uniclic system.

3 – Who will use the floor?

If you have kids, then you’ll know that they like to play on a soft and warm floor and you’ll want it to be easy to clean. If you have pets, then it’s good to know that all Quick-Step floors have protective, scratch-resistant layers.


4 – Do you have underfloor heating or cooling?

If so, look for a floor with the right thermal features to make sure the planks stay together and to prevent condensation problems. Both Laminate and Vinyl are a good choice. Hardwood, except for ash and beech, is also an option as long as you pick the right underlay.

5 – What’s your style?

Do you like planks or tiles? Modern or traditional? Light or dark? In the end, there’s no accounting for taste. The choice is up to you. Only pick a floor that complements your own style. But remember: there’s a Quick-Step floor for every taste.
