Having beautiful flooring throughout your home is often on the wish list of most homeowners. Seeing pictures of beautiful parquet flooring, gorgeous wood floors or smooth stone floors makes most homeowners put great flooring at the top of their home decorating goals. But what if your budget won’t stretch to the flooring you want, or the use of the room or base you are laying the flooring onto is just not suitable for some of these traditional materials. If one of these reasons means you want the look but can’t get the real thing then here are some great ways to get the look without breaking the bank!
Why Fake Flooring is in
When we say fake, we actually mean simply simulated, getting the look of the flooring you want without the cost or hassle of installing the real thing. A beautiful parquet floor can take many man hours to lay which makes it very expensive, or real stone floors may not be suitable for you home, if that is the case there are many ways to ‘fake it’.
If you love the look and feel of real wood but don’t want the hassle or cost of installing it in your home, then you have a few great options. Wood Laminate flooring is a great way to get the look of the wood that you want without the cost of the real thing. Laminate flooring only has the top layer in the wood, or image of the wood that you want making it much easier and cheaper to install. Many laminate flooring brands have easy fir together boards that you can lay yourself of have the expert team at Adamms lay for you. If you want a more intricate look like parquet, then choosing a vinyl floor that replicated the pattern you are looking for in wood is a great way to fake the look of wood while having all the benefits of a vinyl floor.
Stone and Tiles
Kitchens and bathrooms are two of the main places in the home where a stone floor can look simply stunning. But if it is not practical to lay stone or tiles in your kitchen or bathroom then a vinyl floor that replicated the look of stone or tiles is the best way forward. Whether you want a lovely slate floor look, a marble floor or quirky Moroccan style tiles then you will be spoilt for choice with the many patterns available in modern luxury vinyl today. Vinyl is so good because modern photography has improved so much over the years. Real stone, tiles and other natural elements are photographed beautifully before being printed onto practical vinyl flooring. The boring vinyl of the past is no more, today you would be hard pushed to see the difference in vinyl stone floors and real stone floors – a great way to fake it!
