A lick of paint will transform a wall, but changing a oor isn’t as easy. We help you get it right the rst time…
One of the first things to choose when improving your home is the ﬂoor – or ﬂoors. However, with so much choice available, deciding on the right colour, material and finish can be a daunting experience. So start by considering what style you like and how it will interact with the rest of the room. And be realistic – you might yearn for a real oak ﬂoor, but will it get noticed in the tiny, dark study you are decorating? Marble looks beautiful, but polished granite is much harder wearing and less expensive. With a bit of imagination and patience you can achieve the look you want, and have cash to spare!
