The 5 steps guide to choose the right flooring for my home.

Choosing the right type of flooring can be overwhelming with all the options of colors, material, styles, benefits and installation methods that come with it. When choosing your new flooring, it’s important to go with a company that has style and expertise rather than a company who will adapt your choice of flooring without taking you through the right steps first.

1. BUDGET

I’s not about how much you are willing to pay, but your budget will define whether you should go for Real Wood or Laminate Flooring.

Laminate Flooring is an imitation of real wood and the cost is significantly lower. At kitmo, we have the closest-to-natural laminate floors and most durable thanks to its 12mm thickness, that usually costs around $30 per m2 including installation.

However, if you don’t mind paying the extra, you should definitely go for the natural ,without hesitation. A Real Wood Flooring with a strong character that develops with time and age beautifully. Real Wood Floors start at $60 per m2 including installation.

The second factor after the budget is the environment in which the flooring is being installed.

Laminate Floors are usually good for areas that are prompt to a lot of scratching such as offices and kids playroom for example. Real Wood Floors is always the real deal. It ages beautifully with time and can be installed anywhere.
