We don’t have any carpets in our house. Upstairs we have floorboards that have been painted white, then in our hallway and living room we have laminate and in our kitchen we have tiles. We did used to have carpet but I find it gets stained and ruined too quickly, plus it traps dust and Matt is allergic to it. We only rent our house so didn’t want to invest much in the flooring but if we owned it then I definitely would have made more of an investment and gone for engineered wooden flooring.
There are lots of benefits to engineered wooden flooring, here is a list of some of them…
It’s neutral so goes with any decor.
No matter what the colour of you walls or taste in decor, you can find a shade of engineered wooden flooring to match.
