When drawing up plans for a new bathroom, or for the renovation of an existing bathroom, the type and style of flooring shouldn’t be neglected.

We have a full range of modern flooring products, from all types and styles of carpets, to rugs, laminate flooring and vinyl flooring, that help clients achieve their interior design goals.
Laminate Flooring – Love the rich, sensory appeal of natural materials like stone and wood? Laminate flooring recreates these visually, but due to being synthetic, has characteristics that make it suitable for high moisture environments. For example, it’s slip-resistant and highly waterproof. Other traits Ruislip clients can enjoy by choosing laminate flooring include impressive durability and a massive range of styles to choose from.
Vinyl Flooring – Similarly to laminate, vinyl flooring is available in many different colours and styles, so you can get creative and craft the bathroom of your dreams, ultimately adding significant value to your property. It’s warm, low maintenance, water resistant and hygienic. No wonder vinyl flooring has become one of the most popular choices in bathrooms in Ruislip and the wider UK.
Carpets – Conventional wisdom advises against carpets in bathrooms, as they’re prone to absorbing water and getting mouldy or mildew-y; not ideal. But manufacturers have carpets specifically designed for these sorts of applications. Short pile, easy-clean carpets are stain resistant and less absorbent, making them ideal for Ruislip property owners who want something warm under foot, but who for one reason or another aren’t keen on vinyl flooring or laminate flooring products.
Rugs – If you’re lucky enough to have a very large bathroom, perhaps with a nice open space between your sink and shower/bath, consider incorporating rugs within your space. They can give a rich, sumptuous feel to a bathroom, and recall the grand bathrooms from days of yore. We have a large selection of rugs at our flooring showroom in Ruislip, so stop in and have a browse, to see if anything catches your eye.
