Underfloor heating

Over the years, underfloor heating has grown more popular in the United Kingdom. Besides keeping your feet feel all warm, cozy, and toasty, it is also an efficient way to keep your home heated. Underfloor heating is also a highly versatile option for your house extension. It can lie underneath a number of different kinds of flooring such as timber, terracotta, stone, ceramic, some laminates, and even carpet.

Wood and laminate flooring options for your house

One of the most adaptable flooring materials is wooden flooring or laminate. It brings a cozy and natural feel to any setting. There are four different kinds of timber flooring; solid wood, multi-layered, reclaimed timber, or engineered wood and laminate flooring. Among these, solid wood and reclaimed timber are the hardest wearing and usually sands down every five to seven years. However, a good quality, multi-layered or engineered wood may be able to withstand a sanding or two if it gets damaged. However, if laminate flooring is scratched or damaged in any way, it needs to be replaced. It’s advisable to look for premium quality and scratch-resistant boards if you choose laminate flooring.

Tiles

One of the ideal selections for kitchen extensions is the use of tiles. It is also a great choice for all who like to use their extra space to carve out an indoor/outdoor area. Tiles are available in various forms, including ceramic, natural stone, and terracotta. They are mostly hard-wearing but increasingly aesthetical, full of texture. Using tiles could be great to both define and justify space if you’re planning a huge open plan living space.

Still, polished concrete flooring can be an ideal option for those who want to add a modern edge to their extension design. It is also the best option for those who are looking for a hard-wearing. As it is available in various colours and textures, concrete flooring may be combined with underfloor heating. There are other benefits too for using it as it improves with time. Plus, it does not retain dust mites and produces a unique contrast with interior design.

Carpet

Several media outlets, particularly magazines and tabloids, have been trumpeting the reincarnation of carpets. Even Sarah Beany, the famous property queen, is suggesting house sellers carpet their houses. Probably, of the major reasons leading to this trend is the increasing cost of fuel. Besides, carpets are cozier under their foot. If you select a carpet for your house extension, make sure it is hard-wearing. Also, don’t forget to find a suitable mat at the entrance.

It is advisable to do comparison shopping before hiring the best house extension service for your project. A majority of the house extension companies provide transparent estimates to keep your alert about the cost involved.
