Why I’ve gone for Consistency with our Flooring

So here’s an admission. My name’s Lucy and I’m a Rightmove addict. Ahhh, it feels good to get that out. I trawl the homes looking at all the decor and how people have lovingly decorated and  dressed their rooms.

One thing that particularly turns me on or off is the flooring and this is because when you see a gorgeous home that has different flooring in every room it feels really inconsistent and doesn’t flow. I don’t mean that every single room should look completely uniformed but I just feel it’s much more easy on the eye if it at least there is a running theme throughout ?

This spurred me to choose the same Engineered Natural Oak Wood Quick -Step in for all of our bedrooms including B’s bedroom that I hadn’t showed you until now. A while ago I posted the main and guest bedroom but since then we have had a change around ( are we ever surprised by the amount of abandoned stuffed toys found during these times needing new homes )  and we feel really pleased with it…

I know you shouldn’t decorate your home to please the next owners – but I do think it makes a bit of sense to consider what might sell your home in the future. How many times have you heard of owners ripping up nice carpet to expose the wooden floors ? Plus it just looks great for right now – which is the main objective.

Putting down this Quick-Step has made the room feel twice as big. As we’ve put in a new mirrored wardrobe this has also added light and makes the floor look like it goes on forever. But also if you slide back the doors you enter another little world beyond the dresses.

There is a ‘ secret room ‘ ( my sister said one day it will be called the boyfriend room and I said that’s when it will be bolted up haha ) that we’ve also had the Quick-Step laid in and it has transformed a tiny little space and it’s much more inviting now. Easy to wipe too with the chalk dust.

So now all 4 bedrooms are completed. Our room, M’s room, guest room and this one. We laid all of the floor boards the same way again to be formulaic. We’re very happy with the results. If you’re looking to change your flooring then I’d definitely recommend Quick-Step as an option.

To be honest, I’m amazed I even managed to photograph the room over the Summer Hols let alone write the post  – hope you’ve enjoyed it.

I completely get this! Our apartment in Zurich had the same parquet flooring throughout and it looked an absolute treat. We’ve gone for the same carpet upstairs in our new house and will opt for the same wooden floor for the downstairs. Consistency is no bad thing!!

We just laid engineered wood upstairs. Love it and totally agree about the flooring flowing through the rooms. Makes your home look more expensive designed.

Good decision, the flooring looks lovely. I was at a meeting last night and was surprised to discover lots of other secret Rightmove Addicts – it seems to be a growing movement!
