Carpet and vinyl flooring are enduringly popular choices for those that are looking to revamp their homes. But we understand that, with an increasing number of choices available, it can be hard to know what’s right for you and your home.

That’s why we’ve created this handy little guide that looks at the advantages of each option for different rooms in the house.


Carpet adds warmth

Carpet is soft, comfortable and helps you retain warm air in any room in which you choose to fit it. If you want to feel cosy and content, carpet is a great choice. What’s more, if you couple your carpet with one of QA’s heat insulating carpet underlays you’ll be treated to an extra warm and toasty experience underfoot.

Carpet adds style

There are so many styles and designs available in carpet that your options are vast when it comes to adding style and colour in your home. What’s more, your choice of flooring can really help to express your personality with your interior décor.

Carpet blocks noise

If you have a noisy teenager with a penchant for loud computer games or a significant other who just loves their old rock records, you may need to buffer the inevitable noise. Carpets help to absorb sounds in the rooms they are fitted. Sound reduction underlay, a range of which we supply at QA Flooring Solutions, can further block any noise. That way, your home can remain an oasis of calm.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is easy to maintain

Vinyl flooring is incredibly easy to look after. Easy to vacuum, mop or wipe clean, it’s an ideal solution if you have a small person who is liable to spill things or a pet who likes to leave reminders of their presence around the house!

Vinyl flooring is easier to replace

If an accident leads to scuffing some of your vinyl flooring then you don’t have to worry about replacing the entire thing. You can replace tiles or sections of vinyl flooring in ways that just wouldn’t work for carpet.

Vinyl flooring can be used throughout the home

Despite the common conception that vinyl is for heavy traffic areas, such as kitchens and hallways, vinyl has become much more versatile. Our special range of Luvanto Luxury Vinyl Flooring comes in a range of hardwood and stone styles. That way, you can achieve whatever look you want in whichever room you choose. Perfect!

Whichever flooring you choose for your home, QA has a solution to help you. We stock an extensive range of underlays suitable for carpet, wood or specialist flooring.  Or if you’re sold on the versatility and style that vinyl flooring can offer you, find out more about our luxury vinyl flooring options here.
