Items such as underlay struggle to capture the imagination but are essential if your flooring purchase is to be the success you deserve. Whether you’re after accessories for installation, maintenance or style purposes, this is the only guide you’ll need.
Installation & Maintenance Accessories
A high quality floor requires a high quality underlay. Underlay offers the advantages of noise reduction, added comfort and moisture protection, helping you to create the household ambiance you’ve always desired. It is a practical necessity if your new pride and joy is to get the support it needs, and the right underlay can also prolong the life of your floor, ensuring you get the most out of your investment.
You can learn more about underlay and the choices available to you through the UK Flooring Direct Education Centre, but this is not the only consideration at this stage. For a premium finish, flooring may also require specialist adhesives and installation tools, although professional fitters should have access to these.
Once your flooring has been laid, attention should turn to maintenance. UK Flooring Direct stocks an array of care products, ensuring there is no excuse for your floor to lose its original magic, from general cleaners to those for more specific applications. With these accessories you can retain that gleaming new finish that make these floors so special.
From a stylistic point of view, accessories can take flooring to the next level. For example, threshold profiles are a critical element in achieving a seamless transition from room to room, with colour matches available for all of UK Flooring Direct’s most popular floors. This said, profiles can also look great in a contrasting metal look, particularly effective if the transition is between two different floor finishes.
Beading should be considered to cover any gaps left to allow for potential movement in your floor. The use of pipe covers and matching skirting will also make for that sought after professional finish, little points perhaps, but all playing their part in the ultimate look we’re all striving for.
