Inspiration and Design

In this section of the Factory Direct Flooring Advice Centre you’ll find a variety of articles dedicated to floor inspiration. No matter the flooring type you’re looking to install in your home, we’re bound to have a guide on the best look for your home.

These articles look at many things, including why you should be planning to buy a specific type of flooring and its benefits and what the best materials are for specific rooms. For example, on this page you will be able to find such articles as Why And How To Stain A Solid Wood Floor and What Is The Best Floor For A Bathroom?

Whether you’re stuck on what the best product may be for you, or wish to know what the best way to go about doing a reinvigoration project with your floors is, then we have the answers you need. At Factory Direct Flooring we aim to provide the best flooring information for all our customers, as well as the best flooring solutions.

As well as our Inspiration category, our Advice Centre also aims to offer advice and insight into other areas concerned with flooring. These include such things as Care, Accessories and Underlay. Our Underlay section is designed to help you decide whether you need to install underlay alongside your new flooring and, if so, which one would be best for you. Our Accessories section looks at such things as floor beading and skirting boards, whilst our Care category aims to help you maintain your floors through the years.

Throughout these categories you will find all the information you need to help you decide on, install and care for the ideal floors for you. If, however, there’s something more you wish to ask us about flooring then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
