Floors - Kirsty's Tips for making the most of Easter Decorating


Easter and May Day holidays have always been a popular time for redecorating and home improvements. The spring weather and longer days encourage even the most reluctant DIYer to de-clutter, carry out home maintenance and have a general spruce up after the ravages of Winter. So, if you’re planning on donning the overalls over the holidays, then gen up first on what are the home decorating trends for 2012.13-04-2012

Floors
Again the emphasis is on using sustainable products and with flooring there are a couple of real leaders.
Bamboo is an environmentally friendly alternative to hardwood as the floor is made from grass rather than wood and the trees can be replaced more easily.

Cork is probably the best all round environmentally friendly product available. No trees need to be cut down to produce cork. It is naturally fire and mould resistant, has sound and thermal insulation qualities, is soft to touch and comfortable to stand on. It’s also easier to care for than hard wood.

For those wanting instant vintage, using reclaimed wooden floors complete with cracks, holes and nail marks is a great way of giving and old floor a new home.
