-- Though much of the country is still struggling to find disposable income thanks to the recent recession, it seems many people are still keen to spend much of their hard-earned cash on home improvement projects. According to 2012 sales figures from Green Apple, a large number of customers are now choosing to invest in high quality flooring rather than cheaper products, mainly due to the fact these budget options are not as durable and hardwearing as more expensive luxury installations.
This trend complements the opinions of several industry experts who have recently predicted that hardwood floors are to become more popular amongst consumers in 2013. Neil Kelly of the Neil Kelly Company, a design and remodelling firm, has mentioned in an interview with World Scene Writer Bravetta Hassell that he believes prefinished and engineered wood flooring will continue to be snapped up by consumers thanks to its ‘hard, durable finish’ and easy installation methods.
However, aside from its obvious practical advantages, Green Apple MD Stephen believes that the overall look of luxury flooring far exceeds that of the many budget flooring options now available on the market.“Engineered, laminate and solid wood flooring comes in an almost infinite range of styles and finishes, so customers looking for a floor to set off their interior design will normally prefer to invest in high-end products,” he says. “In general terms, they are also less likely to lose their aesthetic appeal due to unexpected damage, such as scratches, scuffs or stains.”
Green Apple Flooring supplies an extensive range of solid wood, engineered and laminate flooring to the UK. The company is proud to stock flooring and maintenance products from some of the best-known brands in Europe, including Quickstep and Elka, at extremely competitive prices.
