You may want to install new carpet or other flooring in your home, for example, or you may be building a brand-new home. You may have a business, such as a hotel or restaurant, a butcher’s or a corner shop. When you have any sort of business you are getting more footfall than in a home, but the type of flooring that you need can still vary. For example, a hotel will likely need lots of heavy quality carpet, whereas in a restaurant, where there can be spills, you may need something that can take the traffic and yet be easy to clean, such as laminate or LVT or even anti slip safety flooring in working areas.

For example, you might choose herringbone engineered wood flooring for the entrance hall in your home. The possibilities are actually almost endless because there are just so many different types of wood that you could use. It is very much a matter of personal taste, just as long as the wood can handle the foot traffic, which, of course, herringbone engineered wood flooring can do very well.

Apart from the appearance of the floor, one has to take into consideration the footfall and also the use of the room. So, for example, most people wouldn’t put a carpet in the kitchen but would use tile or vinyl or laminate. But then when you look at those choices, such as vinyl and laminate, they are available in different thicknesses. Which one should you choose?
