Laminate flooring is composed of lots of different wood based materials. These materials are laminated together and topped with a photographic image on the face of each of the boards.

Laminate is definitely an extremely popular choice with homeowners. It’s a lot less expensive than a lot of other solid wood flooring options available, making it immediately more attractive.

It’s easy to install and has a fantastic durable nature. This makes it a brilliant choice for a busy household that sees a lot of high traffic.


Vinyl is a mixture of polyvinyl chloride and plasticisers, with added colour pigments.

Vinyl flooring is favoured for being versatile, affordable and resilient. It’s available in lots of different style and colours, making it perfect for almost any room in your home. It’s especially popular in rooms that suffer from moisture problems, such as in the bathroom or kitchen.

You have lots of different options when it comes to choosing vinyl for your home. It’s available as sheets or as self-stick tiles. It also comes in a number of different widths and lengths; making it easy to customise to your requirements.

Solid Wood

Hardwood flooring is probably THE most requested flooring option from clients. With a huge variety of natural woods available, people can choose from endless options, including oak, pine, bamboo, cherry and mahogany.

Hardwood is definitely the most traditional type of flooring materials; you’ll see it in a lot of old builds and period properties. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not popular in more modern houses today.

Hardwood flooring is extremely durable, lasting the full lifetime of a property. It’s also been known to add value to properties – another reason for why it’s so in demand.


Of course, you don’t always have to choose flooring; you can opt for carpets throughout the home instead. Carpets are not as common as they used to be, with more and more people taking advantage of other flooring options instead.

However, some people still prefer the soft feel of a plush carpet.

Available in lots of different patterns, style and colours; the options available give you a lot more choice then previous years. They offer fantastic soundproofing, can save you energy and are luxurious to walk on.

Whatever flooring type you’re looking for, James Airey have you covered!
