As the days grow longer and the weather warmer, many homeowners start thinking about home improvement projects. While summer is often associated with holidays and outdoor activities, it is also an ideal time to complete indoor renovations, particularly flooring, as you can be outside on the day it’s being done. Here are our top three reasons why summer is the perfect season to invest in new flooring for your home.

Better weather

We’ll start with the most obvious one! Better weather provides a better environment to install flooring for a number of reasons. Materials such as hardwood, laminate, and even carpet benefit from low humidity levels, which help prevent warping, swelling, and other moisture-related issues. 

Also, adhesives used in flooring installations cure more effectively in warm weather, ensuring a more secure and lasting fit. Not to mention that you can also have windows and doors open to ensure that any temporary fumes created from installing the flooring can dissipate quicker.

You can see what needs the most attention

With improved light (and more of it) flooding in through windows, you’ll be able to notice which areas of your home need the most attention. We find that customers tend to notice marks on their flooring in Summer that went unnoticed in the darker months.

While it’s easier to make quick improvements to your home, the flooring can have the biggest impact of all. It’s also the aspect of your home that sees the most wear and tear so making sure you prioritise the areas that need the most attention is important. We have a Floorspiration Hub that has lots of stunning photos to give you some flooring inspiration for all areas of your home.

Enjoying your new flooring

Finally, one of the most rewarding aspects of installing new flooring in the summer is that you can make the most of it. With children out of school and more time spent at home, summer provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy the comfort and beauty of your new flooring. Whether you’re hosting a barbecue, having a family movie night, or simply relaxing at home, new flooring can enhance your overall experience.

Whether you’re looking for new hard flooring or carpet, we have a huge range to see at both our Worthing and Storrington showrooms. We always encourage customers to come in to see our ranges for themselves so that they can make a better decision (more on this in one our previous blog posts). By visiting one of our showrooms, you also have the opportunity to speak to our friendly team of flooring experts. With years of experience, they’re on hand to help you choose the right flooring for you. 

Customers often bring a curtain sample or cushion cover in so we can match flooring to soft furnishings and as we mentioned, we also have a Floorspiration Hub so that you can get some ideas before coming in to see us. You can also show the photos you see on our website to our experts who will be able to take you to the flooring shown, or something very similar. We look forward to seeing you soon!
