If you are a regular reader then you will know we have been busy working on a bathroom renovation. When we moved here 6 months ago, it was quite obvious that the property hadn’t really been updated as the decor goes. The random use of colours in the bathroom and the tired fixtures and fittings, motivated us to modernise it in a way that we would enjoy actually being in there rather than hating everything about it.
The flooring was in desperate need of replacing. Originally, there was a beige coloured lino that had clearly been down years. So we have been working with Quick-Step to bring our bathroom floor up to date. Quick-Step have a diverse range of vinyl, laminate and wooden flooring.
After we had got the new toilet and sink in from Bath and Shower which I will be covering in another post, we could then lay the floor. We started off with the underlay.
Having used various underlays in our previous house we really noticed the high quality of the Quick-Step Unisound underlay. It is thick and well cushioned and the pre-attached moisture barrier helps protect the floor from moisture damage, which I think is genius.
The white planks we chose were from the Impressive range which is water resistant and anti-slip. The boards themselves are super sturdy unlike some of the cheaper alternatives out there. I love how the grain is actually raised which is perfect for use in the bathroom as it gives you that extra grip.
They lock seamlessly together with little effort. I couldn’t believe how the flooring reflects the light in the bathroom. Even though it is the tiniest bathroom ever, the flooring really opens up the room giving the feeling of more space.
Another thumbs up from me is just how warm the flooring is against your feet. I was certainly not expecting that being wooden flooring so that was a nice surprise.
We are over the moon with the end results. So much so that I think I will be using this instead of carpet when it comes to doing our bedroom.
What do you think?
Do you have a flooring project coming up?
