Usually, young couples are very enthusiastic with the home renovation for their first unit that they had purchased it together. They would be involve actively in every single stage that ranges from fabricating carpentry works to the finest details such as accessories like flower vase that helps to further enhance their new home as every single elements plays a part to create the atmosphere that they wish to achieve. Some young couples may have budget constraint and need to source for good quality materials that are available at affordable prices.
How to go about choosing the right material?
Nowadays, young couples are more concern regarding the maintenance of the materials that are selected for their home as most of them are working adults and do not have ample time to do extra maintenance to keep their home clean and nice.
They have to choose the right type of flooring as it is the most important part of the home and maintaining a floor can be a hassle. It can change the whole appearance of the space when it is old and dirty.
If they are looking at the flooring materials that can enable them to relax after a long day at work without having to keep worrying about maintaining it, High End Resilient Flooring (HERF) might be the best option for them as it requires low or zero maintenance to retain its original beauty. No special maintenance such as lacquering or varnishing is needed to be done on the flooring in order to have the same outlook as the day that it was installed.
For bedrooms, most people would tend to go for wood materials flooring as it creates a cosy ambience and your feet will not feel cold during rainy days or when your rooms are air-conditioned. However, purchasing of solid wood flooring can be costly which may exceed the budget that the young couples had intended to fork out. A substitute of solid wood flooring would be HERF as it has various “wood” designs and the characteristics is similar to laminate flooring. The advantage of HERF as compared to laminate flooring is that it is waterproof which is the main concern when using laminate floor.
As young couples are more willing to accept bold and creative ideas that their designers have proposed hence they would have to make sure that their walls, floors and their furniture are able to match together. Choosing the right materials that can last for a long period of time can spare them from any unnecessary problems.
