Your bespoke attic conversion needs a quality floor that complements the space, but which option is right for you? When it comes to flooring, there are a vast range of options to choose from, ranging from carpet to tiles, but they won’t all work for you. The best flooring for loft conversions depends on factors like the function and style of the room as well as maintenance requirements. As such, it is important to consider your specific space and needs in order to find the right type of flooring for your loft extension. At Econoloft, our loft conversion specialists are on hand to offer expert advice and information to help you make an informed decision. On this page, we highlight some of the most popular options for attic conversions in Wimbledon and across the UK.
The versatility of loft spaces means all kinds of flooring can work well in conversions, so it really is a matter of finding what will work best for you. As a starting point, consider the following:
Solid Wood Flooring
Solid wood is the preferred choice of many homeowners in Wimbledon thanks to the luxurious feel and stylish finish it brings to any room. It works well with all interior styles, from traditional to contemporary, and can even add to the value of homes. Solid wood floors also offer excellent longevity and are easy to clean.
Bear in mind, solid wood is one of the more expensive options and can add around 20mm in height to a floor, which is a vital consideration for loft conversions, but our loft conversion specialists can advise on potential issues.
Linoleum and Vinyl
Linoleum and vinyl floors are both very easy to clean and maintain and they are very hard wearing, making them suitable for all kinds of loft extension uses including children’s rooms and bathrooms. Both options also come in a vast range of styles, including authentic wood effects, but vinyl flooring offers a more luxurious finish.
Nothing beats carpet for creating warm and cosy attic conversions in Wimbledon and the UK. Available in a range of styles, piles and colours, there is a carpet to suit every space, and an added benefit is that carpet offers a level of sound insulation. However, carpet is harder to clean and maintain than other options, so may not be suitable for every space.
When creating luxurious bathrooms in loft conversions, tile is the ideal flooring option. Tiles are easy to clean and repair, offering high durability and scratch resistance. You can also use tiles to add a stylish feature floor or use matching tiles for the floor and walls to create a seamless, elegant finish.
As loft conversion specialists, we are adept at maximising comfort and luxury in attic conversions, and underfloor heating is perfect for this. Underfloor heating is an efficient and cost-effective heating option which removes the need for radiators, saving valuable space in your Wimbledon loft extension. It also prevents you having to stand on a cold floor in the morning or after getting out of a warm bath or shower. We can install underfloor heating with most floor types, but it works best with tiles, wood, vinyl and linoleum.
