We are going to start building work soon and I can't decide what to have downstairs.

Tiling in kitchen/utility and carpet in lounge?

Karndean in kitchen/utility?

But what about the hallway? The hallway is my biggest problem.

What have you got?

Parquet - hard wearing but not cold.

Ecureuil Tue 17-Oct-17 21:23:26

We have carpet in lounge, playroom and dining room. Tiles in kitchen and utility. Wood (oak) in hall.

Solid wood everywhere apart from kitchen utility toilet and bathrooms which are tiles. Love it. Soooo easy.

Victorian tiles in the hallway. Good choice for us all these years later with a dog, children, mud, etc., etc.

Wood look vinyl. I like it.

Ecureuil Tue 17-Oct-17 21:24:30

Oh and tiles in downstairs toilet.

Slate with underfloor heating in the kitchen,
striped floorboards in the dining room and hall, pebbles set in grout in the wet room
Parquet in the living room
Tiles in the porch

Carpet in lounge so that it’s cosy. Tiles in utility and kitchen so easy to clean and can put water on it. Tiles or wooden in hallway - wooden is warmer but tiles are easier to clean.

Didn't choose most of it but-

Vinyl (wood effect) in hallway & study.

Tiles in kitchen-diner, utility & toilet.

Carpet in living room.

The tiles are really cold. And I find keeping them clean a ball-ache - so much grouting! I'd go for Karndean everywhere but living room if I could.

Hallway & downstairs loo: Amitico-type (Camaro maybe, it's a few years ago) wood effect stuff, laid in plank strips.
Lounge & playroom: carpet.
Kitchen, utility & conservatory: tiles.
Dining room: laminate.

My preference would be to take the Amitico-type throughout the downstairs except the lounge & playroom.

Stairs, landing, all bedrooms, bathroom & ensuite all carpeted.

Didn't choose to wood in sitting room, dining room hall stairs and landing. Tiles in the kitchen and utility. Tiles in bathroom. Carpet in the bedrooms.

That's perfect for me.

JoJoSM2 Tue 17-Oct-17 21:29:37

Tiles and wooden floors on the ground floor, carpets in bedrooms.

krustykittens Tue 17-Oct-17 21:29:50

Solid oak everywhere but kitchens and bathrooms which are slate.

Blankscreen Tue 17-Oct-17 21:36:30

Kitchen diner, utility,.sitting room, hall way and downstairs loo- all karndean
Snug- carpet.

I love it it feels really spacious and flows beautifully.

Liara Tue 17-Oct-17 21:39:51

Limestone in living room, hall and dining. Reclaimed terracotta in kitchen (great, any marks only make it look better).

HolyShet Tue 17-Oct-17 21:40:08

original sanded and waxed floorboards everywhere downstairs
apart from marmoleum kitchen through utility to downstairs loo
sisal boucle all the way through upstairs apart from waxed floorboards in bathroom

HAll is wood.
Kitchen is hard tiles (here when we bought house, but I don't like them) am about to replace with a good quality lino.
Top bathroom is laminate - is OK, but doesn't half show every speck of dust or fluff
Main bathroom is lino - really nice and warm
All other rooms carpet.

blueskyinmarch Tue 17-Oct-17 21:50:40

Kitchen, utility, dining room, downstairs loo and hall are all lovely big Italian tiles.

Family room is carpet

Sitting room is oak

Sunroom is

Stairs, landing and three bedrooms carpet.

One bedroom laminate as DD2 didn’t want carpet

blueskyinmarch Tue 17-Oct-17 21:52:03

Oops posted too soon.

Upstairs bathrooms all tiled floors

Sunroom tiles are terracotta.

Currently have victorian sanded varnished original floors in hall, lounge, dining room and two bedrooms.
Black granite in kitchen.
Mosaic tile in bathroom.
Carpet on stairs and landings.
Sheet vinyl in snug and attic room.

In next house Im having wood upstairs, wood or wood effect tile (if i can afford under floor heating) throughout the downstairs.

Vinyl or lino in the bathrooms.
If i do an attic room i will do vinyl or lino also as really dampens sound.

No idea as to the stairs as hate most carpet and the thought of stuff lying in it, no matter how much you hoover.

Would love vinyl stairs, is that such a thing?

DesperateHouseknife Tue 17-Oct-17 21:59:38

Brick in the Buttery, flags in the hall, cloakrooms etc. Quarry tiles in various corridors, kitchens, utility. Oak floorboards elsewhere, elm stairs. A carpet in the dressing room, tiles and floorboards in bathrooms. Thresh in the small parlour (experiment, don’t ask.)
