- We have a dog; and not just any dog, a dog that likes coming home from his walks with dirty paws. I wasn’t having my pupper run mud all over a carpet when flooring is so much easier to clean.
- My powerchair; when I’ve been out in the rain (on the odd occasion I go out when it rains) or been on the dog walk and gone over fields, my wheels get rotten and I didn’t want to drive that into my house.
- My powerchair (I know I’ve just said this but go with me); it’s so much smoother to drive over wood flooring in a wheelchair.
Ian had never fitted laminate flooring before and because we have six doors going off our hall (bungalow life) he wasn’t confident in doing all the cutting etc. so I got a man in to install it for us. Due to the amount of doors, it took about five hours to fit but would have been considerably less if there wasn’t so many door-frames to take into consideration. The actual boards were really easy to slot together and if we hadn’t had so many cuts to make, Ian would have easily done it himself because the boards just click into place like jigsaw pieces.
The main selling points of Quick-Step flooring is how aesthetically pleasing it is, how much choice there is available (seriously, go on their website, there’s so many colours and finishes), how easy it is to maintain (hello mucky puppy and muddy wheelchair tyres), and that it’s water resistant; so much so that you can use it in the bathroom or kitchen as an alternative to tiles.
Quick-Step Impressive Ultra Classic Oak Natural has taken my hall from an awful floral pink (it was so hideous when we moved in) to a stylish, modern entrance and I love it!
If you’re redecorating and fancy a change, I highly recommend checking out Quick-Step, they won’t be beaten on quality (and I’ve just called my brother, and he recommends them, too)!

I love the course you chose and I bet Ted appreciates a nice cool floor in the heat. Makes me want wooden flooring tbh haha and makes a lot of sense to have wooden flooring for you! Xx
