The floor of a house or commercial establishment may not be the first thing you notice on-premise but you eventually get around to either admiring its aesthetics and quality or turning your nose up at it! Floors either add to or detract from an otherwise appealing interior. But beyond the superficial, good quality flooring is also important from a practical point of view. After all, it is the foundation of your home or office interior.
Your floor weathers a lot of traffic each day, which can cause chipping, fading and staining over time. All flooring options offer their own advantages and trade-offs with regard to durability and maintenance. Some are designed for high-traffic areas while others make low-maintenance and easy upkeep a priority. You'll also find flooring solutions that tick all your boxes. In a nutshell, the overall desirability and value of a flooring product is dependent on several factors and individual preferences.
Regardless of the flooring ideas you have in mind, it pays to make quality a priority. That means adherence to international standards for quality coupled with flawless installation. The good news is that the flooring products on BBK Direct are the world’s most top quality brands, crafted to the highest quality management standards, so all that will be left for you to do is simply install.
Wooden flooring is an excellent long-term investment. Solid wood floors are valued for their beauty, warmth and character. They create an illusion of space and transform the look and feel of interiors easily. The large choice in wood species, stains, patterns and colors allows for much experimentation. Whether you want a modern or rustic interior, the right wooden flooring product can bring your ideas to life!
If you're looking for budget flooring material, vinyl is hard to beat. Long-term warranties on vinyl flooring can be as much as 20 years, so it is also a durable material. You have a vast choice in styles to choose from, many of which mimic the appearance of expensive, luxurious materials such as wood and marble. Vinyl floors are easy to maintain, requiring a sweep or mop-up from time to time.
Engineered wood flooring technology has advanced rapidly over the years. Engineered wooden floors are available in a range of colors and styles, with superior quality products being virtually indistinguishable from solid plank floors. Resistant to moisture, these floors can be nailed down, glued or placed using a tongue-and-groove system.
If you ask around for eco-friendly flooring options, chances are that laminate will be suggested to you. That's because laminate flooring is a synthetic product made from recycled natural resources. It can imitate the look of wood or stone, and as such, is malleable to an array of design requirements. Durable and scratch resistant, laminate flooring has stood the test of time and continues to be a sought-after option in homes across the UK.

Solid wood was one of the earliest materials used for construction of floors. Despite the advancements made in technology, it continues to be one of the most popular options amongst designers across the world for the simple reason that it offers unparalleled warmth and beauty. At BBK Direct, we offer high quality solid wood flooring for the people who love to keep things classic.
All solid hardwood floors evoke richness and charm within the home, but not every design and wood species are created equal. Here is a short guide to help you choose the right solid wood flooring for your home.
The place you plan to install the flooring has a huge influence on the quality and features of wood you choose. If you plan to install the flooring at the ground floor, where it may interact with more water and moisture, you will need specially treated solid wood. If you are planning to install solid wood flooring on higher floors, make sure that your home's structure can bear the weight of solid wood.
The species of trees that the wood belongs to adds a distinct personality to the flooring with their unique color and gain patterns. Maple and oak are known for their hardness while Brazilian cherry and mahogany offer a lovely appearance. The harder the wood, the more durable it will be to scratches and tears.
The finish on the wood can have an impact on the color, feel and the durability of the flooring. A high quality finish provides a long lasting luster to the wood and factory applied finishes are always better than site-applied finishes. You may even invest in some wood finish to maintain the flooring and maximize its lifespan.

Once installed, the majority of people cannot tell the difference between engineered wood flooring and solid wood flooring. But that is not the main reason that home owners choose it. Engineered wood flooring is seriously tough, it does not expand and contract as much as solid wood, it manages to add an element of sophistication and class to the room without costing you a fortune. At BBK Direct, you can find a collection of engineered wood flooring that will suit your design requirements.
Not all engineered wood floors are created equal. The large variety in styles and types can make it difficult to decide which one you want to install in your home. Given below is a short guide to help you narrow down to the ones most suitable for your requirements.
Engineered wood floors are created by gluing together several layers of wood, with their grains opposing each other so that they are less prone to movement. More layers means that the floor will be much stronger and resistant to expansion and contraction, even if the overall thickness remains the same.
The type of wood adds a unique personality to the floor, which is why it is more of a personal choice to go for the wood that suits the interior styles of your home. Walnut, merbau and other exotic woods are dark in colour and are more suited to modern themes, while maple and beech work well in more traditional settings.
The surface treatment influences the feel, color and the resistance to damage. Brushed finish highlights the texture of the wood, distressed finish makes it look vintage while satin finish provides a smooth sheen to the surface. Choose floors that have as many finishing layers as possible as it lasts much longer.

Wood flooring is one of the most sought-after amenities in a home because of its warm underfoot feel, ruggedness and timeless beauty. But hardwood flooring can be costly, difficult to install and maintain. Laminate flooring, on the other hand, is more durable, very versatile and much more cost effective, which is why it is so popular. At BBK Direct, we offer a huge collection of laminate flooring so that you can get one which is perfect for your home.
Laminate flooring comes in a nearly endless variety of textures, colors and finishes which can make it a daunting task to pick the right one. Here is a short guide that will help you narrow your selections down.
Choose according to thickness:
The thickness of laminate flooring does not contribute to the durability of the material, but it helps prevent warping and other issues. Thicker laminates are more resistant to bending and can even reduce noise, but there is no reason to choose a 12 millimeter thick flooring when an 8 millimeter one would suffice.
Pay attention to the AC rating:
Most manufacturers give you an idea of how durable the laminate would be by showing its resistance to wear on a scale of five. The lowest, AC rating 1, is designed for a home area with little foot traffic, like a bedroom. On the other end of the spectrum, AC rating 5 is meant to withstand some serious commercial traffic.
Find the right texture and design
Laminates come in an endless array of design options, and you can take full advantage of it by choosing the best color, texture and finish that goes with your home. It can be designed to look like wood or stone, and it can sport a matte, gloss, satin or natural touch finish.

The advantages that vinyl flooring offer are hard to beat. It's resistant to water and dirt, and it is one of the easiest floors to maintain. It's incredibly durable and can last for well over two decades. and it also has a felt or foam layer beneath the vinyl surface that provides a much softer flooring than tile or even wood. We at BBK know that you look beyond mere functionality when you choose vinyl flooring, which is why we have an extensive collection of attractive vinyl designs to suit every taste from the top quality brands.
Vinyl flooring does provide a lot of value for its price, but it can be difficult to choose the best one for your home. Given below is a short guide to buying the right one for your needs.
Vinyl floors come in two main types: sheets and tiles or planks. Vinyl plank floorings are manufactured in plank format and has a click or tongue and groove system that makes its installation a much easier and mess free. Sheet vinyl’s are prepared in rolls and can be cut according to the dimensions of the room, making it much easier to install seamlessly, but they do not always have that high end feel like vinyl planks do.
The thickness of the top most layer has a huge influence on the amount of wear that the flooring can tolerate. Some manufacturers also coat the surface with layers of urethane to make it more resistant to scuff marks, scratches and stains, and make the lustre last longer.
Vinyl flooring is considered to be an interior designer's dream because of the incredible versatility it offers. You can choose from an array of patterns to suit both traditional and modern design requirements. Printed vinyl gives a glossy finish to the floor while inlaid vinyls have a richer finish. Vinyl is also an excellent imposter, and can be designed to look like tile, wood and even stone. Pick one that compliments or contrasts your design, the choice is yours.
