    Alternatives to carpet

    Flooring Specialists

    I'd like to replace the carpet in the living room (16 m2) of my ground floor flat (circa 1900) with a new flooring type; something that I can easily wipe clean. Unfortunately, the room clearly slopes down on one side. I am aware that I can have the floorboards raised and the joists packed and levelled but worry about the cost of that process.
    Other than carpet, do I have any other options? Would linoleum or cork be suitable?

    "As long as the floor is flat even though it is out of level you can use laminate or LVT"

    "Laminate is a good option. And as you said, it’s ideal to level the floor, the laminate Installation van then last longer.

    Laminate is very easy to clean as long as you take care to use the right cleaning products so not to damage it.

    Ask for some tips when you get it installed."
